Admittedly, I have fallen way behind on my advent study ... but still aim to get as much of it done as possible. I have been so busy this Christmas season ... but also enjoying every minute if it ... and also enjoying every moment I spend with Christ. But I know from past studies that I am the type that digs deep and it takes me 2-3 days to process when I do this. And the time I have invested in this study is so worth it!
The day 7 lesson is about control ... what we let God control ... what we don't give over to Him. I haven't thought about what I do or don't let God control for a while. I had to make a conscious effort every day when I first started walking with Him. I think my focus now is more on obedience ... rather than letting fear set in by thinking about control I am relinquishing. There are times He asks me to do things that frighten me ... but my desire to be obedient and my trust in Him has been outweighing the fear, so I take that as a sign of progress :)
I did a pretty simple journal page for this one. I made a gelli print of large snowflake cut-out and I doodled a scripture from my lesson.
