longs for intimacy with each of us!

This Week's Journeys

Psalm 16:8-11

8 I always let the Lord guide me. Because he is at my right hand, I will not be shaken. 9 Therefore my heart is glad and my whole being rejoices; my body also rests securely. 10 For you will not abandon me to Sheol; you will not allow your faithful one to see decay. 11 You reveal the path of life to me; in your presence is abundant joy; at your right hand are eternal pleasures.​

Prayer Journal Entry

Lord, this holiday season, I stop at Your feet. I want to take a breath of You and be restored, for Your mighty breath can turn my life back right-side up! Spirit, remove the feelings of comparison that grip my heart, especially at the holidays. I want to do everything perfectly and beautifully, often at the sake of my family.
Forgive me, God, and take that spirit of comparison away.

As I continue making long lists of all that needs done, nudge me to make room for time with You first. And if I forget Lord, as I all too often do, don’t just nudge me, send a boulder my way that would wake me up! I need more of You, Father, especially when I get busy and just focus on knocking stuff out. Keep my eyes heavenward as I wait in expectation to celebrate Your coming as a baby to this earth.

Worship Through Song

Journal Prompts

Think back to the last time you felt freedom from something. A lie, a fight, an addiction. The sweet release of the pent-up concern, angst, and dread all releasing in that moment of resolution. As you go forward and interact with sin in your life, allow all those emotions to come to the surface. And then revel in the sweet redemption offered by the Father as His arms are open wide to receive you!
This holiday season, as the hustle and bustle is upon us, take intentional time to just be still. Reflect on the experiences of the day, the groanings of your heart, and the needs of those closest to you.

Ask the Lord to lead you where He would have you rather than being tied to your to-do list and must haves.
Where has sin given birth to death in your life? It sounds extreme but can take the form of bitterness, jealousy, and comparison.

Pray today that Holy Spirit would clean out those spaces harboring sin and breathe life back into your heart!
