Read an Excerpt
Keeping a journal is writing the story of your life as it unfolds. Good and bad, happy and sad, silly and profound.
I'm blessed with an extraordinarily happy life today, but there have been seasons of my life I'd rather forget, seasons when my soul has been "downcast within me." Yet I've learned the value of remembering the hard times as well as the joyful moments, and a journal helps me do that. You see, it's only by looking back that we can appreciate the difficulties we've overcome, the fears we've conquered, the lessons we've learned. It's only by looking back that we can see that single set of footprints in the sand, the footprints of the Savior as he carried us when weakness stole our strength.
When I review the random writings and journal jottings I've made throughout my life, I see again and again the most blessed gift God gives to all of us each morning and throughout the day: the promise of a second chance, a new beginning, a fresh start.
Because of his great love, we are not consumed by the challenges that confront us, the mistakes we make, or the losses we endure. His compassions never fail. And every new day that dawns brings us another gift of grace, another opportunity to try again.
I've put together this guided journal hoping you'll find it an inviting, comfortable place to write the story of your life, one day at a time, during the next one hundred days. It's "guided" because the Scripture passage and accompanying thought from me to you have been selected to encourage and inspire you to write. They're intended as a little spark to ignite your spirit and encourage you to record your thoughts and prayers, especially on those days when you may think you have nothing to say. I hope you'll let God's Word and my gentle prompting get you started.
When these pages are full, you'll have recorded a chapter of your personal history. I hope it's one you'll enjoy reading and rereading in the years ahead, finding in your own words the insight and wisdom gleaned from one hundred new days, well lived.
