There’s a saying about the little things in life. It’s the little things, so the saying goes that can end up being the big things. This can be true in relationships, careers, and attitudes. A teensy mouse can terrify a huge elephant, and so the story goes, one young man with the proper vision took down a giant who had defied armies. The unnoticed dripping faucet by day rings out like a maddening racket in the quietness of night, when one longs for quiet and sleep. It’s the little things we are thankful for, we rejoice in and the little things heaped upon us that can undo us in one moment.

It’s no wonder we find ourselves feeling overwhelmed when we deal with bits of discouragement daily. Who can avoid all negativity? It is impossible….

Your Journaling Journey with Jesus begins May 4th (FLASH Giveaway)

Question: Have you been longing to journal but been having mixed results from your efforts?

Question: Do you wish you were more focused when you pray?

Question: Would you like to experience deeper intimacy with Jesus?

Question: Do you wish you knew what to write about that didn’t seem like meaningless rambling?

Question: Do you ever desire to sort out the things that lurk beneath the surface of your faith life; those big questions that resurface in the long watches of the night?

Well, I believe if you commit and join in this journaling journey you will:

1. Develop a consistent journaling habit which inspires all you do.

2. Discover the benefits of journaling as communication with the Lord.

3. Grow in intimacy in your relationship with Jesus.

4. Engage scripture, and scriptural writings- as we seek transparency before the Lord on the pages of our journals, connecting with our own unique voices and God’s affirming presence.

5. Strengthen your faith and confidence in God- as we offer our words to Him, and as we learn to sit quietly before Him, listening, available. We will practice stillness. We will meditate on His truth. We will seek to grow in the grace and knowledge of our Lord and Savior by basking in His loving presence with pen and paper.

I believe friends, you will be blessed as you explore your own Emmaus Road, walking with our Savior, journaling the journey and all that Jesus reveals to you along the way.

So, gather your pen and paper…be ready for whatever!

Subscribe to receive the posts directly in your inbox. To kick off this Journaling Journey I am giving away a Journal and my favorite Journaling pen. Ends Monday 12 AM.  This is a FLASH giveaway to jump-start your writing adventure!
