Spiritually speaking, where do you want to be in five years? Where would you want to have grown in knowledge, skill, or ministry experience? Write down a few goals, noting steps you could take to see yourself get there. Find someone who can help you or walk alongside you.
What are the biggest obstacles to growing spiritually in your life? What are you doing to overcome those obstacles?
Who is someone that is a few steps ahead of you spiritually? Ask them how they got to where they are and if they can help you grow.
How have you grown over the last year?
God of peace, continue to make me more like You.
I thank You that Your work in Christ is done. Jesus, thank You that You loosened the stranglehold of sin and removed the sting of death. Nothing can separate me from Your love! Not brokenness, affliction, trials, even death. Victory is Yours!
Yet, I acknowledge that Your work in me is still being done. Holy Spirit, thank You for faithfully loosening the grip of sin as I submit to Your leading. Help me to continue to turn toward You and away from sin. Thank You for comforting me when life is difficult and darkness is around me. Help me to seek Your peace and comfort every day.
O God, sanctify every part of my being. Sanctify this church, this city, and all of creation. Heaven, make your home on earth. Lord, continue to make all things new! Amen.
“All shall be well. And all shall be well. All manner of things shall be well.”” −Julian of Norwich
