    A journal is an adjustment, changing the trial balance, to the final position that will be shown in the accounts (P&L and BS - or apparently, Income Statement and Statment of Financial Position, same difference).

    If you have problems with it go back to basics of double entry
    A debit is an expense in the P&L or an asset in the BS
    A credit is an income in the P&L or a liability in the BS

    The bottom half of the balance sheet is the opposite to the top:
    A Debit is a reduction of Equity in the BS
    A credit is an increase in Equity in the BS

    Find one concept of these that you feel happy with, and use that as an anchor for working out the rest of the journal.
