We are three days into this month and so much has already happened!! I am now employed once again (THANK YOU JESUS), I am also becoming closer to God and I can tell you I haven’t felt this good in a while!!
So starting March first I decided I was going to do daily devotionals. This was hard because I didn’t kn0w where to look and what to study. I found a website called Student Devos (click the link to check it out!) It has been so so so amazing! It’s only a verse a day but that one verse has a little section of analyzing and motivation in it. It gives me so much inspiration and I can find a way that that exact verse helps me.
Here’s a picture of what it looks like: I loved this devotional because, although it may be simple, it applies to every one of us!!
So each day I do a devotional. I take 15-20 minutes out of my day to stop everything, put my phone down, and play Christian music and focus on what I am reading. I bought a really cute new journal and each day is a new page. I write down the date and the verse at the top of the page. Then I go on to take notes about what the devotional says and then I write my thoughts about the verse. After that I write down my prayers. Since I am not good at actually talking to God I find it much easier to write it down and release it to him.
Here’s an example of one of my devotionals:
Overall, life has been pretty decent. I’m moving on from the past and finding happiness in what I have in my life and not what I don’t. I see God working through my life and giving me opportunities to share his word with others. I’m excited to see what the months leading up to colleges gives me and I’m even more excited for the things that are going to happen in college.
BTW: GCU HERE I COME!!!!!
