Have you ever been lonely?

The apostle Paul is one of my favorite people in the Bible. Once I see Jesus and Joseph and Elijah in heaven, I really want to hang out with Paul. The revelation he brought forth in his letters has been my lifeline. His life has been such an inspiration to me. I can’t read II Timothy without getting emotional. They are his last words to his son in the faith before he is going to be martyred. And there are some powerful revelations in that book. This verse always gets to me:

Mirror or window (a peek inside my journal)…

My journal is very precious to me…and very private. I typed 3 other blogs this morning and wasn’t happy with any of them. I kept coming back to this…I need to share my journal page with you. My journal is filled with my private thoughts and things I get from the Lord. I write down the scriptures that encourage me and things He speaks right to my heart. The Word inspires me. It refreshes me. It encourages my faith and trust in the Lord. But most of all, the Word CHALLENGES me…and I capture those challenges too, usually with tears, so I can grow and change and draw closer to the One who loves me so much!
