Remember His marvelous works which He has done, His wonders, and the judgments of His mouth.
1 Chronicles 16:12
Psalm 77:11-12 ( http://www.biblegateway.com/passage/?search=Psalm%2077:11-12&version=NKJV )
You take a trip — a trip that you have been anticipating for a long time. You pack your essentials: clothes, toiletries, maybe even a camera. But you forgot to bring a notepad and pencil to keep a journal of what happened through your thoughts. Tragically, your camera breaks a day into the trip. Far too soon you realize it’s almost time to return home to your normal life and to leave the best trip of your life. The one thing you brought along to remember the trip is no longer functioning. Now you wish you had brought a backup plan — a journal.

Journaling is a good way to remember the details of a special vacation, but it is also a wonderful way to recall God‘s faithfulness.
The Bible is filled with instructions for us to make remembering things or people a high priority. “But recall the former days in which, after you were illuminated, you endured a great struggle with sufferings” (Hebrews 10:32). A journal is a great way to keep track of what happens daily in your walk with God and to record your prayers and thoughts. It’s a way to remember God’s words to you that day, and to bring to mind His goodness and mercy when you recollect that day.
Recall God’s faithfulness — write it down!
