Good morning! We made it to Florida and the weather is amazing. We left Kentucky yesterday with the temperature in the 40’s and it’s already almost 70 degrees here. Hallelujah!! I’m going to soak up this weather and the time with my family.
This week I was feeling like I needed to do something different with my devotions and bible reading. I felt like I was a little spiritually dry. I’m sure many of you have felt that too so I’m sharing what I do when I’m feeling spiritually dry.
1. Confess it
Tell Jesus you’re feeling dry. He knows it and he understands. Jeremiah 29:13 You will seek me and find me when you seek me with all your heart.
God wants you to cry out to Him. A prayer for more of Him is a prayer that will never be denied.
2. Change up your Bible reading
We know reading God’s word is key for igniting our spiritual lives, but we struggle to know what to do when our Bible reading doesn’t seem to be transforming us into the image of Christ.
One thing you can do is change how you normally read the Bible. Try reading a different version of the Bible. I love the Amplified version, The Message, and the New Living Translation when I’m reading a book in in the Bible. Also try different devotional books.
3. Listen to Praise Music
This is one of my favorite things to do, especially when I’m on my elliptical machine. I crank my praise music up and have my own little worship service.
I was listening to No Longer Slaves this week and I’ve shared it before but it’s an amazing worship song. The words “You rescued me, And I will stand and sing, I am the child of God”, stuck with me all week.
Ladies, Christ has rescued us and we are children of God!!! Praise Him Today!
