Do You Need New Too?

As I’m moving into 2017, I’m seeing something new about me.

I need more.

My old Bible study routine isn’t enough for me anymore.

Maybe it’s like an addiction or medication that has been taken too long. It’s like I’ve grown tolerant; I need different and I need new in order to stimulate growth in my life.

So, I’m trying to shake it up a bit.

Starting my day 

Each morning, I love starting my day with the Proverbs 31 Ministries’ First 5 App and Experience Guide. Opening up God’s word in a systematic way, going through one book at a time, fits the orderly gal in me. We’ve just started Joshua and Judges. It’s not too late to join us!

In the middle of my day, a pick-me-up is Encouragement for Today. It always puts God’s word right in the heart of what I’m going through.

Lastly, is the idea of “sandwiching” my day with God.

I like to read for at least 30 minutes each night to make the transition to sleep. Usually this is reserved for a light novel. But with so many new studies out, I’ve found this is a wonderful time to soak my mind in God’s word before I fall asleep.

Jana Kennedy-Spicer has introduced me to a whole new way of studying God’s word – Bible Study with journaling! If you’ve never given the peaceful practice of coloring a try … this is the time to try it out!

Maybe “new” is exactly what you need to begin pursuing God in a fresh way!

What steps are you taking to grow your faith in 2017?

Give one of these studies a try and then come back and let me how “new” is going!
