3 Questions to Ask God Every Day

Our relationship with God should be like our everyday relationships with our friends and family here on earth. We should treat him like the loving father he is, there to listen and there to attend to whatever needs we may have.

1 John 5:14 says, “And this is the confidence that we have toward him, that if we ask anything according to his will he hears us.”

God hears us whether we hear his answer or not. I encourage you to start your day by asking him these three simple questions!

  1. How can I follow your will today?

What’s on your agenda for the day may not be the same as God’s agenda. Instead of starting your day by praying for this or that, simply surrender your day to God and let Him control your plans.

Proverbs 3:5-6 says, “Trust in the LORD with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways submit to him, and he will make your paths straight.” 

When our day begins by submitting ourselves to the Lord, God will reveal his perfect plans to us throughout each day. Trust him, and amazing things will come your way.  

  1. How can I be a witness to others today?

Witnessing to others is one of the most important things to do as a Christian. If we don’t show anyone the love of Christ by the way we talk, act, and think, how will they get to see and hear about how God can impact their life?

1 Peter 3:15 says, “Instead, you must worship Christ as Lord of your life. And if someone asks about your Christian hope, always be ready to explain it.”

Not only do we have to witness to others, but we have to be ready to explain why we are the way we are and why we do the things we do. If we can’t back up our actions, what’s the point at the end of the day?

It could be as simple as lending a hand to someone that needs one or showing kindness to someone who doesn’t necessarily deserve it. Be the light that Jesus was and is for so many people. Be a walking example of what it looks like to live for Christ.

  1. How can I be the person you want me to be today?

Like I’ve mentioned time and time again, God has a plan for each and every day of your life. Ask him how you can be who he so perfectly created you to be!

Ephesians 2:10 says, “For we are God’s masterpiece. He has created us anew in Christ Jesus, so we can do the good things he planned for us long ago.”

 I love how he words that: “the good things he planned for us long ago.” That gives us the reassurance we need to know that we really can be the person God has always created us to be.

Tomorrow morning and the mornings after, ask yourself these three questions. Watch both your day and your relationship with God get better and better as you do so!

5 Easy Lifestyle Boosts to Try for Yourself

If you want a feel-good boost for your body, you can always do the basic “work out more” or “eat healthier” thing, but how many times do we actually carry through with it?  And how long do we actually keep it going when we do?  Here are a few lifestyle boosts that are easy to keep up with and will benefit both your body and mood!

  • Drink more water. Chelsea Crockett - Water I’ve always heard this and thought “yeah, yeah, yeah, whatever,” but it really pays off and makes your body feel all-around better!  Carry around a reusable water bottle with you wherever you go and you won’t even realize how much water you’re drinking throughout the day.
  • Make daily to-do lists.  Checking off tasks on a to-do list is scientifically proven to boost your mood.  It gives you a feeling of accomplishment and success even if it’s completing something super small!
  • Stick to a bedtime and wakeup time.  Once again, science proves that this will benefit both your mind and body greatly.  You’ll feel less tired and more motivated to take on the day!
  • Start your day with a cup of coffee and some time with God.  I know for me, starting the day out by talking to God refreshes me more than anything (and some caffeine doesn’t hurt either!).
  • Don’t use your phone an hour before bed.  Your phone screen gives off blue light that actually keeps your brain awake and alert.  So when you lay down and play on your phone to “make yourself tired,” it’s actually doing the opposite!

I hope you consider giving these a try!  With a little determination, you can make all of these lifestyle boosts an everyday habit!

Quiet time: a peaceful time to spend with God and meditate on His Word.  Have you ever set aside a half hour or so to spend solely with God?  I understand that you may be busy or simply don’t feel motivated to get up and do it, and that’s okay!  There are different ways to get you excited, stay encouraged and motivated, and find joy in quiet times!

  1. Make sure you have all you need before you sit down to do a quiet time!  Chelsea Crockett - Quiet TimesBe sure to have a Bible, journal, pen, and devotional or lesson to walk through.
  2. Set aside a specific time each day to devote solely to your quiet time.  I usually try to get in at least 30 minutes, but you can start small with 10 or 15, or even 5 minutes before you head to school or work!
  3. Find a spot to do your quiet time.  If you like the outdoors, find a place outside such as under your favorite tree or by a lake!  You can even try out places like Starbucks or other coffee shops that have a relaxing atmosphere.
  4. Pick a certain devotional.  This allows you to have a specific game plan when you sit down.  Print out questions from online that go with specific verses or even get a guided devotional app on your phone!
  5. Find an accountability partner.  If your friend is wanting to start doing quiet times, keep each other accountable.  Text each other at the end of the day to make sure you both did one for the day!

I encourage you to try and set aside time once a day or even once a week.  You’ll notice a huge difference in your life and yourself!

Love, Chelsea

There are certain things that should be on your summer bucket list such as going to the drive-in with your friends or spending the day at an amusement park! Since most of your days will be spent at home watching Netflix or hanging out with friends, there are certain things you should do every day that will make your summer stress-free and enjoyable!Chelsea Crockett - Breakfast

  • I don’t know about you, but I’m not the best at keeping my room clean! I’ve learned it’s much easier to do a 10 minute clean up each day rather than let clothes pile up over days at a time. During the summer, this will be much easier to maintain!
  • I’ve always been told “breakfast is the most important meal of the day.” I never realized how true this was until I made it a point to have breakfast every morning! Having something as simple as a smoothie will not only energize you but make you more motivated to start your day!
  • Wash your face, drink a cup of green tea, and take a refreshing shower. Make this a routine! Your body will thank you.
  • Take time to spend with God. Read a devotion if you have one, and if not, read a certain section of the Bible every day.

All of these things will be easier to accomplish without homework and school in the way… and I encourage you to do so!

Love, Chels
