What you need:
*Ask Yourself Questions* As you look back on your notebook you will be able to re-ask yourself the questions that you wrote down, and if you are anything like me, they will be questions that you need to ask yourself over and over.
*Use Song Lyrics* The words from a favorite praise song or hymn are a great way to add to your journal. I sometimes get a little crazy and take lyrics from any old love song and give those words a “God” theme. I think any song will work as long as you focus on Him.
*Repeat Yourself* Many times I have written a Bible verse or special quote more than once in my journal. Sometimes what I have written is applied differently to whatever situation I am struggling with at the time, compared to when I wrote it down the first time. Sometimes it is simply a part of God’s word that I hold fast to over and over. Either way, don’t God’s words and promises bear repeating again and again?
*Be Funny* When I watch my girls reading through my journal I love to see them laughing about my silly drawings and analogies. Being happy in your faith is a life altering experience. Nothing will make you happier in life than an ongoing relationship with God. Write about it and laugh!
So there it is, my Faith Notebook. I have been working on it for over two years! I am about half way through it now and it is one of my goals to finish this year. (Goal #65 of 101 Goals in 2012) It is something I plan on continuing for the rest of my life and hopefully it will inspire someone to start one too. Get ready…..your faith is about to grow!
