As the new year rolled around, I did as many of us do and reflected on my habits. While I’ve always been good at consistently spending time in the Word, I’ve always struggled with establishing new habits within that time. At different points I’ve journaled, worked on scripture memorization, or started prayer journals but none of these things had stuck. Going into 2021, I wanted to start new things and really build on the habit of reading I’ve already started. But as I looked back, I realized the same goals in the past had led to burnout and falling short.
