Let's chat! I am often asked why I Art Journal in my Bible. Today I sat down with my Bible I and I smiled like a momma bear looking down at the pretty tabs, the wrinkly pages and the fun colors. My Bible makes me happy. But these are not the reasons I do Bible Journaling. I thought about how blessed I am to be created a creative and how art gives me great joy. But these are not the reasons I do Bible Journaling. I turned my Bible on it's end and noticed how full it is. It doesn't even come close to closing. In fact, it looks like the spine might just erupt. And THAT is why I do Art Journaling in my Bible. Not because my Bible is so full, but because my relationship with The Word, The Living God, My Jesus is so FULL!
Because my relationship is full, my heart is full, my home is full, my JOY is full. Bible Journaling gets me into The Word. It stirs me to meditation and prayer. It prompts me to read devotionals, ask questions and google what I do not fully understand. I am able to fall deeper into Jesus every time I open the pages, splash some paint, stamp a sentiment. The reason I journal in my Bible is Jesus. The reason I keep filling the pages with color, art, and prayers is because I CRAVE the relationship and I am so very amazed at how it grows with every stroke of the paint brush. Y'all I am convinced my Bible pages are hanging on God's refrigerator. I am His child. And He is my God. And that is why I Journal in my Bible.
