You’ve probably heard your family and friends talk about their resolutions for the New Year. Things like saving more money, losing weight, getting organized and taking time off from work to travel the world. While it’s always great to have personal and professional goals for yourself, you shouldn’t overlook opportunities for spiritual growth too.
Whether you’ve recently accepted Christ as your savior or grew up in the church since you were young, there are always new, humbling lessons to learn during your journey of faith and addiction recovery.
With the New Year almost here, take a few quiet moments for yourself today to consider making some faith-based resolutions. Things that can help you become closer with Christ and grow stronger in your faith.
Here are a few ideas to help you get started!
You’ve probably read specific passages from time to time, but do you carve out time in your schedule to understand the scripture? If you would like to make this part of your spiritual journey in 2017, consider putting together a Bible study group with your friends and family. You can plan to read specific chapters separately, and then come together to talk about what you learned and the words that inspired you.
Prayer often comes to us spontaneously throughout the day – usually when we are doing through a difficult time or searching for answers. But, it’s also important to make prayer your priority, regardless of what is going on in your life.
If you have worked hard to overcome an addiction to drugs or alcohol, you can serve as an inspiration to others who are still trying to find their way. By living a sober, Christian lifestyle you can motivate your friends and family to do the same!
If you do want to make your faith a priority in the New Year, don’t hesitate to reach out to your pastor and the rest of your church family for their guidance and help. Chances are, they’ll be honored to be part of your faith-based journey!

Though, it doesn’t always have to be that hard. As a child of Christ, you were placed on this earth to live a simple life. You were created to lead a mission-driven life, to serve and minister to others and celebrate the gifts that He has bestowed upon you and your family.
If you are dealing with addiction issues, it doesn’t have to derail your faith. By making prayers of gratitude a constant priority in your daily routine, you can continue to grow on your spiritual journey while, at the same time, making strides in substance abuse recovery.

Dealing with addiction recovery is hard. It can wear you down mentally, spiritually and physically. But, you should remember that you always have someone on your side. God. He’s there. He’s listening. He’s a silent champion for your success. Remember that.
While life may look like a trail carved from a steep, uneven path at times, it’s important to know that your trek along each and every one of those cracks, walls and uphill climbs isn’t one surpassed alone. Even if your footprints are the only ones left on the trail behind you, it’s important to know that you have His strength by your side.
That’s why many of those on the path to recovery have realized that running is more than just exercise. It’s an opportunity to clear your mind, focus on nothing but the open road, and just, breathe. And, for many, the act of running is transformed into something more - a spiritual workout. It’s a chance to say a prayer with your running partner each day.
Is Christ your running partner? Here are ten prayers to strengthen your spiritual workouts.
