I have set some spiritual goals for 2021. After some reflection, I decided that I need to be more intentional about prayer and Bible study. Not that I don’t pray or study the Bible. I do, but I want that intentional devotional time with the Lord. I will continue with my current pray as I go about my day routine, because there isn’t anything wrong with continual conversation. God tells us to be in continual prayer. As far as Bible study, I look up scriptures for my blog posts and I take notes on church sermons, but I am not intentional about Bible study. I have a close relationship with God, but it is a journey. It is about continual sanctification. It is about taking it to the next level and doing whatever it takes to deepen our relationship with God. I expect that there will be ups and downs, but the main thing is not to quit. Nothing is ever accomplished if we quit.

My 2021 Goals:


I will:

Read a morning Psalm to get me going for the day.

Pray using the Lord’s prayer as an outline. I probably will use a bullet method for my daily prayers instead of writing them out. I have a tendency to get redundant and I want to make sure I am praying from my heart.

Journal my Bible studies following the studies in Farm Girl Bible Journaling Group on Facebook. The group is run by Farm Girl Journals and I love it!


Read an evening Psalm to end my day well.

Praise God for those things that I am grateful for.

Daily Practices:

Practice contentment

Surrender worry, anxiety and fear

Choose faith over fear

Send up bullet prayers as led by the Holy Spirit throughout the day.

Once a week:

Attend church

Serve others

Give of myself (time and/or resources)

On a regular basis:

I think I will turn off the T.V. other than watching Youtube videos on George Muller and other faith based videos.

Study the life of George Muller and take notes on his life of faith.

I don’t want any of it to become legalistic. I want it to be something that I always long for and right now I am longing for a deeper relationship with God. I will be updating as the year progresses!
