A journal keeper of 36 years and living the narrow gate faith





I have been a journal keeper for about 36 years now.

I cannot help but pause and shake my head at this thought. 

Wow.

Another long pause as I try to digest this realization. 

I am a journal keeper and I keep a journal. The first is part of my identity. I am a woman who journals. I also journal for a living and professionally. I also keep a journal personally and spiritually. 

However, it is my Bible, Prayer, and Blessings Journaling which is the closest and dearest to my heart. 

I journal in order to draw closer to the Lord... to get to know Him and the Bible more each moment of every day. 

I journal in order to remember what I read and study in the Bible.

Journaling is how I make sense of the Bible and how I remember what I have read. Journaling is how I ponder the Word of God and apply it to my life. 

This blog is my journaling as I journey with the Lord as we go through the Bible together and enjoy one another's company along the way (as I seek Him and get to know His Word).

Journaling is how I try to pray without ceasing, meditate on the Word of God night and day, and always give thanks. This is the reason for this journaling. 

I have journal for about 36 years and hope to journal with God through the Bible another four decades or more. 

I have searched for a place to keep all of my Bible Notes and Journaling and think this blog journal is the perfect platform. 

Will You Journey with Me?:

While this blog is of my prayer and Bible journaling, I hope I can interact with you as we try to journey with God through daily life and through the Bible in 2018 and beyond. So please. Leave comments. I would love to interact with you and share this journey of life together. 

Living a life of faith is a huge blessing. But, let's face it. Let us be honest here. The walk can be tricky, frustrating, and even lonely at times. After all, when we live the life of the narrow gate faith, it means few are traveling the same path. We have to seek God and search His Word all along the way so we can persevere. 

Care to journey with me and navigate through the Bible and live the narrow gate faith and life?

Prayer:

Lord, we hold out our hands and ask you to take us and lead us through the Bible and through daily living of the narrow gate faith. For we know we cannot do this without You.
