to be a short blog post-- I'm in a hurry to finish my college assignments.
But I just through my scripture journal that I keep in order to remember thougths and impressions I have as I read. Here are just a few of many scriptures that I have noted the importance of, as it pertains to keeping a journal!
1 Nephi 1:
"I make a record (journal)
of my proceedings in my days"
Why do you keep a journal?
Why don't you keep a journal?
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!

could have remembered all these things,
to have taught them to his children,
except it were for the help of these plates;"
"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."
