I know some of you are already tempted to stop reading this article after seeing the title. I run into so many people that say "journaling just isn’t for me". If that is your thought, I hope to challenge your thinking just a bit so that you can see the benefit of journaling in your own life.
In your life, do you ever get the sense that God is allowing something uncomfortable to cause you to come to Him for rest? I certainly do! Sometimes I am fully aware of my need for His rest, and other times, I am busy and clueless of it.
The truth is that God created us with needs and He actually wants us to be aware of what they are and how to meet those needs.
