Welcome to Week 4!
We're so glad you're going to be joining us at the Summit! We've prepared this guided practice of spiritual disciplines to help you focus your heart and mind on God.
After reading the passage of scripture...
Get a piece of paper and a pencil, and get prepared to write an old-fashioned, handwritten letter! Imagine you are God, writing a letter to God’s child (that’s you!), and the content of the letter is Psalm 139. Rewrite Psalm 139 as a letter to you from God. When you finish rewriting the entire letter, read it to yourself.
Answer the following questions. If it's helpful to you, use a journal and keep track of thoughts, ideas, or images that come to your mind as you answer these questions.
- When you turned the Psalm into a letter and read it to yourself, was it hard to image that God is as crazy about you as the Psalm indicates?
- What does this passage teach us about humanity, and God’s artistry in creating every individual?
- Think about your favorite art form – Do you love dancing, singing, acting, painting, drawing, photography, etc.? If you’re not an artist, have you ever taken time to watch an artist creating his or her artwork? Think about the time, energy, passion, and love invested in a piece of art. What does this tell you about our Creator, the greatest artist of all, God?
