None of us can ever be fully pleasing to God if we are not willing to be well taught in His Word. ~ A.W. Tozer
I had quit trying to engage God’s Word on my own.
Like an infant expecting to be fed by someone else I only opened my Bible on Sunday at church. I’d sit there waiting for the Pastor to feed me the Word. My Bible would then sit on a shelf, neglected and dusty for the next six days. Can you relate?
When we neglect to open God’s Word, we forfeit the benefits of a full, intimate relationship with Him.
I forfeited the full benefits of KNOWING God the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit. I was spiritually malnourished, until I started writing in my Bible and the Word made it’s way deep into my heart and mind.
In 2016 I discovered Bible Journaling and the visual learner in me jumped right in.
Bible journaling with art materials opened up an even deeper level of understanding for me. It has helped me to remember scriptures more easily, it has forced me to slow down long enough to write out prayers and document what I’m learning. Bible Journaling has helped me connect with, apply, and remember God’s Word in a very personal way.
My journaling Bible has become a sort of spiritual diary #MyBibleMyDiary and it goes with me just about everywhere I go. The Bible is God’s love letter to me. My Journaling Bible is my response.
My journaling Bible has traveled with me on family vacations up and down the East Coast, and has even been with me in the mission fields of Peru.
My journaling Bible gives me a place to document what God is revealing to me as I spend time in His Word. It gives me direction and has helped me to remember that I am loved, approved, chosen and purposed. I’m documenting my relationship with Him, writing more intentional prayers, and recording all the incredible lessons I’m learning along the way.
My hope in sharing my journaling process is simple. I hope to encourage you to engage God’s word on a deeper level, help you explore your creative side, and discover the truth about who God is, who He says you are SO THAT you can live out your purpose anchored to the truth of the gospel.
