Refocused Bible Study starts right here Dec 31st!
Before we get started, I have some tips to help us be consistent in any bible study and prayer in 2017!
“Commit your actions to the Lord and your plans will succeed.” Proverbs 16:3
COMMIT- to carry out an action deliberately.
Let’s be deliberate about growing with the Lord this year. Girls, there is no better commitment you can make!
Here’s a checklist I put together to help us all start out on the right foot in bible study & prayer for the New Year:
_Prepared: Our bible is handy & we have our study book ready to make beautiful with our colored pencils! For me, part of this step includes having my coffee pot ready to hit the button in the morning!!!
_Time set: Think about your schedule & decide when you will do your study. I love getting up before everyone in the house to spend time with Jesus. But before bed may work better for you.
But –#Refocus on God’s grace when these plans don’t make it to reality.
Stay deliberate by committing to engage in God’s Word before you look at social media for the day. Download the bible app on your phone. Don’t look anything else until you read some of His Word.
Look through the study & see what the few verses are for the day and click a pic of them to refer to throughout the day.
Consistent in prayer- Don’t call anyone on the phone until you’ve spoken to God yet. This is great for car time! Unless you have talkative babies in the backseat 🙂
These are just a few tips that have helped me stay focused on the Lord. Feel free to share any great ones you have. He is worth the focus!!!
Even if you don’t purchase the study, we’d love for you to join us as I blog through the material and we Refocus on God & me
The first four weeks of the brand new year!!!
My goal is always that you will be encouraged on this journey with Jesus! Join us New Year’s Eve as we fix our eyes on Jesus for the year ahead. ❤
You can purchase the study God wrote on my heart below, I pray it blesses you!

I love your encouragement to start with God first, on your phone and in conversation! I try to make it a point to look at the verse of the day on my Bible app before anything else and lately, instead of putting music on, I will pray during my morning workout. It really helps me to focus on what’s important for the rest of the day!
I need to commit this year to the Lord ahead of time!
Great challenge. I tend to read social media first thing in the morning. I also really like your idea about creating an image with a scripture per day. That’s a nifty idea to meditate or memorize scripture.
