Quiet Time: Journal Challenge
To be honest, I allowed other things and situations to distract me from my relationship with Christ. I was doubtful concerning certain decisions I made and I worried about the unknown concerning my job, my place of residence, and other life aspects. While I continued to read my Bible and pray daily, I failed to pray about these situations and tried to figure it all out on my own. So now I’m in the process of rekindling my relationship with Him.
Thus, I made a commitment to journal my communication with God DAILY…CONSISTENTLY, during my quiet time. I got this idea from a blog post written by Heather Lindsey a few years ago and decided to try it for myself.
As I take on this journal challenge, I will:
- Thank Him for all He’s done for me and will continue to do for me.
- Talk to Him about my day and what’s been on my mind.
- Ask Him for the wisdom and knowledge to gain understanding of His word.
- Pour my heart out to Him.
- Praise His name.
This is a way for me to bring every problem, challenge, situation, and praise to Him…to put God first. There will come a time where I won’t need to journal anymore because prioritizing God before any and all aspects within my life will come naturally to me. But I have to discipline myself first before I can reach that far. Until then, will you join me on this challenge?
