Have you purchased Volumes 1 and 2 from my Seek Him book series?
Have you purchased the workbooks that serve as their companions? Or do you think the workbooks are just filler or exhaustive repetition of information, like so many workbooks?
Have you started reading the books? Or do you keep saying, “When the time is right?” Or “When I have the time”?
If you haven’t purchased, used, and tested yourself with these books—now is the time, because every day you are tested, tempted, and attacked. You’re going up against an enemy that has been studying and preparing for you for lifetimes. How long have you been studying and preparing for your enemy?
If you are a follower of my Breaking Bread With Natasha blog, then these are the books many of you were asking me for years to write and have published. I’ve supplied the demand. I’m coming with more. Are you ready? Or did you ask and think I would not deliver? Ah, you should know me better. 🙃
Seek Him, Volume 3 and its companion workbook will be rolling out later this Fall. It’s not my last book, but it’s the last one of this series. Whether you start this year or wait until the struggle forces you to, it’s better to be prepared and equipped, than scrambling for tools and resources. Remember what we gather from studying the Bible—we’re to be content in our circumstances, relying upon faith and hope to persevere. But we aren’t to be complacent or lazy, for that would make us complicit in our own demise.
How the Seek Him Series Works
Volume 1 covers months one through four. It helps to see where you are spiritually and it tests your perceived limits. There will be moments of discomfort. It shouldn’t be a cakewalk. This is where you start to see the boundaries you have created and, or, accepted.
Volume 2 covers the next four months, which should push you past your comfort zone, and encourage you to ask more questions, seek more answers, and break down the barriers of the status quo. You should be challenging where and how you get information, and if and how you use it. You should be peeling back the layers of yourself and getting past the facade you have created out of insecurity, fear, and a need to belong. This is a redefining stage.
Volume 3 covers the remaining four months of a 12-month journey. Not your final journey, just this particular journey. This stage should meet you at a point where you’re truly seeing yourself and how you view your relationship with God, His creations, and this chaotic world, differently. In Volume 3 you are training at a more intense level, no longer regurgitating the same ole same ole you learned in the past, growing up, etc. You’re instead conditioning yourself with a different appreciation for why you’re on this multi-pronged journey, and who you are throughout the process.
It’s about de-programming.
It’s about independent thought.
Less of “Well pastor said…” or “Father so-and-so said…” and more “From my research I found”or “Through prayer what was revealed is…” It’s about going to the Source and not settling for the remnants left by the offspring and byproducts. It’s helping you to discern the religious charlatans and pimps, and their messaging and tactics used, to prey upon you. It’s to discern well-intentioned people who fell to temptation and sadly sacrifice you to maintain what they think they gained from fame and fortune.
Jesus is quoted as saying that we are the temples, we no longer have to go to temples. There’s no more need for the pomp and circumstance, because we carry within us all that we used to pray for. He said that we don’t need an intermediary to speak on our behalf to God—we’re to petition and pray directly to Him. Yet look at how we live and worship in this modern era, more than 2,000 years later. The Bible can be used as a weapon to enslave, a tool to bury people under a mountain of misinformation, or it can be used to redeem, free, and restore people.
“I Like The Title of Volume 2, Can’t I Just Start There?”
You have to read the books in order, because that’s how they are written, with corresponding days picking up where the last book leaves off. Volume 1 starts at Day 1 and Volume 2 starts at Day 125, and so on. The books piggyback off of each other. They also point you forwards and backwards, in a layering effect. Each volume and companion workbook become increasingly more challenging than the one before. They are designed to test you, challenge you, encourage you to go beyond your comfort zone, and never return.
If you’re sick and tired of being sick and tired, pick up and read Volume 1 and Workbook 1. Then follow the path through the remaining books. I can’t guarantee enlightenment. But I know one thing, at the end of Volume 3 you won’t be where you were at the start of Volume 1!
