1 Chronicles 28:19 (KJV)
“All this, said David, the Lord made me understand in writing by his hand upon me, even all the works of this pattern.”
I was always interested in writing. I remember writing stories and poems as a kid. When I was a little older, the “in” thing was to have a diary. So I started one, never realizing the impact it would have on me.
When I first started writing, it was silly stuff about what had happened at school or something like that. That all changed when my world was turned upside down. My parents got divorced when I was twelve, and my whole life changed.
My journal entries became more intense as I was struggling with all the emotions. My teenage years were filled with a lot of mistakes made while searching for love. I desperately wanted to be loved, to feel loved, that I travel down many wrong roads. One of the only steady comforts I had was my writing.
As an adult, I started the journaling journey once again. Looking back on my old journals taught me a lot about the person I had become. I will talk more about that next week.
