I Am Shame-Free (The Victory of Calvary)

 

We must never stop looking to Jesus. He is the leader of our faith, and he is the one who makes our faith complete. He suffered death on a cross. But he accepted the shame of the cross as if it were nothing because of the joy he could see waiting for him. And now he is sitting at the right side of God’s throne. Think about Jesus. He patiently endured the angry insults that sinful people were shouting at him. Think about him so that you won’t get discouraged and stop trying. (Easy-to-Read Version) *ERV @BibleGateway

How The Bullet Journal Method Is Changing The Way I Journal and Plan My Days

Bullet Journal is for those who feel there are few platforms as powerful as the blank page. ~Ryder Carroll

 

The first time I heard the words bullet and journal together, I wondered what the heck a bullet journal might include? Fortunately those communicating a love for this style of journaling did not look like potential serial killers, so I mentally filed away the information for future exploration.

Interestingly, had I  been using the Bujo (short for Bullet Journaling ) method at the time, I could  have made a quick “bullet” in my notebook with a note for further exploration. More importantly I could have found that note when I decided to act upon that action. Which brings me one of my favorite aspects of the Bullet Journal- the hope of ever finding anything again in my rambling journaling entries…in a timely manner.

Devil in the Cafe (Poet and Painter Collaboration)

Devil in the Cafe

Painting by Marisol McKee

 

January fourth, I packed up my bag, journals, pens and Tablet, headed to a local coffee shop determined to focus and write…preferably simultaneously.  Snow flurries fell outside as I sipped my hot brewed inspiration anticipating a multitude of epiphanies. I was hoping to muster up at least a few sentences.

Unfortunately, a gentleman set himself up beside me with his laptop, and the minute he plugged in, somehow, my own internet connection was impacted. It was mysterious, odd and a tad bit frustrating. Naturally, I turned to poetry. Because what’s a girl to do when the devil shows up at the coffee shop. But, that wasn’t the end of the story… More

Seated in the Heavenlies (Lent 2016)

Although this may be a poem, it was also straight from my journal this morning. I want to encourage you to make time for your spiritual self to emerge by journaling your heart and prayers on  your own journal pages. I have been feeling dry spiritually the past week…so for me this writing reflects a bit intimacy with God that has been lacking.

I will include it in my Journaling Series- as it a true reflection of my journaling journey. I pray it sparks in you the courage (if you need it) to be raw and real in your spiritual journey, whatever you believe and whatever your heart towards God at this moment.

If these words inspire, encourage or spark a response in you I’d love if  you share your thoughts right here in the comments- but even more importantly, in your own journal- as you so feel led.

As always, thanks for joining me for this journey. Here is this morning’s offering.
