A little over a year ago, I stumbled across the hashtag #biblejournalingcommunity while scrolling on Instagram. I was absolutely amazed by the beautiful artwork, encouragement, testimonies and prayers that were being shared on these posts.
What an amazing way to use your platform to share the Word with others in a unique and creative way. I’ve always been a note-taking enthusiast and a DIY as many things as possible kinda girl. Why hadn’t I thought to use my Bible in this way before? I’m sure you can guess what happened next! I was so inspired and encouraged by these women that I began doodling, painting, writing, and using scrapbooking elements in my Bible as I meditated on God’s Word.
In 2019, I joined a creative team where I have the honor of working with so many beautiful Jesus loving women who create content, and physical and digital bible journaling supplies and tools. After joining the team, I had the opportunity to be the contributor for the monthly devotional kit, and wow, did God do a big thing in my heart and in the Bible journaling community!
Bible journaling is one of the many ways I love to creatively worship our wonderful Creator. Getting creative in my bible is the result of me praying, studying, and meditating on God’s Word and not a replacement.
One of the many amazing parts of having a relationship with God is the way that each relationship is so personal. We can all worship Him, and we can all worship Him differently.
How do you worship God?
I also have other bibles that I use for in-depth study before I jump into using my paints and crafting supplies. It’s how I like to meditate on what I’ve just studied and had also helped me with scripture memorization.
For me, the bible journaling community has made such a great impact on my life in so many ways! Not only has bible journaling helped me become more consistent in reading and studying the Word, but the community has been such a gift and a blessing right when I needed it the most.
It’s so amazing how God connects all of us even though we are spread out all over the world! The love, accountability, friendship, and prayer I receive from the community is unreal and I can’t express how grateful I am to be a part of it.
How do you use your gifts to tell others about God? How do you connect with Him in a way that is personal?
The way God uses body members to uplift one another and encourage one another is truly amazing and so personal. Project Inspired is a great example of that – a welcoming place so many wonderful women come to, to connect.
