Based on the 8 Evening Habits of Highly successful people, this 1-minute devotion explains how each habit can be adapted to apply to Christian maturity. #Bible #BibleLoveNotes #Devotions #Success

Before bed, many highly successful people:(1)
1. Get tasks done.
2. Read.
3. Write down the day's biggest accomplishments.
4. Plan for the next day.
5. Turn off electronics.
6. Get enough sleep.
7. Meditate.
8. Spend time with family.(1) 

Many of these habits would be good for Christians, but with a Biblical foundation:
1. Make sure we've honored our responsibilities. See Everything We Do
2. Read the Bible. See Collect it Daily
3. Write down something we've learned about Jesus or record a victory we've had over sin.  See Journal is a Verb
4. Ask God's blessings for the following day. See Quiet TIME
5. Get offline and go "online" with God. See Talk or Power
6. Get enough sleep (this is good for so many things, spiritual and physical). See Eat, Rest, Cry
7. Meditate on a Bible verse as we fall asleep. See Singing in the Shadow
8. Pray for our family. See 5 Ideas for Effective Prayer

These are practical ways to obey the commands in Philippians 2:12-13 and Romans 12:1-2.

Why not look over these possibilities and ask God if you need to add any to your evening routine. They may bless your life with spiritual "success."

  5. Hi Gail,
    Just stayed reading your blog after getting your One Minute Bible Love Notes. I'm a new Christian and trying hard to grow in my faith. It does take work and need all the help I can get.
    God is Awesome,

  6. I wanted to sign up for the emails, but a box popped up and said this was not secure. Just thought you'd like to know. Love your devotionals and I will continue to read them from FaceBook

    1. Hi Joan,
      I'm not sure why that box popped up. There's nothing about the Bible Love Notes site that isn't secure....it's ad-free (we make no profit and cover all costs ourselves) and your email is never used for any purpose except emailing the devotion.

      I know that if you live in the EU, there is a standard pop-up for all sites that use cookies and since the blog is on Google, that box comes up, but it's not because the site itself uses cookies.

      I hope you'll try to subscribe again!
      God bless you.
