I’m throwing you for a loop I’m sure by posting on a Tuesday, but tomorrow is New Year’s Day…it’s 2014, people! Can you believe it? A new year is always a good time to think on changes and starting new good habits.
You only have to be with me about 3 minutes to know that I believe firmly in establishing good habits, routines and disciplines when it comes to your spiritual life. Not so you can check off a box, but more because if it isn’t part of your daily routine, it isn’t as likely to get done.
One of the most basic disciplines is a personal time with God. Too many of us are missing the “personal” in a personal time with God. We go to church, maybe even small group but when it comes to just you and God…not so much. If we were honest, it’s more about the fact that we don’t really know what to do when we get alone with God. We’re willing to do it, but if we set aside the time, then what?
I wanted to point you to a great resource that I use that is free and available on the internet.
Bible Gateway is well-known, reputable site to read and study the Bible. That’s what I use it for. But, did you know that you can get quality daily devotional helps right in your inbox? Let’s be honest, even if you don’t have your personal time with God, you’re going to check email, right? Well, why not get a friendly reminder from some godly men and women that can help you learn to study the Bible? I just happen to like Bible Gateway. You can easily read passages of Scripture in different versions. It is easy to search for keywords and it helps that you can copy and paste Scripture right from their site.
If one of your resolutions is a closer, more personal walk with God in 2014, consider this easy, free resource.
Please note: I receive no compensation from BibleGateway.com for recommending their devotionals. I just like them…thought you might too.
