Each worksheet so far has ended with “Planning for joy.”  As you look through them, what planning and action steps stick out to you as the most effective ways for you to increase your joy this quarter?

 

 

 

If you have additional time, you could work through some of these questions (that we originally intended for a retreat setting)…

Identifying the lies

Most powerful messages from inside me about resources:

  • __________________________________________________________________
  • __________________________________________________________________
  • __________________________________________________________________

 

Most powerful messages from outside me about resources:

  • __________________________________________________________________
  • __________________________________________________________________

How do they compare with scripture?  Which of these messages I hear are lies or half-truths?

Two investment portfolios

How can I be at least as intentional about my heavenly investment portfolio as I am about my earthly portfolio?

 

 

Would you take a moment and write a prayer to the Lord to close the weekend?  How do you want to surrender your resources to Him afresh?

“Dear Lord,_________________________________________________________________

__________________________________________________________________________

__________________________________________________________________________

__________________________________________________________________________

__________________________________________________________________________

__________________________________________________________________________”

 

With others

What will you share with your spouse about what the Lord impressed on you from the weekend?

Praying with a brother

Find a brother or two to finish the formal part of our time together like this:

 

  1. Share with each other one thing that has stood out to you or impacted you from our time together.  It could even be about a question that remains or perhaps an action step you want accountability for.
  2. Then take a moment and pray together over these things.
