Let the morning bring me word of your unfailing love, for I have put my trust in you. Show me the way I should go, for to you I entrust my life. – Psalm 143:8 NIV
One of the things that helps me sleep before I go to bed is journaling. I read a Bible verse, pray that the Lord will give me the right words to share, and then I write whatever comes to mind.
I have committed to this prayer journal practice for almost a year now, and it does give me peace! My prayer journal has helped me overcome depression and anxiety. It has helped me to realign my priorities according to His will. I have even gained the courage to talk about my faith with others, when I previously felt too shy to say anything.
The Lord makes us strong and courageous. Every morning we wake up, we can thank God for the life and guidance He has given us. Amen.
