That’s easy, but do 11 journals count as 11 things? Not to me. They are the chronicles of one life, one story, the cumulative personalities of one person: me. At first, I thought I should grab my Bible, but then I remembered I can get another one. There is no way to reproduce the the contents of my journals. Even if I could remember every thought, every moment recorded, I couldn’t put tear drops on the right pages.
There is intrinsic value in the written word. I imagine the Bible is God’s journal. It records His thoughts, His movements, His plans, His anguish and joy. Then, He gave it to us, His children, so that we can know Him. What better way to know God than to read His journal? And if God journaled, should we?
[Join me this week as we take a look at the value of journaling both for today and the future. We won’t be looking at journaling everyday (I have a short attention span) but today, Thursday and Friday will focus on this topic. At the end of the week, I am going to give away a beautiful, leather journal, so make sure that you comment on one, or all three days for your chance to win.]
