Come along with me each month as I journal my way through the Bible. I'm not artistic at all, so you won't see beautiful illustrations and calligraphy, but what you will see is what I gleaned from the scriptures every day and how I creatively journaled what I have learned in the margins of my Inspire Bible.
In last month's Bible Journaling post I mentioned I had way too many Bible Journaling posts for June and very few for July and August, so I decided to divide the month of June into two separate posts and then combine my July and August posts into one. Ah, the life of a gardener, certain seasons we are very busy. Now is a gardener's very busy season: Harvest time! But in other seasons we just sit and dream!
Now, onto the last of my June pages, shall we?
My first page I created to illustrate Isaiah 40:26. The theme of Isaiah 40 is "Comfort and Strength for God's People". Isaiah was trying to get the people to see the greatness of God by seeing His glory in creation. I must admit, anytime I have my doubts about God's inability to solve a problem in my life, all I have to do is take a little walk in nature and see His magnificent handiwork everywhere. Suddenly my problems seems so small and insignificant because if could create "all this", surely He can handle my issues.
To make this page I painted the background with several different shades of craft paint. I stamped stars and diamonds in the background and then used a mixture of stamps and my own handwriting for the verse.
Here is another page that shows how nature reveals God's glory.
To make this page, I colored in the background with a marker, then I added a die cut rainbow. I hand wrote the Bible verse, and added a piece of ephemera from my "Worthy of Worship" kit from Illustrated Faith.
I had so much fun making this page! I read this verse, and then I just immediately thought of all the strange and interesting creatures God has made for us to enjoy.
To make this page, I painted the background green and used a combination of stamps and my own handwriting for the verse. The "creatures" are 3D stickers. I also painted some white dots in the background.
Here is a page that I created that is combination of notes, Bible study, and a verse illustration. There's no rules in Bible journaling, you can do whatever the Lord leads you. It doesn't always have to be pretty illustrations, sometimes it can just be notes or notes illustrated in an attractive way.
On this page I am illustrating a theme from my devotional that came with my "Worthy of Worship". In that devotional, the author went through all the different ways in our lives we can worship God. One way is to worship God with our testimony. Simply share with others what God has done for us. But the most traditional way to worship God, is to praise Him when we are assembled with our brothers and sisters in Christ (as seen in Psalm 22:22).
In addition to notes and verses on what it means to "Worship with your testimony" I also wrote some notes on a "Reminder" ephemera card about what it means to rest in the Lord, based on Psalm 23:2.
To make this page, I painted the background with craft paint and added little white dots. I hand wrote all my notes and the Bible verse. The "Smile Jesus Loves You" and "Reminder" are ephemera from the "Worthy of Worship" kit. The flowers are die cuts.
Keeping with the theme of "Worship with your testimony", my next page illustrates to give thanks to God, proclaim His greatness, and tell the ENTIRE WORLD what He has done! Wow! That's a tall order!
To make this page I painted the background with bright pink craft paint. The rainbow is ephemera from the "Worthy of Worship" kit. The globe and people is a stamp, that I colored in, cut out, and adhered to the page. The flower is a die cut. I used a mix of stamps and my own handwriting for the verse.
Another reminder from God that He wants us to tell others about Him. Worship with your testimony!
To make this page I painted the background with green craft paint then painted in a little background design with blue craft paint. I stamped the Bible verse. The "Kingdom Carrier" and "Smiley Face" are ephemera from the "Worthy of Worship" kit. The yellow flower is a die cut.
This last page is the same verse as Psalm 105 above, but in a different book! How interesting is that? This author was most likely quoting the psalm.
To make this page, I adhered a piece of pink designer paper in the margin and painted some white dots. The flowers and hearts are ephemera from the "Worthy of Worship" kit. The verse is a combination of stamps and my own handwriting.
I hope my Bible journaling pages inspired you this month to get out and tell others about Jesus!
Have A Great Day! Amy
