About Journaling


I love sitting down and have conversations with the Lord and hear what He has to say. By definition a conversation is when at least 2 people are talking and listening to each other. Most of the time we focus on doing all the talking, specifically asking God for help. But God’s heart is full and has so much to share with us also. As much as we want to talk with Him, He also yearns to talk with us. I started my journaling journey back in 2002 when I took a course on Intimacy with God and it changed my prayer life forever. The textbook we used was called Communion with God by Mark Virkler. The said book has since been out of print I believe, but Mark and Patti Virkler have other great books out that are all on the topic of learning to hear God’s voice as well as teaching on all other ways in which God speaks to us. On my blog I share entries of my journal. I hope my entries are an inspiration to you, especially those to whom the idea is still a new one and that you will get hungry to pursue your own journey in journaling as well as this is for all believers in Christ. His sheep hear His voice and follow Him. John 10:27

  4. Glad to connect with someone else who likes to journal! After the day’s Bible reading, I look over what I just read, see what stuck out to me the most and write that passage down. Then, I write. Sometimes a prayer, a poem, or simply thoughts are the result. In January I began a blog…which is my journal in tweaked form. Appreciate your follow!

    1. Yay! I love to connect with others who journal too. Will look forward to read your entries you post!!

  11. I’ve been journaling for years Lisette it is one of the main ways I communicate with God even now new thoughts are coming through from God as I grow in intimacy with Him that is surprising me and also healing me. I saw your blog the other day and how He said he loved you over and over again this blew my mind as I struggle with this due to abuse. Glad we’re connected Lisette a real blessing …. jacqui xx
