Spiritual Formation and Growth


"Cease striving and know that I am God; I will be exalted among the nations, I will be exalted in the earth."
(Psalm 46:10)

Spiritual Growth and Transformation

How do we feed our souls and train in life-giving spiritual disciplines for this marathon? How can we weave Sabbath into our lives to genuinely experience rest? What does it take to refocus and refuel on the run? How can we pace ourselves for "A Long Obedience in the Same Direction"? Christians--especially those in full-time ministry--may sometimes neglect our own souls even while we encourage and nurture others to grow .How is it with your soul?

  • Some of us follow Christ from our Head--neck up, functioning through study, reading, knowledge. The danger is, we can know the Bible backwards and forwards, but sometimes nothing travels beneath the collarbone. We can know about God without knowing God. “Knowledge makes arrogant, but love edifies.” (1 Cor 8:1) “It is possible to be as straight as a gun barrel theologically, and just as empty spiritually” (AW Tozer)
  • Some of us follow our Heart--neck down, always seeking warm fuzzies, a special word, experience, signs and wonders. We can be relying on emotions and feelings instead of Jesus and the Word of God, feeling our way on a roller coaster without a solid Biblical grid. "For the word of God is living and active and sharper than any two-edged sword, and piercing as far as the division of soul and spirit, of both joints and marrow, and able to judge the thoughts and intentions of the heart." (Hebrews 4:12)
  • Some of us relate to God through our Hands--serving, doing, going, building, working, making things happen. We might be going through the motions, serving God without knowing God, trying to live out Romans 12:9-21 without doing Romans 12:1... "Therefore I urge you, brethren, by the mercies of God, to present your bodies a living and holy sacrifice, acceptable to God, which is your spiritual service of worship." 

Are we to serve God with our head, our heart or our hands? Yes. Psalm One is all about leanrining to follow hard after God with our head, heart and hands.

Do you need to pull away and receive renewed strength and vision for your life or ministry? Could you use a Day of Soul Care to clear out all the fears and anger and confusion and apathy and dullness that can set in if we don’t pay attention to the state of our own souls?
Refocus and Refuel - Come and receive a shot of life-giving encouragement as we seek God. We’ll consider how to consistently integrate healthy, holy rhythms into our life so we can live in Him freely and lightly. We sometimes think cannot afford to take time out of our busy schedules, but in reality, we can’t afford not to!

Our goal in Psalm One is not merely information, but genuine transformation.Most of you know that one of my heartbeats is Soul Care. How would you describe your soul today? Neglected? Celebrating? Growing? Stagnant? You can find my article on “Is It Well with Your Soul?” in the latest issue of “Just Between Us”—or on the website.
