I finished a journal this morning. It depends on the number of pages and the season of my life I am in, but a journal normally lasts me about 6-8 months. Since last May, I have gone through 3. It has been an eventful 12 months to say the least.
I’ve been journaling for years. I just really enjoy writing and as of late, I find myself with different writing outlets; 4 to be exact. There is the FB status for the quick thoughts that pop in my mind, this blog for what I hope to be thought- provoking insights to my walk with the Lord, my journal for my deepest thoughts and prayers, and finally daily entries I write on my computer to my husband. Yes, I write to my husband everyday even though I am not yet married. I am just practicing to be the communicative, faithful and loving wife I hope to be someday.
Writing gives me an outlet to speak what is in my heart and for my God to speak to me. My favorite kind of writing is when I write out a conversation with the Lord. At the beginning I find myself just writing what I feel and when I look back to read what I have written, I see they were His words through my fingers. It is an exhilarating feeling to know my Heavenly Father is so closely with me. Other times, I just find myself rambling on (like this time, I think), but eventually something great comes out (I hope).
Everytime, however, I do my best to write what my heart is saying to whomever the audience may be; myself, you, my God, or my future husband. You see no matter who the audience is, I never physically see them, but I know they are there and I hope from my words, they know they are always in my thoughts, prayers, and heart…and I will never stop writing to you!
