If you haven’t tried Bible Journaling, you should.
- I find I’m spending more time in the Word.
- I recall Scripture more easily.
- I crave time with my Bible.
I’ve been doing Bible Journaling now for several months. One of the things I’ve been working on is LETTERING.
I think it’s exciting when you come to a favorite scripture, and it’s at the end of the book. Sometimes there is a larger space there – at least in my 2-column ESV Journaling Bible. Here I was journaling Joshua 24:15, “As for me and my house, we will serve the Lord.” I got my inspiration from a similar post on Facebook. I wish I’d made a note of the original artist. I wrote out the scripture and added a whimscal house.
Sometimes all I journal is the actual scripture. “For unto us a child is born.” I’m a huge fan of Handel’s Messiah, so this is one of my favorite passages.
I do fight perfectionism, but I’m working on that. For example, the last picture above is of Psalm 40:2. I put a ladder. However ladders would be used from INSIDE the pit to get yourself out. I realize that now, but at the time I didn’t think to draw a well or a crane or elevator where someone else was working from outside the pit to bring me up. Oh, I could cover it up, and someday I may. But for now, I know my INTENT was on target, so I’m going to leave it alone.
