“Begin with The End in Mind”
Pondering the title of today’s message, “Begin with the end in mind.” What is the first thought that popped into your head? This quote is from a very famous author Steven Covey, also known as the father of time management. He wrote The Seven Habits of Highly Effective People, many moons ago and now it has turned into a curriculum for school-age children. We are only going to focus on this one habit, “Begin with the end in mind.”
Life is an adventure because if the truth be told most of us are excited about how things start out but loose heart in duration. Think about the relationships, jobs, new cars, or new home feeling you have in the beginning. There is nothing like optimism and butterflies fluttering around when it is all new. We can see the potential at the starting line of a thing but somehow as time progresses we become weary, annoyed, and at times ready to throw in the towel. Then there are times when you continue to push, pray, push and pray more to make it just a little further.
This year might have started on all positive vibes or maybe not. However, you have made it into over half of 2022. Be encouraged regardless of what the middle of this year looks like---there is hope. Before Steven Covey, there was a prophet called Jeremiah who wrote in Jeremiah 29:11; “For I know the plans I have for you,” says the Lord. “They are plans for good and not for disaster, to give you a future and a hope.”
Regardless of where you are in life’s process, you have a future and hope because God's plans are for your good and not disaster. In the book of Revelation, God shows his holiness, he is the Alpha and Omega the beginning and the End. With a spiritual perspective continue to persevere with the hope and expectation you had in the beginning, knowing God has your end in mind!
