Fueling your Spiritual Growth

Hello Friend! 
Everyone wants to grow. Whether it is wanting to learn to depend on God, not murder your spouse, raise decent children, step out in faith or find healing for deep inner wounds - we all long for guidance. The problem is that the solutions this world offers are not usually very long lasting. Real lasting change comes when we learn to stay connected to God daily. No magic words, and no secret formula exists - it all comes down to a daily walk with God. How do we actually do that? How do we allow the Gospel to form us? One big piece of the puzzle is found by nourishing our minds. The Apostle Paul wrote: “..be transformed by the renewal of your mind, that by testing you may discern what is the will of God, what is good and acceptable and perfect.” (Romans 12:2 ESV). Over the last year I have been slowly compiling resources to share with you. I pray that in this list you find a Bible reading plan, a book, a podcast or a video that will fuel spiritual growth in your life. Take a look! I’d love to hear your thoughts.  Praying for you! -  Pastor Ryan
