Formed Together: Contemplative Life

Summary: Spiritual Formation in Christ occurs beneath the “water line” first, in the place of the heart.  Do we wait patiently to hear God’s voice, letting God’s Word transform us?  Are we beholding the beauty of the Lord?

Scripture: Psalm 139


1.  Am I willing to go beneath the water line?  Do I have the space in my heart, soul… life?  Do I have people who can go there with me?

2. Read Psalm 139 again as a group.  As you read prayerfully, what truths is God highlighting for you today? Why do you think you need to hear that?

3. Commit yourself to the prayer of Examen for two weeks.  Plan (and set an alarm) to ask the Lord to show you himself and more about yourself – three times a day.
