I will admit that, even though I have a journal, I don’t write in it as often as I would like. I am sure most of us feel this way sometimes.
Before the New Year began, I chose a cute planner that had the calendar for each month and pages with a bit of space to write appointments and what not for each day. I used that space to write a sentence or two about my day.
I find this has been pretty easy. I sometimes forget a day and sometimes I write quite a bit. On somedays when I want to write more, I write more in my journal. I also want to try to include how I have seen the Lord’s hand in a day.
I recommend this to those who:
- Don’t enjoy writing. You can just write a few important things from the day and be done.
- Don’t have much time. This is pretty quick. You could even do this on your phone if you wish.
Keeping a journal is really awesome. If you write down spiritual experiences, you can look back and remember those tender mercies. This can help us when we are having a hard day (or week, month, or year). Sometimes writing can be time consuming, but it is so worth it in the end.
Why do you write in a journal?
