When the leaves transform into a tapestry of vibrant colors, a crisp breeze fills the air, and kids are back in school, we know one thing for sure…fall has arrived!
Feel the need for a fresh start right now? Embrace this season as a chance for a new beginning. Ecclesiastes 3:1 says, “For everything there is a season, a time for every activity under heaven.”
Here are five ways to make a fresh start this fall.
- Evaluate your goals.
Fall is here, so it’s time to take stock of goals. Don’t let them fade away—take a moment to evaluate whether a goal has been reached or if it has fallen by the wayside. The fall season is a great time to check in on your progress on the goals you set for yourself at the beginning of the year. Most people set goals but never think about them again until the following year, often to find that they haven’t accomplished their goals. See a coach in the New Life Coaching Network for help.
- Prioritize spending time with the Lord.
Make spending time with God daily, in His Word, and in prayer a priority. You may not want to set aside time to spend time with God, but it might never happen if you wait until you feel like spending time with God. C.S. Lewis said, “It’s easier to act your way into a feeling than it is to feel your way into an action.”
- Renew your relationships.
Along with fall comes spending time with family and friends. This is the perfect time to suggest to a spouse, close friend, child, or family member that you read the Bible together. Suggest a night to sit together to read and pray. This can be the perfect opportunity to experience an emotional and spiritual connection that may have been missing in the relationship.
- Make amends.
How about reaching out to that friend who doesn’t talk to you anymore because of a fight or an argument in the past? Or, what about making a fresh start with that adult son or daughter who has been hurt in the past and hasn’t seen you—or even talked to you—in a long time? Sending a text, making a phone call, writing a letter, or extending an invitation to go out to eat can improve the relationship.
- Attend a New Life intensive workshop.
Our intensive workshops combine truth-filled teaching with life-changing small breakout group sessions led by a licensed counselor.
