The Steps Of My Soul
Well, it’s official … my first entry on this new blog.
As a follower of Jesus, I try to start each morning (as I did this morning) with a “quiet time” where I read my bible, pray and ask God to direct my day. I also spend time journaling my insights, prayers, what I feel God is telling me – those things I need to act on. Journaling, in fact, has become an important part of tracking my spiritual growth, answers to prayer and God sightings – the incredible move of God in and around me. As I reflect on this daily discipline, I am reminded of a recent insight from a great spiritual leader whom I admire and respect …
With Jill Briscoe at the Revive Your Soul Conference
I had the privilege recently to play my violin at the Revive Your Soul conference for pastors and church leaders in Toronto. I shared the stage with teacher and author Jill Briscoe (wife of evangelist and pastor Stuart Briscoe). Jill shared some readings and thoughts from her recent book The Deep Place Where Nobody Goes where she describes her quiet time as arranging a meeting with God “on the steps of my soul.” I like that! She further shared that when we read the Bible we often read it in the wrong way “as if we are reading to God.” Why not open the Bible (if we truly believe they are the words of God) and and “let Him read His word to you!” What a profound thought. If we do this, God will reveal Himself in amazing ways!
Until next time …
Congratulations on your first post! Great to see you on the web.
