Then an amazing women I had never met before sent me a package through amazon. A Journaling Bible, some washi tape, and some fineliner pens. Sunday will be three years since that package arrived on my door step and changed the way I interacted with my Savior, The Word, and my faith.
I did 66 entries in that Bible in a little over 2.5 years. Then last month I started a new Bible. Things were shifting for me again and I was being pulled deeper into my walk with God. It seemed like a good time to start a new Bible. Since then I have already done over 30 journal entries. I am seeking the Lord more deeply than I have in a long time.
As my journaling anniversary approaches I thought it would be fun to share some pictures of some of my very first journal entries, and what those same passages look like in my new Bible.
My very first Bible entry September 10, 2014
The same passage in my new interleaved Bible done a few weeks ago.
This was my second journal entry in my first Bible. I had minimal supplies and pulled out things from past attempts at scrapbooking and art journaling.
Both of the entries for the story of Jacob's Ladder were inspired by a sermon my Dad gave years ago. I love that the entries were done nearly 3 years apart and with out meaning to I used a similar color pallet for both.
I forgot to date this one. OOPS! I love this passage in Romans about how we should treat others.
This is one of the first pages I did in my new Bible. I love how you can see how my style has changed and grow. My prayer is that my heart continues to change and grow as well.
