INVEST IN A DISCIPLE’S NOTEBOOK to do some “spiritual processing” and develop a heightened awareness for what is meaningful.
Feel free to sketch, color, and doodle, but be sure to:
- Keep a record of your journey by disciplining your mind and heart to wait, watch, and listen for God’s Spirit every day. Your Disciple’s Notebook will become a gold mine of guidance!
- Be ready for sacred momentsand divine appointments. Look for recurring themes and threads to emerge. They will encourage you that you are going in the right direction.
- Notice signs of God’s movement in the ordinary thingsyou are already doing every day. It’s Jesus’ way of saying, “You’re following me!”
Acknowledge emerging hunger for more. Note what grows inside of you. The Disciple’s Notebook is your space to grow an idea, to hold onto your ideas, and keep track of it so that you can see how God is preparing you for the next step.
When we write out our faith journey, it nurtures a habit of looking for insight and wisdom and value in all things and in all circumstances.
