I know doubts are the adversaries way to derail you from your intended goal. I think all the opposition I have been dealing with is also a sure sign that I should press forward. My plans aren't necessarily spiritual but they can lead to some real spiritual gains.
For example, if I can trim my expenses, pay tithing and and fast offering I accomplished a spiritual goal.
If I can have a generous savings and emergency found, we can help fund our son's mission.
If we can get completely out of debt, live within our means then I can help fund many missions. That is my dream. To help fund many missions.
Short term goals are all about the money, honey..but my long term goals are all spiritual
I need to stop doubting my ability and just press forward. I know I have a long road ahead, but its doable and I can sacrifice now for gains later.
