Description: For anyone on a spiritual path, the most often asked questions are usually "What am I supposed to do with my life?" or "What is my purpose for this life?" If you've ever pondered these questions, a thorough review of who you are; your experiences, passions, influencers, personality and spiritual gifts, can help you step back and look at your life from a more objective perspective, and may give you the insights you are seeking.
Your Divine Plan is a program that I created while serving as a lay leader in the United Methodist Church several years ago to address this issue. Using the Christian scriptures, I researched and defined thirty-three spiritual gifts, developed an assessment tool, as well as worksheets to help participants review who they are and to help them discover where God may be leading them. The accompanying workbook leads you through each exercise, explains spiritual gifts, and helps identify patterns in your life that you may not have noticed. We also cover some of the barriers and obstacles that prevent us from stepping into our plan, and provide encouragement to overcome them.
In the first session, we will review the workbook, discuss spiritual gifts and the exercises, and create a plan for completing the workbook. In the second session, we will review your experiences as you completed the workbook, answer questions, review the things that hold us back and discuss methods for overcoming them. We will also meditate and dedicate ourselves to service.
