Take A Personal Inventory!

Personal inventory!

Taking a personal inventory at least a few times a year can help you refocus the life your living to make sure you are living for Christ!


Take a personal inventory of yourself!

When was the last time you actually took a personal inventory?

Personal Inventory…

A personal inventory is just taking a close look inward and outward 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. 

There are three basic ways in which we live life.

First, of all how we see ourselves, second of all, how other people see us, and finally how God sees us which is how it really is! 

Before anyone can truly live life to the fullest, they need to take a personal inventory so they can clearly see where people were, and where are heading and also where they hope to go?  ~ Bill Greguska

Personal Inventory To Look At Yourself Objectively!

There’s nothing like rejection to make you do an inventory of yourself. ~ James Lee Burke

Matthew 7:3 “Why do you look at the speck of sawdust in your brother’s eye and pay no attention to the plank in your own eye?


Take A Personal Inventory Of Your Life…

It will help you examine your past, present, and future! 

  • Begin by sitting down quietly with God and write down on a piece of paper both of the negative things and also positive things affecting your life today to get a starting point to begin. You will need to make a decision that will make the difference.
  • Then with the help of prayer, ask God to show you what you need to do next. It is also a good idea to reach out to a friend, pastor, counselor or someone you know who can give you some real insights and encouragement.
  • You will most likely be surprised with what insights you will gain about yourself both good, and not so good, but keep in mind that we are all imperfect human beings.
  • Taking a personal inventory of life can be considered somewhat like a pep talk at halftime of a basketball game, evaluating what worked, and what did not work and figuring out a plan for the second half.

Consider These Personal Inventory Ideas:

  • God did not intend for us to wrestle with life all on our own. While you are working through your list, trust that God has a plan for your life and your job is to find out what God’s plan is during this time of your life.
  • You can also view our many pages and our online resources/phone help lines and by using our extensive drop-down menu on the top of the page. Tell yourself that the best thing to do is to try to focus on the solutions and stop focusing on the problems, by trusting that God has the answers that you need.
  • Take one thing at a time and do not get discouraged, but ask God to help you and if you need to do not be afraid to ask help from a friend or professional to find some encouragement!
  • If you have been encouraged in any way or have any questions, let us know and also share us with your friends on Facebook, Twitter, and those on your email list.
