A few days ago, when writing on Lamentations, I mentioned that I would circle back to this line. In Lamentations, it read:
Let’s take a good look at the way we’re living and reorder our lives under God.
Here, in Haggai, it reads:
Take a good, hard look at your life. Think it over.
I’m no rocket scientist, but I think God wants us to look at our lives every once in a while. Do some introspection. Do some reflection. Do some self-evaluation.
Be honest. Be realistic. And take some time to do it right.
The last time I did this, at the turn of the year, it was such a breath of fresh air. I was able to see where I had been, what I had accomplished, where I had fallen short, and how I had improved. I was able to set new goals, revisit my one page life plan, and see new opportunities in a new light.
Do yourself a favor and schedule a 2-4 hour date with yourself.
Bring paper and a pen.
See what happens.
