Monthly Message from Pastor Bob Beyer

It is GRADUATION time for all seniors, and these are words of guidance as you continue your journey forward.  

I would like to begin by sharing a story I came across.  It is a story about an expert marksman who in passing through a small town was surprised at what would seem to be evidence of some of the most amaazing shooting he had ever seen.

On trees, fences, and barns, he found countless targets with a bullet hole in the center of the bullseye.  He had never seen such shooting, such accuracy before.  There were no misses, not even a close-to-center shot. The bullet hole was always in the center.  Finding the man responsible for such markmanship, he remarked, "This is the most wonderful shooting I have ever seen.   How in the world did you do it?"  Easy as pie, the man answered, "I shot first and drew the circles afterward."

Some serious reflection on the story could result in some positive results in the matter of setting goals.  The marksman simply shot his gun without thought of a target.  His aim didn't matter.  The goal was determined after the trigger was pulled.  But what is your goal?  What is your aim in life?  It's important to know.  In Philippians 3:14, Paul wrote of "pressing toward the mark for the prize of the High Calling of God in Christ Jesus."

Someone has written that the difference between a pilgrim and a vagrant is clear.  A pilgrim is one who is traveling to a certain place.  A vagrant is a mere stroller with no settled purpose or goal.  Here are some goal setting tips that will keep you on target.

1)  DETERMINE YOUR GOAL:  The world is full of people who don't know what they want to do or what their goals are.  It may be that God hasn't revealed exactly what He wants you to do.  But you should be sure that your problem isn't a simple matter of failure to seek His will or your failure to get down to business and give goals some real consideration.  

A person in the will of God should at least know the general direction and plan for the future.  The Lord will give details as to how to get there.  But you must take the initiative.  

Goal planning is important.  A number of options ought to be considered. Expose yourself in prayer to the will of God and determine whether or not He would have you in full-time Christian service.  It should always be considered as a possibility.  Then leave yourself open to His leading.  

2)  PLAN WITH YOUR GOAL IN MIND:  Once you have determined either generally or specifically what God's will is for you, plan your life accordingly.

3)  STICK WITH YOUR GOAL:  Dont be distracted from your goal.  A foxhound that settles for a rabbit along the way is a disgrace to his owner.  Don't let a rabbit by the wayside turn your head from your goal.  Charles C. Noble said, "You must have long-range goals to keep you from being frustrated by short-range failures."

4)  STAY IN THE RIGHT DIRECTION:  Personal, periodical evaluation is important. People, like tacks, are useful if they have good heads and are pointed in the right direction.  

5)  PLAN YOUR WORK AND WORK YOUR PLAN:  Goals are important but you must do something about them.  Direction without action will result in failure. Remember, the first two letters in the word goal are G-O.

So, determine your goal, plan accordingly, stick with it, go in the right direction, and don't give up.  Then on a distant day, you wont find yourself drawing circles around the bullet holes.  What's more, you will have the satisfaction of knowing that your aim for your life is the same as the Lord has for you.
