This week at church we were given journals to record God’s blessings, the way He moves, and the way He uses us to be the Light of Christ to those around us.
Journaling serves many purposes. It reminds us how God intervenes in our lives, how He caused circumstances to allow us to bless others, and to not forget the instances of those blessings.
I’ve journaled for years, but this journal will be for the specific ways Jesus has operated in and through me.
A few weeks ago I began a new journal specifically for the way my new kitchen has blessed others. At this point, I only have a few entries, but maybe by this time next year many more pages will be filled.
To go back and read old journals helps us to remember God’s faithfulness. Proverbs 17:22 says: A merry heart doeth good like a medicine . . . . Here’s hoping you have many instances this new year to have a merry heart.
P.S. If Jesus hadn’t come there would be no real joy. Merry Christmas!
