Set yourself up for Success in Bible Study & Prayer This Year

  #Refocused starts tomorrow right here on the blog and on the Facebook group! I am so excited to see what God is going to do! 

Before we get started, I have some tips to help us be consistent in any bible study and prayer in 2016!!! 

“Commit your actions to the Lord and your plans will succeed.” Proverbs 16:3

COMMIT- to carry out an action deliberately. 

Let’s be deliberate about growing with the Lord this  year. Girls, there is no better commitment you can make! Starting tomorrow for this study. Here’s our checklist: 

_Prepared: Our study is printed out and ready to make beautiful with our pens, pencils, and markers.  For me, part of this step includes having my coffee pot ready to hit the button in the morning!!!

_Time set: Think about your schedule & decide when you will do your study. I love getting up before everyone in the house to spend time with Jesus. But before bed may work better for you. 

But –#Refocus on God’s grace when these plans don’t make it to reality. 

Stay deliberate by committing to engage in God’s Word before you look at social media for the day. Download the bible app on your phone. Don’t look anything else until you read some of His Word. Look through the study & see what the few verses are for the day and click a pic of them to refer to throughout the day. 

Consistent in prayer- Don’t call anyone on the phone until you’ve spoken to God yet. This is great for car time! Unless you have talkative babies in the backseat 🙂 

These are just a few tips that have helped me stay focused on the Lord. Feel free to share any great ones you have. He is worth the focus!!!
