A Safe Place to Land | Journaling in this Season

We are living in historic times and are able to watch God work like never before. Things are happening every day that we think we'll remember, but the truth is we might not.  We're thrilled to bring you some new journal styles that are perfect to use for such a time as this!  

There are so many ways to use them, but we'd love to share with you a few of our favorite ways to journal during this season...

What did you do each day of quarantine?  Did you call a friend?  Zoom with your small group?  Watch a movie with the family?  Write it down, then you'll be able to look back and remember all the sweet memories you made in 2020 🙂

My mentor told me about God lists and they have helped so much with my anxiety.  Here's how it works...each day make a T-chart : On one side write God and on the other side write your name.  Under God, write out everything that you're worried about that you cannot control or do anything to change, but you can give it to God instead (ex. the health of your family, the status of your job, etc.).  Below your name, write the things that you are responsible for (ex. helping your kids with school work, making dinner, etc.).  This is a way to lay your prayers and worries at the feet of Jesus.

My oldest is currently documenting the events of our days + our world.  She recently studied about the Holocaust + Anne Frank at school, so she has dreams of her journals becoming a book some day. 😉 If nothing else, she'll love looking back at her entries in the years to come.

If you're anything like me, I have to write out my prayers to prevent from getting distracted.  It helps me stay focused and intentional.  I also love going back and seeing how God answered those prayers.

God is at work and He is providing for us in ways that we could miss if we're not looking for it.  It's easy to see the negative, but what if each night before bed we wrote down how God was faithful that day.  I believe it would change our perspective.
