We have a profound spiritual Call upon our lives. It requires an integrated life. It’s found in the gospels:
“Love the Lord your God with all of your heart and with all of your soul and with all of your strength and with all of your mind.” (Matthew 22:37, Mark 12:30, Luke 10:27)
Oh, that this could be my sole motive for every decision!
What does this all encompassing love look like in the 21st century? How can we integrate faith into all aspects of life? How does my heart, soul, mind, and strength get involved??
With the encouragement of others, I’ve created a newsletter to spotlight ways to live with the sole motive to love the Lord throughout the day. The new online eZine is called Soul Motive. It’s about soul care, people care, and the all-encompassing love of the Lord.
The Integrated Life
We are all in different seasons of life and in different places on our spiritual journey. But we can all live an integrated. The monthly newsletter will encourage you to connect faith into life where you are right now. No guilt. No pressure.
Amidst the daily craziness of life, the intentional living as a disciple of Christ gets overlooked. The Soul Motive eZine will focus on monthly themes to offer ways to connect faith and life. You’ll find guidance and a plan.
Spiritual disciplines such as prayer, fasting, and study are valuable tools for your faith journey. Soul Motive will explore these disciplines and integrate the disciplines into the exploration. Your spiritual walk, however, is much more that these tools.
Soul Motive will always connect the spiritual disciplines back to matters of heart and soul and mind and strength. The monthly resources in the eZine offer practical ways to incorporate faith into your walk today.
The “Soul Motive” Plan
A new issue of the eZine will arrive the first week of each month. It’s FREE!
It will include:
1) Featured article highlighting an aspect of faith
2) Resources and tools to apply daily
3) “Try Something New” Challenge to encourage the wonder in our lives!
4) Poll/Survey to receive your input regarding the next month’s theme
I hope you will join the Soul Motive eZine email list. Sign up today!
To show my appreciation and to encourage you in your spiritual walk, I’ve created the personal retreat ebook Soul Motive to Pray. The download is available when you sign up for the new eZine. May the Lord bless you abundantly as you pursue Him!
