mark batterson is one of my favorite pastors and writers out there. his blog is on my must-read list, and it should be on yours, too.
a week or so ago, mark posted about journaling. he states that journaling is a spiritual discipline; it’s the vehicle by which “write the vision” (a la Habakkuk 2:2) and by which we “take every thought captive” (a la 2 Corinthians 10:5).
and i think he is absolutely right.
i have used a moleskine journal for several years. however, i have not yet definited my journaling style. sometimes i create prayer lists. sometimes i write my prayers out in a narrative style. sometimes i write things to pray for on certain days and sometimes i don’t. i write…and usually consistently…but it’s the scribblings of a direction-less wanderer.
and that irks me. maybe it shouldn’t. but it does.
i wish mark would allow comments on his blog. i would love to see how he sets his prayer journal up.
but since he doesn’t, i’ll ask you.
what is your journaling style? do you use a journal? why or why not? how do you organize and use your journal for prayer? share your ideas.
