Reflecting on Looking Forward

Saturday is a day to reflect on all that God has been speaking to you this week, and how it will affect your life going forward.

From those of us at Tree Church Daily, we hope that you have had an amazing week in your time with God. We pray that you were challenged and encouraged by God’s word and His presence in your daily life.

Today, we want you to do something simple, yet important. We want you to take time to write in a notebook, journal, or record a voice memo answering the prompts below. This does not need to be profound, poetic, or polished. It is just a record for you to visit later to see and remember all that God is doing in your life. Journaling is a way to remind you of what God is speaking to you. Speaking something out loud or writing it down makes our thoughts tangible, and holds us accountable. If God has challenged you, or called you to do something specific this past week, making it tangible makes it real. So don’t skip today…today is about faith building, and that is what we pray happens for you.

Before you get started, let’s pray together:

God, I am so thankful that I am able to turn to You for every single thing I need. When I need comfort, joy, understanding, peace, and so much more, You are the only one who can provide. I pray that as I take this time to reflect, Your Spirit will fill me and speak to my heart. Allow this time to not only glorify You and all You are doing in my life, but also to grow my faith. I love You, Lord. Amen.

Here are today’s prompts for you to process through in your written or voice journal:

First, focus on God’s promises to you. Sometimes there can be fear associated with the future. Take some time to process through God's promises to you, and how they can give you peace as you look towards the next steps He is calling you to.

Second, focus on your current reality. God wants to be included in every aspect of your life. Throughout your time with God this week, have you included Him in all things, big and small?

Lastly, focus on a step where God challenged you. If you are facing any life decisions right now, take time to  include God and ask Him to guide you and give you wisdom for what is next.
