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.

June 2023

It has been said that you are either coming out of a hard time or preparing to enter a challenging season. Nobody is exempt. At some point in life, you will face difficulties.

The Bible has much to teach us about imitating Jesus as we walk through hardships. For the month of June, we will focus on scriptures that will strengthen your faith as you trust God in hard times.


May 2023

The book of Proverbs is a great book to study and remember that God cares for you and wants you to understand the wisdom that He makes available as a follower of Christ. This month, we will focus on scriptures of wisdom from the book of Proverbs.

Some people use Proverbs as part of their daily Bible reading. There are thirty-one chapters in Proverbs, which provides an easy way to read one Proverb each day. Every day this month, you can journal one scripture and read the rest of the Proverb.


April 2023

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.


March 2023

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.


February 2023

We are so excited about our Scripture journaling this month. We are getting back to the basics. When a person first becomes a follower of Christ, it is often suggested that they start their Bible reading journey in the book of John.

This is such a special book to be reminded of who Jesus is, His power, and the price He paid for us on the cross. Scripture journaling is a great way to slow down your Bible study and look closely at specific passages.


January 2023

Welcome to 2023! This is an excellent time of year to evaluate some of your personal goals surrounding how you study your Bible and make new priorities. You will never regret spending more time with the Lord.

This month we will look at scriptures that will help us meditate on God. Scripture journaling is an effective way to slow down your Bible study and look closely at specific passages.


December 2022

It doesn’t matter what you are facing today or tomorrow, you can have victory in Jesus! Are you walking around looking defeated or victorious? We have the tools we need to be victorious because of Jesus Christ.

This month we will spend time focusing on scriptures in the Bible that will help you shift your focus to a place of victory. We can overcome sin and struggles when we look towards the cross.


November 2022

Would you consider yourself to be a person that has a thankful heart? A person who has a thankful heart realizes the joy we can have because of Jesus. You look for the good around you and notice all that the Lord is doing in your life.

This month, we are going to spend time cultivating thankful hearts as we dig into what the Bible has to say about being thankful.  


October 2022

Saying yes to Christ requires faith and obedience. Walking in obedience reminds us of the work the Lord did on the Cross when He freely gave us the gift of salvation.

We will look at the word obedience and some of the many scriptures that will remind us how to walk in obedience with the Lord.


September 2022

It is important to have the right tools for a job. You wouldn’t try to hammer a nail into a wall using a spoon, would you? As Christians, we have been given the tools we need to be people of prayer. We have an excellent source of offensive and defensive tools through the Armor of God passage in Ephesians.

During the month of September, we will go through the Armor of God and journal verses that will help us better understand these powerful weapons.


August 2022

Does it ever feel like anxiety is weighing you down? It is essential to take care of not only your spiritual health but also your mental health. You can do many things when you are facing anxiety, such as seeking help from a licensed professional, getting adequate exercise, and making your spiritual health a priority.

The Bible has much to say about casting our cares on the Lord. For our focused Scripture Journaling this month, we will look at Scriptures about beating anxiety.


July 2022

For our July Scripture Journaling, we will look at the Bible verses dealing with patience. According to, patience is defined as an ability or willingness to suppress restlessness or annoyance when confronted with delay.

How is your patience level when you are faced with a delay? Do you find yourself growing impatient with the Lord and His timing?


June 2022

In the book of Galatians, Paul shares a list of behaviors that are evident when a believer is walking with the Lord called the fruit of the Spirit.

But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, forbearance, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self-control. Against such things there is no law.” Galatians 5:22-23

This powerful list is an excellent reminder of attitudes we should aspire to have. This month, we will look closely at the fruits of the spirit found in Scripture.


May 2022

There are many promises of God in Scripture. Every promise of God will be fulfilled (Joshua 21:45). Some promises found in the Bible were for individuals, others were for a nation or a group of people, and some are for us.

This month, we will journal some of the promises for us found in Scripture. Dive deeper in your study as you examine the promises.


April 2022

This month in our scripture journaling, we will focus on the power of the cross. We will look at the suffering and sacrifice of Jesus Christ and the hope we have because of His resurrection.


March 2022

You can probably think of many reasons to worry. The world around us is in turmoil. Your family may feel like it is falling apart. You may be struggling with health or financial issues. It can be easy for us to try and carry all of our problems on our own, filling our days with worry.

The cure for worry is resting in the fact that Jesus Christ is our rescue. He wants us to have peace and trust in Him, knowing that He is in control. We don’t have to carry our worries and fears.


February 2022

The Bible has much to say about prayer.  The ability to converse with God is such a gift. We can express our thankfulness, pray for others and surrender our anxieties to God through prayer.

In February, we will look at scriptures that talk about prayer during our scripture journaling.  If you have never done the monthly scripture journaling with us, this is a great time to start.


January 2022

As we begin a new year, we will spend time this month in our Scripture Journaling looking at the word, endurance.

When facing a trial in our life, the last thing you probably want to do is endure, but in the Bible, we can see many places where we are called to do just that.
