The ‘Like Jesus’ challenge: Week 5 (Spending time with God)

By September 4, 2017 Like Jesus Challenge
Week 5:spending time with god

Hey guys!

I hope you enjoyed your weekend. How did you do on last weeks challenge? If you haven’t done last weeks challenge, click here. If you would like to start the challenge from the beginning, click here.

This week, we are going to be focusing a little bit more on the time you spend with God. So, if you are listening to the instructions, I continually tell you that you need to be spending time with Jesus in order to actually have a relationship with Jesus. Praying and studying the Bible are important in your walk with God. You can’t have a relationship with someone you don’t talk to. You can’t worship someone you know nothing about. That is why it is so crutial that you read your bible and pray as much as you possibly can on a daily basis.

Whenever I went a few weeks without reading the Bible, I was a brat. I had an attitude and really, I was just overall mean. Some of my friends can testify to that. Reading the Bible and spending time with God helps you grow your fruit of the spirit. If you apply the things to your life, you will continue to get more joy, kindness, etc.
week 5 of the like Jesus challenge will be about spending time with God. You read for it?

Week 5: Each day this week, after spending time with God, send your notes to 3 friends and remind them to spend time with Jesus as well.

If you do not take notes, I highly encourage you to. If I didn’t have my notes, I wouldn’t remember anything. When I take notes, I can actually go back and reread them if I needed to. For me, I have to take notes. My accountability partner and I send each other our notes every day so we can make sure we’re spending time with God and even learn about what they are reading or see a certain passage from a different perspective.

If you don’t have an accountability partner, you should really pray about getting one. They can help you to stay encouraged, remind you to spend time with God, and be a helping hand to you in your walk. You aren’t supposed to do this alone. Don’t. So when spending time with God each day this week, make sure you send an accountability partner your notes and remind them.

Remember, stay smiling! Memorize more bible verses! Keep doing all of the past challenges and let God change your heart. I hope you all have a blessed week

You Can’t Read Your Bible Enough

Reading the bible is one of the most important things you can do as a Christian, as long as you’re doing your best to live it out. It’s something that brings you closer to God while it changes your heart and attitude. The more you read it, the more you learn. Trust me, you can’t read your bible enough. You use what you study through out the day and watch how God uses your new biblical knowledge to enrich your daily life. You are suppose to take up our cross daily and spend time with Him as much as we can.

Using God Merely as a 911 call

By January 17, 2017 Devotionals

About two years ago, I remember getting a phone call informing me that my grandpa was in the hospital. We drove thousands of miles to make sure we got there before things exaberated. When things were going in the opposite direction of what we were anticipating, different family members began asking me to pray with them.

The Envelope system:

the envelope system

 

This is one of my favorite systems to use when involving money. If you aren’t good at saving money or if you are one of those people that blows their pay check within a few days of getting paid and then struggling to make it to your next pay check, this is definitely something for you.
I’ve always been really good at saving money but I wanted to see how well this worked. Even if you’re good at saving, it keeps it organized. So even after I proved my theory, I am still to this day using it.

6 Things To Do At Your First Practice

By September 23, 2016 Youth Worship
first practice

You’ve gotten kids that are interested… now what?

  • Plan a practice

    (Preferably two per week ) that coordinates to your time as well as theirs. We do ours on Sundays at 1:30 p.m. and Wednesdays at 4 p.m. Once you are with them, have them take a seat.

  •  Tell them a little about yourself and maybe even your testimony

    Let them know that you take this very seriously and it’s not something to be in if you aren’t serious in leading people in worship. If they don’t know what worship is, give them your definition with some scripture to back you up. Tell them what they will be doing and what to be expecting. Basically just an introduction to worship.

  • Figure out what instrument everyone is playing

    Then, set up so you can have the first practice.
