In The Beginning: Journaling through John Chapter 1

IMG_1015

 

Welcome to our first week of Journaling through the Book of John: A Journey for Lent and Beyond ! The purpose of this journey is to linger longer in the presence of the Lord and not create a sprint through the Bible. We don’t want to minimize our relationship with the One who created everything … with a capital E – Everything – to a bullet on our task list, do we? When I look around at the state of the world today, I dare say many people have. I go further and say, I am in danger of doing this daily! When God becomes a bullet on our list of things to do, friend, I fear He has been removed from the place He desires in our hearts and relegated to an unrecognizable blur in our days.

A poetic offering from my recent weekend in New Hampshire.

If you want to know more about my weekend retreat here, or would like me to write about it in more detail, or do a video coffee chat- I would love too. Leave a comment below.

Meanwhile, I pray this poem I wrote Saturday morning, gives you a glimpse into the beauty I experienced there.

Note: I did share two of my poems on the Saturday evening Talent Show…to keep my fear of public speaking at bay. Onward- for His glory! The poems I shared at the Women’s Retreat (April 28th- 30th) can be read when you click on the linked titles here: Luminary and Anyway .

See my Local Events page for the next public Poetry Reading I will be doing.

Journaling MY Journey [with Jesus]: A Never-ending Story

Life is a never-ending exploration of the mind, the spirit and the soul. ~Monique Moore

Dear friends, although I was very eager to write to you about the salvation we share, I felt compelled to write and urge you to contend for the faith that was once for all entrusted to God’s holy people. Jude 1:3

Forty Days ago we started a journey and now we come to the end…or do we? I wrapped up the week with Jude and one chapter of sobering reality is written there. I found myself digging into my Matthew Henry Commentary, something I rarely do. One thing I try to do is compare scripture with scripture, but a decent commentary can be a help on occasion. It can also be a hinderance if one is not careful. See, God’s Word is a perfect illuminator of God’s Word. I have wrestled long and hard with certain passages of Scripture. I believe it was and is God’s will that I do so. There are reasons specific passages leave us wondering. The reason being, ultimately, it should lead us smack dab into His presence.

Journaling through the Book of James (JYJWJ)

WP_20150609_08_30_35_Pro

Dear Friend,

     I am writing to you from the path, and checking in to see how you are doing. I hope this letter finds you well. I hope you have continued on the journey we began in May.  I have been camped out since the last time we touched base in the Book of James, and I have to tell you it is a great place for we who believe to camp. I have been journaling and praying my way through the five power packed chapters and I believe you might benefit by doing the same. Oh, and if you need an energy bar to get you going along the path with a bit more zip, check out this audio version of James via Bible Gateway as read by Max Mclean. So many options and ways to study, reflect and dig deeper into Scripture these days. Of course, I always prefer to have my hard copy of the Bible (or twenty!) but, I often will use the online options for quick searches for parallel verses, and references, mostly when I write but occasionally when I am reading.
