As we come near the end of 2022, I felt it was important to share what I have been learning on my own journey for this year in terms of accountability. I came face to face with death again, and I was told “you cannot David Goggins you’re way out of this anymore.” To me, his teachings and methods are still the answer, however, I felt that what was being communicated to me from my pastor and those who loved in my life also mattered as well.
One night while going through some deliverance with the Holy Spirit, it became clear to me that part of me fighting present moment experiences were due to my intense immersion on the Buddhist path, and I needed some healing from that. After I did my work with the Holy Spirit, the passage of Matthew 6:34 came to me. “Therefore, do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about its own things. Sufficient for the day is it’s own trouble.”
For myself, I have felt a sense of urgency for what I have been through in my life. To get things done. To not take time for granted or people for granted. To honor my word. To follow through on what I will say I will do. I have said this many times. Time is the greatest illusion that we live in. We often think that “oh, I will get this done later or I will have this conversation another time. However, the truth is, we don’t know if we will get another day.
My intention for 2023 is to take one day at a time and to truly start living from my Spirit, and not from my soul. I am interested to see what accountability will look like from this perspective and if the desires of my heart and pleasing God will move faster instead of feeling stuck in the mud. I wish you the best in 2023 of accountability with the Lord.
