For the past 2 years I have been Bible journaling. Two years ago I prayed that God would direct me to a way to become excited by the Word. Yes, I attend church services on Sunday and try very hard to listen to the sermon and take the lesson with me into my daily life. But I knew there was something missing. I didn't have a passion for the word. Not 2 weeks later I found Bible journaling on Pinterest. Now you might call that a coincidence but I know it was God answering my prayer.
But lately the art has taken over the focus stead of the Word. And I've lost that passion. To tell the truth sometimes I would journal a verse without even reading it because of something I had seen someone else do. I haven't been reading or studying the Word for several months and that makes me sad.
So my goal for 2017 is to REFOCUS on God and His Word.
Today I started a new Illustrated Faith Bible Study Goals With Grace. I think this is the perfect way to refocus and reset.
I was also cleaning out the small carry bag that I take my Bible in for Church. It had several months of sermon notes on the back of the weekly church bulletins. In January I picked aa focus Word .....joy. I found a note with a drawing and verse I had made during one sermon. So I turned to that verse and journaled it as well.
Thanks for stopping by.
