Time spent in the Word is quality time. Hearing from God in His Word helps us to understand who He is, align our hearts with His and gives us a roadmap for life. Everything that God wanted us to know is in His Word, and knowing and understanding what He says helps us to recognize His hand working in our lives and the lives of those around us.
But whether you are simple or elaborate in your Bible journaling, the time spent reflecting on God’s Word through written word, drawing, or even decorating pages keeps your mind focused on what you’ve read and helps both halves of your brain comprehend it.
Some journal by taking notes, some journal by drawing or painting.
There are stickers, stamps, stencils, templates special bibles and so much more at our disposal.
It doesn’t matter if you think you are a gifted artist or writer. All that matters is that you show up, ready to read the Word and really hear what God has to say to you.
The most important part of Bible journaling is really hearing what God is telling you through His Word. Personally, I learn by seeing and doing. So for me, I need to write out what I read, then write out a summary of what I learned. This helps my brain process what it is that I read.
My Bible is well loved. I carry it with me in a tote bag, I leave it on the kitchen counter. I write in it, highlight, stick notes in it. So much of what I’ve learned over the past 15 years is literally written in my beloved personal Bible.
But all of the years of great use have left it looking a little less than beautiful. But I don’t want to replace it because I don’t want to lose all of the history that I recorded on those pages!
