“Journaling, the writing out of our prayers and God’s answers, provides a great new freedom in hearing God’s voice.” Dr. Mark Virkler
Then Yahweh answered me and said, ‘Write the vision down, inscribe it on tablets to be easily read. (Habakkuk 2:2; NJB)
How would you describe your life purpose?
As you undoubtedly know by now, Dr. Jerry Graham and I are teaming up to do a 5-week, 35-day on-line course in journaling with a special emphasis on understanding your life purpose or destiny. This is an exciting combination of two of the most significant learning experiences I’ve been blessed with in my life, i.e., journaling as a means of engaging in a two-way dialog with God, and coaching with a specific emphasis on the “discovery” of one’s life purpose and destiny.
The combination makes perfect sense. There is a line in a fantastic movie that Jerry and Sharon rented last Friday night entitled “Bella.” (If you haven’t seen it…by all means plan to do so!) The line went something like this…”If you want to make God laugh, tell Him your plans.” (A little Google research shows that the line was not original to the movie, but Jerry still highly recommends the movie.) Anyway, wouldn’t it make far more sense to ask God about His plans for you? Yes, but…God doesn’t talk to me. Or does He?
Over 25 years ago, Jerry was taught to journal as a means of hearing God’s voice by Dr. Mark Virkler, who has since become a good friend and ministry colleague. Mark developed a seminar that he continues to teach to this day around the world, called “Communion with God.” Highly acclaimed, the seminar is best described by Tommy Reid, Senior Pastor of Full Gospel Tabernacle in Orchard Park, NY when he wrote, “The problem [that keeps most Christians from an active prayer life], I believe, is not commitment or lack of desire. The problem is rather the monotony of the prayer life itself. One hardly desires to carry on a monologue. It is understandably ‘boring’ to talk to anyone who fails to talk back. Thus our prayer lives are plagued by an improper understanding of biblical prayer.”
Link that perception of journaling as a dialogue with God with a theology that is founded on the notion that God designed each of us for a specific purpose and, toward that end, fully equipped us with all the gifts, talents, temperament, and opportunities to fully fulfill that purpose and I believe you begin to see the potential impact this on-line course could have on your life.
It’s not too late to join Jerry and me on one of the introductory journaling webinars and learn more about what we’ve got planned. Take a step toward discovering and fulfilling YOUR destiny and REGISTER TODAY for one of our FREE webinars titled “UNCOMMON Journaling for Breakthroughs!”

Bill Gates (Microsoft) says, “If we don’t act on a good idea within 24 hours, we are less than 50% likely to ever act on it. If we haven’t acted on it inside of days, then we are less than 2% likely to ever act on it.”
Yahweh, we praise You as the God who speaks frequently to Your children. Yeshua, You say, “My sheep hear My voice, and I know them, and they follow Me.” (John 10:27) Fill each of us with the desire to hear Your voice clearly and the desire to discover the purpose You had in mind when we were so “fearfully and wonderfully made.” It’s in Your holy and precious name, Yeshua, we pray and give You glory. Amen and hallelujah!
