Journaling to Jesus

A friend just told me she is going to start journaling to Jesus. I am so delighted because I have experienced such a closeness to Him from doing just that.  I have literally a foot-locker full of journals that are prayers and conversations with my Lord.  It brought me so near to Him.  I hope others will try this too.  God bless you.

  1. I’m always jealous of intensely religious people. I’ve gone to church in search of God. Actually I’ve gone to SEVERAL churches looking for him, and the right religion for me, but I failed. Don’t get me wrong, I believe in God, and Jesus Christ but I’m jealous that I don’t have that constant feeling of the Lord being with me. The one that makes people cry, or speak in tongues, or mention the Lord in some form or fashion to others several times a day.
    People say to just open your heart, accept Jesus into your heart, but I don’t know what that means really.
    I tend to run on my own religion of just trying to be a good person in general, by helping those who can’t help themselves, those down on their luck, and by far, helping animals. I just try not to suck as a human being, but I have my days.

    I’m sad that there are people who get to experience the true light of the Lord right down to their very core. I used to work with a woman like that, and loved her immensely.

    It’s just not fair.

  2. @Colors of Forgiveness I understand what you mean.. I think everyone was there at some point or another.. sometimes we seek God in the wrong places or, in other words, with our own view or prospective that might not necessarily be the right prospective.. we as human beings tend to look to what’s appearing on the surface..the outside part..which may not necessarily be the core and the real thing.. by that I mean religion or believing in God does not mean that people cry, speak in tongues or mention the Lord in some form or fashion.. I don’t think, this what Christianity or God is about.. sometimes we look at these things & think it could be a measurement of how much religion we have or don’t have.. we could go To churches and still can’t find God because we are looking at another direction like things, rituals or some sort of things that surround the religion not the core itself.. I’m not sure if I’m making sense or able to explain myself well enough.. I also don’t have it all right & trying to find my way too..

    You say you’ve gone to several churches looking for God and the right religion for you.. that’s part of the point.. sometimes when we’re looking for God we look for what we think fitting us, the “right for us”, I don’t think there is such “right for us” kind of thing when it comes to religion … God is God (the Father, the Son & the Holy Spirit) and there is only one religion & relationship with the one true God through His son Jesus Christ. This is not going to change to what we think to be right for us. If we believe in Him then that’s where our hearts should be and that’s the direction we need to look at.. Most of the known churches have the same core with only different views on few other things that aren’t mostly the core of the Christian religion..

    What we are probably searching for most of the time is the intimate relationship with God, experiencing Him & His Blessings in our lives, as you said wanting to feel Him being with you.. probably we all have that in some sort of way but we don’t always notice it.. why not try praying to Him about it.. maybe reading His Word (the Bible) too.. searching for answers of questions you may have..

    Trying to do good and be good is really great.. I think when people say to open our hearts & accept Jesus in our hearts.. it means that we need to know, believe & admit that Jesus is our Lord, who came to pay the price for our sins on the cross.. to believe in Him, of His forgiveness, His unconditional love for us.. He died for us when were still sinners.. to confess that no matter what we do we are insufficient on our own to redeem ourselves because no matter what we are sinners.. and we need His salvation..

    Please don’t think because I said all this, that it means I have it all right.. In fact, I don’t even know how I wrote all this, I’m usually not the person who can explain things about religion as I know I don’t have enough knowledge.. but I felt I really wish to help you.. I’m just like you.. seeking God too.. I believe that seeking the Lord is an on going process & desire that can’t be just accomplished one time.. we try to do so all the time and through that journey He will help us find Him.. He promised so.. “You’ll seek me & find me when you seek me with all your heart” Jeremiah 29:13

    If you would like, we can contact by email or so & I would try to send you some things that hopefully can help you through your journey.

  3. @ Colors of Forgiveness, I just read your comment. I had forgotten my entry made in February. I want to feel God like I used to. It’s puzzling because I am living a “better” life now than I was when I felt Him so near. When I was crying all the time and He comforted me. Keep on with your search. What Orchid Flower said is true. We will find Him when we search for Him with all our hearts. Ask Him to reveal Himself to you in a personal way. Tell Him you need more than theology, you need His touch, His Presence. Believe for it. Keep talking to Him, being totally honest. Jesus loves you and created you for Himself. You will feel it and know it for sure one day soon. I will be praying for you, and you can email me, too, if you want to talk. Love and blessings!
    PS – a very good book for you to read is The Beautiful Truth by Lynn Roberson, available at Amazon. It’s a whole different approach to living in the light of Jesus’ Love.
