What’s Next? The Next List

The original 30×30 bucket list is done. Woo hoo! Twenty-nine of the 30 items on the original 30×30 list have been checked and double checked. Thank you Lord! I celebrated, took the time to rest and regroup, and now it’s time to set the vision for the next list. What’s that phrase about objects in motion staying in motion? Oh yeah, so I guess it’s time to get my booty back in motion. This next list is a work in progress, so fair warning that things may shift and change. (It’s my list, I can do what I want. *te he*)

A wonderfully kind soul introduced me to the concept of a rotating 30×30 list–when you complete one item, add on another. That way you always have a variety of things to choose from. I like it! God willing and in no particular order, here’s what I have so far on the new Next List…let the games begin!

And for a little inspiration…

  • Delight yourself also in the Lord, and He will give you the desires and secret petitions of your heart.” Psalm 37:4 (AMP)
  • “And the Lord answered me and said, Write the vision and engrave it so plainly upon tablets that everyone who passes may [be able to] read [it easily and quickly] as he hastens by. For the vision is yet for an appointed time and it hastens to the end [fulfillment]; it will not deceive or disappoint. Though it tarry, wait [earnestly] for it, because it will surely come; it will not be behindhand on its appointed day.” Habakkuk 2:2-3 (AMP)
