Spiritual Direction Thoughts
Providence Connected Vol. 1


Journaling is one of the most effective practices for experiencing and drawing close to God as we share our hearts and listen. It allows to us pay attention to what God is doing in our lives and deep within us, helping us make sense of our story in light of God’s love for us, which brings emotional and spiritual healing. Here are two simple guidelines:

  1. Don’t worry about spelling or grammar (there are no rules in journaling).
  2. Be authentic.

Practice Journaling Using Psalm 91 & the Steps Below

  • Relax your body and take several slow, deep breaths as you settle yourself in God’s presence.
  • Ask God for the grace to know and feel His love for you throughout this exercise.
  • Read the psalm slowly, allowing it to speak to your heart. Read the psalm a second time, noticing what draws your attention. Write down the word, phrase, or image that stands out to you most, touching your heart. You might do this for each stanza of the psalm, making a list of the words, phrases, or images.
  • Prayerfully meditate on what you have written for a moment and then journal about how the words, phrases, or images speak to you or intersect with your life right now.
  • Let your journaling become an honest conversation with God as you share from your heart and listen for what God has to say in response. What do you sense is God’s message to you? How might God be inviting you to respond?
