If you struggle to stay consistent with daily prayer and Bible study this Christian agenda planner from DaySpring is just what you need!
At the end of each month, I usually sit down and make plans for the upcoming month.
I sit down and create a budget for the next month, go through all my business expenses and make sure I have all my appointments settled for the upcoming month.
I also sit down and plan out my spiritual goals. Having a plan in place helps me to continue to grow and learn about who God is. It’s what helps me stay calm in the face of hard times. It’s what keeps me sane.
My Christian Agenda Planner is My Secret Weapon
My planner has become my secret weapon for staying on track. I have all my important dates and plans written down. My reading plans already penciled in. I don’t have to wonder what I should read or study.
I can just grab my Bible, journal, and planner and spend time with God.
The key to successful and consistent growth is having a plan. And this principle applies to every area of your life. If you want to hit a goal, develop new habits or establish new routines you have to have a solid plan. And then stick to it!
So many of you share your struggles with staying focused and being consistent. I totally get it. There are so many times when I want to do all these things for God but no matter what I do I can’t seem to make it happen.
Well, I finally found a way to overcome all of that. A Christian agenda planner for my spiritual growth plans. My love for planners comes a close second to my love for journals. Both have been game changers for my faith and spiritual growth.
I’m pretty picky about what planner I use. I spend hours researching and checkings things out before I buy one. For years I have tried to use one planner for everything: work, homeschool, life and spiritual growth. I finally realized that wasn’t working for me.
I need something specifically for my spiritual growth plans so that I’m not distracted by all the things! That’s where the new agenda planners from DaySpring come in.
They were kind enough to send me a free planner to check out and use and I LOVE it! Here’s a sneak peak:
How to use your Christian Agenda Planner
I share a little about how setting BIG goals and breaking them down into more manageable tasks have really helped me be consistent with my quiet time and cross of my goals for the year.
Here’s a quick rundown of the process:
- Set a BIG goal for the year. If there was one thing that you could accomplish when it comes to your faith what would be it?
- Make a list of all the things that go with your goal. Books to read, Bible studies to work on, sermons to listen to, etc
- Each month take 1-3 things from #2 and make those the focus of your month
- Break those monthly goals down into weekly tasks
- Take those weekly tasks and assign them to specific days.
For example, One of my goals is to read the entire Bible during the year my planning process might look like this:
- Read the entire Bible in a year (all 66 books)
- I need to read 5.5 books each month to reach my goal
- Make a list of 5 books to read each month
- I need to read about 1.5 books each week
- Create a daily reading plan that covers 1.5 books each week
By breaking down our big goal we get rid of that feeling of overwhelm that can hinder our growth. When we take the time to break things down it becomes doable. One step at a time.
Having a planner is a great way to write your plans down. We are more likely to do something when we write it down. Plus we get the satisfaction of crossing things off the list when it’s complete …. and who doesn’t love that.
