We Plan every aspect of our lives. We have calendars, car-pool schedules, dinner dates, work out times, and travel just to name a few. We would never think to not Plan our day, our appointments, our kids, and our fun. Why is it that we believe our Faith-walk is just going to happen?
Do you have a a Faith Plan? Do you systematically look for ways to Grow in your Faith? Do you have a clue how?
For many of us we rely on what we have been taught over the course of our lives. It may be attendance at church on Sundays, going to special events at Christmas and Easter, and/or taking part in traditions like Christenings and Weddings. For others it may be even more involvement through volunteering, mission trips, and other special programs. Yet, with all these ‘Religious’ activities there is a disconnect from God and a feeling of dissatisfaction.
You may have been in church for a long time, volunteered in many projects, and tried different Bible Studies; but, no matter what you are involved with you are not experiencing the same thing as everyone else. It is not clicking. This haphazard approach to your Faith-walk is not your fault, entirely. Why? You were only given part of the story. . . Many of us, myself included, were never given a ‘map’ to Faith growth. We were told to read our Bible, Pray, attended Services, Fellowship, etc. BUT, no one said How.
There is a How. It is unique to you. AND, there are methods of Bible Study, Prayer and Worship that speak to your heart and connect you to God that no large group setting or one-size-fits-all approach understands. Does it work? Of course. Will you Grow in your Faith? Yes. Will you be better Rooted in Him? Absolutely.
I know you are busy, that is life. The symbols above reflect many parts of our life: Faith, Food, Fitness, Focus, Friends. They are all good for us. They all deserve a place in our Calendar and they each need a Plan if they are to be successful. What areas do you need to Plan better? What should be the priority? You notice Faith is first. . . start there and everything else WILL be added to you.
