weekly verse
Matthew 17:20 He said to them, “Because of your little faith. For truly, I say to you, if you have faith like a grain of mustard seed, you will say to this mountain, ‘Move from here to there,’ and it will move, and nothing will be impossible for you.”


  Time For God: Scripture Journal

Yesterday, while we were out at Target, I picked up two new composition notebooks intended for journaling.  I got one for my personal journal and the other for what I will call my Jesus journal.  I saw something online a while back that people make called Scripture Journals that really caught my eye.  Basically, it is just a place to keep track of things you learn while reading the Bible.  I am not totally sure of the layout I plan to use yet, but I am excited to get started.

I think keeping a Jesus journal can help you stay on track with reading your bible and also just staying close to God.  I think a Jesus journal should be an extension of yourself and your thoughts combined with God’s word.  For example, if you read a chapter on faith you should write down key things that you took from it along with how it made you feel or other things it might have laid on your heart. I think your journal can be artistic or it can be very simplistic in nature.  The bottom line is that it should be something that you love.  It should make you want to progress in your relationship with God. It is about you and God, plain and simple.

I found some pretty neat Scripture journals online that I thought might kind of help with the description I am trying to give.  Some of these are from other religions I don’t follow but I still thought it would help get the point across.  I think Scripture journaling can work whether you are a Baptist or a Mormon.  The bottom line for me is that you love God and we all need to have a strong relationship with him.  This is my way of doing so.

So, as you can see they can be anything you want them to be.  I plan to start my journal today and continue with it everyday hereafter.  From time to time I may share a page from it on here if I feel like someone needs to see it for whatever reason but for the most part I think I will keep it to myself.  It is, after all, a journal and I just think journals are private things; an outpouring of your heart.  In this case it is still that but also a learning and growth experience that I do hope some of you will try out.  At the very least, if journaling just isn’t your thing, make sure to make some time everyday for God.  I think it is easier to stay close to Him if you talk to Him daily.  In the end I think it will be beneficial for those who do. 

That’s all I have for you today…earlier this week I missed two days of posts because of some mishaps and hopefully it won’t happen again.  I will be back tomorrow with a family post.  See you then :).
