Yesterday I wrote about the pain of living a disorganized life and how this prevents us from giving God glory with our lives.
For the past three months I’ve been using something I created at the end of last year — the Life Book Journal. As someone who likes to write, I wanted a journal where I could freely write but also organize my daily life.
One day last fall as I was reading through the book of Revelation, this verse struck me again. I remembered reading it some time before and the same idea came to mind again. And I wondered if the Holy Spirit was speaking to me?
“On each side of the river stood the tree of life, bearing twelve crops of fruit, yielding its fruit every month. And the leaves of the tree are for the healing of the nations.” Rev. 22:2
I began sketching a tree in my notebook. What if I looked at my life as a tree? What kind of fruit was I bearing each month? Was it what the Lord has for me?
As a writer, I love looking at life as a story we are writing — every single day.
Because whether you realize it or not, you are writing a story — your life story. The question is what kind of a story are you writing?
I created the 12 Life Book Journals with the hope of writing a better life story — the one God created me for. I’m loving using my journal and improving it each month.
Moses prayed, “So teach us to number our days, that we may apply our hearts unto wisdom.” Ps. 90:12
It’s my prayer that the Life Book Journal will help us to do that. People often quote Mary Oliver. “Tell me, what is it you plan to do with your one wild and precious life?” I love her question. But I know without God at the center of my life, I will be like a hamster spinning my wheel everyday.
The pages of the journal are filled with God’s Word to keep us focused on the One who gave us this one beautiful and precious life.
