“[T]est everything; hold fast what is good. Abstain from every form of evil.”

(1 Thessalonians 5:21-22)

You could draw the changes you are making, or the new things happening within you, which may be helping you flourish or grow in your faith. Or you could reflect on the words and phrases that come to you when you imagine new beginnings or the “new things” God can make and do. Although this is an introspective verse, don’t be afraid to jump in as you journal; imperfection is still a part of worship and celebration.
