We all want to live our best life. Seek Well is a movement that helps you slow down and listen to Jesus, so that He can give you a life that is free and light.
Fighting for Joy
In this season, it is so easy to let negativity control our life. We are locked inside, we miss our friends and family and it seems as though there is no end to this crisis. And yet, we have a choice. We can choose life or we can choose something less. It is in this moment that we must fight for joy.
We are working up something extra special for you next week. In the meantime, join us for this bonus week and fight with us for joy!
Fighting for Joy - Day 5
Thanks for joining us on this journey! Follow along by using our guide called "How to Listen" (left).
Our rhythm is simple. First, settle in. Then invite Jesus into the moment through a listening prayer. Here's an example:
"Jesus, I’m here. I invite you to speak to me; clearly and loudly. Silence the other voices that are competing for my attention. Eliminate the distractions and noise in my life so that in this moment I can clearly hear your voice. Speak Lord, I’m listening.”
Next, read this short passage of scripture, slowly. You may even want to read it 3 or 4 times.
John 20:19-20 NLT
"That Sunday evening the disciples were meeting behind locked doors because they were afraid of the Jewish leaders. Suddenly, Jesus was standing there among them! “Peace be with you,” he said. As he spoke, he showed them the wounds in his hands and his side. They were filled with joy when they saw the Lord!"
Take 2 minutes in silence. Thanks Jesus for his sacrifice. Then ask Jesus to speak.
Question for today:
- Jesus, where or how do you want me to embrace your peace in my life?
Then, simply listen.
When you are ready, take a few minutes to process your experience by journaling.
