Bible Journaling, My June Pages: Hebrews 6 through 1 Peter

Once a month I like to share my Bible Journaling Pages and what God has been teaching me.  In the month of June I journaled from Hebrews 6 through 1 Peter.    Sometimes I just color in the preprinted images of the "Inspire Bible" (available on Amazon) and I also create my own pages.
Unless otherwise stated, all the images are colored in with either gel pens or colored pencils.  I tend to color larger areas with pencils then get the more intricate spots with pens.  I high light my Bible with gel highlighters, and I usually use gelatos or  craft paint for my backgrounds.

The month of June was a busy one for me so I don't have a lot of Bible Journaling pages to share.  The kids and grandkids were here for a week so we were chasing around a lot or having lots of fun at home, but here is what I do have:

The first page I colored in my Inspire Bible for the month of June was Hebrews 6:19.  Just like an anchor holds a ship in place no matter how strong the winds or current, our hope in God's promises holds us in place.  We can rest assured that we are not tossed about by every wind and uncertainty in life, and that we can hold onto the blessed hope which awaits for us in heaven.

If you believe in Jesus, His Holy Spirit lives inside of you.  He put His laws in our minds and wrote them on our hearts.  He is our God.  His spirit speaks to us.

With the World Economic Forum just recently taking place there's been a lot of talk about The Great Reset.  If you've never heard of it, I would suggest you Google it, as I don't want to take the time to explain such a complicated issue here.  Some people say The Great Reset is a conspiracy theory, and I certainly hope so, but they are actually talking about how to achieve this at the World Economic Forum.  Now whether they will be able to make it happen, that I don't know.  But I don't think one can call it a conspiracy theory if the global leaders are all discussing it.

The Great Reset has been on my mind a lot lately, and causing a lot of fear.  I sincerely doubt I could lose the home that I spent my whole life working for, and "be happy".  So when I came across the verse "when all you owned was taken from you, you accepted it with Joy", it hit home for me.  Could I do that?  Could I lose everything, and still "be happy"?  I don't know.  Hopefully I will never have to find that out.

This is one of my husband's and mine favorite Bible verses.  Life as a Christian is a long distance race.  It takes so much endurance.  Sometimes we're sprinting, running full speed ahead, then other times it's just a slow and steady jog, and occasionally we're just stopped at the side of the road panting and completely out of breath.  Right now, with everything going on in the world, I feel like I'm running up a steep hill.  I keep going, cause I know I'm going in the right direction, but it is so difficult, yet, I won't give up.  I just keep putting one foot in front of the other trying not to pass out as I keep climbing up.

I love this cheerful, happy verse, so I did it all in bright colors.  God gives His children good gifts doesn't He?  Everything good and perfect comes from Him.

Are you feeling distant from God?  Then come close to Him, and He will come close to you.  Read His word.  Pray.  Sing songs of worship.  Confess your sins.  These are all ways you can come close to God.

God wants us to bring our needs to Him.  But if you look at the verse preceding this one it says "Confess your sins to each other and pray for each other..."  Confessing and repenting of our sins to each other and praying for other believers, is an important part of the Christian life.  "If we confess our sins, He is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and cleanse us from all unrighteousness"(1 John 1:9).  Our prayers will be made all the more powerful if we do this because God hears and takes action.

And for my last page of the month of June, I just started the book of 1 Peter.  What a promise this verse is. Life is full of trials.  Especially during this time in history.  It's getting harder and harder to stand for truth everyday.  But take heart!  God says "There is wonderful joy ahead!"  Even though we must endure the trials of this life, if we persevere, if we stay strong, we will experience "much praise and glory and honor" when Jesus returns!  So hang in there!  

I hope my Bible Journaling pages inspired you this month!

Have A Great Day!  Amy

  1. Bible journaling is a viable way to interact more deeply with scriptural texts. I like your pretty colors and artwork.

  2. Thank you for sharing your journaling with us. I love how you worshipped with creativity. I love all the scriptures you shared. My favorite one is James 9:16 which I quote often. Thank you for making me go back and read the previous verse. You are correct when we confess first we clear the way for the power of prayer.

    1. You're welcome, and thank you. I needed to be reminded of confession before prayer myself. I'm not sure I even really knew that. I guess that is why it's important to read God's word daily, no matter how many times we've read it before.

  3. I've been inspired by your journaling this year, Amy, and just purchased a Bible to begin journaling in. Is there a place you could recommend for templates for making the words, flowers, symbols, etc.?

    1. Thank you. Ooh, I have been buying craft supplies for so many years and have such a stash, I don't buy anything anymore. It sounds like you're looking for stencils. They went out of style for awhile, but I think they are making a comeback as I've seen some on-line companies offer them. I read this book
      https://www.amazon.com/Complete-Guide-Bible-Journaling-Translucent/dp/1497202728/ref=sr_1_3?crid=NXH20X8IAWUG&keywords=Bible+Journaling+book&qid=1659180307&sprefix=bible+journaling+book%2Caps%2C111&sr=8-3 when I was just getting started, and it helped me immensely.

    2. Thank you, Amy! This book looks helpful, and several suggested stencils popped up with it. I'm excited!

    3. You're welcome! That's great!

  4. Always enjoy seeing these pages you create, very inspiring. Thanks so much for linking up at the Unlimited Link Party 78. Pinned.
