A few days ago I had a conversation with an acquaintance and as we were having a heart to heart she said she felt it was time for her to change the course of her life. I asked for further clarification in order to understand what she was talking about a little better. She started opening up and telling me how unhappy she was with the direction of her spiritual life, finances, life in general, and career and how she was thinking of making some changes in the new year. I love to listen to people so i simply listened until i felt it was necessary for me to give my thought to the matter at hand. After that conversation this acquaintance walked away uplifted and edified and i felt I could share some of the things we discussed in hopes of helping someone this year who may read this post.
KEY STEPS ON HOW TO TRANSFORM YOUR LIFE!
- PRAYER AND MEDITATION
You should NEVER enter your day without prayer as this is very important. learn to Commit your ways unto the Lord daily.
Job 38:12 “Have you commanded the morning since your days began, And caused the dawn to know its place, 13 That it might take hold of the ends of the earth, And the wicked be shaken out of it?”
Meditate on His word daily. “This Book of the Law shall not depart from your mouth, but you shall meditate on it day and night, so that you may be careful to do according to all that is written in it. For then you will make your way prosperous, and then you will have good success.” Joshua 1:8
Many people do not realise the value of time. First thing is that, time lost can not be gathered back. Time is a precious commodity and as a fact it is the most expensive commodity ever. Are you being mindful of what you give your energies to?
- CHANGE IS NOW
Why do people always wait to make changes tomorrow? Have you ever wondered what if tomorrow never comes for you! Live today and start making changes in the now. If you are not happy about your spiritual life today why not pick up the bible today rather than wait to start a new year’s resolution. Remember no person on earth has the power to force you to change, only you can change if you are willing to. Always take steps to change the things you are not happy about, don’t wait for tomorrow.
Remember that everyday you have been given on this earth is a gift. Set priorities because at the end of the day you choose to use your day as you please and will. So it is up to you to choose either to waste it or to utilise properly and for good, because what you choose to do today is Important. Your choices and priorities today either add to your investments for your advancement or take away from it.
This one for me has always been very straightforward. I have the want or need strategy that i apply to everything before I spend unnecessarily. Always ask you self do i want or do i need this; believe me there is a difference and you will notice a change in your spending habits.
Even God rested after he had done all the wonderful works of creation. There is a huge difference between rest and laziness. It is vital that you get sufficient rest daily because life and all that comes with it can take its toll on you so try your best to take care of your well-being.
