Your spiritual health is just as important as any other part of your wellness. Up until now, taking part in church services and ministering to others have been key parts for maintaining an active Christian life. Fortunately, just because you have to keep your distance, it doesn’t mean you have to be distant. Here are two ways you can maintain a healthy spiritual life during these trying times.
Get a Spiritual Health Workout
Now is a great time to deepen your relationship with God and learn more about Him. This can include studying the Bible more closely or even digging further into the history behind a few key verses. As you get to know more about His word, you’ll also learn more about how to use it to get through the challenges that are facing you right now.
If you’re not sure where to start, search for themed Bible Study guides online geared towards maintaining spiritual health. You’re not going to be learning in a vacuum though. Whether you want to have scheduled fasting or prayer sessions, it’s important to keep talking to Him. Let Him know about any challenges you’ve been having.
One thing’s for sure, there’s nothing like quiet when it comes to listening out for God’s instructions. Finally, consider keeping a spiritual health journal. You can write down your specific concerns and after a day of study, you’ll be able to add Bible verses that fight them. They’ll be wonderful for helping you out in the future.
Try Virtual Interactions
Since the start of the COVID-19 pandemic, many churches have gone online. If you’re like some people, it might be hard to really get into church services without having people around. Well, don’t give up on it yet. While keeping up with your online church services, consider setting up some virtual events of your own. Take your spiritual health into your own hands.
You could schedule regular Skype calls with friends just for a spiritual health check-in or have a Bible Study. If you’re up to it, how about having short sharing sessions on Zoom? You could even use some of the spiritual workout tips from the first point. Having friends involved might make it easier for you to maintain your study schedule.
Workouts are usually more fun when you have the support of those with similar goals. Of course, if those tools aren’t for you, a phone will do. Regular phone calls or even WhatsApp messages can work just as well when it comes to maintaining your spiritual health.
