As I read Peter Scazzero's Emotionally Healthy Spirituality, I begin to ask myself why blogging has been so very good for me emotionally and spiritually.
Scazzero explains that in contemplative spirituality, folks develop a "balanced, harmonious rhythm of life that enables [them] to be aware of the sacred in all of life."
Blogging every day--with the intent to notice God--offers a rhythm that indeed opens my awareness to sacred things. When you set out to find what connects you to God each day, you realize that it all does.
If you let it. If you ask it to.
Suddenly, you're worshiping a Mysterious Creator in everything from dirty kitchen floors to blooming flowers. You see the hand of God in acorns and loose teeth and Christmas cookies.
You find yourself with God all day long. Nothing's changed about this family, this house, this neighborhood, my income, or my unfulfilled dreams. My circumstances are exactly the same. But I've changed. I've let the presence of God infuse every corner of it.
Now, it all bursts at the seams with beauty, joy, and wonder.
Blogging as a spiritual practice invites me to find God reflected in all of it.
Have you found blogging to be a spiritual practice?
