Radiating Healthy Habits in Life

Prioritize What Matters Most

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 Christian habits that will help you thrive in life. Being a Christian woman doesn't mean that you have everything together or that you're practicing your faith. If you're serious about your faith, 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 a practicing Christian woman? 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.

Would you like to experience a higher level of spiritual growth and come closer to the Lord? Open your heart to the Word of God and ask for His guidance in fulfilling this desire.

Here are some healthy habits that you can incorporate into your lifestyle for an immediate uplift:

  • Pray every day. Find inspiration for your prayer life by reading through our Daily Prayers.

  • Write your prayers down as a good habit.

  • Read your Bible every day. This is one of the top habits every Christian should do every day.

and helps you reach your goals."
