Hey my gorgeous people,
I wanted to kick start this blog with a simple topic which is very dear to my heart “consistency”.
I used to be that person who would hear/read the word and be so empowered momentarily, why? Because I do not take any practical measures to help me stay consistent or retain what I learn. I know many of us struggle with this and I am so glad this blog gives me a chance to be real with you guys about my struggles and victories.
I developed a few steps to help me retain what I learn daily and I am going to share them with you
- Always prepare your heart to receive the word!
How do you do this? First thing is worship. Listen to music, sing-along and just worship the Lord. Ask him to saturate your heart and prepare your heart to receive the word because you want his word to fall on a heart that is fertile and you want his word to bear fruit in your life.
- Ask the Holy Spirit for understanding
You cannot read the word with your physical mind and understand, the Holy spirit gives deeper insight and revelations so let him be your best friend
- Have a book and pen
It is important to write things down that you can refer back to. Writing things down helps to easily retain information
- Create posters of scriptures and quotes
Put them in visible places, e.g., your wall, mirror. Ensure that these are the first things you read in the morning.
- Endeavour to refer back to your notes most days within the week, this will help you meditate and keep you motivated and empowered.
We really have so much on our minds daily and its hard to remember everything we read and hear, but these few steps helped me stay consistent and I hope they help you too.
GODS LOVE ALWAYS
