Keeping a Spiritual Journal
Learn how to begin your spiritual autobiography, or spiritual memoir, by keeping a spiritual journal, prayer journal or through spiritual journaling.
Embark on an exciting journey. Start your spiritual autobiography by keeping a spiritual journal. Make your spiritual journal the place where you can keep track of your own spiritual journey. Over time your spiritual memoir will take form and you will find a voice for your story.
You can find a voice for your story! People think that they have to do something, or experience something, remarkable to have a reason to share their story. They have a way of believing that their "ordinary" lives are powerless. The value in reaching out is missed in their poor estimation of what they have to offer. They wait for something "big" to happen to them before they recognize the importance of their journey. They don’t acknowledge the special gift they have to share. It’s the gift of their ordinary lives shared with others: the gift of their very own spiritual journey. Regardless of who you are, where you have been or what has happened in your life, you can find a voice for your story.
If you choose to tell the story of your life, you too will tell it in your own, unique way. Everyone brings their special touch to the expression of their journey, making the experience of telling and receiving stories a flavorful and powerful experience. Parts of my journey happen to have been captured on a canvas. It’s just one of the many expressions of a journey. I will share my journey my way. If you share yours you will do the same. I encourage you to embrace these expressions rather than be discouraged by them. It’s your story. Tell it your way. Let others do the same. Enjoy the ways God has made us all unique.
