My Faith Strategy

Send to Kindle

More often than I can count, I am asked one of a few questions. One is “How do you do everything that you do?” or Another might be “How do you do it all?” Or sometimes they phrase it, “I don’t see how you do everything that you do.” More of a statement, rather than a question really.

No matter how they say it, most often I don’t know how to react to whatever way they choose to phrase it. Honestly, I don’t know how I do it “all”. And quite simply I don’t believe that I ever do it all. I am a person who has high hopes, big dreams, and many goals. My daddy taught me to be that way and my Heavenly Father gifted me with a few traits that help me to “make it happen.”

I have determined just this morning that the act of “getting it all done” really boils down to a few simple steps. I have dubbed this my faith strategy. You see, being a big dreamer and a goal setter I tend to do just that, “dream and set goals”. This makes for a person who is always creating something to do. I create many things for myself to do.

As a Christian, I seek God’s guidance on just what it is he’d have me to do at any given time and I wait for answers. So the first step in what I am calling my “faith strategy” is this:

Pray. Before I do anything else, make even one step in the project or even choose a given project I pray. God leads me then in the direction He’d like me to go. And I move on to step number two. Prayer however is a basic building block of the whole process, I return to prayer daily as a part of the strategy, so don’t ever believe that you can pray once and be done. The next step is necessary and one of my favorite parts of the strategy.

Set goals. I believe in setting goals. I have always been a goal setter and at times my goals were loftier than others. At times I have set myself up for disappointment by outdoing myself with my own goals, but I learned to “revamp” and start again. However, I believe in the old saying, “if you don’t aim for something you’ll miss it every time.” You have to have a goal to aim for, or you’ll wander around aimlessly for a long time. After setting the goals you move on to the next, important step.

Seek accountability. For a long time, I wondered why my goals were so unreachable, why I felt I was “spinning my wheels”, and even why I couldn’t, “get anything done”. I was day after day attempting to do too much too soon, or put my “cart before my horse”. I didn’t see how much I was really doing, I felt that I was going nowhere when I was actually getting somewhere I just couldn’t see it. That’s when I decided to seek accountability. Having someone in my life to point out where I was successful, to encourage me and to help me prioritize has been a huge blessing and has definitely been a vital step in my strategy. With this step accomplished you’ll be well on your way to the final step.

Just do it! It seems cliché, and it may be a little intimidating, but if you’re going to get anywhere you are going to have to take that step, you’re going to have to just do it. This will vary from project to project, sometimes this will be easier than other times, while some times, it will be “easier said than done.” But the fact is for any project to be finished, for any goal to become a reality, for any dream to come true, you must take action. That is what the final step is all about and it is how my strategy works.
