Scripture Journaling

If you have never done the Scripture Journaling with us, we are glad you are going to jump in! It has been a fantastic way to slow down and take one or two verses at a time and examine them deeper.

If you enjoy this time in the Word, we would love to hear how this practice has benefited your life. Leave us a comment by visiting here.
 
How do I journal the Scripture?

Take the scripture, write it out in your journal daily, and meditate on the words. You may want to choose a few verses from the month to commit to memory. You can also go more in-depth in your study this month by asking yourself some questions:

    • What does this passage say about God?
    • Cross-reference the passage. What do other scriptures say?
    • Write down how the Lord is speaking to you through His Word.
    • Write down any questions you have for the Lord about the passage.

Our prayer is that you will truly understand that the Lord deeply cares for you through studying how we can endure because of Jesus Christ.

Spiritual Warfare

Spiritual warfare is something that all Christians experience during their walk with the Lord. 2 Corinthians 10 tells us that we don’t wage war with our flesh but instead use the weapons the Lord gives us to battle the enemy.

We are not strong enough to walk through life alone. There will be times when we feel weary and weak because of our circumstances. God offers to come alongside us and give us the strength only He can provide.

God Is My Strength

We are not strong enough to walk through life on our own. There will be times when we feel weary and weak because of our circumstances. God offers to come alongside us and give us the strength only He can provide.

His shoulders are strong enough to carry the weight of everything going on in our lives. Look to Him when you need strength, not to yourself or others. This month, we will be reminded just how strong God is and how we can have peace through His strength.

Waiting on God

Waiting on God is trusting His plan and purpose even when we can’t see physical evidence of things changing. It is the definition of faith. God’s timing is different than our timing. That can be hard to remember when we are in the middle of waiting.

This month we will look at what it looks like to wait on the Lord. We should fix our eyes on the Lord at all times, even when His timing does not match with our timing. Our prayer is that your faith muscle will be strengthened as you spend time this month looking at these scriptures.

No Greater Love

There is no greater love than the love God has for you. Love can be conditional on earth, but God’s love for you is unconditional.

There is nothing you can do that will take it away. Through His love for us, we can experience joy in the difficulties of life and in the blessings He gives us. There is no love stronger than God’s love for you, and that love was shown in the sacrifice of His son for you.

This month, we will be reminded how powerful God’s love is through scripture journaling.

Overcoming Fear

As we start a new year, we want to focus on scriptures that will help us overcome fear.

Joy

We will soon be celebrating the birth of Jesus Christ. The Messiah has been born! Doesn’t that bring you great joy? It can be easy to get so wrapped up in the earthly side of Christmas that we forget to find joy in the greatest gift God sent us.

True joy comes from knowing God and abiding in Him. This month, we will challenge you to shift your focus and find joy, even if this is a difficult season. Take time to let the passage for that day penetrate your heart. Find awe in God this season.

Gratitude

The month of November is a great time to slow down and reflect on the many things we have to be thankful for in our lives. For our scripture journaling this month, we will look at gratitude and journal scriptures that will help us put this into practice.

Gratitude is more than just an emotion like happiness or sadness. Believers must consciously understand that even in times of hardship, we have many things to be grateful for. An attitude of gratitude can help you grow closer to God and deepen that relationship by recognizing the many blessings the Lord has given us, starting with our salvation, and choosing to focus on the good in our lives.

Perseverance

We know that life can be challenging at times. Different trials and hardships come our way, but God calls us to persevere. The word perseverance is defined as doing something despite the obstacles. Are you facing an obstacle today?

God is faithful to fulfill His promises, but our job is to remain faithful to Him and persevere. One way to do that is by remembering how God has been faithful in the Bible and our lives.  We can find many scriptures that talk about people who have persevered despite obstacles, and many are pillars of the faith. This month, we will look at some of those passages.

Focus

A relationship with Jesus is not a sprint but a lifelong commitment to stay focused on what He has called us to. So often, as believers, we can lose sight of the eternal results we are promised.

Don’t forget that this world is not our home. Many distractions in our world today can compete with our focus. We need to remove these distractions and keep a clear vision of Jesus. This month, we will look through scriptures that tell us why focus is important and how we can stay focused on Jesus Christ and not our circumstances.

Repentance

The theme of repentance is found throughout the pages of the Bible. True repentance is not just turning away from sin but experiencing a complete change of direction in your life. Regret and apologies are not enough.

True repentance is important in our lives, but through understanding this act, we can also understand forgiveness when others repent of wrongdoings. This month we will look through scriptures that will help draw your attention to repentance.

Freedom in Christ

As followers of Christ, we have freedom from the penalty of sin because of the work Jesus Christ did on the cross for our sins. We are free from the punishment that we deserve. That freedom can sometimes be hard to wrap our minds around.

Scriptures of Encouragement

Could you use some encouragement today? Everyone is going to have a season of discouragement and doubt. The enemy wants us to get stuck there and doubt the truth of God’s Word. The best way to defeat the enemy is with the Bible. That is why this month, we will focus on scriptures of encouragement.

I don’t know if you have ever tried to memorize some of the scriptures we journal each month, but this is a great time to start. When you begin to feel discouraged, you will have the tool to shift your focus.

God's Grace

God’s grace is evident all over our lives. We are sinners who deserve death, yet Jesus took that penalty for us when He died for our sins. God’s grace chooses to bless us with the option of eternal life with Him if we will surrender our lives.

It is hard to really wrap your head around that type of grace. We deserve one thing yet God gives us the gift of something else through His son. For our scripture journaling this month, we challenge you to slow down in your Bible study and look closely at specific passages related to God’s grace.

Knowing God

Winning Over Worry
