My spiritual journey is continuous. Although I previously took a year and dedicated it to growing closer to God, even after the year was up I continue to do Bible study and go to church. I cannot tell you how to lead your spiritual journey. I prayed and it was put in my spirit to take a year. I didn’t want to do it. I was mad when I got the word, because it was inconvenient, and cumbersome. But God put it in my heart and I had to comply.
But the advice I can give is that you need to incorporate prayer and reading the word. Look online for possible bible study programs and you can even download the app YouVersion to get the bible and bible study programs on your phone. Only you know what else you need to work on in your life so only you can cater your spiritual growth. But bible study and daily prayer is always a start

what you do.
how you dress.
the way you love someone,
and how you talk.
your smile and your personality.
what you believe in, and all your dreams.
the way you drink your tea.
how you decorate your home .
your grocery list.
the food you make.
how your writing looks.
and the way you feel.
life is art.
unless what you do is imitate others ~

Learning How to Love
Dear friends, let us continue to love one another, for love comes from God. Anyone who loves is a child of god and knows God. But anyone who does not love does not know God, for God is love.
We are taught many things, but we are never really taught how to love. Although the word is familiar, simple and recognizable, it often times is misunderstood. Because the common definition of love is so abstract, love remains something that we are all looking for, but often cannot touch because the word is not tangible. The implications of this is that we find ourselves seeking for love without understanding what love is or how to love; we are left empty, broken and jaded.
Life is hard. Life is difficult. Life is painful. When we were young, it was easy to love because our hearts were pure. Though we couldn’t define it, it was easy to love unconditionally because we trusted those around us; we trusted our parents to provide for us, we trusted that the things we would need in life would be given to us, we trusted that we would be cared for. As we got older, life and people began to disappoint us; parents let us down, people abused and lied to us, things we needed never seemed to come when we needed them. We began to not trust those around us, and we began not to love.
So we were never taught about love, and yet we know that we want love and we want to love. So how do we learn to love?
The Bible tells us that God is love. Every moment we have on earth is a testimony to God’s love for you. We ought to use God as an example of how to love and use the Bible to know what love is. God as an example of love means that we love without bitterness and without expecting love in return. To extend your heart to people, even when you yourself are hurting, is a way of honoring God. You don’t have to like everyone or make everyone your best friend. Understand that loving everyone simply means treating everyone with respect and acknowledging their humanity.
In 1 Corinthians 13 tells us what love is and what love isn’t. It tells us that love is patient, kind, free of jealousy, envy and pride, is unselfish is not touchy, resentful, takes no account of the evil done to it, hates evil, is honest, protects, trusts hopes, perseveres and triumphs. The Bible is your how to on how to love others, even when you haven’t been given an example of what love looks like. It should be a goal to love people, without the negative baggage that you carried. To love others independent of our own pain is a sign of spiritual maturity and growth. We should aim to love easy and freely.
It is a daunting task: love like God and love in accordance to the way the Bible tells you to love. It’s an awesome task because we all know we are far from perfect. But purifying your heart and learning to love without remorse or regret or expectation is necessary for working on your spiritual health.
To love any and everyone is to honor God and set yourself apart as one of His children. You must pray and actively work to heal from your past so you can love in the future. By understanding what love is, we can know how to love others and set expectations for love for ourselves.
