  1. 1. Spiritual Journey By, Joyce Pultz October 2, 2014
  2. 2. Gathering my thoughts Taking the time to be still. To discern my own mind, Now it is time to reflect.
  3. 3. Reflecting on lifes spiritual journey Before my heart broke with sorrow. It is hard to see, Through the tears and fears that flood out of my soul
  4. 4. Through those tears, I see my journey. A journey that began a long time ago. I remember, Like it was yesterday.
  5. 5. A day which came In like a flood, As Christ poured himself Into a small child And adopted me as one of his own.
  6. 6. My soul was open To the movement of the Holy Spirit. Guiding and directing my life, Even when I had chosen another path.
  7. 7. Choosing a path on my own Sent my soul into utter darkness Even when I was hiding from the Lord, He Saw Me, He Found Me, He Loved Me, He Saved Me.
  8. 8. Seeing through the eyes of desperation I ran back My soul was empty and Full of shadows.
  9. 9. Forgiveness Tenderness Love With open arms, My Heavenly Father And my earthly parents Helped fix my broken soul.
  10. 10. Resurrection brought Life back into my soul Like a tree with roots that are deep within The ground. I grew deeper, and deeper into Gods word and his promises, I flourished.
  11. 11. For I know the plans I have for you, Declares the Lord, plans to prosper you and not to harm you, Plans to give you hope and a future. (Jeremiah 29:11)
  12. 12. Hope is given to this broken heart In the mist of such deep sorrow I thought my faith was gone. It was not gone but always there Even when life seemed too hard to bare.
  13. 13. Through this journey God does not promise That life with him would be empty of:
  14. 14. Pain Sorrow Brokenness Distress Worry Sickness or Death Name it we have felt it.
  15. 15. He does promise To give his PEACE in the mist of the storm, MERCY when we dont deserve any, HOPE when there seems no way, FAITH like a mustard see, which grows into a mighty tree, LOVE with no strings attached, GRACE in abundance.
  16. 16. In all of this, his presences is always here.
  17. 17. In this journey, life does Not end but where life begins, When we come and see with Open Eyes Open Hearts Open Souls
  18. 18. Our human life is frail In this Physical form But in the Lord There is Life Which gives strength.
  19. 19. This strength does not come from ourselves But from Jesus Christ, God the Father, and The helper who is sent to guide our lives.
  20. 20. Through this this reflection I have seen the helper Guide me through the ebbs and flows of life Which has brought me peace even in the mist Of a mighty storm.
