Take His Heart Ministries called it Flowcharting. It’s what happens when you try to compile things of the spirit to make sense of it. It could be a reflection about a word, an experience you encountered, things the Lord lead you to when you prayed, a Bible verse, a dream – yes the Lord can speak to people through dreams – in fact a lot of muslims turned to Christ through dreams (in fact, I get rebuked at times through dreams when I was crazy into worldly stuffs like video games and not seeking Him), a vision – certain people have them, etc.
Under normal circumstances, whenever we receive something, we would often just reflect upon it and just forget it. Some people write them in a note and just shelf them, never to be reviewed again. Flowchart helps us keep track of them. But the problem with how I flowchart or some people I knew, is that flowchart can become very long and hard to read. This is especially true if you copy everything word per word and glue them together. It reads like dirty and unpolish diary.
While praying a month ago I think, I learned that it’s much better if you could summarize each notes and just reference them instead. Notes can reference older notes or flowchart, that would feel clean and easier to review.
I have attached a PDF example of what I meant, but reference are mostly verses. I just made it up, I didn’t use a personal file, because well, it’s personal.
You can download my example here to get what I mean.
