Are you looking for a planner for Christian women? Are you wondering if the 2021 Made to Give Life Planner can work you? Then, this post is for you!
2020 threw at us a season we did not anticipate.
After tossing my Made to Give Life Planner aside in February and March when the pandemic forced everything to shutdown, come April, I needed help gaining perspective.
I don’t know about you, but after so many weeks at home with no end in sight, I was having a hard time keeping my hopes up. I needed to believe COVID was a season.
A hard season, yes.
A season with no apparent end, but a season nonetheless.
Even though every ounce of me did not want to pull out my Made to Give Life Planner in April 2020, I did anyway because I knew I needed the questions in my spring check-in.
After a year like 2020, it’s so tempting to say, “What’s the point of setting goals?” or “What’s the point of making plans?”
I get it.
But it’s important to know what season you’re in, taking inventory of the people, resources, and gifts available to you right now.
Being intentional and seeking to use your time for the good of others, is what this is about.
Living intentionally is not about you.
It’s not about you becoming a better person or even a better version of yourself (though this is sure to happen).
As Christian women, we are made to be productive and create culture and to do good to others.
It’s tempting to draw from the wellspring of the past and long for a future season, all while missing the possibilities of the RIGHT NOW season.
Yes, things look very different right now.
Yes, it’s hard to know how to set goals or make plans right now.
But that’s why I created the Made to Give Life Planner.
It doesn’t matter what’s happening around us, this planner for Christian women is going to guide you into the presence of the Lord.
In each season, it is a grace to us to stop everything and get before the Lord and ask ourselves:
- How am I doing?
- What’s going on in my heart right now?
- What am I doing right now that needs to be set aside?
- What am I not doing that I need to be doing?
When life gets overwhelming, having a routine of getting before the Lord in place helps you to reset, stay focused, and remain faithful to your calling no matter what gets thrown your way.
The worldwide shutdown nearly paralyzed me.
But then God in His goodness whispered, “Use your Planner.”
So, I stopped thinking about what was going on “out there,” and I got into the presence of the Lord.
I stopped worrying about all the things that were changing, and I got into the presence of the Lord.
I stopped wondering when this was all going to just end, and I got into the presence of the Lord.
With its carefully timed evaluations, and purposeful questions, I was able to journal and consider the ways and works of God in my life.
I was reminded that this is a season, and in this season I still have a job to do. I still have a family to raise. I still have a message to proclaim.
I didn’t put a single appointment or event on my calendar, but my purpose had not changed.
He is the good news.
If your why for living intentionally isn’t rooted in the gospel, then your why isn’t big enough.
Because the gospel changes everything.
After a year like 2020, you need to be reminded that you are a woman, and you were made to give life.
You still have a purpose.
You still have hope.
You still have life in your lungs, and in 2021 you can breathe holy life back into your home, your church, and your community.
So, will the Made to Give Life Planner work for you?
I don’t know. I guess it depends on whether or not you actually use it.
My husband asked me the other day, “Why do people sign up for your emails?”
Why do Christian women read this blog?
Regardless of what drew you in, you’ve stuck around for some reason or other.
My guess is, it has something to do with wanting to grow, and wanting to be more intentional in your life.
You want more than cookie-cutter Christianity…
I’m right there with you, sister.
The truth is though that I can inspire you all day long, week-in and week-out – that’s my goal anyway.
But at the end of the day, I can’t do it for you.
You have to engage the process of being intentional and do it yourself.
I can give you the tools, but you have to invest in change with focus, time, and discipline.
You have to be willing to ask yourself the hard questions, and then be honest in response.
You might think there’s too many questions, too much involved with the Made to Give Life Planner.
Maybe there is, but maybe there isn’t.
The point of the Made to Give Life Planner is to help Christian women bring to light the things that are hidden, so they can deal with them.
For it is only what is brought out into the light that can be changed, healed, and renewed.
Friend, our world needs you.
Our world needs you to show up again this year.
Our world needs you to be who you are by grace, not the you that you are naturally.
I want to help you in this process.
