Now that I have had my new Inspire Bible for a week, I figured it was time to do another post with photos of the pages I have journaled and illustrated so far. I am really enjoying this Bible the more time I spend in it, and even more so, I feel my relationship with God deepening as I meditate on His word through creative worship.
One benefit of this Bible that I have already been able to experience is the ability to pick a scripture on my heart to color and meditate while coloring, and not have to worry about what I’m going to draw or paint. A few nights ago I was having a lot of anxiety and wanted to just spend some time meditating on Philippians 4:6-7. When I turned to the passage and found that it had a large illustration ready to be colored, I was elated! I spent an hour slowly coloring while repeating over and over to myself “don’t worry about anything, pray about everything. And God’s peace will guard my heart.” Ever since I spent time praying and coloring this verse, I have been feeling less worried and anxious. What a blessing to have this Bible in order to creatively worship and spend time in the Word!
Another thing I have really enjoyed is using watercolors with the illustrations. This is my first single column Bible, and I love having extra margin space to add to the illustrations when I want to fill in the page more and personalize the pre-printed illustrations.
One of my favorite pages that I have done was my JOY page. This page makes me happy every time I look at it, because I know that it came out of the joy that God has placed in my heart for His word. It’s been a long time since I have felt joy and passion for God’s word, and I rejoice that God has been working in my life through this journey of Bible journaling.
