Now I had always taken a more intellectual study approach to reading the bible, and quite honestly I was bored of it. This has resulted into me rarely read my Bible unless it was to complete homework for one of the studies I was involved in at church. I really didn´t know of any other way other than the various more intellectual forms of studying God´s word. But I was so encouraged and excited about this practice of Bible journaling. I had heard and seen others do this sort of studying but never ventured into it myself. I just thought I didn´t have the correct Bible or I wasn´t creative enough to actually draw what was portrayed in the verses. However, I had been learning to "letter" or do calligraphy before I had my baby but hadn´t ventured back into the hobby since her birth in November. I realized on Thursday that through this form of creativity I could find new excitement in studying God´s word and also pick up my hobby again. It doesn´t matter yet that I don´t think I can draw perfectly, that will come with practice.
I now pass on the challenge of Bible journaling. And if you´re really motivated you can join it with the challenge presented in the previous post (21 days of studying the word). If you have found yourself stuck in a rut and needing to be refreshed in God´s word and even in your relationship with Him I encourage you to give this study habit a try and if you´re really brave share a photo with us!
