Question Time

Questions are a sign of curiosity and humility. They fascinate us and often remind us of a childlike innocence. I find questions very useful in my spiritual development. They are allies and tools of growth – if they are used and used smartly.

Here are some question I find useful at the end of the year and the beginning of a new one:

  1. What mistakes can I learn from – looking back at  the last 12 months?
  2. What relationship needs forgiving, healing or restoring due to trauma in the past few months?
  3. What can I celebrate – looking back – and show gratitude to God and others?
  4. What has been God doing in my life – could I sum it up in a sentence?
  5. What regrets do I need to bring back and leave at the foot of the cross?
  6. What habit/ hobby is my greatest enemy in time wasting and how can I change that?
  7. What destructive habits/ hurtful attitudes do I need to change in the year ahead?
  8. What would a dream year look like – emotionally, physically, spiritually and relational?
  9. Whose life would I like to see changed through my actions and words in the next year, and what will I do about it?
  10. What is my plan for my spiritual growth: Bible reading, prayer, serving, connecting?
I encourage you to take some time to ponder, pray, maybe write down some answers and even get together with a trusted friend, spouse or mentor and talk and pray through this.
Search me, O God, and know my heart;
test me and know my anxious thoughts.
Point out anything in me that offends you,
and lead me along the path of everlasting life.
Psalm 139:23-24
