Bible Studies

I'm going to use this blog to journal my way through life. It will help me keep track of prayers, journaling, answers to prayer, praises, spiritual links/articles, books I'm reading, my growth and so on. Maybe it will be helpful to others as well. My goals with this blog are to grow in the Lord, grow as a person, grow as a wife and mother, and grow as a friend. I pray that it will benefit any of you reading as well. Thanks for visiting and sharing my journey :)

Ways to Connect with God

Our church had a sermon on the book Sacred Pathways by Thomas.  It shared that there are many ways to worship and connect with God and that we all tend to 1-2 ways.  None are better then another and we shouldn't compare ourselves to each other.  I never realized how many different ways in the Bible there are that show how people connected with God.   In the book he explains each way and the strengths and weaknesses of each way.  He then goes on to give examples of people from the Bible for each pathway.  Jesus used all the ways to connect with God. 

The pathways are:
1.  Nature
2.  Intellectual
3.  Serving
4.  Activist
5.  Symbols
6.  Contemplative
7.  Worship

I would say that I'm a combination of intellectual, serving and contemplative.  What are you?
