With journal in hand, take several slow deep breaths. Invite God into your heart to show you what he would like you to see.
What occupies most of your time and attention?
Where is your first love these days?
What relationships need attention?
What temptations knock you for a loop?
Where do you rationalize, deny, and blame?
Open your hands and release these things to God. Confess what you need. Ask him for his help. Thank him for his forgiveness. Read through Psalm 32.
