Tuesdays are the days I posts my crafty endeavors. If I don't have a craft or a handmade card to share, I show my Bible Journaling Pages. If your new to Bible Journaling and want to learn more about it, see this post HERE! I use the Inspire Bible which has some pre-printed pages, that I can just color in, but I also venture off and get creative sometimes and create my own pages.
Here are some of my Bible Journaling pages as I continue to trek through the Old Testament.
I created this page because I was struck by God's command "to keep the lamps burning continuously". So often "light" is used as a symbolic image in the Bible, in both the old and new testaments. I found it interesting that "light" started as early as Genesis when God said "Let there be light" and it was continuously referenced until the time of Jesus when He told believers in Matthew 5:14-16:
“You are the light of the world. A town built on a hill cannot be hidden. 15 Neither do people light a lamp and put it under a bowl. Instead they put it on its stand, and it gives light to everyone in the house. 16 In the same way, let your light shine before others, that they may see your good deeds and glorify your Father in heaven."
I created my page by tracing the words "illuminate" and the lamp from my "Complete Guide To Bible Journaling" book. I colored the background yellow water colors. I then hand wrote the scripture reference under the "Illuminate" word and I also circled in the scripture itself. The lamp and "Illuminate" word were colored with gel pens.
When I was reading through all of God's instructions to the Israelites on how to build the tabernacle, I was so pleased to see how many times God praised crafters, people who could sew, embroider, weld, engrave, carve, etc. If you can craft, you have a gift from God!
So to celebrate my crafting gift from God, I created this fun page. I used a couple of old stamp sets for some of the words and images. The ruler is washi tape. The background was colored with gelatos. I hand wrote the sentence "Crafts Are A Gift From God!"
This is a pre-printed page that I simply colored in using gelatos and gel pens.
Here is another page I created myself. As I read this chapter, I noticed how important it was to God to have "Willing and Generous Heart". He wants us to give with the right attitude! I think I always tend to give out of obedience and often times resentment. I give, but I don't want to, there are a lot of other things I would rather do with that money....like buy a new car, go on a vacation, or simply put it in the bank. But regardless of my feelings, I still give because God tells us to. But, oh, how I wish I could give with the right heart: a willing and generous one!
To create my page I colored the background with pink gelatos. I highlighted verses in the scripture with a pink highlighter and drew a heart around every word "heart". Many of the words on my page are stickers, but I also hand wrote a few too. The two large hearts were cut using a Cuttlebug, one of the little hearts was created with a heart punch.
This is just a pre-printed page that I colored in using Stampin' Up! Markers.
My last page was also a pre-printed page that I colored in with gel pens.
I hope you've enjoyed looking at my Bible Journaling pages and that I am inspiring to dig deeper into God's word in whatever way works best for you. Bible Journaling really has deepened my hunger for delving deeper into the Bible.
Have A Great Day! Amy
