10 Ways to Reconnect with God in the Middle of the Year

It’s the middle of the year, and if you’re looking back at your resolutions and wondering where the past 6 months have gone, you’re not alone. According to statistics, 80% of New Year’s resolutions fail by February. If you’ve ever doubted change is an uphill battle, just take a good look at that stat.

When I think of the word resolution, I think of redefinition. We make New Year resolutions to resolve what needs redefined. Local news channels will show us segments of packed gyms and new diet programs, but what about those of us who want to focus on our spiritual diet? Many Christians make Bible reading a New Year’s resolution, and sadly, we reside within the 80% of those who fail. Here’s the good news: It’s never too late to restart. Here are 10 ways to restart the year and reconnect with God, even in June.

If we don’t, we’ll never remember where we have to be or what time to be there. Just about every successful business owner I know agrees on one thing: if you want to thrive, organize your time.

Scheduling time in the Word every day is not a bad thing if it ushers you into the presence of God. And, because the Word is living and powerful, (See Hebrews 4:12) before long you will begin to crave the power that comes from spending time there each day.
