Journaling Hope

So, I have several posts I’ve been meaning to write with neither the time nor the energy these days. Another day, then.

I took a few minutes to journal today, though, (something I’ve been in the habit of for years) when both kids were asleep (a miracle, I might add). It seems I rarely make time to journal these days, but every time I do, I remember how it blesses me to pour out my heart to God on paper. It’s a healing balm for my weary soul every time. I ended up perusing through some old posts, which I also have a habit of doing, and was so encouraged by some verses from the Psalms I wrote out last year. So, I thought I’d share them with you…in case anyone else needs a little encouragement and perspective on life like I do.

My soul finds rest in God ALONE; my salvation comes from Him. He alone is my Rock and my Salvation; He is my fortress, I will never be shaken.  -PSALM 62

The Lord is my shepherd, I shall not be in want. He makes me lie down green pastures, He leads me beside still waters, He restores my soul.  -PSALM 23

Satisfy us in the morning with your unfailing love, that we may sing for joy and be glad all our days.  -PSALM 90

Whom have I in heaven but you? And earth has nothing I desire but you. My flesh and my heart may fail, but God is the strength of my heart and my portion forever.  -PSALM 73

The Lord is my strength and my shield; my heart trusts in Him and I am helped. My heart leaps for joy.  -PSALM 28

I WAIT for the Lord, my soul waits, and in His word I put my hope. My soul waits for the Lord more than watchmen wait for the morning, more than watchmen wait for the morning.  -PSALM 130

Oh Lord, that you would make these things true of my heart. I want to follow you.
