What are your goals for the Spring and Summer seasons? Do you have a destination vacation in mind? Granted if you have chronic illness or possible financial struggles, you might not have a trip to the beach planned.
We are about half way through the season of Spring, where flowers bloom and school is wrapping up. But, what if we chose to make the most of the last weeks of Spring… and set up goals designed to grow us this Summer too?
My goal is a new one this year. I want to spend more time reading the Word of God. I have a loft bunk bed, which gives me a spacious wall next to my mattress. Lately whenever I look at it, I am reminded of my “War Room” wall – where I can make the most of things and act out Philippians 4:8 and Colossians 3:2. I can write out Scriptures, Bible Study Quotes, or Prayers. Which is best use of this space. Seeing this wall, allows me to focus on the Lord.
To help me accomplish this goal, I am using YouVersion’s “60 Day New Testament Journey” alongside another app called “Bible Reading Assistant”. Side note on the Bible Assistant app: It gives you the opportunity to be alerted when its time for your quiet time. I have it turned off, because it is the most aggravating notification alert that I have e.v.e.r heard in my entire life. If I ever try to read the Bible in 30 or 90 days, that’s the kind of notification system I need to push myself into His loving arms and Word.
So, now that I have shared my own goal(s) for the Summer, what are some of yours? Be sure to comment below and share with me how I can pray for you. Or maybe, share your goal. One big goal like this works for me, but I need to cultivate ways to implement it. Like YouVersion keeping me on track, so I keep running into our Savior’s arms much more often!
Oh friends, get into the Word of God and spending time with Him through prayer is the best goal we could ever have. Let us keep running to Him – together!
