We’re getting close to the start of a New Year, so I’ll tell you a couple of things I know to help if you’re a resolution-y sort of person:
1. There is only one thing that is necessary.
2. Time with Jesus matters more than most resolutions on your list.
In light of those three things, here’s my suggestion for your New Year: commit to fighting for time in the Word.
I blogged a while back about a Spiritual Bootcamp my friend designed for me. It was nothing new or groundbreaking. It was just a commitment to spend one month drenching myself in means of grace God has given to me; carving out time to work on my relationship with Him.
I was honestly shocked at how much it changed everything for me. (#gamechanger #forreal).
Here’s the deal: now is the time. There is this constant lie that there is coming a time or a season in your life where intimacy with God will be easier. Once your kids are in school, once you are settled, once your job slows down. Don’t believe the lie: today is the day. Now is the time.
No more excuses. Intimacy doesn’t happen accidentally. It takes intentionality. It takes discipline. It takes carving out time to listen and speak and learn the person you love. Intimacy with God works the same way.
I know it’s hard to do this alone, so if you want prayer, help or resources along the way, I would love to help.
Fill out this a simple form and I’ll send you some fun additional resource from me (up first: an easy reference guide to Bootcamp and a series of bookmarks you can keep in your bible to help you know what to do).
