Why am I here – v3

Why am I here,
What is my calling;
How have I come to be
in this time and place?
 
When did this path begin,
from where did I journey;
How can this be God's plan,
What are my gifts?
 
Who am I really,
How can I be more faithful;
Why am I here, now,
What is my purpose?

“S.M.A.R.T. goal setting:

Specific: General goals are “fuzzy” goals;

make goals as specific as possible.

Measurable: Goals must be measurable so you can

monitor your progress as you work on them.

Actionable: Goals are designed to involve action;

they speak of something to be done.

Realistic: Your goals should involve faith,

but must be in touch with the reality around you.

Time-targeted: Every goal must have a deadline;

a time it should be completed and evaluated.”

Why am I here – v2

Why am I here
What is my calling
How have I come to be
in this time and place?
 
When did this path begin
from where did I journey
How can this be God's plan
What are my gifts?
 
Who am I really
How can I be more faithful
Why am I here
What is my purpose?
