Congratulations. If you've hung with these workouts since July 24 you've completed 15 days of soul workouts. Developing a habit of reading God's word, interacting with it, praying about it and applying it to your life is one the most effective ways to see your faith in God grow. Here's one more to round out our after Bootcamp routine: GET AFTER IT!
Warm-Up: Take a few minutes today and bring what's on your heart to the Lord. Pray: "God help me to have an open heart and mind to be able to see where you are calling me and what you want me to do." Read Matthew 28:16-20.
Round 1: In verse 17 it says that some worshipped Him. Circle that phrase in your Bible. What are some things that would cause other people to say that you worship Jesus? What are some ways that others can be help you remember your identity in God when your life gets busy? Write these ideas down.
Round 2: Verse 17 also says that some doubted. Underline that phrase in your Bible. What are some doubts that you are facing right now? Write them down. Sit quietly for 5 minutes and ask God to give you a confidence in Him that drowns out the doubts you have—ask the Holy Spirit to strengthen your faith.
Round 3: For you personally, what are some ways that you can be consistent in your prayer life? How can you keep yourself accountable to always be growing? Write them down and ask a faithful friend if they would agree to be your accountability partner—helping each other stay consistent.
Burnout: Take a few minutes to set 2 goals for yourself about how you want to grow in your faith this upcoming school year. Write them down and tell a friend and one (or both) of your parents today so they can help you be accountable to these goals. It can sound like this: "Hey mom, so I've been doing these soul workouts for Bootcamp and today I set some goals to grow my faith this year. Can I tell you what they are?" Then tell them.
