Learning & Journaling

As we study and record our learning process we will find answers to our problems and receive clarity. Reading is not enough to retain and assimilate new knowledge. As we record our thoughts, God can speak individually to us and give us greater direction. Acting on those thoughts will further the receipt of answers. Knowledge is given line upon line only after we have demonstrated a willingness to act on what has been given to us.

Courage from God's Promises
To acquire spiritual knowledge and to use it with wisdom, one must: 1. In humility, seek divine light. 2. Exercise faith in Jesus Christ. 3. Strive diligently to keep his commandments. As knowledge unfolds it must be understood, valued, used, remembered, and expanded.

Sometimes if your mind goes a million miles an hour, typing can be healing to just get all of your thoughts out there.

Blogging helped me to just get it out and get it out fast. Once it was out and I could read and re-read it, it helped me to understand what I needed to do next. My mind was no longer screaming at me because I gave it a voice on the blog.



Journaling is the only time, other than praying, where I can be 100% honest with my thoughts.

I don’t have to worry about the affects they will have on others or any judgements that may come. Once they are down on paper, I feel like it easier to let them go, move forward and not continue to dwell on them. I hope that someday they will be a source of strength and help me see progress.



I kept a journal too, but I did it in letter form.

I also added scripture, random thoughts, and helpful qoutes. It was kind of a smash scrap book. There were pictures. My book understood when nobody else did. Sometimes I wrote to God. It helps me see how far I have grown.
