When storms hit, where do you go?
During life’s rougher waters, it’s often “easy” to turn to God. When we have no other options, it’s amazing how devoted we become to prayer and Bible Study.
But what do we do during life’s little storms? When our 4 year old throws a fit and our air conditioning goes out. When the kids argue and 5pm catches you with no dinner planned. When you forget to bring snacks for the soccer team and your baby wakes up during the night…again.
It’s easy to turn to TV, food or a minute of peace behind a locked bathroom door. But turning to Jesus in the daily messiness of life can be hard unless…
Unless it’s a habit.
And habits are formed simply and slowly. Here are 3 ways to build the habit of running to Jesus.
1. Post Bible verses – write your favorite verses on notecards and post them around your home to remind you that He is with you in the midst of tit all.
2. Say a prayer – each time a wave knocks you over today, say a prayer, “God, be my shelter. Refresh and refill me.”
3. Turn on worship music – when things start to get crazy around your home, put on some music that turns everyone’s hearts and minds to Jesus.
These are such simple things, but they are the foundation of us learning to run to God every times life gets stormy.
Sheila Walsh offers powerful, heart-filled teaching on ten bedrock promises of God, providing the foundation for daily living with confidence, hope, and joy. Sheila unveils principles that provide unshakable security during even the most difficult times by weaving her hallmark storytelling, personal experiences, and applicable Scripture to help readers gain a trust in God that will sustain them for a lifetime.
I’m including this video about the book, mostly because I thought it might encourage you, but I’m also including it because I just can’t pass up a good Scottish accent.
Seriously, I hope we have Scottish accents in heaven.
