3 Steps to Jump Start Your Spiritual Life

Have you been in a spiritual slump lately? Can you not seem to get out of the funk of the slump?

I have had several seasons of life where I simply didn’t feel close to God. Obviously, as the old saying goes, “I moved, not God.” I’ve learned a few things about the process of getting out of a spiritual slump.

Here are 3 easy ways to jump start your spiritual life:

Spend time in the right places – No matter how flashy we get, we will never escape the power of the Bible. Church serves a purpose in our spiritual growth. Prayer happens when we get alone with God. Some people encourage us in our walk with Christ and some don’t. Don’t expect to jump start your spiritual life until you are hanging out in the right places.

Discipline yourself – Supposedly if you do something continually for 21 days a habit forms that you can maintain. Years ago I was going through a difficult time, which led to a spiritual slump. Someone gave me some great advice. He said, “Read your Bible every day whether you feel like it or not.” I did. It worked. At first it was awkward, even mechanical seemingly, but over time, I fell in love again with God’s Word and my God..

Find accountability – Find one or two people you trust who will hold you accountable to this task. Give them freedom to ask if you have read your Bible, attended church, spent time alone with God, etc. Being accountable is always helpful, but especially during slump periods.

Did you want the process to be more difficult? It’s not…

Be honest: Are you in a spiritual slump these days?

  1. I have been there. Not wanting to give up my will for God's will was hard. I prayed that I would come to the place to surrender my future to God. About a year later, God dragged me kicking and screaming to that point. I hope you reconcile things easier than I did.

  2. Being completely honest here, I do feel like I am in slump lately. Mostly driven by anger because MY will doesn't line up with God's will. Stupid and selfish, but we all go through it. The discipline is the thing that is getting me lately. I seem to find excuses for "more practical" uses of my time. Like typing this comment.
