With Christmas right around the corner, another holiday awaits, New Years! We all, to some extent make some kind of New Year’s resolution. Mine usually has to do with health and with spiritual growth!
I thought I am probably not the only one! So I wanted to make a gift guide for us who have a desire to grow spiritually! Also, so you can know that there are so many amazing resources out there to help us keep our eyes on Christ!
#1 Daily Grace- scripture Journal: This is on my wish list! These journals are great, they hold all your verses that you have been memorizing, and it keeps them all in one central location. I love how simple it becomes to go back to past verses you have memorized.
#2 Daily Grace- Bible Highlighters: If you, or someone you know is one who learn best by marking in your bible, these highlighters are a fun item to add into your quiet time! They’re simple yet encouraging and fun! They are the perfect gift for anyone that you know marks their bible!
#3 Daily Grace- Prayer Journal: I am a firm believer in writing down your prayers and allowing your prayer journal to hold all the specifics. Like dates you started praying, what you prayed, and when those prayers were answered! It’s vital for us to see our answered prayers and also to hold ourselves accountable to how often we pray, and how often we’ve prayed for actual things. I’ve definitely been guilty of thinking I’ve prayed continuously for a certain thing, then My journal has revealed just how little I’ve actually prayed for it.
#4 Lies Women Believe Book: Where do I even start with this book! Ladies, it is a must read for every Bible believing woman! It’s a must! This book has opened my eyes to how little I know scripture and it’s revealed so many lies that have been hidden in my heart, it’s absolutely life changing. This book is perfect for any women who is willing to recognize sin and lies, and who what’s a fruitful life! This book is so good!
#5 Idol’s of the Heart: This book is another on my wish list! I haven’t personally read it yet, but I desperately want to! It’s focused on helping us recognize deception in our own hearts that easily lead us away from God. It helps us recognize what that sin is that we so often do not recognize, which then leads to our confusion and disconnect from God. It’s another must read for any woman looking to grow more in love with Jesus!
#6 Give me Jesus Journal: I have been wanting this journal for some time now. It’s designed for intimate and intentional time with Jesus. It helps you focus on certain things, while also allowing you to have creativity in your quiet time. But again it allows all your quiet time information, reading, memorizing, and prayers to all lay in one central location. It’s the perfect gift!
#7 Praying the Attributes of God: In this book the author Rosemary Jensen offers 31 prayer devotionals designed to direct thoughtful meditation on the attributes of God. Encouraging us to take our eyes and prayer time off of ourselves and to make our prayer time all about God. This book is perfect for encouraging a more intimate prayer life with God.
#8 Growing Up: How often do you focus on mentoring or discipling others? Yet it is the very command Jesus left us with. This book is an easy read that walks us through what discipleship looks like and also reveals how vital and essential it is for God’s church. We are all called to leave His legacy and to reveal His goodness. Discipleship is how we do that!
