Transformation – What does this mean to you?
In May on the Healthy Spirituality blog, the spiritual practice of transformation is our featured topic. Each month on my Thursday posts, I pick one theme (or person of faith) to explore deeper. I call this series Tending the Holy Thursdays.
Last week I introduced some thoughts about spiritual transformation what it is like as we, mere humans, are formed by God’s hand. What emotions and images this process produces in our heart. Tuesday I loved Ceil Ryan’s essay about transformation and today I want to share with you some quotes to consider.
As usual I created a free download for you. I wrote out a worksheet for myself and to share with you called “Transformation Reflection Guide: Questions and Quotes to Quicken Change.” Each quote and/or bible verse is followed by a question to prompt my prayers, journaling and thoughts. I have left space after each one for you to add notes too. You can get this free worksheet by clicking the button at the end of the post. It is my hope and prayer that this series and the download will enhance your walk with God.
