As my title implies, God is steering this blog into a different direction. Over the years, I’ve been told by more people than I can count I should journal. I’ve done a couple of entries into a notebook or typed something in a Word document, but I’ve never stuck with it. The few times I have, I was surprised and a bit shocked at the direction my writing took. I found myself looking at what had spilled out of me thinking, “I didn’t even know that was in there.” Or “I didn’t even know that was an issue.” It amazes me how God brings things to the surface.
So, starting tomorrow, I’m going to make a conscious effort to journal every day. I may miss a day or two, but this will be me basically spilling my guts. I believe this is the direction God is taking me where this website is concerned. This is a place for me to just journal, but as always, feel free to comment – remembering to keep it nice.
To be honest, I’m still not sure how to even journal. I don’t know if there is a format or a list of what to do/not do. Do you say “Dear Diary”? Or “Dear Journal”? Ok, that last one was silly. In my spirit, I hear Him whisper, “Just write.”
I have a feeling this is about to get very real.
