There are many types of journals one can keep. There are some that record the happenings of the day. Others may contain your dreams, and thoughts. Whether private or shared they are a wonderful way of marking the passage of time.
Over the years I have kept a variety. When I was young there were those that were locked with a key. They are gone now lost somewhere in the past.
In high school one of the English courses required students to keep a daily journal. It too is no more.
What has been kept and stored are my prayer journals. They are filed away in a safe place. Over twenty years I have written down daily prayers. They are important to me...words not only of praise and joy but also concerns...personal and for others. When I look back over these pages they encourage me. They show me how God works.
Certainly there have been requests that have gone unmet. Questions that may never be answered on this side of life.
Who will read these prayers when I am gone remains a mystery. Perhaps within the pages there may be a word, a thought, or even an answer for someone else seeking Him.
For now though they are a recording of a life's journey.
Thank you for stopping by. Have a blessed evening !
