I started journaling during my high school days. There were many months of absence where there were no journal entries. Not sure if I was too busy, or just simply tired of journaling for the time being. Whatever the reason, I have become faithful in writing again. I find it incredibly powerful to look back through my old journals and see my thoughts, prayers to God, questions and so much more. Not only is some of it amusing as to what I was thinking when I was a teenager, but sometimes I see prayers were answered that I had not really realized or noticed. Obviously God didn’t answer them in MY time, or I would have known. He answered them in HIS time, and His time is always on time.
Recently many people have suggested that I start a blog to let out my feelings. I told these individuals that I already journal, so there is no reason. They argued the point that other people may want to read my thoughts or feelings. I wondered why, but after contemplating it I feel that I should, even if this blog is just for those certain individuals that inquired. So here you go. This is my wide-open journal.
