- Make Praise a Habit
Let praise become as much of a habit as everything else you do without thinking! When you do you will be infused with joy because you enter His gates through praise.
Doodle the word “Praise” and then write out “Let everything that breathes praise the Lord, hallelujah!” circling around the word. Recite this phrase throughout the day giving all praises to our Heavenly Father
- Count Your Blessings
(God and Abram) Genesis 15:5 – 6: He took him outside and said, “Look up at the sky and count the stars—if indeed you can count them.” Then he said to him, “So shall your offspring be.” Abram believed the Lord, and he credited it to him as righteousness.
Take some quiet time tonight outside and look up at the stars. Reflect on your blessings. Write a thank you note to God for your many blessings.
- Simple Words
Name 5 blessings from this past week using just one word. Reflect on these 5 blessings today.
- God is Trustworthy
God is trustworthy. He is the one we can count on to always have our best interests at heart. He knows better than we do what we need and when. Write out Psalm 111 then read allowed to yourself throughout the day.
- Not My Will but Yours
“Jesus reveals the Nature of the God to whom he prays in the content of his prayer.”
Take some time on your knees as Jesus did in the Garden of Gethsemane and pray the Lord’s Prayer in Matthew 6:9-13
- What is My Cup?
What aspects of your life makes it difficult for you to trust God? (Anything you struggle with)
Draw a picture of a cup with the struggle (word) or a picture of the struggle pouring out of the cup. Reflect on the picture and ask God to help put your full trust in Him as you release this struggle to Him.
- Accept His Invitation
Read Romans 8:28 – Draw out any image that comes to mind after reading this verse or rewrite the scripture verse in your own words. Meditate on this verse throughout the day.
