Try It This Week (A Discipleship Tool)

What should you do when you feel spiritually dry? Or when God seems distant? Or when you are having difficulty connecting with God in prayer?

First of all, don't panic.  We all go through seasons when we feel like our spiritual lives have become dry or routine.

Second, keep it simple and return to the fountain of living water. In his classic book, "The Practice of the Presence of God", Brother Lawrence offers five simple ways to connect with the Holy Spirit.
1. Remember God's presence in your life.
2. Praise God (simply for who God is).
3. Ask God for grace.
4. Offer God your troubles.
5. Thank God for all you have been given.

As you seek to keep your relationship with God a spring from which others can be refreshed, may these daily practices keep you connected to God's love and grace.

Always praying for you,
Brian Clark

P.S. - We now have two options for disciple making training.  One will be held on Tuesday, April 24, and the other will be held the following Tuesday, May 1. Both sessions will be identical and will last from 10:00am - Noon at Princeton UMC.
