May showers bring not just flowers but also a chance for inward growth! As the world bursts with color and life, it’s the perfect time to cultivate your inner garden. Journaling is a powerful tool for reflection, inspiration, and connecting with yourself and your faith.

This month, I’ve curated a list of 15 journaling prompts to guide you on your May journey. Whether you’re seeking a deeper connection with God, reflecting on the changing seasons, or reminiscing about cherished memories, these prompts will spark your creativity and help you blossom on the page.

So, grab your favorite pen and notebook, settle into a quiet corner, and let’s explore the beauty of May through the lens of journaling!

  1. What Bible verse are you reflecting on this month?
  2. How can you show God’s love to someone this month?
  3. What personal goals do you want to complete this month?
  4. What outdoor activity are you most looking forward to this month?
  5. Create a poem or short story inspired by the beauty of blooming flowers.
  6. Describe your ideal May day in vivid detail.
  7. What traditions or activities did your family enjoy during May?
  8. What has surprised you most about yourself so far this year?
  9. Plan a summer bucket list filled with activities you’re excited about.
  10. What’s your favorite way to spend a warm May evening?
  11.   Is there something you need to release or forgive this month? Write a letter to yourself or the situation, then symbolically “let it go” by burning the letter (safely, of course!) or rip it up and throw it away.
  12. Take a walk outside or sit on your porch and focus on spring’s sights, sounds, and smells. Then, capture them in your journal using descriptive language.
  13. What is a recurring thought or feeling you’ve had this month? Explore its root and see where it leads you.
  14. How has your faith helped you navigate a recent challenge?
  15. List three things you’re grateful for this May.

May your journaling experience be filled with moments of insight, discovery, and personal growth. Wishing you a fulfilling and enriching journaling experience that brings you joy and clarity.

  2. Paula,
    I loved your prompts as they really make one think and can help get your mind off things. I just may use this list for focusing on other things other than the loss of my husband…I am trying to find my new normal now that we had Joe’s funeral service… Thanks for stopping by!!
