Don't just highlight the verses that make you feel good! Highlight with red the verses that hard and challenge you, or you even disagree with. This means your heart is not online with God's heart at those points and you should focus more on that so you can grow.

Do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewal of your mind, that by testing you may discern what is the will of God, what is good and acceptable and perfect.Romans 12:2

When worshipping alone, sometimes just sing how you feel.

It doesn’t have to rhyme either, just sing and tell God how you feel. When David worshiped in Psalms, little of his praises actually rhymed. I was worshipping like this after sinning the other day, saying how u need God and praising him, while rhyming when I could.

Research the Company and Use Their Products

Importance: [⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐] Just like they’ll do their due diligence on you, researching the company to know what they do and how they operate is a must. Also, double-check if the company’s a match for you. When you get to that interview, you’ll be asked about why you want to join and how you can contribute. Read up on the prospective employer on Glassdoor, for example. Researching the hiring manager who will conduct the interview is much harder. It happens that you only learn who the interviewer is when you walk into the meeting. However, if you can, look them up online. You’ll have a way to make some great, tailored comments and small talk to bond. Also, don’t go into an interview without trying out the products or services that the company offers. You need to prepare for an interview. If they have a blog, read it. If it’s a restaurant, eat there. If they manufacture dish soap, make some bubbly foam. Employers expect you to understand their business, and nothing makes them happier than hiring a fan!

Prepare Questions to Ask Them

Importance: [⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐] Interviews are not all about them getting to know you. In 2018, you have to speak up and come at them with your own questions. You’re bound to hear, “Do you have any questions you’d like to ask?” Don’t give no as an answer. What exactly should you ask your interviewer?
