Forty days and forty nights was an inspired thought during a lunch meeting with Dr. Luke. During our conversation I expressed how important it was for me to not go to bed without learning something new for the day. If I couldn’t think of anything that I learned new, it wasn’t unusual for me to look-up a new word in the dictionary; I just couldn’t rest without learning something new.
I love what David Neenan once said: “Power doesn’t come from what we know—it comes from what we need to learn.” While Dr. Luke and I were talking, I mentioned that he helped me with the idea of creating a daily journal or inspirational thought and publish it into a book. We should learn something new about Christ or the bible daily for daily living and growth. Imagine learning 365 new things about the bible every year, multiplied by 10 years!
My daily personal insights are intended to share what I learned on my journey with the thought you might start your own “journal of journey”. Before starting, I asked God to inspire me everyday with a new thought, insight, or inspiration of what He wanted me to learn for the day. This is a forty day journal, but I intend to continue with my journal as long as possible, God willing.
