Good Habit Number One: Your Relationship with God

In life, we all have an endless list of aspirations and objectives. However, sometimes it's necessary to put everything aside and focus on what really matters. For me, it is following God's calling. As a new grandmother, I prioritize being the best one I can be. (See pictures) Similarly, as a pastor's wife, I strive to be an exemplary role model. As a loving and respectful wife, I aim to create a warm and caring home environment. And as a mother to adult children, I approach my role with caution and unwavering support.

It's important to cultivate healthy habits that will help you thrive in life. Being a Christian woman doesn't mean that you have your act together. If you're serious about your faith though, it's essential to act and behave in a way that aligns with your beliefs. As per God's word, only those who hear and practice His teachings will be with Him in heaven.

Jesus said, "Whoever does the will of God, he is my brother and sister and mother. My mother and my brothers are those who hear the word of God and do it." (Luke 8:21 NIV).

Are you living as Christian woman? Have you established good, healthy, spiritual habits? Do you read your Bible every day? Check out "3 Things Every Christian Should Do Each Day" to help you on your journey and set your heart on fire for the Lord.

As believers, we are God's workmanship and should take pride in the good work He is doing within our hearts. Even when we face trials and temptations, we are called to "count it all joy" because these experiences can strengthen our faith. To attain perfection, Christians must undergo many trials and tests, which is why we all strive to be our best selves and achieve spiritual perfection through Christ. However, that being said, discouragement has a way of creeping into our lives and rearing its ugly head.

Read our Prayer Prompts for the Heavy-Hearted and find renewed joy in the Lord.

Would you like to experience a higher level of spiritual growth? Are you ready to discover and apply good habits to your life? Open your heart to the Word of God and ask for His guidance in fulfilling this desire.
