Focusing For Spiritual Direction
(Written by Andrew Dunn)
- How am I praying?
- How is my praying changing?
- What is God saying to me in my Scripture reading/meditation times?
- What is changing in me as I listen to God's word for me?
- What is God like for me at present?
- What image or metaphor best desribes this?
- What are it's strengths?
- What are it's limitations?
- What is the invitation here for my relationship with God?
- How well do I know Jesus?
- How is Jesus enjoying our relationship?
- What more of himself is he offering to me?
The Holy Spirit:
- In what ways do I sense the Spirit at work in my life?
- What fruits of the Spirit can I see in my life at present?
- What place am I at in my journey?
- What topographical image best depicts this place? (describe it in detail)
- What is the invitation coming to me in this image?
- What do I need to confess, let go, repent of, change etc?
- What signs of grace have I seen this month?
