Reasons To Have A Prayer Journal
Below are the reasons that God helped move me pass the confusion and struggle of everyday life and stresses into ‘His light of clarity’. It helped soften my heart and put my life in perspective. It help see why I was running away from God...and it help me mend that relationship with Him. It made me stronger to Run the Race with Jesus!! See, when we accept Jesus in our lives, we are given the task to grow in our faith. The process of maturing in our faith takes time, but daily commitment and service produce maturity. When we are mature in our faith, we are not easily swayed or shaken by temptation of worldly concerns.
