I was recently gifted a faith journal, but wasn’t sure how to use it. I had left it sit for a couple weeks. After the first sermon in the Rhythm series I took it out and began spending 20-30 minutes in it every night before bed. I found that the more I reflected on scripture, God’s presence in my life, and focusing on pleasing Him and prayer…..I was being blessed with peace. Something I hadn’t felt since my husband passed away. I felt a restoration and a union with God that blessed me over and over throughout the week. I look forward to that time each day, and meditating on Psalms 23 each day has given that very familiar scripture new meaning. I still struggle as I learn to work through my grief, but the closeness in the relationship I have with my Heavenly Father carries me and gives me comfort. I don’t just know he holds me and loves me; I feel it!
