My Book of Remembrance

Malachi 3:16 (New King James Version)
16 Then those who feared the LORD spoke to one another,
And the LORD listened and heard them;
So a book of remembrance was written before Him
For those who fear the LORD
And who meditate on His name.

As I want to lead our congregation into the life-giving discipline of reading God's Word and journaling each day I was caught by this verse. I know that it means a "scroll" was was made containing the names of those who feared the Lord. But I want a "book of rememberance" for myself; a journal of the conversations God has with me, a reference to learn from and to refer to, mostly a way to remember what God is speaking to and shaping in me. This book can be a point of conversation with other people who fear Him and we can share our learnings together, meditating on His name.

As I conclude another year of reading the scripture through, I'm grateful for the way the Lord uses his word to speak to me and transform me. Lord, thank you for speaking and listening.
