I am a journal keeper and have been one for over 39 years. With that being said, I think it might be helpful for me to explain what I mean by journaling. I journal where my audience is the Father.
In fact, what you might say is I prayer journal and I journal through the Bible.
My journaling is also taking notes from what I read in the Bible.
Then, there's also my to do list, my shopping list, my calendar (schedule; planner), lists of counting my blessings, lists of memories, lists of what I do each day, and so forth.
Some would say it is my catch-all. That's true. It's where I capture my life on the page.
I journal every single day and most days of the week, I journal off and on all day long. Most days, I journal for several hours. And I have done this for decades.
But my journal is so much more than all that.
My journal is where I meet the Father. It's sacred ground.
