One of the greatest benefits of journaling for me is it being a consistently efficient and effective tool for genuine growth and transformation. Authentic change is not something to be passively desired, but something to be actively determined.
Enter journaling. Journaling is a way to take responsibility for and practice Deliberate, Creative, and Sustained personal transformation. By deliberate, I mean consciously and purposefully identifying specific areas in our lives where we wish to grow. By creative, I mean imagining and designing inspiring and practical strategies to cultivate our growth. By sustained, I mean mentally reviewing ways we have grown and are growing, and mentally previewing ways we wish to grow.
Life is a wondrous gift that none of us ever saw coming. Through the prayerful attention and intentional reflection of journaling, God's great gift becomes our great offering.
P.S. When journaling, note that questions are as important, if not more important, thananswers. Here are three questions to get you started or urge you on in your "Journaling the Journey of Transformation Practice":
1. What specific ways am I seeking to grow as a child of God?
2. What am I presently curious about?
3. What rocks am I currently searching under?
