Daily Devotionals are life-changing….
My roommate’s mom bought her this book called “Jesus Calling” by Sarah Young. She bought it from Barnes and Nobles for only $20 and it’s been the best addition to our household.
They encourage you to apply God’s word to your life daily.
It helps heighten your faith & reminds you God is always on time. It’s crazy because the “Word of the day” is always in line with what I’m going through right at that moment. It’s not just generic sayings like, “Treat people how you want to be treated” but they are eye-opening, instructional messages that actually give you “one-on-one” instructions to living a life closer to God.
During the summer, Tae (my roomie) and I heard a sermon saying, it’s vital to not only take care of yourself physically, by working out in the gym, but taking care of yourself spiritually is just as important.
So we started working out in our apartment gym three times a week and immediately after our workout we would read our daily devotional together, along with the bible verses that follow each message. Then we would discuss what stood out to us individually.
It was so empowering from beginning to end. Even though I was drained physically after the workout, I felt re-energized after reading the devotional.
It cleansed us in every aspect of our lives and left us wanting to cleanse any and everything that’s not positive or progressive… Leaving the rest of our day just filled with “good” vibes. I highly recommend purchasing your own daily devotional, it’s the best gift I’ve ever received.
