Read Psalm 16:2 today. How often do you thank God for the good things in your life? Create a list of good things you’re thankful for, and spend some time today talking to God and thanking Him for those things.

Read Psalm 16:11 today. How can we actively allow God to show us the “way of life”? What barriers do you face that prevent you from following God and letting Him lead you?

Read Proverbs 4:23 today. What does guarding your heart look like? What are some things that try to attack your heart and damage it?

Read Psalm 19:1 today. Go out and watch the sunset. SIT & spend some time listening to Jesus.

Listen to “When the Fight Calls” by Hillsong. What fight do you need to pray in?
How can you watch God show up in it?

Read Philippians 4:6. What do you feel like you need to pray for? What is making you worry?
How can you rest in knowing God can take it from you?
