What are you holding on to?

  • Read – James 1:17,5
  • Isaiah 49:13-16
  • Philippians 4:19

Trace your hands (right and left) on two separate pages in your journal.  On the first page write:  “What am I holding on to?”  Answer your question in the hand print.  On the other page write:  “What I am letting go…”  Write your answer in the other hand print.


Choose to hold on to God’s character, His promises, and your faith…

(With every post, invent your own challenge and try to add a little personal creative touch.  These are just suggestions, make them your own!  If a word from a verse strikes you, do a word study or look up other verses with that same word.  If a praise song comes to mind, listen to it and write out the lines that resonate with you.  Add a little beauty:  glitter and glue, ribbon, sand,… whatever.  I’m always adding random things that catch my eye to my journal:  taping bits of fresh cut grass, pressed flowers, business cards, pretty napkins, or making sketches in the margin, anything that will remind me of where I was and what I was thinking when I was writing, small hints to my memory to take me back later to the moment.)
