Many years ago, I recall a conversation I had with one of my friends that had just lost a parent. This was such a difficult time in her life, but she sought comfort in something left behind by her father, his Bible. This was not just any ordinary Bible, but this was one that was loved and used. She knew that because it was not new. The cover and pages were worn. Notes were written throughout the entire Bible, as well as many prayers left behind. My friend sought comfort in this Bible and she reflected on the fact that she would once again be united with her father once she got to Heaven. That one conversation left such a mark on me. It made me consider my own legacy that I was leaving behind for my children and loved ones. Of course, I read my Bible and write notes to myself throughout the margins as I listen to the Word being taught or what God reveals to me in quiet time. Those notes are very dear to my heart.
Could my kids get my Bible and see the love I had for my King? Would they be able to pick up my Bible and see that it was more than just a book on the shelf? Would they be able to tell they I used that book to live my life? From that moment on I knew it would be important for me to begin Bible journaling.
What is Bible journaling? It is a way to show your love of the Word by drawing pictures or writing words on the pages of the Bible where you are inspired. It helps you to engage with the Bible and God’s word in a powerful and meaningful way. Now I realize this is not for everyone, and that is okay. But if you are the creative kind and want to celebrate God’s love in a new and refreshing way, I want to encourage you to consider bible journaling.
