I like to think of the Bible as God’s love letter to us, filled with wisdom and encouragement to refer back to again and again. His words meet us right where we are every time we open the Bible, and they serve as a reminder of His presence in our lives.
What would it look like to write a letter back to Him? A journal, perhaps? Jennifer Dukes Lee is on today’s show chatting about her book Stuff I’d Only Tell God: A Guided Journal of Courageous Honesty, Obsessive Truth-Telling, and Beautifully Ruthless Self-Discovery. Join us as she shares why journaling is so therapeutic, how it enables us to connect with God, and how it helps you discover more about yourself.
“This was an answer to the need to journal for the people who don’t know where to begin.”
“God was hearing me all along, even at times when I was unsure if He was listening.”
“You grow in relationships through communicating, and journaling is an intentional means of communicating with your Creator. He values the words you put on the paper.”
“Those kinds of letters become a history and model for us to write down the history of Jesus in our lives. We think we won’t forget these big things in our lives, but there is so much we no longer remember.”
“There is so much value in writing down our story and seeing how Jesus intersects with it all along the way.”
“It’s really valuable to write down your faith story that people can hold on to later.”
“God is close to the brokenhearted. Getting honest opens a door to Jesus entering in and bringing His comfort.”
“I’ve learned to be sympathetic and compassionate to myself.”
