I've never been a journaler. I would start but then stop. My friend Sue, she's really 'my sista' bought me a journal A LONG time ago, I would start and stop, and I've always kind of used my blog as my journal, HOWEVER, it has been on my heart to not only journal on my blog but to journal in a book.
I know the importance of journaling, I make sure my girls ALWAYS have one so they can record their thoughts, feelings, worship, drawing. I actually have a picture that one of them made from their journal in my kitchen (if you haven't noticed, my kitchen is where the stuff I love goes). I love this journal because it has a place to record daily stuff like how you feel, what the weather is like, who is on your heart, different stuff, and on the back page it is blank so you can write if you wish.
My plan is to record what I'm reading, how it is speaking to me. I'm super thankful for this journal that was waiting for just the 'write' time to write down my feelings, what God is saying to me, I am excited to grow in this process.
What is on your heart that you need to begin to do to take that first step?
10 Create in me a pure heart, O God,
and renew a steadfast spirit within me. 11 Do not cast me from your presence or take your Holy Spirit from me. 12 Restore to me the joy of your salvation and grant me a willing spirit, to sustain me.
