Perhaps you can relate, but in this season of life, I’ve been settling into a new routine praying for the secret to being truly satisfied to be revealed.
In my time with Jesus, He has clearly laid three habits on my heart that, if followed daily, leads to truesatisfaction regardless of your current circumstances.
Habit 1. TALK TO JESUS
Daily. Every Day. No exceptions. No excuses. I’ll be honest, in years past, this has been a struggle to faithfully commit to digging into Scripture and talking to Jesus daily.
In my life, there had to be a serious change in rhythm, so I determined not to eat any physical food until I have first had my spiritual food.
I’ve not arrived in my walk with Jesus; but one thing is certain, I do not let a morning slip by without being in the Word and writing my prayers to Jesus.
I mean, let’s be real. He did so much for me on the cross that this “sacrifice” pales in comparison.
So the appointment stands. I allow quiet time to listen to what He has to say to me and He guides me in all areas of life.
He talks, I talk. It’s a beautiful time that I now crave as soon as I wake up.
Here’s the great part—you can too!
Habit 2. WORSHIP JESUS:
Here’s the thing, worship isn’t just a collection of catchy songs that we sing on Sunday mornings.
Worship is a lifestyle. A posture of bowing before the Almighty King Who is, also, your Heavenly Father!
Worshiping Jesus throughout your day is really quite simple.
It looks like this—being fully aligned with His heart allowing Him to be your thermostat for right and wrong and for determining good vs best.
Yes, I listen to worship music 90% of the time and you may too; but that’s not enough. Going to church isn’t even enough.
Worshipping Jesus by recognizing His power and love will wreck your life in the best way possible!
Habit 3. BE THE HANDS AND FEET OF JESUS:
If I have learned anything in my seven years of sickness and 1 year of divorce, my eyes have been opened to the power of praying for and attending to the needs of others.
When we shift the focus from ourselves and seek out others who need the love of Jesus or just the kindness of a stranger or friend, we are the extension of Jesus on earth.
How beautiful a picture. His hands that were nailed to the cross for you and me are physically reaching other people today.
Why? Simply because we choose to extend a small portion of the grace already given to us to others!
