JOURNAL PROMPTS: FEBRUARY


1 | “You change your life by changing your heart. ” | Experiencing the Heart of Jesus 109p What does that mean? Are there changes that need to take place in your heart?
Oh boy, this is what I needed to read. This is so true. I'm a person that if my heart is heavy my how life feels so run down. There is definitely changes that need to take place in my heart. I want to let go of past mistake from my side and other people too. The wrong that were down to me are so strong that I can see them affecting the way I live my life, but I don't know how to let that change in heart g

o. I have to pray more to God and let everything into His capable hands.
2 | What is/are your love languages? (Take a quiz here.) How does this show up in your life?
The score to the quiz shows that my love language is WORDS OF AFFIRMATION. 
Actions don't always speak louder than words. If this is your love language, unsolicited compliments mean the world to you. Hearing the words, "I love you," are important – hearing the reasons behind that love sends your spirits skyward. Insults can leave you shattered and are not easily forgotten. Kind, encouraging, and positive words are truly life-giving.
 This is so true, I love it when my husband out of the blue says something encouraging. Word are very important to me and I find it difficult to forget some words said in a moment of frustration. 


After my last book reading, during which my husband took the initiative to film me, I was so happy when at the end of the evening my husband said "I'm so proud of you. I really enjoyed your reading and I wanted you to read more." My was so much happy for hearing those words. 
3 | How do you feel about Valentine’s Day? 
I don't mind Valentine's Day but I don't make a big deal about it because a person should show love each single day. It shouldn't be a commercialized festivity to push you do something for your loved one. This year we spent a quality time with the family playing in the snow and it felt better than buying chocolate and something that will then end up in a drawer. Memories are more cherished.
4 | How well are you loving the people in your life?
I can improve on this. As a freelance writer and photographer, I'm learning to balance this new role I've added to motherhood and wifehood. I want to put into action plan that will allow me to spend quality time with the kids, my husband and to take care of my health.
5 | What broken pieces of your heart need healing so that you can live more freely?
Once up a time there lived a young naive bride in a bubble. The outside world was not so scary, she kept old friendship going. The husband made new friendship that the wife couldn't relate to. Her husband loved her, so she relied on that love to be confident in herself. 
One day a wicked witch came to take hold of her husband. The bride's world shuttered. Her confidence ran away from her, the husband became mean. He saw how the witch is confident and her ambitious. All qualities that the bride possessed but were overlooked by the husband because it was nothing that he could relate to. Her heart was broken into pieces. 
Thanks to her fairy godmother, the bride managed to save her marriage. But her bubble was forever broken. She lived cautiously on earth not believing in relationships. Years passed, her heart healed a bit more. She felt affection for her husband but not love. She started to love him a bit more after the birth of their first child. But the past peeked its head into the present and brought worse news. Her world flipped revealing the ugliness of life.  
Years and God are the only best cure to a broken and fearful heart.

  1. Experiencing the heart of Jesus. What does it mean to you... Oh boy! That question always does it to me. I always feel that love is the answer. To be honest, I'm probably going to sound a bit cliché here but love conquers all. Love wins! Always. So when I hear someone ask that question, I'm thinking...our hearts should be so filled with love, as God loves the church, as Jesus loves us all, the only thing we can do is focus on loving others as Christ loves us! If we were to open our hearts and forgive others freely as Christ has forgiven us, our world would be in a much better position that it is now. Ok let me simmer down. That question always lights a fire under me. I can't even begin to tell of the love of God and what it has done to me and for me. But...another time :)

    I can so relate to that short story! Well, not marriage but close enough. I was nearly brought to tears. It was both beautiful and heartbreaking but there's always a light at the end of the tunnel.

    Going to take that quiz!
