In the last several months, I’ve noticed a theme crop up in numerous conversations with friends, acquaintances, and strangers. That theme has, at its root, a question:
What does it look like for me to connect to God in my specific life station or personality type?
This has a lot of bearing on the work done here at Still Forming, and I’ve begun to take this question seriously.
For instance, the foundation of this site is a week-daily invitation to a moment of stillness in your day. But what if moments of stillness rarely exist in your world? What do you do if quiet reflections of the heart are a luxury you can barely fathom?
Or, what if you’re an extrovert? What if you’d rather be outdoors than sitting quietly at your desk, reading the scriptures? What if you need to see and hear and touch God to know he’s real, rather than use your intuition?
In other words:
Is there room for me and God to connect, no matter where I am in life or how I’m made?
My response to that question is yes. And I’ll share more of my thoughts on this here with you as I continue to explore and consider the question. (Some of my thoughts on the question have been previously written here, here, here, and here.)
But for now, I’d like to open up an opportunity for you to share your input.
Where is God where you live right now? How are you finding God in the midst of your current life station?
How do you connect to God through the way you’re made? How does he make himself uniquely personal to you and the person that you are?
