God thank you for providing a life that I never thought I would have. Thank you for allowing things to come together in your time. Even if I don’t fully understand the plans you have over my life, I accept whatever path you want me to take
Sometimes I feel like giving up and throwing in the towel on my dreams. I know that you will always provide all of my needs, even if my wants are pushed the side. I pray that you continue to show me your grace and mercy during difficult times. If I ever feel my hope slipping, I pray that you pick me back up. Let me pursue excellence while also seeking the righteousness of heaven.
I want to serve you with a whole heart. Please see my soul and know that I am at least trying not to conform to this world. I want to see how much you value me through your eyes. I want to value others how you value them. Do not let my heart harden by the uncertainty of life.
Your kingdom comes, your will be done on earth how it is done in heaven.
In Jesus Name,
God is our refuge and strength, a helper who is always found in times of trouble. Therefore we will not be afraid, though the earth trembles and the mountains topple into the depths of the seas, though its water roars and foams and the mountains quake with its turmoil.Selah
This blog started because I wanted to share my journals. I thought I would give a basic outline of my “personal books” in order inspire you all in your own journey.
I guess the first thing to cover is it’s purpose. It’s not always easy verbally expressing yourself or finding outlets. Writing doesn’t have to make perfect sense when it comes out. It’s more of organizing – then coming to a conclusion. Sometimes there is a half a page or 2, whatever it takes to process thoughts and make them complete.
I have 3 journals:
Prayer Journal. It’s easy to forget request and become frustrated. To make sure I know the status of my prayers – I write them out. Most of the time it allows me to see that God is listening and working things out day by day. My prayer journal helps keep my faith strong.
Thought Journal. This includes life events – joyful moments – insecurities. Writing out milestones in my life helps me keep track of time. You never know how slow (or fast) moments go until you check the dates again. Reading thoughts over also helps me think about what I can do next time something like this happens.
Career / Professional Journal. Having this journal helps me keep my materialistic objectives together. Goals & business wishlist are all in this book. When ever I get an idea it’s best to just write everything down.
My first journal was just for my thoughts. Once I started maturing in my career and prayers – the other 2 followed. You can start off with which ever one you would like.
I try to journal at least 4 times a week. One thing I need to work on is making it an everyday habit. For now I’m just taking baby steps.
