living life out of a bucket of dreams & grace

Goals that are not written down are just wishes.....unknown

Fiona & Twig

I love a challenge. I have some friends who have a bucket list or 40 before 40 lists and it inspired me to do my own at the beginning of the year. I am finally getting around to doing a post on it.  One thing He is teaching me is we need each other.  I have a big list and upon looking at it I almost want to not even try.  Sharing my goals and dreams with others opens the door for words of affirmation, encouragement and words that build up.  I figured sharing my bucket list here on my blog was a good place to start. Posting my goals will help me to stay on track and be a catalyst to getting stuff done and it keeps me accountable to my word too. The enemy of our soul..dreams.. and callings likes to whisper words that cause us to doubt ourselves and God and the goodness He desires for our lives. I was reading Isaiah this morning and I love what Hezekiah told the people..." But they were silent and answered him not a word; for the king's commandment was, " Do not answer him." { Isaiah 36:21} I am going to think on this when I'm whispered to...I'm not even going to answer a word back.  Just turn away and believe God.

I'm going to come back to this list whenever I complete one and mark it off and put the date beside it.  Have you made a Bucket List and if so how do you stay on track with checking things off?   I would love to hear your Bucket List:)
