Look again

Get comfy and everyone takes it in turn to hold their thumbs out and wiggle them up or down to express how they are and how their week has been. Allow everyone to share why. Perhaps share what God has been doing in your life this week. Why not take a moment to pray about what comes up?

  • Is there anything in your life right now where it’s difficult to see a way ahead? 

  • Why do you think the Bible tells us to walk by ‘faith’ and not by sight?   

  • If Jesus were sitting with you right now in person, what would He say about it?  

Find a space with your cushion somewhere, bring your journal or paper and pen with you. 

Play this worship music video and spend some time with God, write out or draw out the thing that is on your mind or heart, telling God what’s bothering you or how you see it. Then leave some space and quiet and ask God to speak to you. Begin to write or draw again and let it just flow, see what comes out and what God might be showing you.   

Why not pick one of the situations that was shared today as a family to pray for it and ask God as a family to speak to you for the person.
