I geeked out so much I couldn't decide what to use it for. Nothing seemed "special" enough. (Yes, I'm silly.) Finally I decided on an idea I'd been wanting to do for a long time but had never gotten around to: a prayer journal.
I'd been struggling with prayer for a long time. I can't focus or I forget what I wanted to say. I don't mean little "thank you" prayers throughout the day, but a really intentional, focused time of prayer. It was a real challenge.
So I decided to try a prayer journal. And sure enough, instantly I thought, "Why didn't I try this before???" I have always expressed myself better on paper then out loud. Why would prayer be any different?
It's made such a change for me. I'm able to have a meaningful conversation with God every night before bed, and it's given me such peace and stability. And because I'm taking my time and writing things down, I can better remember about praying for others, too.
Anyway, I'm thrilled. And since we're in the final week of Doctor Who, I thought I'd share that with you. :)
