Build a Word Network CREATE

Create:

The foolishness of God is wiser than human wisdom, and the weakness of God is stronger than human strength. —1 Corinthians 1:25-26, NIV

Build a Word Network

Write the word TRUST on a piece of paper or in your journal. Take a moment and reflect on each letter. Write any words that begin with that letter that come to your mind. For example, the first letter may bring the following words to mind: truth, time, terror, etc. Do this for each letter. Then look at all the words you’ve written. Do you notice a pattern? What are they saying about how you view trust?

Develop Confidence in God PRAY

Pray:

The steadfast love of the LORD never ceases,  his mercies never come to an end; they are new  every morning; great is your faithfulness.—Lamentations 3:22-23, NRSV

Develop Confidence in God

God who holds me safe, help me to trust you completely. Remind me that you hold me in the palm of your hand, and there I am safe. (Now think of yourself resting in the palm of God’s hand. Offer your thanks and gratitude to God.)
