How did you do?

Go back through your answers and circle your answers that need some work. As you look at them, how do you feel? Do you feel the changes that you need are manageable? Do you have hope of change or do you feel overwhelmed? Can you sense a plan coming to mind or do you feel stuck, with no chance of any significant change? If you are sensing that you need help then take this survey to your Pastor or a Spiritual mentor or good friend and ask them to help you brainstorm on some solutions. If you are not in a small group that meets regularly for Spiritual growth, find one. Get started in a Bible Study on Christian living. Finally, pray. Spend time with God and confess any attitude or sinful behavior that has kept you from your Spiritual walk with Him. Ask Him to revive your heart, to birth in you a new Spiritual awakening! Then commit your life to Him. Ask Him to be the ruler of your life. Give Him complete control. Tell Him your desire to live for Him and ask Him to fill you with His Spirit and to guide you. If you do this, share it with your Pastor or Christian leader so they can encourage you and help you follow through on next steps. May God guide you as you refresh your journey with Him. _____________________________________________________
