I shared a few weeks ago that I was just starting to get into Bible Journaling – where you create in the margins of your Bible based on what you have read and the direction the Holy Spirit leads you. Sophie has now caught the vision for it as well and together we have prayed, read and created. How I love this time with her.
Supplies are simple: A journaling Bible, colored pencils (any kind will do), a good black micron pen, some paints if you dare and maybe some cute washi tape.
I love this practice of creating in my Bible. I see it as a response to God’s word but sometimes I get caught up in being afraid I will “mess up”. I have to guard myself against getting caught up in comparison or the beauty or lack of beauty in the art. It’s not about me. It’s about God and what He has to say about himself in his word. My response is worship. And worship in the margins is a new practice for me. I am loving it. It’s helping Gods word marinate a bit longer in my soul and mind.
