I love looking back through my journal.
God can do so much in so few pages.
But the time has come to say good-bye to the old.
Picking out a new journal is quite an ordeal for me. It has to feel right. I like it to fall open a certain way. The spacing in between lines needs to be just so. I love having scripture on each page. God really uses that some days.
My journal represents a season. My season of life. A season of growth in the Lord.
Sounds like a lot to ask from a little book.
But it is a part of me everyday. My journal is an intricate part of my time with Jesus.
I found a new one. And I am very excited…
But as one journal comes to an end, I love to spend a few days reflecting on what God has done. And since March 31st, 2010, he has done so much.
Reflection: Consideration of some subject matter, idea or purpose. a) To think quietly or calmly. b) To express an opinion or thought resulting from reflection.
Today, I am reflecting on the Lord. Who He is. What He has done.
And what He is doing.
I am taking a few days to think quietly and calmly. A retreat away with the Lord – preparing for the next season.
I may not be around quite as much this week.
But enjoy a few one-liners from my retired journal. Reflect with me.
And “feel free to express an opinion or thought of your own, as a result.” 😉
