Just a Sentence Or Two a Day

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:

  1. Don’t enjoy writing. You can just write a few important things from the day and be done.
  2. 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? 





Author profile

I am 19 years old. I would describe myself as a spunky and happy person. I love to read, draw, play the piano, and be outside. I love music, especially good ole classic rock. You can't go wrong with a saxophone and guitar solo in one song (i am looking at you Pink Floyd).

    This was a great reminder that it really IS the little things that count! I love writing, but don’t allow myself the time to do it regularly. I also don’t have a stellar memory, so looking back on even just a thought or two brings the memories flooding back and makes me happy to have recorded something–even if it’s just a line or two. Thanks!
