Why I love Journalling: - My story and lessons
(Notes and Audio: Available in English only)
Spend just 5 minutes with the Bible, and a notebook and ask “God, what would you say to me today?”
Matthew 4:4 NIV
Jesus answered, “It is written: ‘Man shall not live on bread alone, but on every word that comes from the mouth of God.’”
3 Good points from my early journalling
1.No-one taught me how to do it
2.Got a Bible I liked to read (NIV)
3.My first scripture was amazing, and I was hooked on ‘The Word of God’. (Isa 7:9b)
But 5 things I learnt from my early journalling
1.Many entries with thoughts and no verses - (I was down on myself).
2.Lots of thoughts of the devil, but no verses. (I was strange).
3.Note-taking, study, diary or journalling? (Limit it to bible verses)
4.Others’ thoughts or journalling? (Define 'self-feeding')
5.Gaps of weeks and even months. (Guilt)
So journalling is just four things: “The God of the universe wants to speak to you today"
1.Get a simple plan for 'your brain'
2.Expect a 'God-thought' from the Bible
3.Build a 5-min. habit
Jeremiah 29:11 NIV

Ephesians 3:20 NIV
