  1. I feel God magnifying my soul most often in worship – usually when singing a song & when the Holy Spirit moves within me. I also feel it when a chance opportunity happens in which I can help someone or witness to someone.

  2. I feel God magnifying my soul when I am a participant in God’s acts of transformation of this world into God’s commonwealth. Even, and maybe especially, when my part is done at the behest of others’ leadership.

  3. My soul magnifies the Lord when I spend time reflecting on the many people that God has put on my path as I seek to do his will. Whenever I try something new, and I’m out of my comfort zone, I always find a special person that I can watch and learn from. I feel that these are an affirmation from God that I’m on the right path.
