Homeschooling is tough enough, but add shelter-in, worldwide pandemic, laundry, hungry kids and you can lose your mind trying to stay sane. One routine that helps me as a mom is journaling.
OK…you non-journalers hear me out. I used to be one of you!
When I journal, I’m talking & listening to God. I can’t write as fast as I can think, so journaling helps slow me down to really listen to God. I don’t journal every day, probably a couple times a week.
Sometimes it’s a quick 3 minute journal entry … that’s all I have time for. Other times, it’s a longer journaling time, pouring out my soul, my hurts, my anger, my bitterness, my gratitude & praise to God.
What I discovered with journaling is I go to God first, instead of people. In the past, I’d grab my phone and call my sister or friend when I was upset. I’d “throw up” on them. Thinking they could help me.
Ever done that?
Now . . . I grab my journal and take a God poll, instead of a people poll. It keeps my focus on the only “certain” one in the world.
What’s all this got to do with my Mother’s Day gift to you?
