Want To Take A Personal Inventory?

Personal inventory!


Please contact us if you have any questions or comments or want some encouragement.

I have taken inventory of my life many times. I have found that my quiet time with the Lord is a great time and place to do that. I also have gone to restaurants all by myself to have coffee or tea and sit alone to think of areas in my life that need attention. I have used the back of the placemat at the restaurant to write my thoughts and feeling down to get a better perspective on things.

Romans 6:1-2  What shall we say, then? Shall we go on sinning so that grace may increase? By no means! We are those who have died to sin; how can we live in it any longer?

A personal inventory helps you get your life in perspective. Before we can fully live, we should take a personal inventory — a closer look at our lives to improve our plans for the future. A personal inventory is just looking inward and outward at where our life is heading. Make a list of your strengths your weaknesses, and ask God what He wants you to do with your life from this point on. Before we can fully live our lives, we need to take a personal inventory and take a closer look at our life so we know where we are coming from and where we are heading. Many people seem to drift by in life, making the same mistakes repeatedly, not learning or growing!
