The Christian journey can be hard at times and it is a bad idea to go at it alone. Community is very important. I speak from experience when i say this. I believe that having accountability is important. I have failed many times when i try to do something alone. At this time I do not have close friends that share my faith so I am using this space to help me stay accountable in this season. I want to share my goals to improve my walk with God during this year.
Prayer is the most important part of the Christian life. I have always had trouble focussing when I am in prayer. My goal this year is to really make it a point to pray with purpose and not just pray out of a routine. I tend to pray the same words in the same order each time and I do not want to be a robot anymore. I really want to talk to God.
This year my goal is to get away from worldly music and focus on listening to music that truly worships God. I admit that I still struggle in this area. I still find myself listening to Taylor Swift from time to time. I hope to fill my music time with hymns and truly spiritual songs.
I have made it a point to read the Bible cover to cover each year for the past few years and I have learned a lot from this. I hope to continue this during this year. I am reading through the Old and New Testament at the same time. I also want to read more Bible plans. I have found great devotionals on the YouVersion app.
