A for Authentic

In our Living Your Word of the Year group we are using a fortnightly (bi-weekly) A-Z challenge throughout the year to help us focus on our word and live it out.

Because of the way I have made my journal it's a case of going with the flow of what background the pages have when I turn to them.
The first page had lovely lines to write on.  To connect the two pages I drew circles on the left hand page to echo the ones on the right.  I used an alphabet sticker for the A.

I have chosen Authentic for my A word.

I started my study by listen to this podcast on Authenticity - one of my church's culture word.

Through that I found these verses which I thought would be good to write out.

Therefore, there is now no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus, because through Christ Jesus the law of the Spirit who gives life has set you free from the law of sin and death.  Romans 8:1-2

So keep your thoughts continually fixed on all that is authentic and real, honorable and admirable, beautiful and respectful, pure and holy, merciful and kind. And fasten your thoughts on every glorious work of God, praising him always. Philippians 4:8 (TPT)

But by the grace of God I am what I am, and his grace to me was not without effect.  1 Cor. 15:10

As I listened to the podcast I also wrote down words that stood out particularly in terms of the definition of authentic.  I wrote these words into the circles.

My finished page:

Thank you for joining me today.

Join Our Inspirational Facebook Group: Living Your Word of the Year
Join Mary Brack, Valerie Sjodin and I in our Facebook group where we are giving participants the opportunity to live out an A-Z of their own word throughout 2019.  Mary explains what we are doing in her blog post.  We don't like a lot of rules, so we will have suggestions and options to spark creativity, and to help in recording and exploring our word’s meaning in visual and fun ways. We will each blog about our experiences and our art.
