Mid September Bible Journaling Pages

Here are my Bible Journaling Pages for this week.  I FINALLY finished the book of 2 Samuel and will begin reading 1 Kings today!  Yay!  I'm always excited to start a new book.  I read fairly slowly, averaging only one chapter a day.  With Bible Journaling I really dig deep for understanding and reading smaller amounts helps me to do that.

My first page is a pre-printed page that  colored all in shades of green.  The words were colored in with gel pens and gelatos were used for the background.

This is a beautiful story of mercy that I don't remember reading about before.  When David was down and out he was taunted and heckled by a man.  When David was once again restored to the throne, he showed the same man mercy.  


Here is a double spread page(s) that I water colored.  Water coloring is great when you want to color beyond the margins but you don't want to cover up God's Word.  The image on the left is a pre-printed image that I colored with pencils, then I used a mix of yellows, pinks, and oranges to create the background color.




Another pre-printed page I colored with pencils and Gamosol.


This page I colored all in pink to represent the heart.  The background is all gelatos and the words and images are colored with glitter and gel pens.  I used a white gel pen to highlight the hearts and the word "love".


This is a page I created myself using craft paint and stamps.  I painted the background first with craft paint, then using a heart stencil I sponged in white paints creating the hearts.  I stamped a mini heart background stamp all over the craft paint background.  Then  I hand wrote my thoughts over the top of the craft paint.

In reading this chapter I was struck by the sentence "David kept thinking to himself"  and I thought how often what we begins in our hearts and our thoughts affects our actions.  We need to hold our thoughts captive 2 Corinthians 10:5) and make sure that they are true and Godly.


Last week I showed you the left side of these pages, but I forgot to show you the other side.


The opposite side of this page is another pre-printed image that I colored with pencils.


I was so moved when I read this beautiful psalm of praise at the end of 2 Samuel.  I don't remember reading it before.  It was so touching.  I memorized this pre-printed image as I colored it in with pencils.


Have A Great Day!  Amy
