Do you ever feel like something is missing in your walk with God?
Have you ever had the longing to go deeper in your faith, but you just don’t know where to begin?
If you answered yes to either of those questions, you, my friend, are not alone!
I’ve been in that place many times, where I found myself just going through the motions – going to Church, having my quiet time, trying to concentrate on prayer – but on the inside, I felt weary and empty.
Those dry seasons in our faith, when the ache for more of God feels impossible to fill, can feel incredibly discouraging and lonely.
The truth that God’s presence goes with us wherever we go can be hard to hold onto when we feel stuck.
And in today’s world, with its anxieties and distractions, and unknowns, it can be so difficult to live day by day with an awareness of God’s presence with us.
Spiritual practices or spiritual rhythms can be extremely life-giving and helpful if you are longing for something more in your relationship with God. If you are looking for ways to deepen and enrichen your connection with your Creator, then spiritual practices can act as the stepping stones you need to get your heart and soul postured towards more of God.
In this blog series, we’re going to explore different Christian spiritual practices such as:
- Spiritual direction
- Breath prayer
- Centering prayer
- The Daily Examen
- Lectio Divina
