Reflections

Not long ago, I passed a milestone marking 20 years since I began keeping a spiritual journal. As I reread my first few entries, I was amazed I ever kept it up. But now you couldnít pay me to stop!

Here are some benefits I have received from journaling: From life experiences, I see that progress and failure are both part of the journey. Iím reminded of Godís grace when I read how He helped me to find a solution to a major problem. I gain insight from past struggles that help with issues I am currently facing. And, most important, journaling shows me how God has been faithfully working in my life.

Many of the psalms are like a spiritual journal. They often record how God has helped in times of testing. In Psalm 40, David writes: ďI waited patiently for the Lord; and He inclined to me, and heard my cry. He also brought me up out of a horrible pit, out of the miry clay, and set my feet upon a rock, and established my stepsĒ (vv.1-2). Later, David needed only to read that psalm to be reminded of Godís faithful deliverance.

Journaling may be useful to you too. It can help you see more clearly what God is teaching you on lifeís journey and cause you to reflect on Godís faithfulness.



For Further Thought
To begin a journal: Record your struggles, reflect on a
verse that is especially comforting or challenging, or
write a prayer of thankfulness for Godís faithfulness.

Reflecting on Godís faithfulness in the past
brings hope for the future.
