Year 36 . . . . Philippians 3

I'm now 36. It's now July. I have 10 months left before I turn 37. My desire is to make the most of these 10 months ahead of me. Last year I made a list, a long list, of things I wanted to accomplish. I was able to check some things off the list, others I still struggle with. I want to make a new list for this year, or for these next 10 months. But first I must preface it with verses from Philippians 3 because my number 1 desire is to find out what God wants from me.

"....we who worship by the Spirit of God, who glory in Christ Jesus, and who put no confidence in the flesh-----"
"----the righteousness that comes from God and is by faith."
"Forgetting what is behind and straining toward what is ahead, I press on toward the goal to win the prize for which God has called me heavenward in Christ Jesus."
"....and take note of those who live according to the pattern we gave you."
"....Their destiny is destruction, their god is their stomach, and their glory is in their shame."
"....by the power that enables him to bring everything under his control, will transform our lowly bodies so that they will be like his glorious body."
1) Seek God everyday. Talk to Him. Walk with Him. Read about Him. Listen for Him. Listen to Him.
2) Have no other gods before Him. No OTHER gods. NONE. Not TV, Not Facebook, Not the computer, Not music, Not men, Not my children, Not food, Not work, Not ANYTHING!
Last year I had a list of like 33 items. This year, this is it! A list of two.
