The new year is a special time for people around the world, a time of reflection, renewal, and rebirth. Bishop Tracie Williams Dickey, a respected Pittsburgh-based spiritual advisor, teacher, author, and church leader, asks people to take this opportunity to consider how they can live a more God-centered life. Here are her three tips for getting started in 2020.
3 Tips to Be a Better Christian in 2020
New Year’s is an ideal opportunity to take an honest look at your life to examine how far you’ve come, where you are, and where you want to go. Whatever 2019 provided for you, whether good, bad, or a mixed bag, consider everything that happened and all that you learned. Give yourself credit for the challenges you overcame and think of how you could handle certain situations differently in the future. Thank God for all He has given you and be grateful for all of the joyous moments you experienced.
- Set Goals
New Year’s resolutions are all the buzz this time of year. But Bishop Tracie Williams Dickey says, rather than picking vague goals, like “get healthier” or “pray more,” you’ll do best if you set time-oriented, attainable goals and find a way to hold yourself accountable. For instance, if your goal is to build a better relationship with God, consider joining a Bible study group and committing to going to meetings, as well as church services, once a week. You can also ask your family to join you in prayers in the morning and before bed. You might also commit to volunteering with a faith-based organization. Keeping a journal of your journey, or sharing your goals with friends and family can help you stay on track.
- Seek Guidance
Finally, Bishop Tracie Williams Dickey suggests seeking guidance. This may be from your church leader or other spiritual advisors in the community, your friends and family, or others you look up to. Of course, you can and should also seek guidance directly from God, Bishop Tracie Williams Dickey says. God didn’t intend for people to go through life alone, and He is always there to help you through any challenge or tribulation.
