God, make a fresh start in me,
    shape a Genesis week from the chaos of my life.

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.

Rescued From The Curse By His Grace Moment by Moment

Standing at the kitchen counter, sleep still permeating my eyes I feel for the coffee pot, prepare the pot, as I have done so many mornings. I squint adjusting to the light well aware I’m being stalked by the morning pet parade. Three sets of eyes are staring up at me. I pour dry food into the two cat bowls, grab the dog’s leash from the coat rack and head to the door with a prancing Reindeer. Once we are out into February’s chilly morning darkness and at the canine appointed place of business, I stare up at the dark blue sky over us. I gaze at the stars. Standing in the starlight, surrounded by winter’s stillness I’m startled awake as I take inventory of my heart.

Ask, Seek, Knock: Seeking God With Pen and Paper

As I have considered the ways I most typically journal, I thought I would share how I approach my mornings and what I call my daily Quiet Time.

 

Now depending on who you ask, you can find support for many ideas and philosophies on what makes up a quiet time, why it is important, and certainly some sort of support and Biblical grounds for the practice. But, I want to tell you why I have made it my practice to maintain a morning quiet time for more years than I’d care to admit at the moment.
