What Is Collecting Moments?
Compiled of 10 collections, Collecting Moments is a series made up of ebooks, eguides and more, helping you see and experience God in your everyday moments through the unlikely people, places and moments of your life.
Questions, Collections & My Bedroom Floor
I used to think you had to get faith right.
Pray + read your Bible + worship + go to church + volunteer + trust and believe + share your faith + do and be good + love people = right faith. Right?
I lived like this Sunday after Sunday, conference after conference, retreat after retreat, devotional plan after devotional plan, book after book and small group after small group for years … until I snapped. And by snap I mean, I crashed hard on my bedroom floor and asked four very important questions out loud to myself:
- Why am I doing this?
- What’s this all for?
- How did faith become so dull, draining and monotonous?
- Do I even believe this stuff anymore?
If being and doing everything right “for Jesus” leads to indifference and burn out, is it really right? Is it even faith?
Somewhere along the way I forgot why I called myself a Christian.
Somewhere along the way I got caught up with duty, habit and performance.
Somewhere along the way I began collecting all the wrong reasons for faith.
And somewhere along the way, sadly, I lost Jesus.
So a humble journey began…
Unlikely Places, Simple Ways & Everyday Moments
God began peeling away the layers of my soul that were cluttered with rules and responsibility. He began revealing the lies I was storing as truth. He began replacing my anger and frustrations with joy and peace. And He began shining light on the fact that my faith had become more about mindless monotony than meaningful moments.
This journey led me to see, hear, and experience Him in ways I never dreamed possible, in the everyday moments of my life.
I was reminded that He is everywhere, in everything, in everyone, and He desires to reveal Himself in the most unlikely of places, the simplest of ways, and through the unlikeliest of people.
He is patiently waiting to be in relationship with anyone willing to capture and collect beautiful moments with Him.
