The 5 Minute Life Coach - Experience God Thorugh Journaling, make this the best year yet
January 20, 2009

I know you want to grow in God and improve your life, that's one of the reason's why you read my emails:)

Nothing is as important in your life as learning to hear God's voice

Last week, I was offered an opportunity to join a webinar titled, How To Journal To Hear God's Voice I jumped at the chance and subsequently linked with Dr Randy Peck of Jireh, who is offering a free webinar series Experiencing God Though Journaling.

The first webinar is TODAY. You can listen in live, for free online without becoming a member but my hope is that you will take advantage of Randy's amazing offer of a $1 trial membership.

Believe me when I say, it's worth the investment. There is no obligation to continue your membership, though I believe that many of you will want to when you see what's on offer and experience the power of journaling for yourself.

When you become a Jireh member you will have access to the recorded audio and many other valuable resources. You will find powerful keys to growing in wisdom, understanding and revelation for every area of your life.

I do hope you will join us and discover the keys to hearing God's voice for yourself.

Here is the link

And I do want to give you the option of listening in without taking up the trial membership offer, so here is the direct link to register for the webinar, though remember, you will need to be a member to be able to listen to the replay.

The first journaling webinar takes place at 6 pm EST TODAY Tuesday Jan 20, that's 11pm UK time, which is why I thought you might like access to the replay.

Details, including the registration link can be found at

Dr Randy Peck has just emailed me to ask me to be one of his panelists on tonight's webinar, so now you have even more reason to join us.

I am so looking forward to the wonderful opportunities that are opening up, and very excited at the prospect of you growing to hear God for yourself.

Here is the link to your trial membership again, do go and see what's on offer, there are some very powerful resources.

A Short Guide To Spritual Journaling

Here are some of the reason's why spirtual journaling is such a great idea...

As you journey through life with God, recording your adventure in a journal helps you to keep track.

Journaling is simply a way of recording your journey with God. It helps you to pay more attention to God and is a way of way of learning to hear and respond to Him. By keeping a record you can see what God's been doing, how far you've come and where you're going. Keeping a journal will help you to see how God is working in your life.

Your spiritual journal is more than a place to record daily events

It's a place for inner growth and personal discovery. It acts as a mirror, is a safe place to explore things with God and is a place to generate and record ideas. As such, it becomes a good friend and sounding board.

Benefits of Journaling

Keeping a journal will enlarge your vision and increase your expectancy. It will hels you to keep in good spiritual shape and stay true to your values.

Your journal will act as a safe place to process what God is doing in your life and the lives of those around you.

Journaling leads to personal growth and discovery through writing and reflection.

It helps you to see where you're going with God and to understand your spiritual journey.

Your journal will provide a record that shows you how far you've journeyed, what God has been doing in your life and how much you've grown.

Your journal can be anything you want it to be

It could be a catalogue of your thoughts and prayers and God's answers. A collection of wisdom and insight gleaned from God's word and others. A record of encounters with other Christians God puts across your path whatever serves you.

A Guide To Journaling

Start by praying. Ask the Holy Spirit, your Counsellor and Teacher, to lead you as you journal.

Write what's on your heart. Talk to God; be honest with Him and with yourself. Share your joys, victories, desires, frustrations, uncertainties and heartaches with Him. Write down your goals, prayers, dreams, memories and special events. Record Biblical and spiritual insights and revelations. Write out your praises to God.

Record what God puts on your heart and what He's saying through your dreams and through others.

Date every entry. This helps you to see your progress and makes it easier to find things.

Highlight scriptures that God gives you and words that He speaks to your heart, so you can easily find them in your journal when you want to re-read them. Sometimes God speaks the same thing in different ways as He tries to get your attention and impress on you the importance of what Hes saying. A journal helps you to spot that.

A journal helps us to make sense of our life. It helps us to stop and notice what's happening and what's being said, understand it and respond. A journal helps us to become aware of the many signs of God's presence.

There's no right or wrong way to journal.

I recommend that you don't immediately evaluate what comes. Don't censor your thoughts, simply write, allowing your thoughts to flow uninterrupted.

It's a good idea to do a summary every few months. I'm always encouraged when I do this and amazed at what God has been saying and the many things that I've forgotten.

Please let me know how you get on, and do seriously consider investing in your spritual development. Here is the link to your trial membership again, do go and see what's on offer, there are powerful resources that will help you to go far beyond what you can imagine right now.
