A Checklist With Real Purpose Faithful 31 Moms

    • Kids & Family

3 things that will help get your New Year off to a great start by spending consistent time with Jesus. When you lay your head down at night, dirty dishes, unfinished checklists and all…you can still rest knowing your day was accomplished with purpose.
A consistent time and Bible reading plan or devotional is key—so here are three ways to start:
Set a time that works for you to spend time alone with the Lord—preferably morning before your family is up—But if that isn’t doable because you work night shift or working a home night shift with a newborn—then find a time that works for you and stick to it. Then I will also include in the show notes several mom-friendly devotionals* or scripture writing plans that I have found work for me. I realize most of us don’t have time to do a long in depth study everyday—I know I don’t…I have the benefit of studying the Bible for work…but even that cannot be substituted for my alone time with the Lord. I have learned that the hard way. Then find a way to share or encourage someone else with what the Lord teaches you each day. Share it with your kids, with your husband, with a friend or even with the clerk at the grocery store… These 3 things will help get your New Year off to the right start to spending consistent time with Jesus and when lay your head down at night, dirty dishes, unfinished checklists and all…you can still rest knowing your day was accomplished with purpose. 
* List of Devotional Ideas:
“Awaken” by Priscilla Shriller. A daily short read, packed with scripture and an easy to follow break down of how to apply it to your life, including space to journal in the book each day. https://www.amazon.com/Awaken-Days-God-who-Speaks/ The Daily Grace Co. is an online store that has lots of good devotional options that are wonderful and affordable! Some of my favorites are: “Daughters of Grace” and “Even So.” https://thedailygraceco.com  A simple place to start is the “100 Days of Bible Promises” devotional journal by Shanna Noel. It’s just a topical thought, some Scripture and a place to sketch or journal prayers. https://www.amazon.com/100-Days-Bible-Promises-Devotional/  Find Scripture Writing Plans on our website faithful31moms.com or from our Love Worth Finding Partner https://www.lwf.org/scripture-writing-plans.
