Command 1 : Repent | Day 7

Write It Down!

How often have we heard these words "Write it down or you'll forget it"? If that is true for our daily efficiency, how much truer is it for the treasures of our experiences with God's Word?

One of the greatest heritages that you could pass on to your descendants is a written account of your walk with God. The struggles and trials that you experienced and the steps that you took to overcome them will be a tremendous resource to those who follow you.

You do not know what you are thinking until you write it down.

When you begin keeping a written record of your experiences, you will become much more alert to the people and events that affect your life. You will learn how to be precise with words and ideas. The result will be a greater ability to communicate truth with others, and this is an important foundation for daily success.

So, what should you include in your "daily success journal"? Here are some ideas:

  • How consistent were you able to be during this first week of meditation?
  • What hindered you from keeping Scripture before your mind?
  • What was your experience in meditating before going to sleep?
  • Did you have any unusual dreams?
  • How were you able to personalize the Scripture?
  • What practical applications have you applied from this command?
  • How has God blessed you or your family this week?

You might be encouraged to know that God is also writing a journal about you:

“Then they that feared the LORD spake often one to another: and the LORD hearkened, and heard it, and a book of remembrance was written before him for them that feared the LORD, and that thought upon his name” (Malachi 3:16).

Congratulations for completing your first week!

“Repent: for the kingdom of heaven is at hand” (Matthew 4:17).
