“Because God is a writer, it is only natural that we, created in His image, are writers also.”
Lynn D. Morrissey
I hear it often when the conversation turns to writing or journal keeping. “I wish I had more time to write.” or, “I’ve tried keeping a journal before but stopped.” Another common concern is privacy. Revealing your heart’s condition and committing it to paper can be a scary proposition. The possibility that someone else might see something that you did not want to share can hinder the beautiful freedom that journal keeping can offer. So, whether you have never kept a journal before or are an on again off again journaler, I want to offer a few tips to help you find the time to squeeze journaling in and to keep journaling on. I also want to urge you to find the journal keeping endeavor that suits this season of your life and allows the habit to continue for the long-term, so that the benefits and blessings will be experienced in time, thus reaffirming the commitment to write for the simple, personal joy experienced by the journal keeper.
I am at 5 Minutes for Faith today and would love for you to venture over there as I share a bit about journal keeping!
Please feel free to share and comment, and I will be sure to respond when I return from vacation! I am journaling my days away in Maine this week.
Happy Summer, Friends!
