to be a short blog post, but I went through my scripture journal that I keep, and here are just a few of many scriptures that I have noted the importance of for keeping a journal!
Sorry, I haven't linked them. I'm in a hurry. If you want to seach the scriptures yourself you can go to
"I cannot write the hundredthpart of the things of my people."
Oh but as I journal I surely try to write more than a hundredth part. Too many details. I need to work on that! 23 August 2017. Christine
Mosiah 1:5"were it not for these things, which have been kept and preserved by the hand of God, that we might read and understand of his mysteries, and have his commandments always before our eyes, that even our fathers would have dwindled in unbelief, and we should have been like"
This is yet another reminder to me of the power of the word. See Alma 31:5. It also teaches me just how influential words that I feel to write with help of the Spirit can be. I'm thankful for my gift of writing, and how I can help strengthen the children of God through words I feel inspired to write.
"I speak unto you as the voice of one crying from the dust: Farewell until that great day shall come."
I always find such reflections interesting because he knows that his scripture keeping (a.k.a. journaling) was going to be read by those of us at a later time. As I journal I try to keep that in mind, and I try to decide what will be if most worth, though I'm sure I'm not always successful! 24 May 2017
"And it came to pass that he began to speak to his people from the tower; and they could not all hear his words because of the greatness of the multitude; therefore he caused that the words which he spake should be written and sent forth among those that were not under the sound of his voice, that they might also receive his words."
