A Spiritual Autobiography

    Have you ever composed a spiritual autobiography?  I’m sure most of you at one point in time read someone’s autobiography, but I’m not talking about that, I’m talking about a spiritual autobiography.  

    November is known for a month to be thankful.  Many of you will take time to write down something you are thankful about each day as a way of reminding yourself of all the great things you have in your life, some of you in spite of many difficulties.  I encourage you to do this and more.  

I encourage you to consider taking some time

and writing down a spiritual autobiography.

    I encourage you to consider taking some time and writing down a spiritual autobiography.  Take the time to trace your faith journey, giving thanks at the ways God has carried you through and remembering the lessons you learned through some of the difficult times.  Far too often we have amnesia in matters of faith and we forget all we have learned along the way.  

    God is patient to remind us, but as you spend intentional time this November being thankful, spend a little more time being thoughtful about the journey.  I imagine the two exercises will fit quite nicely together and you will find as you remember your spiritual journey, you have even more for which you are thankful.
