Tips on Journaling
- The purpose of journaling is an expression to God and a time to reflect. These aren’t fill in the blank question or even short answer. The questions are simply springboards to get you thinking.
- Don’t worry about length of writing. Different people express thoughts differently. You’ll likely know when you’re done, but don’t stop until you get there.
- Your best use of these journaling questions are to use them as prayers to the Lord.
