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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
For our July Scripture Journaling, we will look at the Bible verses dealing with patience. According to Dictionary.com, 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?
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
