The Blessings of a Journaling Memory

Updated: Jan 23, 2023

I found a journaling note from July 27, 2020 that has made me eager to celebrate my 2nd anniversary of a cross-country move.

My journal note read:

Ps 19:7,8 The instructions of the Lord are perfect, reviving the soul. The decrees of the Lord are trustworthy, making wise the simple. NLV

Recently I had this kind of personal instruction: I was looking up accompanying scriptures to my study on repentance. I turned to Ex 23:20, “See, I am sending an angel before you to protect you on your journey and lead you safely to the place I have prepared for you.”

Although this had nothing to do with repentance, it became a rhema word to me. According to Kenny Gatlin Ministries “a rhema word is a specific word which the Holy Spirit quickens in our hearts and minds at a specific time for a specific purpose”. Rhema words do not need to be memorized because they are imprinted, like a branding iron, upon our hearts. This rhema word reminded me of the many times that I had stepped out into an adventure with Christ. It became my comfort during the1200 mile journey, reviving my soul.

Today my soul is revived just re-reading my journal.

Journaling can be a comfort in the moment, a message to others who may learn through it, and a joyful reminder to God's faithfulness.
