Faith journaling is a gift for the long haul, to make your faith active. “Journaling is a pathway for joy & a powerful tool in the hands of love.” It could be a habit-based approach to your spiritual growth, to help you focus on what is God saying to you.

How should one begin?

There is no right or wrong way to start your journal.

For a start, you may reflect on the following points and write them down on the first page of your journal:

-Why do I want to keep a faith journal?

-Have I ever had the slightest experience with Jesus?

-Who is Jesus to me?

Any other smaller steps towards keeping a Faith Journal?

If you feel like you are not so comfortable with writing (yet), but you enjoy scrolling and reading posts on Instagram for the word of God, you can create a collection and save your favorite posts in the collection.

Here are some accounts that you can follow on Instagram:

Daily Faith Journaling Inspiration

On a Normal Day

-Keep track of the things/people/events that you are grateful for.

-Keep track of encouraging and meaningful scriptures, and reflect on it. Write down your reflections.

  • How is it relevant to my life at this point in time?
  • What is it that inspired me?
  • What have I learnt from it?
  • Who can I share it with?

During Tough Moments

-Pray for God’s grace to grant you a peaceful heart and clear mind. Write down Truth to remember rough moments.

  • What is it that I have sinned?
  • What is it that I need healing from?
  • Is there anyone that I can pray for?
  • What is God calling me to?
