Desiring to Know God More
On top of a growing desire rekindled within me to try to know God more, a recent workshop I attended inspired and encouraged me to develop a biography of God. My mind immediately turned to a book I purchased 3 years ago – My Biography of God by Sam Brock. I came home from the workshop and found that book, realized I barely started developing it, and became excited about getting back to it. Basically, it’s a way to weekly study one portion of scripture and become saturated in that one portion, reflecting on God’s character and recording that character interactively throughout the book. It’s not a completed book about God that someone else wrote – It’s MY reflections on God and a way for me to be reminded of the goodness, omnipotence, wisdom, peace, patience, redemption, etc. of God in my life. I get to write it and study and memorize along the way.
So, I start this week on Colossians 1:9-29 “By Him All Things Consist.” I hope to share things I come across along the way, and hopefully stay with it for the weeks ahead.
