Sacred Pathways Bible Study Guide: Nine Ways to Connect with God

As believers in Christ, many of us today fall into the trap of thinking we have to approach God in a certain way. This one-size-fits-all mentality typically leaves them feeling frustrated and distant from God. But the truth is that not every person will engage with God in the same way.

In Sacred Pathways, Gary Thomas describes nine spiritual temperaments and provides tools to assess your key pathway and encourages you to investigate the ways you most naturally express yourself in your relationship with God.

If your spiritual walk is not what you’d like it to be, you can change that, starting here.

5. The Broken Way: A Daring Path into the Abundant Life – Ann Voskamp

We are fragile and we know it. Sometimes, living with Christ in a messed-up world feels less like victory and more like walking uphill. Ann Voskamp, the author of One Thousand Gifts, sits at the edge of her life and her own unspoken brokenness and asks: What if you really want to live abundantly before it’s too late? What do you do if you really want to know abundant wholeness?

This study is for the lovers and the sufferers. For the busted ones who are ready to bust free, the ones ready to break molds, break chains, break measuring sticks, and break all this bad brokenness with an unlikely good brokenness. You could be one of the Beloved who is broken—and still lets yourself be loved.
