Spiritual journaling is a great way to build an intimate relationship with
God. An intimate relationship with your
It will help you build a deep connection with something much bigger then yourself.
Journaling is also very helpful in the areas of self-reflection, self-identification, and self-awareness.
It's a place where you can record your beliefs or non-beliefs about life and what happens when you die. Or when you transform from the form to the formless.
Looking deep inside yourself to really get to know your beliefs will help you in all area of your life.
Spiritual journaling doesn’t have to be based on any particular religion either. Or it can be solely based on one religion. It's your personal choice to make.
There are simply no rules to journaling. It’s a wide open space that is used by many for many different reasons. All personal and all a self-portrait of who you truly are.
Use it as a way to become one with God or to record your prayers as well as the answers.
Use it as a way to remember some key points that you learned from reading a spiritual book. Write down words, sentences, or paragraphs that really spoke to you on a deep level.
If you take the time up front to record all you’re AHA moments and awakenings in your spiritual journal you’ll have an abundance of great and valuable information to use whenever you need or want to.
Information that is special and important to you. You cannot find that depth of wisdom in any other book, unless you wrote it based on your beliefs and spiritual philosophies. You get the point.
Journals are the footprints of your soul. It could be the best of times or the worst of times, your journal will still be there, silently waiting for you to make an entry.
Spiritual journaling is a way into yourself and a way out of yourself. How? By clearing the clutter inside your head so that you can become more aware of your entire being.
Here are a few Bible verses to help get you started –
I can do all things through Christ which strengthens me. Philippians 4:13
The lord is my strength and my shield; my heart trusted in him, and I am helped. Psalm 28:7
His compassions fail not. They are new every morning. Lamentations 3:22-23
If God be for us, who can be against us? Romans 8:31
The kingdom of God is within you. Luke 17:21
I have come into the world as a light, so that no one who believes in me should stay in darkness. John 12:46
”If you can?” said Jesus. “Everything is possible for him who believes.” Mark 9:23

I will strengthen you and help you. I will hold you up with my victorious right hand. Isaiah 41:10
Those who trust in the Lord are as Mount Zion, which can't be moved, but remains forever. Psalm 125:1
His lord said to him, ‘Well done, good
and faithful servant. You have been faithful over a few things, I will set you
over many things. Enter into the joy of your lord.’
These verses should help you make at least one entry in your spiritual journal, you think? Journaling about your life in a spiritual way will give you a deeper more realistic view of what life really means.
Life is not about cars, money, the best schools, the latest gadget, or the biggest house. It's much more than that. It's about the things unseen. And the only way to know they exist is to feel them, to experience them on a deep internal level.
I want you to keep a spiritual journal not because you have to but because you want to. Get to know your true Creator and your life will never be the same.
