The Next 100 Days

I think the next 100 days for our family will be pretty pivotal. Recently, Katie and I both read through Mark Batterson’s book The Circle Maker and really felt like we needed to be more intentional with our prayer lives, pray bigger, bolder, more specific prayers and think more through the lens of legacy.

To that end, I want to ask for your prayers over the next 100 days.

Starting this week Katie and I are reading through the Bible in 90 days, which boils down to 12 pages a day. At the end of that, we are going to do a 10 day daniel fast with the intention of clearly defining our goals at the end of that.

One of the things that Batterson talks about in his book is creating life goals. We will be making goals in 5 categories: family, influential, experiential, physical and travel. The goal of discipleship undergirds all the categories and has to be a component of the goals we come up with.

We want to think through the legacy we will leave to our grandchildren and think through how we live the rest of our days with intentionality. If we’re lucky, we are a third of the way through our lives and want to make the most of each remaining for the kingdom.

We’d appreciate your prayers as we embark on this journey. We are excited, a little scared to see what God calls us to, but excited to let him use our lives as he sees fit.

  1. I recently finished reading the book Real Marriage by Mark and Grace Driscoll and at the end they talk about planning your life from the end backward… basically living purposefully instead of in constant reaction to whatever comes your way. You look toward the future and make a plan that will get you there. I think they called it “reverse engineering” your life. Sounds a lot like what you’ll be doing as far as the planning part goes. I’ll be praying for both of you!
