Happy Wednesday! Do you Bible Journal? My friend Martha and I started a Catholic Women’s Bible Journal group on FaceBook in 2016. I love it, but often forget to post. I’ve made some “Pinterest Fails” in my journaling, and to tell you the truth, I started out just writing Bible passages and doodling. It’s a HUGE business now. Sometimes things like that bother me because my brain is weird. I get it… others don’t and it’s OK! But my point is, we’d love to have you join us…
Some people are super self-conscious about their talent. Let me show you the progression for me. And truly, because I am a perfectionist at heart, I totally ruin it for myself much of the time and would never show anyone my work.
In the pictures below, you can see that I have written out verses and doodled; highlighted verses and written a note whilst stamping a Chalice and coloring it; stamped and painted… Some are way better than others! And it’s all ok.
Some of you may say to yourselves, “I can’t paint or color in in my Bible. How will I read the words?” — I have more than one Bible, so I work in only one of them. I usually can read most of the words, but sometimes, I can’t. AND you can always do it in a journal or sketch book. Whatever you feel comfortable in. And it’s OK! Honestly – have you seen what some of the people do. My word – my work pales in comparison. BUT – there are two things to note here… 1) Don’t compare your work with theirs, that is not what Bible Journaling is about. And 2) My love for God does not pale in comparison. Of this, I am sure.
I hope I have encouraged you to pick be creative whilst studying The Word. I pray you will join us on this journey. More on Bible Journaling soon.
Love, Hugs & All the Blessings!
