This is a book outline and a work in progress. The hope is to describe a way to grow closer to God and, as a result, have a less anxious and more fulfilling life through establishing a sacred space and time to train your body and mind to be aware of God’s presence. My example of this is my back porch.
Everyone needs a back porch. This is any place of solitude where you can shake off the world’s garbage and think God sized thoughts. Mine is actually my back porch, complete with a desk and prayer benches. It is my “Friday office”. It is where I write and study on my off days. Yours might be anywhere but if you don’t have a sacred space of your own, I hope this blog can be your back porch and provide you a safe starting place to seek God. The ultimate goal of this exercise is to recognize God wherever we are.
Follow along and comment where you wish and see where this goes. Better yet, apply the principles and watch your awareness of God grow.
Read it and use it thoughtfully but remember, “Thou shalt not steal”.
