I have neither, so my journaling is limited to now-and-then semi-outlining only-when-particularly-inspired journaling.
Here's how it went recently:
As a missionary preacher's kid, homeschooled by a logical, orderly mom, I learned outlining early on and it has helped me to notice a lot of gems in the Scriptures. (I just wish I had learned more of her orderliness.)
It is encouraging and strengthening to see where we were ("there but for the grace of God go I"), who God is, was, and always will be, and who we are now because of what He did for us as found in Ephesians 2.
I can easily refer back to this page when I need a synopsis of this chapter, or a pick-me-up when I think I'm worthless, or a multitude of reasons to praise God. All without having to be a creative genius. Heh.
I encourage you to go have a deeper look at that chapter.
