As the school year comes to the end, many kids are excited to do what they want this summer. While I myself am looking forward to some downtime this Summer, I know how easy it can be to put spending time with God on the back burner. If you fall into the same pattern as me, hopefully, this article will help you. So here are some tips that you can use to stay plugged into God as you go about your summer.
First, spent time in prayer with Him. I've talked about this before, but prayer is a very important aspect of your faith. It is a way to stay in communication with God. Just like any relationship that you have, communication helps it grow. So I encourage you to find time each day this summer to talk to God. Even if you just take the time to take him for all that he's doing in your life, it does not have to be grand. Just spend some time with Him.
Second, dive into His Word. His Word allows us to understand His promises better and His truth. How are you supposed to equip yourself against the enemy if you don't know what God has promised you. Try learning one new verse a week.
Finally, get plugged into a small group or church. The Bible says where two or more are gathered in His name, there He is also. Community is another big part of your faith. It helps you know that you're not alone and gives you someone to help you grow in your faith.
So enjoy this summer. Have fun at the pool, with your family, and on vacation. But I encourage you to spend time with God as well. You won't regret it.
