HOW TO START A BIBLE JOURNAL FOR BEGINNERS?

Bible journaling – a creative process of making art in your Bible as a way to connect with scripture and with God.
Your Bible doesn’t have to be perfect or even pretty AND you don’t need to spend a bunch of money on supplies.
You can absolutely use the Bible you already have to begin Bible Journaling. But if you want more space, you can check out several budget friendly journaling Bibles.
There are basic things that we can do when we are journaling:
• Write prayers in the margins. (Remember to date the prayers- and come back later to add the answer and date answered!)
• Write what God speaks into your heart as you read a passage.
• Write sermon notes beside the scripture reference.
• Still not sure where to start? Here are some more great ideas:
• Keep doing what you are doing! Find some quiet time. When you are inspired to remember a verse or point, then write or illustrate in your Bible next to the scripture you studied that day.
• Use your concordance to read the Bible by topic. Choose a topic you want to learn more about and follow those verses through the Bible.
• If you read Christian living books, write or illustrate in your Bible next to the references that speak to you.
Now I am going to share some tips from Sara Laughed who is a lover of bile journaling.
#Tip 1Understanding what it’s all about
Alright, guys, let’s get one thing clear: Bible journaling is not about making the most beautiful art. I, myself, am guilty of wanting to make something really beautiful and impressive for the sake of, well… making something really beautiful and impressive. But that’s is not the right attitude – not in Bible journaling and not in life. Bible journaling isn’t about the outcome, it’s about the process. Focus on connecting with scripture and your belief, and the skill will come with time.
#Tip 2: Having the right tools
All you need to Bible journal is a Bible and a pen. If you want to expand a little bit, you can try coloured pencils, watercolour pencils, paints, stickers, washi tapes, and more. But to start out, all you need is “scripture and a scribbler.” 
I use the Black ESV Single Column Journaling Bible by Crossway. I like that the pages are cream-colored, with lots of margin room that comes faintly lined. Here is an example blank spread, with some “ghosting” (when pens or highlighters show through the page a little) shown on the left side.
#Tip 3: Finding a verse
Alright, so you have your Bible, your pen(s), and maybe some extras, like paints, stamps, or stickers. The next thing to do is find a verse.
Bible journaling can be a little scary, especially if you’re not used to writing in your Bible before. For that reason, I recommend starting off with a verse that you know well and that means a lot to you. Starting with a verse that you are very familiar with helps take away some level of discomfort when it comes to journaling in your Bible for the first time, and it will help you come up with an idea faster. At the same time, if you choose your absolute favourite verse, it may be difficult to come up with a design that includes everything it means to you. For that reason, choose one you know well and like, but maybe not the verse you’d paint on your living room ceiling.
#Tip 4: Getting started
Alright, here comes the exciting part! Now that you have your tools and verse, and you’re excited to get going, it’s time to get started. Everyone has a different process for how they do this; you may want to pray first, or just get started; you may prefer to do some background research on the verse you’re doing so that you can add detail (that’s me – nerd alert!). In the end, what it comes down to is mustering up the courage to put pen to paper and make something that expresses how you feel. This is my process for the actual journaling process:
Reflect on the verse. Read it over a few times; maybe do a little background research. Let it sink into my bones. I think about the parts of the verse that mean something to me, and then I try to figure out how I can represent them in art.
Sketch it out with a pencil. I like to use a simple mechanical pencil to do my sketching so that I don’t make any permanent mistakes!
Outline it with pen. I use my skinny Pigma Microns to do this, as they don’t bleed through the paper.
Fill it in with colourNext, I use gel pens, colouredpencils, and watercolour pencils to add colour and dimension to my design!

HAPPY VALENTINES DAY

You know sometimes we give our love to the wrong people. Love is something special and the greatest love was given to us from Jesus. However, he is usually the first to be forgotten. We are so quick to give our love and affection to the people of the world that we lose sight of the real person who needs our love. Jesus just wants our love that’s it. It is no hard but society makes it hard and it should not be this way. 
With today being Valentine’s Day I thought I would do a special post for Jesus and write him a letter, not just any letter but a deep and devotional letter filled with prophecies in it that will be filled. It is already as they said besides it is the year of the harvest and nothing comes close to giving my Jesus love than writing him a letter this year. I am single and the only boyfriend, best friend , husband I need is my Jesus. 
Dear Jesus,
Let me just start off by saying I don’t praise you enough the way that I should, I don’t read my bible as much as I should, I don’t ask for what I want as much as I do. But yet even though I don’t ask for the smallest things you still manage to give it all to me. You still give me grace knowing that I am not perfect and I still make mistakes. This is a new process for me surrendering to you myself and all of my flaws to be worked in and out Its not easy to work with me because sometimes I feel like I am stuck in my old ways but I know you got me.
I just want to be taken cleaned up and made brand new.  I want to thank you for everything you have done and everything you are doing in my life and thank you for you taking me out of situations that I didn’t deserve or ask to be in. You give us grace even when we don’t deserve it. I need to ask for more things that I want so that you can help me work on these things,

A free gym membership would be nice lol 
Time management I need help with that 
Guide me in the right direction 
My blog
My career my success is all in you 
My patience needs some work but you know this
A vocal and acting coach 
More people on my team to help me expand my business! 
Organization skills
Camera 
Jesus, when you are with me nothing seems difficult; but when I forget you everything is a mess and I can not forgive myself. 
your voice to me is the most precious sound in existence. I need your voice to speak to me with comfort to get me through my day. 
 “The Master is come, and he calls for you” (John 11:28). 
I would be a fool to not put you first in all that I do. I can not go into any situation without having you on my mind Jesus. I can not want anything else if it is not for you Jesus. The world without you is just that a world lost and needs to be found again. To be without you is hell on earth; being with you Jesus is like sweet Candy land. As long as you are with me no enemy can hurt me. 
Finding you the only treasure that I want to find. The best thing in life is you. I know that I am blessed to have blessings, I do not want to know poverty. 
I want to know how to have a conversation with you like no other speak to me how you want to speak to me. I want your mind and want to live life so gracefully. Give me peace and the ability to please you.  
Lord, heal my heart so that I can have you with me at all times.  
God you made us to be your friend in you, that is why we exist but we have a purpose beyond that. It is to fulfill your vision and your work. I don’t want to drive you away and lose your. What would I do if this happens! You were my friend when no one else was.  I can deal with having the whole world against me than to lose you. I trust you and what you are doing in my life because I know it is something amazing. 
I love you Jesus! Because I have love for you, I can therefore love others around me. You are as faithful to me as I am to you and have never left me even in my worst times. you are God and there is no one like you! Jesus , my prayer  is that you would be in me and in every person who calls on you.
I just ask for everything abundantly and for your grace!
Happy Valentine’s Day 

Love,
your daughter
