Renewing My Faith

by Carole Brown

Easter has come and gone once again. I ask myself the question: 

What did it accomplish for ME, in ME?

Here are some thoughts I have in renewing my own personal faith:

prayer free


  • Spend better time in prayer.  Life is busy. I always have too much to do, and many times I allow myself to get overwhelmed. I must remember that the most important is spending time with my God. If I permit other things and people to demand the time that belongs to the one who gives me hope and a reason for living, then I am denying myself the best!


heart free

  • Allow God to search my heart by studying his word. The more I know and learn of his words to us, the better I am prepared to deal with life in my world. 


Bible free

  • Study his word and spend time in prayer. I need to open my heart and ears to listen and hear his words particularly to me, and then to follow and obey. Only in that way will I show my devotion and love for him. 

follow2 free

  • Follow his guidance in dealing with others. I need to be more faithful in encouraging others, telling his word to those who question, and standing true in example and light to the world I live in. 

If I can be faithful in these few things, then I truly will be renewing and living out my faith.

How do you keep that spirit of renewal in your heart?
