Taking Inventory of our Soul

Taking Inventory of our Soul

This past Sunday (January 3), my prepared message focused on being present to God’s presence in our lives and how we need to pay attention to our lives. One way we can do this is by sitting quietly with questions. Reflecting on questions is like taking inventory of our soul. We’re examining what’s working and what isn’t working. We’re taking a look at what we need to keep and what we need to discard. Here are a series of questions I invited folks to reflect upon as we entered into Open Worship.

  • What relationships in my life need to be mended? 
  • Where is the energy in my life? What is presently giving me life? How does this effect how I spend my time and energy?
  • What is the Spirit stirring in my soul?
  • What am I hanging on to that I need to let go of?
  • How do I need to do life differently so that I get different results?
  • How am I getting in my own way?
  • What would it look like for my life to flourish?
  • How ” up to date” is my relationship with God?
  • When I listen deeply to my life, what is it telling me? What does my life speak to me in the depths of my soul?

Take some time to reflect upon your life’s journey. Look back to where you have been and look forward to where you are headed and who you would like to become. Where is God in all of it? What season is your life presently in? What changes or shifts need to occur in your life in order for you to be more faithful to who God has called you to be?

Taking inventory of our soul slows us down long enough to pay attention to life and our lives. It’s in this slowing down that we discover wholeness.
