“Any fool can know. The point is to understand.”
― Albert Einstein
I once knew scripture, memorized verses and was familiar with the stories but I didn’t necessarily understand how the Word of God should inform my everyday life. Maybe you can relate? I didn’t know why I wasn’t connecting with scripture until I brought my colored pens and post-its into my bible. Something clicked. Then I discovered Bible Journaling and that’s when Bible Study became FUN!
While we are all made in God’s image and made with purpose, we all learn in different ways. Bible study is no exception. What would your life look like if you could personally connect with the Word? What would change?
According to Fleming and Mills there are three basic learning styles – (VAK) Visual (V), Auditory (A), Kinesthetic (K). Some of us learn and retain information faster by seeing words and pictures (V), others learn by listening (A), while others need a hands-on experience (K) to really process information.
How do you best learn?
Knowing your learning style might help you understand the Word, apply the Word and intentionally believe God’s Word–the truth about who He is and who we are in Him.
Bible journaling might help you approach the Word of God differently. I wonder if Bible journaling has taken off for people who once declared they couldn’t study the Bible on their own.
I believe Bible journaling gives us all new opportunities to experience scriptures in different ways since there’s an opportunity for Visual, Auditory and Kinesthetic learners to approach and experience the Word.
