~WELCOME TO MY JOURNAL~
My journal — my hidden place with the Lord — holds so many secrets, unlocking so many places that have freed my heart. My holy hope is that it will unlock places where maybe you’ve been imprisoned like me, and places where you’ve wrestled and quietly questioned will be opened to the truth. It’s my prayer that we will walk this way together, be tackled with answers, immersed in God’s perfect love, grace and mercy, and be refreshed and set free.

I have so many notes; throughout my journal, on notecards, necklaces, framed, typed, taped up, on chalkboards, you name it. Think on all the notes you post as motivators.

Do you have concerns that try to win, to gain ground and take over? My concerns can cause competition. The competition for my heart. Will my heart win or will my concerns consume me and take me down?
