The meditation questions for today involve growth as Christ’s disciple:
On a scale of 1 to 5 (1 indicating I am just beginning and 5 indicating I am well-developed):
How am I growing in relationship with God through regular times of personal Bible study and prayer?
How do I respond challenges with peace and faith rather than anxiety and fear?
How well do I avoid addictive behaviors to meet my needs?
Do I have a growing relationship with someone who encourages my spiritual health and personal growth…a spiritual partner?
Am I honoring God with my finances the way I budget and in my personal giving to His work through tithing?
How can I grow this year to become more like Christ?
Food has been an addiction to which I have turned all my life. During the 21 day spiritual journey in January God gave me a vision for losing forty pounds. But I am coming to see that the goal is a measuring stick for a much deeper spiritual work God wishes to do inside me. These journeys into the world of fasting are about gaining control of my appetites and addictions so that Christ may have the preeminence.
Which of these questions spoke most to you?
