Setting Goals - Trick Cartoon


I'm drawing an old, beat up shoe. Did you ever notice how often you can be going down the road and see old shoes just lying in the street or gutter? There are not too many things in the world more worthless than an old shoe like that. A lot of people, however, feel just that worthless. They've been told that they're worthless, that they're stupid, that their parents never wanted them. Maybe some of you feel the same way today because someone has told you the same things and you're wondering why you should even bother to set goals for your life. (When shoe is finished step to side so audience can clearly see it stating your next sentence.)

No matter what has been said to you by other people, no matter how you are feeling about yourself, God highly values you and has specific plans and goals for your life. (Continue to draw clown.) In the Bible, Psalm 139, God says that before He formed you inside your mother's womb, He already knew you! God says that every day of your life was planned before one of them came to be—in other words, before you started living them. You are so valuable to God that He made an incredible plan and purpose for your life before you were ever born!

Just how good are God’s plans? God says, "I know the plans I have for you, plans for success and not to harm you, plans to give you a hope and a future (Jer. 29:11)." If you have felt as worthless as an old shoe (Step aside to show clown picture.), tonight is the time for that to change. Your life isn't worthless! It isn't hopeless! God plans and goals for you are fantastic ones with a hope and a future, plans for success! Clowns are used to represent joy and excitement. As you choose today to accept God’s great plan for you, a plan for a successful future, the excitement in your life will just be beginning!

(Trick cartooning is an easy teaching method that brings about phenomenal results in holding children’s attention—as well as adults’. It requires no drawing skills! Click here to read our conference class on Trick Cartooning!)
