Devotional Journaling

I’ve always been one to write in a journal–my oldest journal dates back to when I was seven years old and just starting to write.  I’m a fairly organized person, so each journal sort of has a different purpose–one for writing events and hopes and how I feel in, and one for prayers and church notes and all that jazz.  Today, I want to tell you about some journals that combine devotionals and writing.

Life Verses: Part Six: Psalm 37:4

I’m back again with another verse that has been impactful to me.  In this series, I’ve been taking you through several verses that helped me get through various seasons of my life and have a special place in my heart.  I hope that as I share these verses with you and what they meant to me that you’ll find they apply to your life also and that you’ll find some encouragement in these posts! Now, let’s get on to this installment’s verse.

Among the Dead

My family, friends, and I went to the Yellow Daisy festival this weekend at Stone Mountain Park, and then did a sunset hike up the mountain afterwords.  Along the way, we found some of the yellow daisies for which the festival was named.

This one in particular captured my attention and I took a picture of it—because there was just one flourishing among the dead. 

It reminded me of the valley of dry bones in Ezekiel 37:

Life Verses: Part Five: Zechariah 4:10

Well, it’s been a while since the last Life Verses post, hasn’t it? I got so caught up in sharing my travel adventures that I just never got back around to telling you about some verses that impacted me for a season of my life.  In case you’re new here and don’t remember the previous Life Verses posts, let me catch you up on what’s going on.  In Christian circles, it’s not uncommon to hear people saying they have a “life verse” or asking other what their “life verse” is.  This would be a verse that has stuck with them throughout their Christian life.  For me, there’s not just one verse that’s a favorite or dear to my heart: there’s several.  Each one made an impact for at least a couple months of my life for the season I was in.  In this series, I’m going back through verses that have been special to me and telling you what they mean to me.
