In an instant, our Lord offers the world an alternative direction to follow.

Do you write a daily journal?  This inspiring thought comes from my journal, and much of what is written in my journal comes from reading and commenting on other bloggers’ posts.  Thanks to many of you for adding so much to my journal.

  1. Yes, I do, but sometimes I forget to write in it. Still, it’s interesting to look back later and read it. Sometimes my feelings on a subject have changed; sometimes they’ve been confirmed; sometimes it’s good for a chuckle; sometimes a little tear. But that’s life.

    • Love this response πŸ™‚ It’s generally pretty fun to look back on our old journals and think “Bless my heart – I was so innocent/naive/stupid back then” or to look back and see how much we’ve grown and changed or the things that have stayed the same throughout. I love that you still have your journals, even if you do forget to write in them πŸ™‚

    • Anneli, thanks for sharing. My journal is filled with tidbits from devotions and other blogs that I read. Some of these even prepare thoughts for later use in some of my other writing. I write each entry longhand as a thought or idea shows up, and later I transfer it to a Word document.

  2. I had journals in many, MANY notebooks throughout my entire life…until I watched a movie in 2009 called “Julia and Julia” where a woman started a cooking blog in honour of her favourite French chef. I started my own blog that day on “blogger” and have never looked back. My journals are my online blogs. I’m so thankful for your kind comments on my “journal entries” and am interested to know if you still journal the “old fashioned way” with pen and paper or do you do everything online too?

  3. Mankind will always fall short of our expectations, but God will always take up the slack. I like how you express that. I do a daily journal of sorts on my blog. I used to keep a written one as well, but it got too hard to do both. I can look back and see growth as well as periods of slump and frustration. God is still working on me and for that I am always grateful!
