Establish Your Rhythm

Do you ever feel like your spiritual life is out of sync? Like you’re missing a beat in your relationship with God? You’re not alone. The good news is that finding your rhythm again might be simpler than you think.

Look at an ant. Watch it closely; let it teach you a thing or two. Nobody has to tell it what to do.   All summer it stores up food; at harvest it stockpiles provisions.

– Proverbs 6:6-8 MSG

Mike Scheuchzer from Mercy Me shared in a conversation with Family Life Radio, “Routine is super helpful. If I get up at 6:30 in the morning and the house is just quiet for a little bit, I drink some coffee, read the Bible and just have that alone time [with God]. When I get out of a rhythm, it throws me way off.”

Establishing a routine can help you prepare for the spiritual winters of life.

So, what’s your routine? Maybe you’re a morning person like Mike, finding God in the quiet dawn. Or perhaps you connect best in the evening, reflecting on the day’s events. The key is consistency. Find a time that works for you and stick with it. Make it a non-negotiable part of your day. When you establish this rhythm, you’re not just setting a routine; you’re creating a sacred space for God to speak into your life.

Your spiritual life doesn’t have to be a series of highs and lows. By finding your rhythm and sticking to it, you’ll build a strong, consistent relationship with God. And that’s a beat worth keeping.

Today’s One Thing

Pray: “Heavenly Father, help me establish a consistent routine in my prayer life. Just as the ant prepares for the seasons, let my daily rhythm of spending time with You prepare me for whatever comes my way. Amen.”
