Monday Motivation Introduction

Monday Motivation Introduction
We hope you join Pastor Guy in this awesome opportunity!
A little over a year ago I went on a six week Sabbatical. I had never been on a Sabbatical before and wasn’t completely sure of what to expect. I booked a campground for the first week of my spiritual renewal and I packed some camping gear, some books, my Bible, and, yes, a fishing pole.

During this quiet time in the mountains near Flagstaff, I read a book that has changed my life—it is called “The Divine Mentor” by Wayne Cordeiro. The sub-title of the book is: Growing Your Faith as You Sit at the Feet of the Savior. This book challenged me to spend time each day purely in His Word. It suggested a reading plan that I have found to be different than any other I have used before. Each day has a chapter from the Old Testament, Proverbs or Psalms, and the New Testament. Immediately I was amazed at how much thought had gone into this reading plan—all of the different chapters for that day were correlated with the others, Old Testament passages were tied directly to passages from the New Testament, and each day I was awakened by a new discovery in the Scriptures.

This reading plan, along with some journaling, has changed my Christian walk. Each day I am drinking from God’s word and filling my soul. I have seen more spiritual growth over this past year than I have in years. And I have found by reading from the Scriptures each day I not only fill my soul, but it begins to overflow, not just into my life, but into the lives of others.

I would like for you to join me by reading this weekly blog. My goal with this blog will be to share with you the nuggets that I have found from the Scriptures over the past week. I will select a passage that really spoke to me and then share with you what blessed me from God’s Word and why. It is my hope that you will be encouraged in your faith, and that you will take up your cross along with me in this journey. Together, we will begin to learn from the Divine Mentor.
