Scribbles From your Brain (and Mine!)

–and the heart and the emotions and the pain and the—–whatever. That’s what journaling is.

Sometimes I wonder if anyone will be able to read, let alone understand my thoughts as I wrote them. It doesn’t really matter, because those pages fulfil their original purpose. They help me remember where I was, the difference God has made in my life and the places He wants me to go.

When I read that journalling was a key to freedom from sexual abuse, I started writing immediately. My journals (about 35 now!) are the place where I tell the truth to myself and to God and in doing so, I find the real me. They walked me through painful abuse issues to healing and acceptance.

What about you? Tried everything but? Why not give pen and paper (or online journalling) a chance.
