To Trust Again:
A 30-Day Companion
Journal and Notes
To Trust Again: A 30-Day Companion is a journal to accompany your emotional and spiritual journey as you read through To Trust Again. Each day’s entry offers questions and brief comments to guide you in exploring your thoughts and feelings. Suitable for both private study and in group discussions.
When the most important relationship in your life is troubled, emotions tend to swirl about in fuzzy sensations of anger, pain, grief, outrage, loneliness, helplessness. These feelings need to be expressed, and there’s no better way to work through them than by journalling.
The profound Christian writer Flannery O’Connor said, “I write because I don’t know what I think until I read what I say.” From giants of the faith like Saint Flannery, to Amy Carmichael, C. S. Lewis, John Wesley, Jim Elliot…look into their lives and you will find they kept journals that have become a rich legacy for generations after them.
So we encourage you to journal through these pages as you read To Trust Again. Don’t write what you think you ought to think or feel. Write what you actually think and feel. Jesus didn’t come to seek and to save those who have it all together. He came for the lost. The Bread of Life is served to those who know they are starving, not to those who are full up with their own righteousness.
