Yesterday I had my regular meeting with my spiritual director.
I am a big fan of meeting with a spiritual director. Whenever we meet I leave encouraged, challenged, stretched and with a better perspective/vision on my life.
One of the most significant things that happens for me is that as I recall and retell where God has been active in my life since we last met, I discover just how much Jesus has been doing! In the day-to-day of life, sometimes we can feel like our spiritual lives are dry or that God is not as active as we would like or that somehow we are a disappointment to our Heavenly Father.
But as I recall the ways He has been active in my life and remember His faithfulness, joy, smile, direction, grace and word — I realize how much He is doing.
Sometimes we need an outside perspective to see how we are growing — and what God is doing — in our lives.
