awakenings series



Each of us spends our lives on a journey toward God. Yet often our most deeply felt longings—for meaning, for love, for significance—end up leading us away from, instead of toward, our Creator and the person he made us to be.


AWAKENINGS:Finding Your Way Back to God shows you how to understand and listen to your longings in a whole new way. It’s about waking up to who you really are, and daring to believe that God wants you to be found even more than you want to find him. It’s about making the biggest wager of your life: “God, if you are real, then make yourself real to me” – and seeing if God responds.


The authors of Finding Your Way Back to God write:God wants to be found by you more than you want to find him. That's why we can promise that, if you seek him with an open heart and an open mind, you will find him. He'll make himself known to you.


Consider using this thirty-day guide. All you need to do is set aside fifteen minutes or so per day to reflect on a personal question, record some of your thoughts, and pray one of five simple prayers. We believe that the process will take you all the way from feeling miserable about being distant from God to feeling full of joy, knowing you are his unconditionally loved child!


If you want to believe this claim is true but you're not so sure it is, our advice is that you take a bet that it is true. Make a wager with God by praying this prayer:God, if you are real,
make yourself real to me.What have you lost if we're wrong and God doesn't make himself real to you? A few minutes of your time. But if you win the wager, the payoff will be the most important relationship you could ever have.
