If that is too much for you feel free to pick one goal in each of the areas or even pick several of the areas to focus on for the coming year) Hope this is helpful.F

I’m not a ‘buffet-Christian’ where I believe we can pick and choose what verses to believe and what ones to ignore and so it’s very important to me that we address these passages in a solid and balanced way.
