I love new beginnings (and second chances) and believe starting a New Year encourages both of these.

After all, when else do we get permission to start over?  We are encouraged to look back at our accomplishments, consider the challenges and determine what we want to do differently.
Or not.

I think that is why I love starting a new year with a leadership retreat and all-staff meeting. Let’s face it, work can get tedious, the challenges overwhelming, and discouragment tries to creep in … especially when you work in a hurting world.

Therefore it’s important that we encourage each other regularly and what better starting place than the beginning of a New Year?
So here’s a peek at us:

We begin every meeting with prayer and worship (acappella style) followed by a teaching from God’s Word.  This year the teaching is titled “So What?”
Are you curious?

Then we take a “look back” at the previous year. This invites us to celebrate all God accomplished and revel in the truth that He desires and is pleased by our collaboration.  SO. COOL.

Next we review God’s promises, purpose, and mission for Ignite South Africa to remind and re-ignite the passion for our work. It begins to stir the gifts that God deposited within us to ensure we accomplish what lies before us in 2018.

Finally, we fill in our year planner to see the big picture of where we are heading. This also inspires us to prayerfully consider and write our goals and action items.

I don’t know about you but I’m tired of planning something and finding it incomplete. God calls us to run our race which means – running and staying on the track.
To stay on the right track we need to be intentional = action items!

So, here’s to a year of intentional living.
Investing our time, energy, focus, and finances where we know they will increase.

Praying God’s blessings over you for a prosperous New Year!
