Bible reading and journaling

Sunday, March 24, 2013

I have always been taught to make your Bible "yours." Highlight, underline, take notes in it, write out prayers, etc. I love to journal my prayers and notes while reading my Bible, but some days coming up with the extra time can be a challenge when I need to get out the door for work. So, my next best option for me: write little notes right inside the Bible. It's a great reference later when I am searching for certain verses, and it is neat to look back on to see what God was showing me at that time. I have also done this in Bible studies or when listening to a speaker/pastor's message. When I did the Beth Moore Bible studies, my Bible was FULL of notes from her videos as she explained parts of the Bible in ways that I had never known!

I wanted to share an example with you of me "marking up my Bible." This is "minor" compared to some of my note-taking/underlining days, but I took a quick picture this morning as I was reading to be able to share with you. I know that some people do not like to write or highlight in books. I am the opposite. If you ever borrow a non-fiction book from me, expect to see LOTS of highlighting, underlining, and notes in the margins! It helps me find information quickly that I want to look back on, but it also helps me to learn it better because as I am highlighting/underlining it I am re-reading it! So, don't be afraid to mark up your Bible or books!

    My Bible has little notes that date back to 2004! So neat to see what the Lord has done. And I know what you mean about Beth Moore studies!

    emoticon Amen! I just recently bought a new study bible! I love to take notes as the pastor is giving his sermon! I have a hard time understanding certain verses in the bible, but that is why I love the study bible because if your ever in doubt, you can look down below at the notes and it will help you. God is so amazing the way he planned everything! Have a blessed day! Happy Psalm Sunday! emoticon emoticon emoticon
