With the start of the New Year only days away, I thought it might be nice to introduce something new to Spiritually Grounded.
Over the past couple of months, I have been on the search for Orthodox Christian devotionals that can provide wisdom, encouragement and direction in order to enrich my spiritual life. Whilst I found various resources, some of which were great, I did struggle to find a single source that was a) Orthodox b) Biblical and c) concise. So I thought to myself, why not create some personal devotionals as based on the Orthodox Faith and teachings with the aim that these reflections will help me set my mind right in order to connect with the Lord. And in the hope that these devotionals might be of benefit to others, I’ve decided to publish them on this blog. This is how Matters of the Heart came to fruition.
Matters of the Heart is a collection of short devotionals to be published weekly, each beginning with scripture and ending with a prayer. These devotionals aim to enrich and cultivate our life in Christ by reflecting on the faith and the contemporary Christian life. It is my hope that these Orthodox devotionals are insightful, thought provoking and encouraging to all who take the time to read them. And I urge you to join me as we embrace what really matters most, the Matters of the Heart.
