Earlier this month, I shared about my emergence from a funk. I had realized that if I was going to truly live beyond “going through the motions” and stuffing my emotions, I needed to live more intentionally … and surround myself with encouraging reminders of God’s faithfulness.
I needed to fit more truth into my life … a life that seemed so crammed with commotion and change. And by being more intentional, as sweet Gianna reminded me, I would once again be “doing life” with God.
I started by adding some physical reminders in my new office space at work.
I hung up this lovely canvas.
I also added some decor and a coffee mug that points me toward the source of joy.
One of my favorite reminders is my (in)courage perpetual calendar that is filled with beautiful messages from my grace-soaked sisters. The first thing I do when I arrive at my desk is flip the page of my calendar and read the message of the day.
All of these little items serve as cheerleaders. They help brighten my days and whisper for me to turn my attention to scripture. I have found that little reminders like these help increase my craving for more of God’s Word.
While everything I pointed to as an example is lovely, please know that you can add reminders to your life without actual products … a Bible verse on a sticky note can be powerful as well. The key is to be intentional about filling your life with true encouragement.
What are some things you do to help you live intentionally?
