Goals + Scripture + Topics
Goal for “Week 3: Joyful Heart”-
Pray for God to reveal an area of your life, a relationship, or perspective in which you've hardened your heart. Is that a person, conflict, situation that's distracting, hurting, or holding you back? Choose forgiveness. Confront the sin (if needed) and invite Jesus into the situation and wait. Be faithful.
Scripture Focus for the week: Reading about David- a man after God’s own heart- is a great place to start. 1 Samuel and Psalms. 1 Corinthians 13 is wonderful to pray through as well.
Topics to consider this week: repentance, trust/faith, forgiveness, love/relationships/marriage, grief, trust, righteousness, a clean heart
Day 1- Devotion
I am cheating a little bit. I went ahead and wrote a blog post about the content God laid on my heart today. I had a really, really hard time getting all of my thoughts organized and articulated (which is very unlike me). But, I think it’s because it was really important to say. It’s still not a long read, but it is hefty in content. Click HERE to read: “I love Jesus, but I cuss a little…”
