I cannot stress how important journaling is to every believer. It is more essential than blogging, and tweeting. It is a piece of your cornerstone in Christ. A handbook that accompanies you throughout your journey in Christ. A handbook that is second-nature to your Bible.

Just the other evening I lie on my back with my five journals cupped between my hands, held high. A smile came over me. A pleasantry filled my body. I was ecstatic. In my hands, I hold my testimonies, my conversations with God, our time spent together-- His encouragement, His teachings! Everything pertaining to our time together spent these past four years! Revelation, inspiration; it was all there.

Four years, four full journals!
Glory to GOD alone!

(today I took these photos)

(that orange one on the top is my brand new one! i like it
sooo much! hardback and bound; sooo nice! target $7).

(that's the orange one on top again. i LOVE the binding!!)

God has been reminding me how important it is to re-read your older journals, starting with the first, and reading them in the order they were written; kind of like a multi-volume work. New and existing revelations are to be had. Reminders are within those pages; wonderful things await you.

If you have yet to begin journaling your time spent with God (journaliing = hand-written), including recorded scriptures He's led you to, including instructions for "the vision" and so forth,


From yesterday,
(a stepping-stone reminder): "Start building your foundation early! Things can begin anew with YOU!," WDJ

Habakkuk 2:2-3
2And the LORD answered me, and said, Write the vision, and make it plain upon tables, that he may run that readeth it.

3For the vision is yet for an appointed time, but at the end it shall speak, and not lie: though it tarry, wait for it; because it will surely come, it will not tarry.

Glory to God, saints!!!
