31 Journal Prompts for Cultivating Optimism, Faith, & Hope (March)

The days are drawing near springtime and for some it’s finally the beginning of the year. Spring is my favorite season as well as Fall simply because they are not so extreme as the other two. This month as we carry on with the time change, it is also quite fitting to take the opportunity to renew our thought patterns.

Out with the old and in with the new!

It’s much like spring cleaning really. How much cobweb and dust have you allowed your mind to tolerate? If the Winter blues hit you hard and by God’s Grace, you still have a fighting spirit, welcome to your awakening! Yes, you fought and you also hibernated. But right now is your second wake-up call. Be the one that initiates the change, in time before time leaps over you and turns into wasted opportunity. Like what I did there? 😉

If you’ve been productive, congratulations! Your practicality is crucial to this world. But really, how is your soul? Is it being nurtured because you’re practical about it?

If this message is speaking to your heart, then I hope these 31 questions will also make their way in there, that they may altogether uplift your mind, soul, and spirit in Jesus’ name.

Song of Solomon 2:11-13 See! The winter is past; the rains are over and gone. Flowers appear on the earth; the season of singing has come, the cooing of doves is heard in our land. The fig tree forms its early fruit; the blossoming vines spread their fragrance. Arise, come, my darling; my beautiful one, come with me.”

Hosea 6:3 Let us acknowledge the LORD; let us press on to acknowledge him. As surely as the sun rises, he will appear; he will come to us like the winter rains, like the spring rains that water the earth.”

Colossians 3:2-5 Set your minds on things above, not on earthly things. For you died, and your life is now hidden with Christ in God. When Christ, who is your life, appears, then you also will appear with him in glory. Put to death, therefore, whatever belongs to your earthly nature: sexual immorality, impurity, lust, evil desires and greed, which is idolatry.

Ephesians 4:22-32 You were taught, with regard to your former way of life, to put off your old self, which is being corrupted by its deceitful desires; to be made new in the attitude of your minds; and to put on the new self, created to be like God in true righteousness and holiness.

Philippians 4:8 Finally, brothers and sisters, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable—if anything is excellent or praiseworthy—think about such things.

Makes Sense to Me

“Here’s to the crazy ones. The misfits. The rebels. The troublemakers. The round pegs in the square holes. The ones who see things differently. They’re not fond of rules. And they have no respect for the status quo. You can quote them, disagree with them, glorify or vilify them. But the only thing you can’t do is ignore them. Because they change things. They push the human race forward. And while some may see them as the crazy ones, we see genius. Because the people who are crazy enough to think they can change the world, are the ones who do.”

– Steve Jobs

Therefore, I urge you, brothers and sisters, in view of God’s mercy, to offer your bodies as a living sacrifice, holy and pleasing to God—this is your true and proper worship. Do not conform to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God’s will is—his good, pleasing and perfect will.

Romans 12:1-2

“Think differently. Stand out. Crazy is okay, but get crazy in love with God, so you can change the world. Your genius is according to His will.”

“Strive not to be a success, but rather to be of value.”

Albert Einstein

Let not steadfast love and faithfulness forsake you; bind them around your neck; write them on the tablet of your heart. So you will find favor and good success in the sight of God and man.

Proverbs 3:3-4

“Valuable people strive to love.”
