Life Event | Belief
Select a life event to sit with God in. Remember to choose an event that is not a ‘big T’ trauma.
Include the following:
- Your age.
- Room/Place of event
- Geographic location where you were living
- People who were there
- + any other significant information
Next, record your emotions related to the event. This can be tough if you’ve shut down your emotions most of your life. There is a list of emotions below to help you.
Then record your interpretation(s) of your world at the time, yourself, others, and/or God.
Connect the Dots
Process. Take a look at what you see at the present time. See if you can identify habitual patterns that have impacted a false or negative view of yourself. In addition to behaviors, pay attention to habits of thought and patterns of feelings. Are there enduring patterns reaching into how you live now?
God’s Message | Love | Interpretation.
As you begin to learn to sit with God in silence and solitude, how can he help you interpret the event and emotions from His perspective of truth, grace, and love?
When you begin and continue to stay in union with God, in this intimate relationship, you will begin not only to desire holiness, but it will become the abundant life you long for.
