Title: Journaling with Jesus: How to Draw Closer to God
Author: Carol Round
Genre: Religion, Spiritual
I love the introduction to this book at is asks the question – “what is prayer?” Not the dictionary version by YOUR version – what does prayer mean to you? It is a powerful question and it helps you get started on your way to developing your own prayer journal.
The next chapters discuss the difference between a journal and a diary and the importance and benefits of keeping a prayer journal vs. a diary, especially when contemplating a big change, going through a particularly stressful or rough patch in life and keeping a prayer journal will start to transform your life and will assist you during those difficult times.
I found this book very helpful as I started to think about starting my own prayer journal. I have always kept diaries from the time I was a teenager but never had a journal and didn’t really even understand the difference between the two until I read this book. It provided great insight and helpful tips for my own special prayer journal. I spend my time with God in the morning and now I have a better focus on my meditation and special quiet time with the Lord. I am thankful that I had the opportunity to review this book as it renewed by strength and provided guidance and wisdom. It is a must have book for prayer journaling.
Journaling with Jesus provides great starter questions when you have writers block or to help you get started on your prayer journaling journey. The importance of journaling your prayers is to see how God has answered your prayers over time. We write to grow and not stay the same.
After reading this book, you too will want to start your own prayer journal because it encourages you to “come as you are!”
Key Quote: “By expressing your thoughts, feelings and insight on the pages of a journal, you will be surprised when you discover God in the process. In turn, He will use your journal as an instrument to transform you. Your journal will also become your way of holding yourself accountable to spiritual maturity.”
