Here you’ll find my 31 days of Journaling Through Proverbs. There are 31 chapters in Proverbs and I spent one day on each chapter. I’ve posted my journal entry for that day.

These are my journal entries, not deep theological studies of the entire chapter. Each entry is simply what I received from the Lord for that day. I am drawn to a specific word, phrase or verse and it is there that I sense God speaking to me through His Word. Often it is exactly what I need to hear for that moment, but on some days it is a truth or revelation that I write down and can come back to later. I am always amazed how days, weeks or even months a situation will come up and I will find myself in a conversation and I am reminded of a previous journal entry; A truth God was speaking to me for the future, a word I didn’t even know I needed.

Set aside a little time for the next 31 days to Journal Through Proverbs. You can check out my journal entry each day and share in the comments below what God is speaking to you from that specific chapter. I love hearing from you and I can’t wait to read what you sense God is speaking to you!
