As someone who has battled with consistency in my own spiritual path, I've learned the value of building good habits that will allow me to stay connected with God on a daily basis. Today I will share what I'm learning right now.

πŸ’¬ Things like:

  • Key habits that can help foster a stronger relationship with God.
  • Practical tips for incorporating these habits into your daily routine.
  • Strategies for overcoming common obstacles, such as motivation.

Let's address the elephant in the room: establishing healthy habits is difficult! It's normal to continually fail newly formed habits.

We all want to do better and be better. But, who doesn't struggle to find time for prayer and Bible reading in the midst of a hectic schedule? And don't forget about those days when we just don't want to do anything spiritual at all!

  • Are you unfaithful?
  • Are you sinning?
  • Are you just not as 'good' as other people?

No. You're just human.

But don't worry; I'll face these difficulties straight on and present you with actionable solutions. Whether you're a seasoned believer or just getting started on your spiritual path, I hope this helps you develop your relationship with God.

πŸ”Ž Identify Key Habits

  • Focus on your conversations with God: We all know about prayer, but how frequently do we really make it a priority? Your spiritual life is incomplete without the practice of prayer. It's a chance to get in touch with God and have a conversation with Him about anything. Start small and let it build.
  • Read the deep and shallow parts of the Bible: You likely don't read the Bible regularly because you don't understand it. Reading the Bible, though, is like taking a spiritual vitamin every day. It's a way to nourish your soul and gain wisdom and understanding. Splash in the shallow end and slowly wade into deeper water. Whatever you do, do not sit on the shore and sunbathe.
  • Worship is not just reserved for Sunday mornings at church: It's a way to honor God and express our love for Him. This can take many forms, such as singing, playing music, or simply giving thanks. The time I spend playing with my kids outside is a form of worship to me because I know the way I father honors God.
  • Fight the modern disease of loneliness: Life is better together, especially when it comes to your spiritual journey. Surround yourself with other Christians who can encourage, hold you accountable, and give support. Join a small group or find a mentor to guide you on your spiritual journey.

β™₯️ Tips for Incorporating Key Habits

  • ⏰ Set A Time And Stick To It: Integrating healthy habits into your daily routine might be difficult, but one practical first step to ensure you make time for them is to schedule specific times in your day. "I don't have time," is simply not true. You don't make time. Consider making daily time for prayer and Bible reading. Start your day with prayer or finish it with Bible reading. Select a time that works best for you and commit to making it a priority in your daily routine.
  • β›ͺ️ Find a Church Community: You're not religious or spiritual if you don't regularly meet with other Christians. Joining a church community is an excellent opportunity to connect with other Christians and grow in your faith. Surrounding yourself with people who share your values and views will give you the encouragement and support you actually desire.
  • 🎢 Listen to Worship Music: Listening to worship music in the car, at work, or at home is a terrific way to connect with God throughout the day. It may elevate your spirits, concentrate your attention on higher things, and help you keep focused on what is most important.
  • πŸ’¬ Seek Inspiration from Others: It can be inspiring and motivating to hear about how other people have grown closer to God. Talk to friends, family, or mentors who have a strong faith and ask them how they incorporate healthy habits into their daily lives.

πŸ›‘ How To Finally Overcome Key Habit Obstacles

It's no secret that it can be hard to form healthy habits. Many of us have trouble with things like not having enough time or enough motivation.

But it's time to figure out a solution that works.

One way to get past these problems is to put your habits in order of importance. Set aside time every day for prayer, reading the Bible, worship, and getting to know other people. You might have to change your schedule or do other things to spend more time with God, but remember that it's worth it.

Another idea is to find someone to hold you accountable. This could be a family member or friend who shares your faith and is also trying to build healthy habits. Check in with each other often to help, encourage, and push each other.

Last, don't forget how much prayer can help. When it's hard to get going or you're facing other problems, turn to God for strength and direction. He is always there to help us get through hard times and grow closer to Him.
