Jehovah was not in the wind. And after the wind, an earthquake: Jehovah was not in the earthquake.
And after the earthquake, a fire: Jehovah was not in the fire. And after the fire, a soft gentle voice. (1Kings 19:11-12)

Words of Wisdom for the Weekend: Unlocking the Secrets of our Hearts




“In a sense journal keeping is a form of prayer;
we are ‘searching our hearts’ in God’s presence
and asking Him to ‘know our thoughts’.” 
~Luci Shaw ‘Life Path’

  2. Dear Rebakah
    I think any thought towards God, ever sigh, ever tear are all a part of prayer as well! You know those times when we have no words, but can only call out His name!

  3. From one Journaler to another - So Much Yes!!! I have stacks and stacks and usually several going at once... and so often what I start to write is not intended to be prayer - but oh how it turns into that! I love this! Visiting from The Weekend Brew today! Have a blessed weekend!

  4. I completely agree that journaling (at least mine) is praying. I so often am doing just that as I write, even when surrounded by others in a coffee house or in the Barnes & Noble Bookstore. Just the way I write and have for years. Thanks for your affirmation here. Caring through Christ, ~ linda

  5. Hi Rebekah! I like the way you point out that journaling is a way of searching for God. I journal quite a bit, but I always thought it just helped me remember my inspirations. I like your take on it!

    Peace in Christ,
    Ceil

  6. I am what you call and ADD journaler. I have a few journals started but I can't seem to stay with one. I would love to get back to the discipline of journaling!

  7. I'm much like Barbie. I love to journal but need to make it more of a daily habit. I loved this quote and will need to remember it. Have a blessed Sunday.

  8. I'm here from Barbie's. I love this quote about journaling. I've kept all of my journals for 3 decades! I love having the history of my walk with God written down, the good times, the hard times, the things He has spoken to me.
