December Faithbooking Lesson

Here's the lesson from our crop on Saturday (just click on it to enlarge). With each monthly lesson, I offer journaling ideas that are light and fun with the option of taking it deeper - something for everyone. Those who attend receive the lesson, along with a photo of the page I created, and supplies to create their own. Since you don't have the benefit of seeing my page, I will explain what I did.

The topic was "delight"; a word we tend to see a bit more at Christmastime. It's pretty easy to think of people and things that evoke feelings of delight, but what about God? The Bible talks about God delighting in us - his children - and tells us to delight in Him as well.

A tough thing to wrap your brain around!

The bottom line is that if we want to take delight our Father's presence, we need to know Him. To do that, we need to spend time with Him. You can use this page in a deep way to create a page about that relationship. Or, you can lighten it up by focusing on another special relationship. You could also use this idea to create a two-page spread of every person and thing that brings you delight. Pages like these lend insight into your personality and desires - something very important to those who love you.

Delight yourself in the Lord and He will give you the desires of your heart. Psalm 37:4

I sent an email out to all of the Faithbooking ladies, but in case you missed it - there was an error on the handout you received on Saturday. If you'd like another copy, just shoot me an email!
