praise journal

It's been a while since I've shared from my praise journal.  I haven't been doing much journaling lately because when I stay with one thing too long I suffer from burn-out.  I have to lay one activity down and go to another.  Things always cycle around and I'll be back to journaling one day soon.

True prayer is a spontaneous outpouring of honesty and need from the soul's foundation.  In calm times, we say a prayer.  In desperate times, we truly pray.
David Jeremiah

A humble person is not one who thinks little of himself, hangs his head, and says, "I'm nothing."  Rather, he is one who depends wholly on the Lord for everything in every circumstance.
David Wilkerson

There's absolutely nothing you're tempted to worry about that you won't be better off talking to God about instead.
Greg Laurie

God's blessings are dispersed according to the riches of His grace, not according the depth of our faith.
Max Lucado


  1. Wow... Each one of these spoke to me... or, convicted me. I 💜 when you share from your journal. Hugs to you from Tennessee.

  2. These are beautiful and reassuring quotes. Thank you so much for sharing. I wish you a very nice day.

  3. All wonderful quotes. I've been thinking lately of beginning my own praise journal. You have certainly inspired me with yours. Have a blessed dy.

  4. Oh oh...your talking to me, again. Lawdy, do I have issues, smiling. BUT, He knows that, doesn't He? Have a beautiful day friend.

  5. A good lesson for today Mary. Thank you.
    What a lovely idea your journal is and I am glad you shared it just when needed so much.
    Hugs to you my friend.

  6. Okay...I get it...Lord...You are talking to me today too...I'm kind of stuck right now...not following through with everything I think I should be doing...but PRAISING God is where I need to be focused...Thank you, Mary, for helping me over this hump today...Just what I needed!

  7. It is reassuring to know that we all experience those dry spells in our walk with the Lord. Thanks for sharing these quotes that are encouraging.

  8. Amen...all lovely... especially that last one!

  9. Great quotes and I especially relate to and agree with the one on worry. I truly don't worry anymore! Thanks for sharing these!!

  10. Mary, thank you so much for sharing a part of your Praise Journal. All of the quotes spoke to my heart, but especially the one by David Jeremiah on prayer. It is so so true...I've experienced it many times in my life as a Christian.

  11. I come here from Pam Steiner's blog. I believe you have given a pep talk to anyone who reads this entry. Peace to you and yours.
