These journals lay on my shelf untouched. They stay untouched until I need to remember.
I find myself picking them up when I need to be reminded where I have been. I need to be reminded that God saw my needs and and heard my cries. I need to be reminded where I am headed on this journey of life.
|Journal entry from 1999|
I prayed prayers of guidance for the first days of ministry for our family 14 years ago. I read about the places of joys and struggles. I find difficult times of decision. When I read the entries I can't help but think of Nehemiah 9:9-15 and unfortunately at times I read times like Nehemiah 9:16-20.
And all the while He saw. He's El Roi. He heard. He made. He knew. He lead. He provided. He spoke. He gave. Truth. Good words. Compassionate.
