I was reminded of this verse by a friend yesterday and it got me thinking about about my spiritual journal and how I have neglected it in recent years. I began it in 1985 when I first began to experience God’s Presence and hear His voice. It seemed to me then the obvious and important thing to write these things down. And I can tell you it makes amazing reading!
Often God speaks to us and we may or may not understand what He is saying, but when we write down those words, scriptures and experiences that He graciously gives us, they are a treasure to look back on, and we begin to understand what God is doing in our lives and where He is leading us. How many times have you been through an experience and then slowly realised that this was an answer to a prayer that you had forgotten you prayed? It’s happened to me many times. We have very short memories! Writing these things down is a tremendous encouragement, and if you don’t keep some record of what God is doing in your life, even if only for your eyes only, then I urge you to start today. Keep a little notebook, or start typing at your keyboard. I guarantee you won’t regret it!
