Seeking Relationship with God: 56 devotional journal prompts to grow your faith

“Ask and it will be given to you; seek and you will find; knock and the door will be opened to you.” ~ Matthew 7:7

“Now this is eternal life: that they know you, the only true God, and Jesus Christ, whom you have sent.” ~ John 17:3

A journey of self-discovery can take countless paths, but it starts with Ask, Seek, and Knock. Jesus wasn’t talking about an Easter egg hunt or vending machine version of spirituality. Rather, He wanted us to focus our minds and think about what really matters to us. Then we need to get to work searching our hearts and our lives for the things that lead us closer to Him.

This collection of devotional journal prompts is designed to inspire serious spiritual introspection, enabling you to move from wherever you are in your faith journey to the next level. Those who are just discovering Jesus or the whole idea of God will have different answers than those who have walked with Him in faith for many years, but the concepts contained in the questions can be adapted to individual needs and creeds.

You See What You Look At

Everyone has a unique perspective, but most of us have allowed society to program the way we process and react to the things around us. Most of us fall into very conventional patterns of what dominates our attention. The media shouts at us and tells us to focus on X, Y, and Z because they deem them important (and most likely lucrative).

But the truth remains, metaphorically or literally, that we see what we look at. What we see affects what we think about and how we feel, whether we’re looking in the mirror, or at the news, or into the neighbor’s yard. Do we see the bright smile, the medical break-through, and the blooming roses? Or do we focus on the thick waist, the local crime, and the dandelions getting ready to spew seeds?

Expanding our vision and adjusting our focus to see the good in the world brings joy and hope even when life seems to crumble at our feet.

The trick is to trust the Lord’s wisdom more than our own, His perception of Reality more than our limited, microcosmic view. Oh, we say we trust Him, but if we continue with a dim outlook on the future, we’re fooling ourselves. Thankfully, it’s an easy fix once we know what to do.

Written from the Latter-day Saint (Mormon) perspective, this book offers 11 practical ways to change how you look at the world around you in order to find more happiness in daily life. This is suitable for the whole family.
