I love going back every once in a while and reading old things that I have written in the heat of passion for God. I have many of my journals from when I was a teenager. I found a devotional today that my Mom and Dad gave me on my wedding day. I read in these statements of faith, prayers, desires, etc that were so strong in me and in reading I revive those emotions. To look back and see the patience that God has had with my stubborn heart and the methodical yet loving way that He has led me down the path of seeking Him stirs me. Am I really any closer than I was all those years ago? Do I know you any better Daddy God? I really hope I do. I once heard it said that everything Jesus is involved in will grow and change and that if we are not growing or changing we need to see how involved Jesus is with us. I definitely feel like I have changed! I hope for the better. Do yourself a favor friends. Record your walk with God. Write, Journal, Blog do what you have to do but do not let God's activity in your life go unmarked and unremembered.
I hope and pray that anyone who reads these little sentences I squirt into cyberspace is uplifted and encouraged but to be entirely honest, this is for me and God, and that is why I do it.
