Do you ever ask God questions? I do. I asked Him a question regarding writing in my morning prayer and journal time. The specific question was about writer’s block. I share my journal entry:
When you spend time with Me in the mornings, my spirit breaks down the writer’s block, and the creativity will flow throughout the day.
I share this because I have changed certain habits in my life to help me fulfill my calling. One of these habits was to become a morning person. My prayer and journal time used to be in the evenings, late, where I was tired from the days’ activities.
I intentionally get up and spend time in prayer, instead of spending that extra hour in bed, journaling and reading the word.
Another life change I have made is to spend more time with friends. I have discovered a break to make that phone call, going out for coffee or lunch would give me rest, and help with my writing.
I have also changed my ministry appointments. My calendar was full all month to those needing prayer. I now have free days for myself, friends, family and for the Lord.
I have found for me to fulfill my calling, a change in my routine was in order.
As we change, grow and learn, our habits need to change. It took me a while to understand that I needed some re-arranging to do, but I eventually got it.
It goes with any gift the Lord gives us. We have to do our part to fulfill our calling, our dreams, our hopes, and desires.
It requires action.
When we take action and make necessary adjustments in our lives, we begin to see growth.
What habits have you changed to accommodate your growth in the Lord? Share them below in the comments, I would love to hear from you.
