Journaling God’s Work through His Word | Good Friday
Written By Christ Community Staff
Journaling is a helpful discipline to reflect and clarify your own processing of God’s Word. Go back to the passage from Sunday, and take 10 minutes today to process how God’s Word has become flesh in you.
As we enter Good Friday, we gather and reflect upon the crucifixion of King Jesus. Take time to journal what you heard, saw, read, and felt.
Here are a few journaling prompts to stir deeper reflection:
- When do you feel most distant from God?
- Write a prayer of surrender to God.
- Who do you need to forgive?
- Write a letter of forgiveness to an enemy.
