We all know that spiritual growth is important. We know we should be praying, and reading and studying our Bibles. We know praise should be a huge part of a believer’s life. But are we doing anything about it? Are we running through each day, and collapsing in bed at night without spending even 10 minutes with our Heavenly Father?
I’ve been there. I dragged myself out of bed in the morning, tackled my to-do list, worked with the kids on their schoolwork, attempted to clean the house, and skuttled through all the other parts of my day. I meant to read my Bible. I meant to pray. But when I fell in bed at the end of the day, all I had left was a short prayer.
As with all of life, our spiritual health and growth needs to be intentional. We need some structure and a plan.
That’s where the “My Time with Adonai journal” comes into play.
I can’t check up on you to make sure you use it, but I can provide you structure and a plan.
This journal is designed to help you with your Bible study and prayer time. It is beautifully designed and decorated so that you will look forward to opening and using it every day. It is flexible and can be used for an in-depth study time, or for a quick recounting of the day’s blessings. It is divided into five sections.
PRAISE: Use this section for jotting down praises, blessings, things you are grateful for. It also takes you through a study of YHVH’s character. I put in 10 of His character qualities with verses to get you started.
ASK: This section is for listing specific prayer requests with details and dates. Did you tell a friend you would pray for them? Put their request in your journal so that you can be faithful to keep praying.
STUDY: The structure of this section is similar to the “My Bible Journal” page. One page is for copying a longer passage of Scripture. The facing page is for writing commands, sins, application, references to the Messiah, cross references, and more.
PONDER: Any Bible journal would not be complete without an unstructured section for you to write notes from a great teaching, copy down inspirational quotes, write out your prayers, or whatever you need it for. This section has plenty of lined journal pages.
READ: Consider this section the reference section. It includes lists of Scripture passages for study, prayers such as the Amidah and Daniel’s prayer, Torah portion passages, and a section for writing down your book wish list and the date you finish reading each one.
This journal was carefully designed to give you the structure and flexibility you need to sit down and spend time in the Word and in prayer. I hope you will quickly come to enjoy your time with Adonai, and grow spiritually.
