Finding Hope through Spiritual Journaling
I want to begin with hope. Hope matters to me. When I wrote my spiritual autobiography I tried to choose memories that resonated with hope. This didn't mean that I always chose happy memories. It did mean that I cared, and still do care, about finding the light in the darkness: finding that light brings me hope. I pray it will bring others hope too. Hope is the source of all spiritual direction.
Hope is my inspiration. Simply sharing your personal testimony with a good friend over a cup of coffee has power. A Christian testimony can reveal the power Jesus Christ has to rebuild a life. A spiritual story from your journal can become a personal testimony of salvation for someone else. A vignette from your life can become proof, for someone else, that God exists. Blog postings, Facebook pages and posts to Twitter can make a difference. Joining a support group can become support for you and someone else. Don’t limit the opportunities you have to share! Before you know it, your spiritual autobiography, or spiritual memoir, will emerge!
