Making this year count with your Spiritual Disciplines

I know what you’re thinking, another resolution post. I’ve read a ton and didn’t intend to add to the clutter. The more I thought about it, I just had to write this post.

We must evaluate how we spend time with the Spiritual Disciplines.

Have nothing to do with irreverent, silly myths. Rather train yourself for godliness; for while bodily training is of some value, godliness is of value in every way, as it holds promise for the present life and also for the life to come. The saying is trustworthy and deserving of full acceptance. For to this end we toil and strive, because we have our hope set on the living God, who is the Savior of all people, especially of those who believe.

1 Timothy 4:7-10 ESV

We must spend time this year training ourselves for godliness. So I wanted to take this month to really just talk through the importance of these disciplines and to keep them where they belong… habits designed to lead us into the presence of God.

I’ll walk through what I think are the most important habits that a Christian can develop in their life. The list isn’t exhaustive, but it’s prioritized.

  1. Bible Intake
  2. Bible Meditation
  3. Prayer
  4. Journaling

This week I’ll start walking through with you how I’ll do my Bible Intake this year and what I’ve done in the past hoping to help some folks take steps toward Christ.


What steps must you take in your walk with Christ this year?

What habit are you really looking to amp up?


Here’s a couple of books if you’re really looking to increase your disciplines this year:
