How to Care for your Spiritual Well-Being

Standard

“When our lives get busy, one of the areas that an suffer is our spiritual health. We might do ‘churchy’ things like go to Bible study or church on Sunday, but that’s where things end. We don’t actively pursue our relationship with our heavenly Father. Your spirituality is personal. It will look different than someone else’s.” – Jessica N. Turner, The Fringe Hours

Here are some ways to nurture your faith…

1. Pray. 

  • “Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God.” Philippians 4:6
  • Strategic Prayers and Spontaneous Prayers
  • God hears our prayers, and He desires to commune with us in this manner.
  • Consider keeping a prayer journal.
2. Serve in your Local Church.
  • This is where we connect with other believers in a corporate setting to meet with God, study his word, and worship.
  • Do more than just attend services.
  • Get involved with what God is doing, and join Him in his work there.
3. Be in Community. 
  • Fellowship with other believers is an important part of a person’s faith journey.
  • Small Groups, Bible Studies, etc.
  • Doing life together with other like-minded people
4. Read and Study the Bible. 
  • The Word of God is alive, and the more we read it, the more we become in tune with God.
  • The One Year Bible is a great resource.
  • The YouVersion Bible app is another great tool.
5. Feed yourself with Spiritual Things.
  • Books, Music, Blogs, Podcasts, etc.
  • Be intentional in growing your faith.
