Talking about change is easy, but taking control of your life and actually making monumental changes often seems too daunting to try. However, improving your life and yourself doesn’t have to involve earth-shattering transformations; by making simple, incremental changes, you can gradually create a better, more fulfilling life for yourself. These tips are extracted from Nancy Mann Jackson’s ‘Twenty-five habits that will change your life’
Spend time with God daily. Rise earlier each morning, go to bed a little later, or skip a mindless activity you need to let go of. Spend the extra time in Bible reading and prayer. Making quiet time a daily habit will bless your life. [1 Thessalonians 5:17]
Talk about your faith. Faith is a personal thing for most people, but that doesn’t mean it has to be private. If you’re not accustomed to sharing your faith with others or talking openly about Christ, make a commitment to start talking. Look for opportunities to mention your faith in everyday conversation by offering to pray for a friend who’s hurting or giving God credit for His work in your life. If your mentions of faith are genuine, you’ll not only become more assured of God’s role in your life, but you’ll make a positive impact on those around you naturally. [1 Peter 3:15]
Read a book every month (or two). The more you read, the more you learn. If you make reading a habit, not only will you expand your horizons, enjoy yourself, and learn new things, but you’ll also become a more interesting person. [Proverbs 12:1]
Even if you already practice some of these suggestions, keep in mind that those areas still have room for sprucing up. God bless you!
