Reading Romans in Reverse and Redirection by God

WP_20150509_07_18_44_Pro

Here we are at the start of a fresh new week. We are journaling our journey with Jesus and this is a check in point along the path. How goes your journey? Let’s sit for a moment, take a break and check in.

Let’s think about some of the things we are hoping to accomplish on our endeavor. It’s important to remind ourselves of why we are doing what we aare doing, especially for those moments when we lose sight of our goal which is increasing our intimacy with Jesus, NOT checking another To Do off our list! So as a reminder, perhaps today, or sometimes this week, it would behhove us to write out our purpose for joining on the journey at all! Here are some of the possibilities, listed also on the Main Page:  Develop a consistent journaling habit which inspires all you do;  Discover the benefits of journaling as communication with the Lord;  Grow in intimacy in our personal  relationship with Jesus;  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; and lastly this: strengthen our faith and confidence in God- as we offer our words to Him, and as we learn to sit quietly before Him, listening, available. This sums up well the ways: “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 will share a bit about my week of Journaling my own journey with Jesus, and hopefully that will encourage you along your own journey. I have made a page where all the posts for Journaling Your Journey [with Jesus] can be found. When you hover over the JYJWJ which shows while hovering the mouse over Journaling, the Post page will appear. Here it is right here for easy access if you are new to the journey OR just want a quick peek now. And here: All Posts for Journaling Your Journey [with Jesus]

Meanwhile about last week…

All of my Big is God (RJD December 2014)

I am doing something I do not normally do here for the Random Journal Day Link up, sharing the morning page from my journal today. Usually I dig out something from the archives. Something not as fresh from the pen, and  heart. But this morning as I enjoyed my usual journal/quiet time, the words came forth as they often do…and it so reflected my writing process, I knew I would share the poem, but I thought…”Why not?” Why not share it for RJD? So here you have fresh from my pen and heart, my God magnified. I pray this poem blesses you. I thank God for meeting me on the pages of my journal, each day on this journey. He is faithful. He gives abundantly and satisfies my soul, daily. All praise, glory and honor to Him who sits on the throne.

Prayer is not a business transaction. We do not give something to get something in return. It is relational intimacy. In prayer, at our point of greatest need, we can encounter God and receive His presence. ~ James Banks

The past couple of weeks have been challenging around this here neck of the woods…er, um…seashore. This little fish here has struggled to swim in some big, wide, previously undiscovered, very scary open water.  Isn’t it just like the enemy to come stealthily into our terrain and try to steal away our new  beautiful, God-given territory?
