This is the time of year when everyone sits down to plan the year for themselves, their families, their work, and so on for the upcoming year.

I do, too!


I love planning! In fact, I set aside time once a week to specifically plan the upcoming week for my family and myself- meals, schoolwork, church activities, extracurricular activities for the kids, and upcoming special days that I want to celebrate.

But as we are making our plans, let’s remember one very important person in our planning.

The Lord.

As you write down your goals, don’t make Him have to peek over your shoulder. Invite Him to sit beside you, to give His input, to say yes and no as He sees fit.

He already knows how 2024 is going to go for you and your family.

Let Him be a key figure in the planning phase.

I pray that you allow God to help you plan a beautiful year, my friends.
