Keeping a calendar of the ways that God showers us with surprises, answers to prayers, blessings and other really cool stuff is a great faith builder. It's documentation of His love. It documents our relationship and it becomes a treasure. It's a permanent record.
This documentation builds expectation. What will happen today? I jump out of bed wondering what treasure I will receive today. It makes us become more aware and conscious of His presence and His love. It helps us become more secure in His love and we know that His perfect love also chases our fear(s) away.
This is a mighty faith building tool. One that I had started in a smaller notebook years ago, but somehow, when writing morning pages took over my journals, I didn't isolate the events as well. Since my calendar/planner is always with me, it's easy to stop and record our blessings. I can't help but be overwhelmed and thankful.
How great is His love towards us? Let us count the ways!
