2 Tim 1:7 NKJV (Sound mind) “For God has not given us a spirit of fear, but power, Love and a Sound Mind.”
I have noticed after the past few weeks that joyful journaling has slowly transformed my thinking from dwelling on things that upset me to going to the Lord with appreciation moments. I can feel tense and justify my feelings of upset, anger, etc. only to find myself transitioning to a time in the secret place where I am thanking Immanuel for blessings. In the course of the dialog or journaling I find myself becoming relaxed content and just relishing my time with my Lord. The thing(s) that triggered me to be upset just seemed to melt into the background. I realize more and more that most of the things that have irritated me have been so trivial. Now I am more and more aware of my own judgmental heart. God is so gentle with me. He is so patient. He celebrates my just being with Him “warts” and all. I love this journaling adventure
