I started reading through the Bible for the second time a couple of years ago and decided I’d write down my favorite verse from each chapter as I went. I try to read a chapter + journal every night, so thus far I’ve made it to Psalms and filled up nearly six journals! Sometimes I write the verses in beautiful hand lettering and other times… well, I just write them. XD
I’ve really enjoyed this method so far! It helps you slow down and think about the verse or verses, plus it’s fun to look back on the notebooks you’ve filled. Speaking of that, I thought I’d show you guys some of my favorites today. 🙂 Hopefully you enjoy the tour and maybe gain a little inspiration for your own journaling!
One of my goals or resolutions for this year was to start and keep a Bible journal. So far, so good! I usually read a chapter of the Bible one night and journal my favorite verse from that chapter the next night. Would you like to take a peek inside? Let me say in advance that some of the chapters were harder to journal than others, so some of the verses are a little more abstract. XD But I’m still glad I’m doing a verse from every chapter because it challenges me to look harder at each verse – and it will be really neat to look back on when I’m finished.
I use an erasable black gel pen for journaling. (You can see them on Amazon here.) I got it for a Christmas present and I love it! It’s very useful for things like this. 🙂 And yes, it really does erase! It erases just as good or better than a pencil does, but you do have to apply more pressure than erasing with a pencil.
Anyway, let’s get started. 🙂
And that’s it so far! Which verse/page was your favorite? Do YOU have a Bible Journal? If you do, what are your thoughts on it?
P. S. Goodness, I have so many post ideas! Which of these sounds most exciting to you? A room update (we’ve added some pretty new decorations in our bedroom), another writing tips post, or a random/photography post? I have a bunch more ideas too… XD
