Review 2021: Blog and prayer journaling
This post is part of my Series: Blog and prayer journaling season of 2021. I will be writing about how consistent mornings paid off well and how they accelerated me into a new season.

The impact of blogging and Journaling on my journey
Morning routine! What a special topic, but also an area many are robbed of. Why? There are many reasons how we can miss out on the blessing of this time of the day, but I will share with you my experience.
Now , lets do some hurdles!
I jumped over the hurdle of laziness and inconsistency and pursued my mornings this past year! I woke up at the sound of my alarm and many times it sounded off as I was already sipping my coffee.
“A little sleep, a little slumber, a little folding of the hands to rest“Proverbs 24:33
What I loved most of the mornings is the quietness, the quiet voice of the Holy Spirit, putting on the armor of God, and sitting down with my prayer journal and the Bible. Oh, and poetry! During these mornings Holy Spirit inspired me to write poetry.
An basic overview of my mornings
- Getting up at 4h30 am
- A glass of water(hot or tap)
- Black coffee
- Listening for the direction of the Holy Spirit
- Submitting to God in prayer and putting on the Armor of God.
- Scripture reading and writing
- Prayer journaling
- Praying in tongues
- Writing down the prompts of the Holy Spirit.
- A cup of tea in my garden
- Getting ready for work
The Holy Spirit also taught me about different morning routines, without me knowing this at first.
Why changing your morning routines?
To avoid the trap of routine!This is a very important topic and will be dealt with in another post.
A morning routine is suppose to strengthen us for the weights of the day, to supply a structure to carry these weights, to seek direction , to prepare and most importantly for me: to connect and submit before God.
How do I know where to start during my mornings?
Honestly, I do not! This is why I start my week with my Monday’s encrypted, writing a dedication to offer God my time, days, activities, etc., and giving the Holy Spirit full access to my week. I started to lean on the Holy Spirit and allowed His counsel during my prayer times, especially during my mornings.
“Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding…”
Morning prayers enabled me to build up enough momentum to make the hurdles seem like child’s play! ( Eventually)These are only a few :👇, don’t forget laziness🤭.
Staying fit and on top of your mornings requires discipline and practice because these hurdles might try to trick you!
What hurdles have you been attempting the past year? How did it go?
Whatever the outcome; remember were still in the race. We’re running the Victory race, after all!
A blessed year of Acceleration to you! Buckle up! Sign up! Prepare!
“No, in all these things we are more than conquerors”Romans 8:37
