Encouraging Verses For the Year

 I have to admit that I have never really been big into setting goals each new year. How about you? Do you set goals for yourself? Do you stick with them?

Now to be honest, I have set goals, in the past. However, I either will not stick with the goal, or I will go in the opposite direction. Meaning that I will get so obsessed with the goal that nobody is happy, especially me.

Just know that if you do set goals, I am here cheering you along your journey 👏.

I am including some verses to help encourage you as you go throughout the year.
