I hope you found several promises in scripture that ring in your heart. There are endless ways to art journal, but I want to help you in your journey to cope and to heal. I want this to be your book of thanksgiving, a record of the blessings in your life - of gratitude with attitude! When you really start to look for God's blessings, you find they are sprinkled throughout your day. I find it much more powerful to journal the positives in my life rather than the problems. I know there are people who will disagree with me, but I can only share what has helped me. It's OK to say, "God, I'm struggling here!" but don't leave it at that. Finish off with something like, "...but I know You are answering my prayers, and I am so thankful!"
Find things you've taken for granted - sunrises and sunsets, sounds in nature, and those little things you wrote off as a happy coincidence (which I don't believe in, by the way). If you are child in God's family, it is no coincidence! God's word says He shows favor to his children.
For You, O , will bless the righteous;
(Organizational update for those who like to know what's coming...my plans to post three times a week were too lofty. Life has other plans. I have the text, but I need time to create the art, so posts will likely appear once a week.)
