We are told in Deuteronomy six and again in the Gospels to Love the LORD your God with all your Heart, Soul, Mind and Strength. What does that really look like in our everyday? We are all created differently and have unique qualities. Each of us leads our life in a different uniquely you way.
Some lead with their Heart, their feelings. Others lead with their Soul, their intuition. Yet others lead with their Mind, their intellect. And, still, others lead with their Strength, their experiences. So, if we are to love God with all of these parts, we need to first start in the area we ‘lead’ as uniquely you and then learn to strengthen the other parts of ourselves.
Where to start being uniquely you
Have you been frustrated before in your Faith-life? Have you felt disconnected to God and didn’t really know how to connect to Him? This is caused by ‘leading’ in one area of your life, say Heart, but worshiping, doing Bible study, and praying in another area, say Mind. This makes it difficult for you to connect your heart to God’s heart because you are going about it in a way that is different from how He has designed you.
Are you at a point on your spiritual journey that you want to develop a stronger relationship with Jesus, yet you are not quite sure what to do to get to that next level? You are doing all the right things: Prayer, Bible Study, Worship, and such yet you feel stuck and want to go deeper.
The reality is that there is no fast answer or magic pill to get unstuck and tap into the Super-abundance of God. Relationships take commitment, energy, and time to develop; and your relationship with God is no different.
What if you could cultivate your relationship with Christ in a manner developed specifically for you and how you best operate? You may know that the way to grow and deepen your connection to God is to spend time with Him. But if the generic way you were taught as a child or through your faith community just doesn’t work for you there is a way to grow and thrive in your faith-walk.
Have you heard of the term, Spiritual Disciplines? I know, the word discipline doesn’t sound fun so let’s call them Practices.
Remember, to practice something means just that, practice. It does not mean mastery (though the result is more mastery in that area). It is a continuous process that you get better at doing and become stronger along the way. So, the relationship deepens, grows, and becomes more intimate because you are connecting to the Vine (Jesus) through the Practices.
Eight Spiritual Practices:
- Prayer & Meditation
- Bible Reading, Study, & Memorization
- Praise & Worship
- Service & Hospitality
- Creative Silence & Solitude
You can find a more detailed explanation of each of these Practices as a FREE e-book to download on my website.
What I want to address here is your need to start Today on one of these Practices. The first two are considered Internal Practices. This is where your first cup on the fountain fills up, YOU. Now, coming to God in Your Way is the next step so that you can be consistent and show up every day. Not only should you ‘pencil in’ an appointment with God into your daily agenda . . .
