God created us as spirit beings, with a soul (mind, will and emotions), living in a physical body. Life should be lived 'inside out' yet so often we get caught up in the physical and/or emotional aspects of our world. It's time to go a little deeper – into our heart and our spirit. Our spirit is the part of us that can connect with and experience God. The writer of the book of Proverbs describes it as the candle of the Lord (Prov.20:27).
In our time, religion seems to be out of favour, while spirituality is in – all sorts of it. This is a reflection of the longing we all have for transcendence and for connection with something outside of and beyond ourselves. It's the God-shaped vacuum inside each one of us. We can try to fill that void with all sorts of things, but ultimately, only God himself can fill that desire and thirst we have inside of us.
On my BLOG, I have written a variety of article related to spirituality, covering topics such as: prayer, connecting with God, ancient spiritual practices, dealing with spiritual dryness, stages of faith, handling doubt, and the love of God.
