Spiritual direction can help you find deeper meaning and purpose in your life by encouraging you to engage on a deeper level to what God is calling you to be and do. In spiritual direction sessions we create space to cultivate the awareness of the presence of God in your life. We reflect deeply on how God is communicating or wanting to communicate with you in this season and come up with ways for you to respond to God's call.
Most of us get overly busy or burned out from time to time, however we can learn how to slow down just a little to allow God's grace to enliven and refresh our minds, bodies and spirits. It is especially important for those of us that serve in leadership roles such as clergy, pastors, and ministry leaders. There is a constant demand for our attention to be turned outside of ourselves, especially in these roles. We can sometimes forget to pay attention to the dynamics of our own interior lives and our own spiritual growth. Spiritual Direction can help us with that.
As a busy leader myself, spiritual direction helps me to more acutely envision and articulate what God is wanting from me and also what He is wanting to give to me. It is a time for me to inquire of and speak my truth and have another witness it. In doing that I find nuggets of insight and revelation that would have been missed otherwise. I like to say that spiritual direction sessions are often like panning for gold. The golden nuggets that God has placed in each and every one of us.
