This Tuesday night, Julie - one of our wonderful young adults - talked about her journal in our discussion. Actually, she doesn't know this, but GOD spoke through Julie. I have always kept a prayer journal. I have not been lately.
Last night, I stopped at the store and bought a composition notebook (I wanted a pretty hardbound book but they didn't have any and I was too tired to go anywhere else!) I bought two new pens. (I had to have the right supplies!!)
So this morning, I got up at 5:00 and got dressed and walked my 1.8 mile route (it was COLD!). I even tried to cut my walk short by telling God that I needed time to pray - don't you think he chuckled over that one! I finished my walk and came inside. I opened my Bible and read a chapter from Matthew and then I began to pray (and write!). Peace descended upon me as I thanked God for numerous things. I poured out my heart onto a piece of notebook paper.
I thank God that he is always there . . .and that he patiently waits for us.
