Repentance to Jesus paves the path for rebuilding trust

My goal has been to post something every weekday.   The objective – to form consistent daily Christian study, prayer and action habits.   I missed yesterday and on one hand I am disappointed but I did complete a repentance plan to Jesus that can also pave the path to a closer walk with Jesus and more trust in my marriage, relationships and more.

I put this plan together after the confession of my sin to Jesus.  I know there needs to obvious, ongoing and accountable changes in my life.

Here are the six areas I focused on and the verses I used as I prayerfully put this together.  In my repentance plan I listed several items that I need to accomplish on a daily, weekly, monthly, yearly basis as well as what I should not do (sin).

My prayer is I’m thoughtful and true, honest and true to this plan!

Christian Study, Prayer, Reflection, Action

Galatians 2:20 (NIV) 20 I have been crucified with Christ and I no longer live, but Christ lives in me. The life I now live in the body, I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave himself for me

Husband love your wife

Ephesians 5:25 (NIV) 25 Husbands, love your wives, just as Christ loved the church and gave himself up for her

Investing time in our children

Proverbs 22:6 (NIV) 6 Start children off on the way they should go, and even when they are old they will not turn from it.

Confess your sins to each other

James 5:16 (NIV) Therefore confess your sins to each other and pray for each other so that you may be healed. The prayer of a righteous person is powerful and effective.

Managing Finances

Luke 19:23 (NIV) Why then didn’t you put my money on deposit, so that when I came back, I could have collected it with interest?’

Managing Work, Health and Giving

Ephesians 4:28 (NIV) Anyone who has been stealing must steal no longer, but must work, doing something useful with their own hands, that they may have something to share with those in need.

About GettingCloserToOurGod

This blog is written by Todd Christenson. He was raised in Nebraska and currently lives on Long Island in New York. Though out my childhood, my family attended church. We prayed together at meals. I thought I was prepared for life. After college, I moved to New York City. Shy, unsure of myself, building an identity in worldly things, increasingly prideful, self-righteousness, a controlling nature. In 2013, God spoke through someone, suggesting I confess my sins. I did. I realized that every day, I’d been glorifying myself, not God. Today, God’s teaching me to have my identity in Him, only, my dependency in Him, not myself, being who He wants me to be, not the world, loving Him first, loving others as myself.
