I just finished reading The Circle Maker by Mark Batterson. This was a great read and I highly recommend it! Because I am unsure of how to explain everything I took away from the book I want to share some quotes … Continue reading
Today I finished reading Believing God by Beth Moore.
This was the first Beth Moore book I have ever read. It was very good and I will definitely be reading more of her material. One of the most impacting parts of this book was when Moore urged me (as the reader) to build a “Faith Timeline”.
Here is how to make your own:
- Draw a line across a piece of paper.
- Divide the line into fifths to the best of your ability.
- Take your age and divide it by 5. For each section of the timeline put a portion of your life according to this simple math. For myself the math looks something like this: 27 (my age) / 5 = 5.4, so I rounded to 6 (yes, I know 5.4 doesn’t round to 6, but it was the number I chose). On the first dot I wrote my birth year (1988). On the second dot I wrote 1994, 6 years old. The third says 2000, 12 years old…and so on.
- Now insert times when God has moved in your life throughout the timeline. When were you saved? Baptized? God answered a prayer? Healing came? God taught you something? You grew in the Lord?
This was a cool experience for me. I could really see the different times God has moved in my life and shown Himself. It reminded me that He is always there, even when it feels alone. I cannot wait to continue to add moves of God to this timeline! I cannot wait to see how God continues to be faithful! I cannot wait for His timing on all of the things He has for me! I can’t wait!!!
