We are continuing on our 30 days of prayer journaling journey. If you’re just joining us today is Day 3 in a series of 30 days of prayer journaling prompts. You can find Day 1 here. Did you make a New Year’s Resolution? How do you plan to track your progress? One of the ways I have tracked my progress on both my New Year’s Resolutions and my goals that I set throughout the year is through journaling. Journaling is not only an enjoyable hobby it is also a great way to keep up with your progress on your resolutions and goals.
Daily writing in a journal can be a difficult habit to form, but once you do, it can become addictive. I started journaling around 1994, when I was only a teenager and I haven’t stopped since. Some habit huh?
Many people say that they enjoy journaling because it allows them to freely release their thoughts and feelings. Therefore, what could be a greater way to release your frustrations or record your victories as you tackle those New Year’s Resolutions than to start journaling?
Some people like the idea of others being able to one day read their entries and admire their accomplishments and struggles while others loath the thought of someone else ever reading their recorded thoughts. Well, if you want someone to read them, pass them on to them, however if you do not just destroy them after you’ve filled the journal to the brim with entries. Either way do what works for you.
Maybe add another resolution to your list, resolve to journal your journey through this New Year as you attempt to keep your resolutions and reach your goals. Journaling provides you with a sense of accountability and enjoyment as well.
Now here is today’s prayer journaling prompt:
Describe the worst feeling in the world,
the one thing that makes you feel the worst.
Then write about how you deal with that feeling.
