The Intentionality of Journaling

The dictionary defines intentionality as “the fact of being deliberate or purposive.”

When we want to buy a house we are intentional about making our credit look good. When we want a job we are intentional about how our resume looks and how we prepare for the subsequent interview.

Almost everything we want in life we go about intentionally making sure we do everything in our power to get it. The same applies to our Christian walk. Nobody wakes up and is able to be like Christ no matter how many times they are dipped in the water(baptism)It takes a conscious effort in intentionality to get out there and be the light In The Dark

According to 2 Corinthians 10:5 “We demolish arguments and every pretension that sets itself up against the knowledge of God, and we take captive every thought to make it obedient to Christ.” Obedience to Christ is to follow His commandments and believe in Him. No matter what comes your way, believe in Jesus.

This brings me to today’s post, The Intentionality of Journaling. As we discussed last week a journal helps you share your thoughts through written word, gives you a visual, can be used as testimony( when you see what God has done before).To intentionally capture our thoughts like the verse says, you have to train them.

That’s where the Confident Expectations Prayer Journal comes in handy. It is filled with intentional verses, songs and quotes that will help you train your thoughts on the promises of God. Specifically, it contains

🖊 40 days of praise/worship song suggestions and hopeful promises that will help you strategically defeat the enemy’s plan of sowing doubt in your dark place.
🖊 It also provide space for you to write personalized prayers.
🖊 Record your testimonies in accordance to the fulfillment of His promise.
The Confident Expectations Journal helps you tap into and memorize those promises of God in #confidentexpectation of good things to come. God’s Light Opens Windows In The Dark. Get Ready to G.L.O.WInTheDark

#WriterWednesday: 5 Tips for When You Don’t Feel Like It

I want to get the book done but just don’t feel like it. Sound familiar? Or are you at the point where you can’t stand the characters and wish magically the book would write itself already.

Here are 5 tips for when you don’t feel like it
🖊 Show up! Until you do nothing happens.
🖊 Reward yourself. I am an avid reader and a one click addict. So I have stacks of books but I set them down as rewards for getting some writing done. Then reward myself with a book and a mug of tea. #bliss

🖊 Change the scene. I write anywhere in my house… Kitchen waiting on the water to boil for my Poundo( A Nigerian delicacy) or Indomie(Noodles)…Dinning, couch, bed anywhere.

🖊 Set a hard word count goal. I only do this when I’m really not feeling it. That way I’m forced to do what needs to be done.

🖊 Dress up. Staying in your pjs May be cool and all but gets old. Take off the bonnet, fix your hair and hit those keys.

Happy Writing!!

How do you get motivated to write even when you don’t feel like it?

WriterWednesday: Personality on the Page

wed20So I saw this quote by Tim Gordon a film critic and it resonated with me down to my marrow.
My tag line is #fusingfaithromanceandAfricanspice for a reason. It encompasses all that is in me… My personality. I love talking about my faith, I’m a sucker for a happily ever after and no matter where I live, I’m a #Naijachick through and through so when I decided to write that was the only thing that could come outta me. It’s my heart.

Are you feeling stuck? What stories are in your heart to write? There are only so many plots but what comes out of your heart makes it yours.
