“He lifted me out of the pit of despair, out of the mud and the more. He set my feet on solid ground & steadied me as I walked along.” Psalm 40:2
I have been journaling for almost 30 years. Many times they are my prayers to God, (I love talking to the Lord), other times I am chronicling what is happening in my life, be it spiritual or just in my day-to-day walk. Sometimes my tears are staining the pages as I experience the loss of someone special or the excitement of the “new” in my life.
What I see over and over is how God has “lifted me up” & “steadied me”. I’m reminded of God’s grace through the many pages. It’s so important to see scriptures as part of our spiritual journey. There are times when I go back and read some of the entries and see how faithfully God has been working in my life.
Consider taking on my challenge to begin journaling so you can look back and see how much God loves you and cares about what you do. Begin writing your love letters to God.
“The Lord hears His people when they call to him for help. He rescues them from all their troubles.” Psalm 34:17 NLT
