The Christian life is an upward journey. It is a journey with Christ on a daily basis. Journaling is a way to reflect on the journey we experience. This on-line journal contains a journal experience through the book of Matthew. It is a sample of the type of journaling you may do on your own as you open God’s word on a daily basis.

I have chosen to use four steps in scriptural journaling. These steps include: Passage, Points, Personalize, & Prayer.

Place: Find a quiet place with no distractions.
Prepare: Items you will need: a Bible, notebook, and pencil.
Journaling Steps

Passage – Read the scripture passage for the day.
Point – What are journey points this passage reveals?
Personalize – How will the scripture lessons impact your life?
Prayer – Write out your prayer of commitment to apply the lessons learned.

This comes from Wayne Cordeiro, the author of The Divine Mentor where he describes the purpose of daily Bible study and how to do it.

I would also encourage you to view his video below describing his journaling method.
