This is a simple journaling worship element. The theme is how we are all chosen by God. I know that in my own life there have been many times where I haven’t felt chosen, so it is always amazing to think that the God of the universe chooses me. The text is included below or you can download the .pdf from the link.
How It Works:
Play some soft music and pass out the sheets and pens to the participants. Be sure to give them ample time to write.
For by him all things were created: things in heaven and on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones or powers or rulers or authorities; all things were created by him and for him.
You are a creation of God. The infinitely creative creator crafted you by His own hand. He created you for a purpose. The great God of the Universe knows your name and He has chosen you to follow Him. You were created by Him and for Him.
Right now we are going to spend some time expressing our thanks to God for choosing us. In this time be honest with God. If you don’t feel chosen tell Him that. Then ask Him to show you that you have been picked. If you have questions or doubts then write those here too.
Use the space on the back of this sheet to create a psalm of thanksgiving. Let your psalm be an honest picture of your thanks and your life at this moment. It can be something as simple as just a few words or as complicated as a poem. You can craft a paragraph or take time and draw your thanks. Simply use the space on the back to communicate with God.
