IF YOU CHOOSE TAKE THAT JOURNEY, my role will be to provide you with spiritual direction—or mentoring as it is often called, or discipleship by another name, or coaching, and the list goes on. Call it what you will, my part will be to guide you into the truths of God (originating always from His character and His Holy Word), and helping you to discover for yourself where God is leading you in the midst of life’s circumstances and how to grow more Christlike through that journey. Which, for our purposes, really means inviting God in to lead both of us on a journey together. “For where two or three gather in my name, there am I with them” Mt 18:20 says. And so we know He will be, as we journey through this life-mentoring program in a manner whereby we continually invite God in so that you learn and grow, and I discern where God is taking you next in this process of transformation. In short, by way of individual discipleship and through a variety of mentoring tools, I am fully committed to walking with you as you learn to hear God’s voice and to embrace His transforming love in your life and relationships. I like to think of it as walking in a mutual relationship of spiritual direction with the Holy Spirit as the guide. As in, you walk, I point. Or, I help ignite your passion for God and then get out of the way. God puts it best: “As iron sharpens iron, so one man sharpens another” (Prov 27:17).
So I thank you for taking the time to listen. I hope and pray this encourages you to consider joining with me on this 24-week journey into the heart of God.
