Jeremiah 30:2 says “God’s Message, the God of Israel: ‘Write everything I tell you in a book.”
A lot of my time (the first two years) in recovery I spent a lot of time writing and taking notes on things I learned through the process of recovery. I had to because much of my short-term memory was shot. If I didn’t write things down and when alone read them I don’t believe I would be where I am today.
Journaling is an important part of recovery. It gives us a fresh look into ourselves, our attitudes, actions, and behaviors.
On studying what the Bible says about journaling I found the following points for writing things down.
I. Written words travel farther than spoken.
II. Written words are preserved better than spoken.
III. Written words fulfill a more enduring ministry than spoken.
IV. Written words fill a sphere which spoken cannot reach.
– Do you journal?
– If not, why not?
