If you are like most people, you are probably asking is what the heck is a Chazown? You might even be asking why should I care? Well, my goal is to help you understand exactly what Chazown is, and why you should care about discovering and living your Chazown.
I recently learned about Chazown from Craig Groeschel’s book, Chazown: Define Your Vision. Pursue Your Passion. Live Your Life on Purpose. For those of you who don’t know Craig, he is the founding and senior pastor of LifeChurch.tv. You can learn more about Craig and lifeChurch.tv here.
Everyone ends up somewhere. Few end up somewhere on purpose.”- Craig Groeschel
I decided to share Chazown and The Chazown Experience with you today because it fits very closely with why this blog exists. I am sure that if you experience The Chazown Experience, it will change your life
What is Chazown?
Chazown (pronounced khaw-ZONE) comes from Hebrew, and means a dream, revelation, or vision. You were born with your own Chazown. God has a unique plan or vision for your life, but do you know what it is? Do you believe that the God of the universe has a plan and vision for your life that will bring you more happiness, joy, and peace than you can ever imagine?
Most of us stumble through life just existing, hoping tomorrow will be better than today. But you and I were made for so much more! “Before you were born, God knew you. He knew what He wanted your life to be like. He had a purpose in mind for you, even before you came to be.”
Craig lays out a way of finding that vision and acting on it that revolves around three things:
- Your core values
- Your spiritual gifts
- Your experiences
His book will lead you through a step-by-step process to help you focus and clarify these three things. In addition to the book, Craig has developed the Chazown Experience to help you discover you Chazown.
What is the Chazown Experience?
The Chazown Experience is about discovering God’s vision and purpose for your life, and designing a plan of action that will help you achieve that purpose. It is a FREE interactive on-line experience. Each online module has tests and activities to help you discover your Chazown.
Key features of The Chazown Experience include:
Your Past, Present, Future And Purpose
Six interactive segments guide you through several self-paced exercises. These exercises are designed to help you understand God’s plan for your life, and develop realistic goals that will help you to live your Chazown.
Create a Personal Timeline
These segments guide you through the process of outlining your life story, or what Craig refers to as your personal timeline. This is a big-picture overview of the people, events, and circumstances that have shaped your life. Examining these themes from your life will help you understand how God has worked out your Chazown up until now.
An Action Plan with Support
The result of The Chazown Experience is a 100-Day Plan that will help you pursue God’s Chazown for your life. The Chazown Experience also provides you with the tools that you need to support you on your journey.
I am starting my Chazown Experience and my 100-Day Plan today. Will you join me on this journey? Will you keep us up-to-date on what God is doing in your life?
