Years and years ago when I was in university as part of a Soul Care class we did a week-long retreat to a local camp. That week we did a spiritual exercise called a “Soul Dot”. Essentially we just drew a big circle on a piece of paper and were asked to pray and write/draw how we were doing on the inside. That was it, there were no real extra directions. The whole goal was to pause and take a moment to self reflect on how we were doing spiritually.
The exercise was impactful and has become part of my personal and ministry routine for the last 20 years. I regularly invited students and leaders to take time at Youth Group every few months and run through a similar exercise. I also encouraged them to keep a copy and compare them along the way. To use it as a physical reminder of what God’s been doing in their life.
So as 2020 kicks off I wanted to share this resource with you all and encourage you to give it a try every few months this year. I’ve refined it a bit over the years to help people be a bit more focused but feel free to adapt the concept to fit your needs.
If you have any questions reach out and enjoy this free resource.
