Inspired by a sermon heard on the radio..., I write my "to be" list to stay focused.
         TO BE

         Written to encourage and inspire me "to be" more like Him in every way.  These are my heart's greatest desires, and He has said that if I will delight myself in Him, he will give me the desires of my heart.  I will review these written items regularly to measure my progress and to keep myself focused.  I expect to add items as time passes and His grace increases.

I choose, intend --- it is my will and purpose to be:

*Note* delighted in Him
*Note* thrifty
*Note* content
*Note* righteous in Him
*Note* a student of His Word

*Note* the image of Him
*Note* His wholly/holy prophet
*Note* true to Him
*Note* the fruit of His Spirit, walking in and bearing His:  love, joy, peace, long-suffering, gentleness, goodness, faith, meekness and temperence
*Note* a bearer of my own crosses, without complaint
*Note* an example to everyone within my realm of influence
*Note* a great writer
*Note* friendly
*Note* a friend to everyone I meet and/or come into contact with on any/every level
