Unraveled Study Journal

Art, Reflections, & Prompts, for 12 Stories of Unraveling

[This resource is one of many in our Unraveled Series Bundle]


What happens when our world falls apart? How do we press onward when our tightly-knit plans unravel into loose threads? What do we become when our identity—or the path we're on—comes undone? What if all of this is not the end we fear it will be? In our unraveling, sometimes life surprises us with unexpected joy, love, and hope—with a new beginning we couldn’t have imagined. Sometimes we need God to unravel us, for we long to be changed. This study journal explores 12 stories of unraveled shame, identity, fear, grief, dreams, and expectations.

We invite you to complete this journal at the pace and order that suits you. You may wish to ponder the reflections and prompts individually or with others. We have designed this journal so that it might be used as a personal devotional or as the curriculum for a group study series.

For each of the 12 stories of unraveling, we include:

  • Original visual art inspired by the text

  • An artist statement reflecting on how the scripture inspired the art

  • Prompts for visual meditation to engage the art

  • Prompts for individual or group reflection on the scripture

  • A prompt for journaling in response to the scripture

  • A short closing prayer
