I press on to take hold

of that for which

Christ Jesus took hold of me

Have you heard of
“Immanuel Journaling”?  
 
It’s spreading like wildfire across America and beyond! Kristi and I have found it to be a wonderful and powerful way to foster a greater awareness of God’s care. It’s a helpful tool for praying through your stress, hurt, intercessions, or whatever you’re experiencing, and appreciating God’s empathy and affirmation for you."

A BELIEVERS

JOURNAL

for men & woman

I, SarahB,

do this nearly every day.

It is part of my "rule of life"

meaning a set of daily or weekly disciplines

I practice in my spiritual formation journey.


Take a moment to…
    Take a few breaths to slow yourself down
    Be fully present to the Presence of God
    Ground your spirit in the love of God

Interactive Gratitude (growing the joy center in the brain)
    Dear God,
    Think of something you are grateful for and begin sharing your heart with God.


A.  Dear Child of mine,

    .... Take a moment to listen to God’s response and write down your impression of how God would

respond to you.

B.  Thought Rhyming


1. I can see you…
        Imagine God seeing your situation, environment, movement and inner experience, etc
“I can see your situation at the dining room in the dark, breathing heavily… I can see…”

2. I can hear you…
        I can hear you say to yourself….

3. I understand how big this is for you
        Imagine God who knows you well, validating
        your experience with compassion

4. I am glad to be with you and see your
        weakness tenderly…
        Imagine God calling your name lovingly
        and simply enjoy being with him.
            “I am always glad to interact with you…”

5. I can do something about what you are going through.
        Imagine God assuring you that he has the power
        to help you and give you everything you need.
