The start of the year is a perfect time to take stock. The season has ended and another is starting. You can take a good look at what’s been going on about you, what worked and what didn’t work. You can upgrade, downgrade or download accordingly. stock taking enables you to properly evaluate and strategically plan for the year ahead.
I encourage you to make a list of the things you need to repeat, keep doing and even improve. Also make one of the things you need to leave alone and move away from. We all have things, habits, lifestyles and even people we need to move away from. I am talking about toxic situations that drain you of all strength to do life. Your stock taking will give you a good idea about your past as you prepare for your future and the “things to leave behind” list is very critical.
SCRIPTURE READING: Proverbs 27:23
Be diligent to know the state of your flocks, [And] attend to your herds;
DEVOTION PRAYER: Dear God, thank you for 2018. I am grateful for the things, habits, lifestyles and people who blessed my life. I choose to leave behind everything that drains my strength to do life in Jesus’ name, Amen.
