Experts Reveal the Secrets for Taking Charge of Your Spiritual Life
Facing the daily struggles and trials we have in life can sometimes overwhelm us. Aside from the physical and emotional trauma we’ve endured, these hardships also drain our spiritual wellbeing. How can we keep our faith strong and undeterred to overcome these ebbs and flows of life? How do we maintain our strong spiritual connection with our Great Creator? Experts share these surprising ways you can take charge of your spiritual life even in the direst of circumstances.
Read the Bible Daily
According to spiritual experts, the Bible serves as God’s words. He speaks and communicates with us through his holy gospel. Reading the appropriate verses that correspond to your feelings will help you not only in calming yourself but also in having a deep understanding as to why you’re facing such challenges.
The Fortune 500‘s owner J.B. Hunt also shares how the Bible became the map of his life. At that time, he didn’t know whether establishing his transportation business would succeed, but he took a leap of faith and let the Bible and God’s words guide him through his journey. Not only did he become successful in his business, but reading the Gospel also lead him down the path of spiritual growth.
List The Things that Concerns You
Hunt says you can get back the order and peacefulness in your life by listing all the factors that burden you. Whether you’re worried about your career, finances, future, your relationship with your family and friends, list them on a paper and treat them like tasks you need to accomplish.
In this way, your life gets a little bit orderly until you figure out solutions to cross out each item off your list. While you’re at it, the spiritual experts also recommend you list all the opportunities you’re grateful for in life. It will help remind you to be thankful for all the blessings you’ve gained despite the hardships you’ve endured.
According to Hunt, reading the Bible and understanding it isn’t enough to have a healthy spiritual life. He says you also need to practice God’s teachings and apply it in your life. For example, he knows it’s difficult to forgive someone who wronged you. You can, of course, take as much time as you need to heal from the pain the other party has inflicted upon you.
But when you’re calm enough, you need to be ready to forgive them for their actions. In doing so, not only are you following God’s teachings, but you’ll also be letting go of any negative emotions that are burdening your conscience.
