I have been struggling with this post because Ann covers SO much in the video and the chapter. So, I’ve decided to break this post up into a couple small sections, which I think gives us a lot to discuss!
The title of chapter six asks the reader: What do you want?
In the video Ann discusses the importance of answering that question – and that for her the answer is seeing God. But it is not the same for everyone.
So, before going any further, think about that question: What do you want?
For Ann, she had this moon-chasing experience that took writing gifts to another level.
Have you had that moment?
I can honestly say, that I haven’t. But what I have experienced is that through writing gifts down, I know God more intimately, and my heart is open and ready for my moon moment.
Is beauty an addiction?
To me, this is one of the most profound parts of this chapter. Because God is beauty, it isn’t beauty that we are hungry for – it is GOD.
It is important for us to remember that beauty requires obedience, and that there is a call on our life to respond in obedience to God.
Seed: What do I want?
Water: Writing gifts daily and being open to moon-chasing opportunities.
Grow: Beauty requires obedience. Can I see God in everything?
What stood out for you in this chapter? Feel free to share the seed that you are growing as we go…
