End of the Month Reflection

30. Look over this past month. When did you feel especially close to God? Were there any times when you felt like He was far away? How did you do with your Bible reading this month? Is your prayer life growing? Spend time thanking God for the ways He has helped you to grow, and asking Him to help you improve in those areas that you need improvement.

Service Idea

31. Spring is finally here! Have a spring clean up day in your neighborhood! Pick up trash on your street. Visit your local park (or parks) and pick up trash there. Plant flowers! While you are doing this, spend time thanking God for the beauty of His creation. Also, spend time praying for the people who live in your neighborhood and who play at your parks.
