Tonight I spent time with a group of girls talking about the Bible and prayer. At the end, I passed out a journal of sorts with some ideas inside about how to spend time with God via his word and prayer.
As I was passing out the journals I remembered my own “very first journal.” It was green, spiral bound, and I used to drag it up to the top floor of my dorm to write in it every night as a freshman in college. I still have it. I crack up when I read it because, I was truly, SO DUMB AND CHEESEY! The journal is totally about me and maybe .01% about God, but you have to start somewhere right?
Anyway, I have two tubs full of old journals now, but it’s been a few years since I’ve been faithful to write anything meaningful via pen and paper. The blog is a form of journaling for me, but I do miss the long letters to the Lord were I would pose my questions, listen, intercede for friends, chew on ideas from God’s word…
I wasn’t planning on taking one of my little journals for myself – after all – I am the leader, I am the “Nav Staff,” but I changed my mind.
I am re-entering the pen and paper world. Anyone care to join me?
