A spiritual journal is a record of the voice and activity of God in a Jesus-follower's life.

The journals I've read so far from my RMS students have been deep, clarifying, profound, beautiful, transparent, and agonizing in the sense of bringing grief and fear before the Lord. I am stunned by the honesty and trust exhibited in them.
My students are learning to abide in Christ (see John chs. 14-16) and hear from God. I've got to share one story from a student that caused me to laugh out loud tonight. Call this student Student X.
Student X was out praying for an hour or more. X is learning to listen while praying. "Prayer" is: talking with God about what we are doing together.
Student X had a vision, from God. In the vision God placed a white garment on X, like a piece of clothing.
X told God, "It's too big."
God then told X, "You'll grow into it."
I LOVE THAT! God has plans and purposes for Student X that are way beyond X's own talents and abilities and circumstances. As He does for all who embrace and love Jesus.
