Well, studies show that even "non-writer-types" benefit from journaling their thoughts when they realize no one is grading or editing them.
Even if you throw your journal away when you're finished, journaling can help you honestly process your thoughts with God.
God welcomes us to be honest and open with Him:
“Come now, and let us reason together,” Says the LORD…Isaiah 1:18, NASB
And studies suggest that journaling:
- Strengthens immune cells
- Decreases symptoms of asthma and arthritis
- Lowers stress
- Gives us insight from both our analytical left brain and creative/ intuitive right brain
- Allows us to think deliberately instead of randomly
- Records our life’s patterns, processes and solutions
- Is a reference for future problems
- Draws us into conversation with God
