This past few weeks my son and I have been counting our blessings (journal),  as part of our preparation for the Christmas celebration in December.  I have been encouraged to do this from reading other bloggers sharing their faith,  and also from the new book I have been reading with my book club.  Revealing God's goodness and sharing in His many blessings is such an awesome testimony to see faith at work,  and His provisions on a daily basis.

 In our local community book club which meets once a month,  we are taking turns to lead, share our struggles, and our doubts whilst encouraging soul training.  James Bryon Smith's The Good and Beautiful God, is bringing us all closer to knowing the goodness of Him, reflecting with some powerful but simple exercises.  These include; prayer meditation, finding time to sleep really well, counting your blessings and praising Him.  AND I am only on Chapter 2!

Having read his first book called Embracing the Love of God which was truly a huge blessing and encouragement for me when my mum died, I am enjoying the practical implications that Smith's profound wisdom bring to the table in this bible study.  If you would like to join our virtual book club and share on the ning, please follow this link and sign up.  If you are not a member of the ning please email your teacher or myself for an invite.

One of our sisters in Christ Tina,  shared this Imagodeicommunity link which includes prayerful meditations.  You can subscribe to these and have them sent as a devotion on a daily basis.
