A Devotional With A Holistic Approach

People have been using the Daily God Walk as a daily devotional for about 6 years now and it is having a profound effect in many lives.

We have now taken the DGW a step further and adding a holistic approach to it. We are coupling it to the B.I.G. Challenge. The B.I.G. Challenge

The B.I.G. Challenge grew out of a diet program I recently joined. It is the Body By Vi 90 Day Challenge This program is simply a 90 day challenge using a healthy protein shake to replace one or two meals. CLICK HERE TO CHECK OUT THE BODY BY VI CHALLENGE

I am no stranger to diets, I've been on the best, and I always lose weight. But, my problem is that once the diet is finished I begin to celebrate my success by eating the things I had deprived myself of on the diet. Sound familiar?

As I thought about this diet I realized that most of us who struggle with weight do so because we have only focused on the body part of who we are. We are body, soul and spirit and if we are to be healthy in a holistic way we must become healthy in our body, soul and spirit.

With this in mind I realized that the Body By Vi was a good diet for the body, and the Daily God Walk is a good diet for the soul and spirit. CHECK OUT THE DAILY GOD WALK DEVOTIONAL

What is the B.I.G. Challenge? More about that in our next newsletter, but for now just realize that it integrates material for a healthy body, a healthy soul and a healthy spirit into one consistent program.

The G in B.I.G. is for Group. A major component to having a successful program of holistic health is meeting on a regular basis with a support group like a small group Bible Study. In fact, if you are not yet involved in such a group we have some information to help you. Just go to CHECK OUT SMALL GROUP BIBLE STUDY

For those of you who are struggling with behavioral issues like habits you would like to break, addictions, or other undesirable behaviors, we are going to be posting information on how to live in freedom in our next newsletter. For now, if you want more information on recovery issues CHECK OUT GOD WALK - A JOURNEY OF FAITH

Build A Small Group Bible Study Using the Daily God Walk

About 30 years ago I dreamed of breaking my Sunday message into 5 or six components and making a daily devotion out of each component.

I never did get around to doing that, But I have continued to have the conviction that everyone needs a tool to help them establish a daily time of devotion.

Just six years ago I got very serious about providing just such a tool for believers. The tool that was birthed in 2007 was the Daily God Walk (DGW) devotional. Today there are many people across America who look forward to receiving their DGW month after month.

Recently we added the Study Guide Edition of the DGW. This edition concludes each devotion with a principle that is brought out in the text of the devotion for that day.

It also includes an affirmation of the principle to help the reader have a focus for their prayer and meditation.

The affirmation is followed by a reflection which serves as a stimulus for thought on the devotion for the day.

The reflection is followed by a section where the reader can journal their thoughts and write what they feel the Lord telling them in their prayer time.

The purpose of this edition is twofold. First, it gives the reader additional motivation to deepen their faith walk. And secondly, it provides a tool to use in small group Bible study.

I use it in three small groups which meet each week and since I began using it I have experienced much less stress over what We'll be discussing because we all have the same material and everyday there is a new devotion, so it doesn't matter what day of the week the group meets there is fresh material for reflection and discussion.
