How to Start the Day with Pen and Paper

IMG_0083

Today I want to walk you through a morning of journaling from the heart, to the heart of God. Are you ready?

You will need your journal, and a pen. You will need your Bible, and whatever reading plan you follow, or Scripture you are meditating on for today.

You may have a beverage, but usually my coffee grows cold as I set my pen to writing my heart to God.

When You Need a Spiritual Reboot (Empowering Truths to Set Captives Free)

As Christians we are encouraged to count our blessings. Most of secular society agrees that focusing on what we have instead of what we don’t is a safe bet toward a better mind set. Medical Research supports thankfulness and an attitude of gratitude has physical and mental health benefits.

But what do you do when you find yourself slowly sinking into a murky swamp of apathy because of the circumstances of your life, regardless of how hard you try to keep your head above water-spiritually, or otherwise?

The God of My Salvation

The God of My Salvation

All Things Are Possible

  
 
 
 
 
  
 You are worthy of my trust, my complete trust.
 You are worthy of my confidence, my complete confidence.
 I have nothing, nothing I can give;
 but I ask you today, this day, please help me to live.
  
 Not in my former ways,
  trusting no one-least of all my self
 Not in what I can’t or can do 
 based on poverty or wealth.
  
 Yet, in humble submission to what I can’t see
 for only you comprehend all I can be.
  
 I stumble too often on what others say
 Too often satisfied with having my own way
 Both of us know where these struggles lead
 so more of you, less of me is what I do plead.
  
 All things are possible with you I believe,
 beyond what my mind can fully conceive.
  
 You’ve never deceived your chosen ones,
 by grace and faithfulness, each battle’s been won-
 Let me continue this race, wholly trusting your Son,
 not in others nor self, but in what you have done,

 not in others, myself- only in what you have done.

All I Ever Learned in Life I Learned from Planner People

I wanted to let you know of the latest article published over at Carie Harling’s Paper Planning Magazine. When I wrote this article last year, it was a semi-tribute to the many contributors who have impacted my plannerly lifestyle. The list isn’t exclusive, I could have added a number of other names, and stories but for the sake of simplicity, I went with the milestones moments in my planner saturated journey.
