Rest your soul through reflective journaling,
and worshiping the Creator who
longs for intimacy with each of us!
There are many ways to spend our time. Generally, they fall into “things for self” and “things for others”.
In Monday’s Journey Study, we learned how our motivation and heart posture for every action are critically important. While God doesn’t mind us doing things for ourselves, He wants us to serve others as a way to demonstrate true worship. Serving others displays the true heart of God. Take an inventory of how you spend your time. Is there a greater focus on self or others?
Check out the Neighbor Journey Theme to connect with real life stories of serving our neighbors. Be inspired and identify who you can serve this coming week.
Write down several ways you can serve them, pick one and then serve them with the heart of God and His generous love.
Take a few minutes to think about prayer. What does it mean to you? If you were to describe it to someone else, what words would you choose? Go ahead and try it out loud!
Do you get what you ask for? How important is it? Is it even necessary? Why or why not? Wrestle with these questions long enough to feel uncomfortable.
Like every other discipline that believers in Jesus take regular time to practice, Jesus modeled prayer for us. When we want to become exceptional at something, we study the professional, and when it comes to prayer, there is none better than Jesus Himself.
On Thursday, Rebecca suggested reading through John 17, one of the richest passages of Jesus’ prayers. Take time this weekend to read it through multiple times and make simple notes and questions that stick out to you as you read. As you read, ask the Lord to open your eyes to see and understand prayer better.
Ask Him to teach you how to pray just as He taught His disciples.
Prayer is central to our ministry as believers in Jesus as we carry eachother’s burdens and intercede for one another. Our team is honored to share the work of praying alongside you!
