Welcome to this special year end combination episode of the Spark Influence and By His Grace. Every year we close out the the by his grace podcast with a year in review and my husband Peter Phillip is my guest. Since we now do the Spark Influence podcast together I thought it would be fun to do a combo episode.
We are overwhelmed by God’s grace and provision in our lives in 2022. Misty Phillip shares highlights from this year including taking the the Spark Media Conference on the road to Nashville, traveling, speaking, and the Spark Radio Initiative that resulted in the Spark Media Hour on Upliftd KHCB radio. Peter and Misty discuss God’s goodness and faithfulness.
Peter and Misty both share the importance of goal setting. How they each set goals are exceeded their expectations. Misty shares the importance of balancing work and rest, and to plan rest time.
Spend time in prayer with the Lord, and in His word seeking what He has for you in the new year. they encourage you to seek the Lord’s will for your lives to create goals His way, asking God, “what do you want for me in 2023?”
One of the best ways to do this is by setting SMART goals.
S-specific: Set specific goals that are relevant to your life and career.
M-measurable: Make sure that you can measure your progress towards the goal.
A-achievable: The goal should be challenging but not impossible to reach.
R-relevant: The goal should align with your values, beliefs, and interests.
T-timely: Set a deadline for when you want to achieve the goal by.
A Look Ahead to 2023
Peter discusses how preparation, diversification, automation will be important in 2023. Misty shares the urgency of sharing the gospel as we await the return of the Lord.
