The more like Jesus we become, the more healed, whole and free we will be. The more like Jesus we become, the more His mission will become our passion.

One of the key ways we do this at Zeo Church is to embrace a everyday spiritual practice that becoe Habits.

Remember, we’re all work-in-progress – we’re in a relationship with God, not under religion. So, let’s ‘have a go’ together and see what Jesus will do.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row row_height_percent=”0″ override_padding=”yes” h_padding=”2″ top_padding=”5″ bottom_padding=”5″ back_image=”77340″ back_position=”center center” overlay_color=”color-wayh” overlay_alpha=”35″ gutter_size=”3″ column_width_percent=”100″ shift_y=”0″ z_index=”0″][vc_column column_width_percent=”100″ gutter_size=”3″ style=”dark” overlay_alpha=”50″ shift_x=”0″ shift_y=”0″ shift_y_down=”0″ z_index=”0″ medium_width=”0″ mobile_width=”0″ css_animation=”left-t-right” width=”1/2″][vc_custom_heading text_size=”fontsize-155944″ text_transform=”uppercase”]Habit[/vc_custom_heading][/vc_column][vc_column column_width_percent=”100″ gutter_size=”3″ style=”dark” overlay_alpha=”50″ shift_x=”0″ shift_y=”0″ shift_y_down=”0″ z_index=”0″ medium_width=”0″ mobile_width=”0″ css_animation=”right-t-left” animation_delay=”200″ width=”1/2″][vc_column_text]When we were growing up, we were ‘trained’ by our parents to get into the habit of washing our face and brushing our teeth every day. It didn’t come naturally at first, but now we wouldn’t think of starting our day without doing those things.

We want to build that same good habit when it comes to drawing close to Jesus each day, and throughout the day.

With this in mind, we’re training ourselves to build a healthy habit every day – a spiritual practice of drawing close to God.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row row_height_percent=”0″ override_padding=”yes” h_padding=”2″ top_padding=”3″ bottom_padding=”2″ overlay_alpha=”50″ gutter_size=”3″ column_width_percent=”100″ shift_y=”0″ z_index=”0″][vc_column column_width_percent=”100″ gutter_size=”3″ overlay_alpha=”50″ shift_x=”0″ shift_y=”0″ shift_y_down=”0″ z_index=”0″ medium_width=”0″ mobile_width=”0″ css_animation=”left-t-right” width=”1/2″][vc_custom_heading heading_semantic=”p”]First up…[/vc_custom_heading][/vc_column][vc_column column_width_percent=”100″ gutter_size=”3″ overlay_alpha=”50″ shift_x=”0″ shift_y=”0″ shift_y_down=”0″ z_index=”0″ medium_width=”0″ mobile_width=”0″ css_animation=”alpha-anim” animation_delay=”400″ width=”1/2″][vc_custom_heading heading_semantic=”h3″ text_size=”h4″]Start the day with God[/vc_custom_heading][vc_column_text]Start with 2 minutes Bible reading, 2 minutes reflection, 2 minutes prayer – and look to grow from there.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row row_height_percent=”0″ overlay_alpha=”50″ gutter_size=”3″ column_width_percent=”100″ shift_y=”0″ z_index=”0″][vc_column column_width_percent=”100″ gutter_size=”3″ overlay_alpha=”50″ shift_x=”0″ shift_y=”0″ shift_y_down=”0″ z_index=”0″ medium_width=”0″ mobile_width=”0″ css_animation=”left-t-right” animation_delay=”600″ width=”1/2″][vc_custom_heading heading_semantic=”p” text_transform=”uppercase”]Then…[/vc_custom_heading][/vc_column][vc_column column_width_percent=”100″ gutter_size=”3″ overlay_alpha=”50″ shift_x=”0″ shift_y=”0″ shift_y_down=”0″ z_index=”0″ medium_width=”0″ mobile_width=”0″ css_animation=”alpha-anim” animation_delay=”800″ width=”1/2″][vc_custom_heading heading_semantic=”h3″ text_size=”h4″]Turn your thoughts to God[/vc_custom_heading][vc_column_text]Throughout the day, allow your thoughts (encouragements and worries) to become moments to pray.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row row_height_percent=”0″ override_padding=”yes” h_padding=”2″ top_padding=”2″ bottom_padding=”3″ overlay_alpha=”50″ gutter_size=”3″ column_width_percent=”100″ shift_y=”0″ z_index=”0″][vc_column column_width_percent=”100″ gutter_size=”3″ overlay_alpha=”50″ shift_x=”0″ shift_y=”0″ shift_y_down=”0″ z_index=”0″ medium_width=”0″ mobile_width=”0″ css_animation=”left-t-right” animation_delay=”1000″ width=”1/2″][vc_custom_heading heading_semantic=”p” text_transform=”uppercase”]Finally…[/vc_custom_heading][/vc_column][vc_column column_width_percent=”100″ gutter_size=”3″ overlay_alpha=”50″ shift_x=”0″ shift_y=”0″ shift_y_down=”0″ z_index=”0″ medium_width=”0″ mobile_width=”0″ css_animation=”alpha-anim” animation_delay=”1200″ width=”1/2″][vc_custom_heading heading_semantic=”h3″ text_size=”h4″]Close the day with God[/vc_custom_heading][vc_column_text]Before your head hits the pillow, take a moment to be thankful, release and forgive anyone who has hurt you that day, and give your worries to God (who will keep working on your behalf as you sleep).[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row row_height_percent=”0″ override_padding=”yes” h_padding=”2″ top_padding=”5″ bottom_padding=”5″ back_color=”color-208893″ overlay_alpha=”50″ gutter_size=”3″ column_width_percent=”100″ shift_y=”0″ z_index=”0″][vc_column column_width_percent=”100″ gutter_size=”3″ overlay_alpha=”50″ shift_x=”0″ shift_y=”0″ shift_y_down=”0″ z_index=”0″ medium_width=”0″ mobile_width=”0″ css_animation=”left-t-right” width=”1/2″][vc_custom_heading]More Resources…[/vc_custom_heading][/vc_column][vc_column column_width_percent=”100″ gutter_size=”3″ overlay_alpha=”50″ shift_x=”0″ shift_y=”0″ shift_y_down=”0″ z_index=”0″ medium_width=”0″ mobile_width=”0″ width=”1/2″][vc_custom_heading heading_semantic=”h3″ text_size=”h4″]Zeo Journal[/vc_custom_heading][vc_single_image media=”82682″ media_width_percent=”100″ media_ratio=”sixteen-nine” alignment=”center”][vc_column_text]The Zeo Journal is a space for you to capture what God is saying to you and how you are responding.
