Hello gals! I have some exciting news for you…well its super exciting for me at least. I filled up my entire devotional journal!!! Eeeeeeee I’m so happy! Now, this may not seem like a big deal to you, but it is huge for me. I have always been so bad about being consistent with my daily quiet times, but this summer, God was really telling me that I needed to change. I needed to become more dependent on Him. I've heard that it takes 21 days for something to become habit, which means I’ve actually made my time with God a habit. And boy has it been helpful. God has been pushing me more in these past 6 weeks than He has in a long time, and I’m finally being responsive :)
Here is my old journal:
My youth leader gave me this journal last summer as a graduation gift. Unfortunately, I only used it for small group planning and sermon notes on Sundays while I was at school. In those 9 months, I didn’t even manage to fill it halfway. But since the summer started, I kicked it into gear and poured my thoughts, worries, and prayers out onto these pages. It became my journal to God.
Of course since I finished my journal…I HAD to go buy a new one, right? (ok does anyone else get as excited about this as I do??) So I hopped into my car and drove over to Target, avoided the clothing section with all my might, and made my way to the journal isle. So many choices!!
I ended up buying this bad boy:
Isn’t it cute? It has 160 pages just waiting for me to write in! Andddd its hard-bound, so I won’t be tempted to rip out pages for random things.
I also bought these cute little journals that came in a 3-pack. My goal is to use them as prayer journals. (and I have multiple so I can’t run out!…I’m thinking I'll use the green first) God has been leading me to start being selfless and more intentional with people, so these are only for the prayers and needs of others!
Aren’t the little quotes just darling?!
Well here’s my set: I can’t wait to see how God molds me through the time I devote in them
Also, if anyone has any prayer requests they would like me to pray for, please don’t hesitate to shoot me an email (found on my contact page) I would love to pray for you!
“For God gave us a spirit not of fear, but of power, love, and sound mind.”
