I came across A. W. Tozer’s Seven Questions for Self Discovery recently and have been thinking through each one as I reflect back on all that has happened this year and what my goals are for 2019.
1. What do I want most?
2. What do I think about the most?
3. How do I use my money?
4. What do I do with my leisure time?
5. Whose company do I enjoy?
6. Who and what do I admire?
7. What do I laugh at?
Every new day is a gift that enables us to start over and make changes, but I tend to think more deeply about these things at the end of December when I’m considering if I accomplished what I had set out to do at the beginning of the year.
One question that particularly struck me was how I use my leisure time. So often I spend it social media or watching TV, and I feel like it keeps me from achieving the goals I have set for myself. In the coming year, I’d like to focus more time on reading, writing, and outdoor fitness. Did any of these questions make an impression on you?
Thanks for reading and Happy New Year!
