I am a firm believer that "if you fail to plan, you plan to fail". That being said I should have a strategic plan in mind. That plan having an outcome (expectation). I have been taught the SMART plan. SMART goals are Specific, Measurable,Attainable, Realistic and Time appropriate. I do not feel compelled to write goals as I prepare for this journey. I feel that if I go with expectations, I will set limits on God.
I have learned that when I ask God specifically to handle things the way I feel they should be done, God shows me that HIS thoughts are higher than mine. He is able to do exeedingly, abundantly above all that I I can ask or think, according to his power that works in me.. (Ephesians 3:20)
My goal is to be open to the prompting of the Holy Spirit. I am praying that I will see the daughters of Kenya through his eyes. He will lead, and I will follow. My desire is that I can help somebody as he gives me power.
