Eli had his yearly checkup today. He’s gained weight, grown taller (but don’t worry he’s still a shortie) and had a flu shot without crying for the first time (well he cried a little- but I didn’t have to pin him down!)
While the nurse weighed and measured my baby, I began thinking about how much I have grown over this past year. Not in height (ahhh ok maybe a little in weight) but how I have grown more spiritually over the last several months.
It has been an unbelievable year for me and my walk with Christ. I have seen my life and my family’s lives transformed as we have decided to put Jesus at the forefront of all that we do. Yet, I still feel like I have so much more to accomplish. Many times I feel torn between this world and His world. Caught up in trivial things, when I should be caught up in Him.
I know I will never stop growing when it comes to knowing Jesus. Even the most seasoned of Christians still has room to grow. But just like a yearly health check up, it’s probably a good idea for me to do my own yearly check up.
Or maybe a monthly, weekly or daily one.
Except this one will be a spiritual one.
Questions for my Spiritual Check Up:
Am I spending time with Jesus everyday? Am I spending time in the Word daily? Am I serving Him daily? Am I surrounding myself with encouraging people who also bring me closer to Him? Am I helping bring people closer to Him?
I know I am not going to always get it right.
I’ll screw it up daily.
But I can at least try and get it a little more right.
I want to take one step farther away from this world and one step closer to Him, each and every day.
Ephesians 4:15 but speaking the truth in love, we are to grow up in all aspects into Him who is the head, even Christ,
