Seeking Perspective on the Faith Journey
Unlike other growth areas in The Maxwell Plan for Personal Growth, you need something other than an assessment to begin to uncover where you are on the journey and where you can grow in your faith.
Early in this study on faith, some questions, issues, or dilemmas may be surfacing in your life. The Bible teaches that it’s not good for people to be alone. We’re meant to learn from and teach others on the spiritual journey.
Since you are not able to sit down with John C. Maxwell to talk through where you are on your faith journey, you would benefit from someone who is ahead of you who has experience and wisdom in spiritual matters. Find someone to fill that role in your life, and meet with him or her starting this week. (If you’re not part of a local fellowship of believers, this is a good time for you to find one where you can connect and participate. This is often a good place to find a mentor.)
If you have questions about faith that you are having a difficult time answering on your own, then make an appointment this week to meet with that mentor.
The Role of My Faith: Reflect
The law of Intentionality teaches that growth doesn’t just happen. Look at your calendar and make sure you have scheduled time five days a week to grow in your faith. Set aside a time and a location to write in your journal. Use the following as a guide for exploring your thoughts and wishes regarding growing in your faith.
Think about what it would mean for faith to take a bigger role in your life. What would a stronger connection with God give you? What would it take away? How would it change you now? How do you think it would change your future?
