A stronghold is a place of security. What would it look like if the Lord was your security in life?

Believing God is an important part of being his child. Write about things you struggle to believe about God. Be honest.

Invite the Holy Spirit. Ask him to help you to express the way you feel about yourself.
In your journal, List out the positive and negative things you feel about yourself. Draw a picture of your inner world.
Reflecting on what you put down, is your perception of yourself, positive, negative, or both?
How can negative perceptions change the way you see yourself?
Day 5: Journal Pg. 32
What if I told you that the family story and your inheritance are explained in the Bible. Don't leave your inheritance sitting on the shelf. Do the work to understand the things you have access to as part of the family of God.
Invite Holy Spirit. Ask Him to give you the ability to picture yourself as God's daughter. Remember God is the most powerful person that exists.
What would change about the way you see yourself, if you believed you were part of the family of God?
Why is it important to understand what you inherit as God's daughter? What happens if you don't know about something you inherit?
