David Murray

Many Christians have tried journaling as a spiritual discipline to strengthen their faith. A spiritual journal is a daily record of the ups and downs of our spiritual journey. Those who keep it up, testify to the huge benefit, especially looking back on it in later years. Most of us, though, can’t keep it up. Like many good habits, it’s just so hard to stick with it. We stop and start, stop and start, resulting in big blanks between the bursts of journaling. We’ve got pages of nothing, especially during hard times, the very times when journaling would be the most encouraging. Fear gives us writer’s block. Tears erase our text. What can encourage us when times are black and our pages blank? David points us to another journal in Psalm 56, a journal with no blanks.
