2013 Goals

At the turn of the year, a few of my roommates told me that they were setting their goals for 2013. I don't remember ever doing that before. My plans don't often pan out either because I get sick or I lose interest or I get caught up in the single-minded pursuit of something else before finishing. Most often, it's simply because I have no clear goals in mind as I pass from interest to interest.

For the first two months of this year, my "goal" was to do some kind of Star Wars something or other. That's been fun :) Now, it's March. I'm still working on my IN (Imperial Navy) costume, but I've also found myself sparked into Biblical history mode this week.

1. I want to investigate the "visitation" of God throughout Scripture. It's proving to be a fascinating topic! I think I'll start with a word study of "paqad." I'd like to read through the whole Bible with this concept in mind, but I've never actually read through the whole Bible in one run before. Maybe this year will be the year?

2. I want to finish that Kings table, but it's gonna take a while to do...

3. I want to learn more Hebrew. This one is a bit trickier. I progressed well in my studies when I spent 30-45 minutes every morning working through the textbook, but I haven't been feeling as well in the mornings this year. Maybe I need to get stricter about my bedtime. Or maybe I need to enroll in a class. Or maybe I need to take a different tactic and study vocab/grammar through a certain passage to keep myself more interested. I'm not sure :( I wish I lived closer to the Messianic congregation ;_;

4. I want to finish memorizing Zephaniah and start memorizing another book this year. This is just a matter of taking the time to do it. I also need to review Jonah, Habakkuk, and Nahum, as I've forgotten quite a lot.

Lord, I've felt so useless in my current church and so hopeless in this city. Make me mighty in Your Scriptures! Make me a prophet! Give me such joy when I spend time with You in prayer as when I dig through the Chronicles of the kings of Judah!
