The spiritual journey is a deeply personal one. We all experience God in different ways, and we all grow at a different pace and in different ways; what helps one person grow closer to God and follow Jesus more closely might have no significant impact on another person. Follow the promptings of the Holy Spirit in your heart.

The spiritual journey isn’t usually a linear process, either, with one step leading directly to the next in every single case. Ask God to show you what to try next.

We encourage you to be intentional about your spiritual journey, always asking for God’s guidance, and always knowing that God will love us no matter how much we do or don’t do, NO MATTER WHAT!

When we accept God’s amazing love, there’s nothing we have to do to receive God’s unconditional love. In fact, the more we fall in love with God, the more God transforms our hearts and the more we want to become authentic followers of Jesus. Our doing grows out of our sincere intention to seek God, our desire to connect with God, ourselves, and others, our willingness to reflect on our lives and our experiences with God, and ultimately, especially, our encounters with the divine.

The Gospel of John reminds us that God wants us to experience abundant life: “I have come that you might have life, and have it abundantly!” (John 10:10). So, here’s to your abundant life with God!
