This journal I am sharing today is one that I started in the early days of my Christian walk, when the Word became alive to me. Although it is not my own words, it is filled with pages I love. I love to meditate on His Word and write and re-write Scripture. Some of the swirly word designs are so reflective of my mind in the sense that the Holy Spirit does call forth the Word and it swims through my mind, alive, active and powerful…useful. It also triggers songs that glorify God. This journal is so near and dear to my heart as I would sit and ponder as I wrote, read and contemplated. As you will see, 1 John was ministering strongly to me, as God did deep surgery on my newly converted heart. Actually God was using each of these verses to teach me…Hope you enjoy a peek into this “Scripture Journal”.
(The dates range @ 1997-1999)
For the word of God is living and active, sharper than any two-edged sword, piercing to the division of soul and of spirit, of joints and of marrow, and discerning the thoughts and intentions of the heart.
Do your best to present yourself to God as one approved, a worker who has no need to be ashamed, rightly handling the word of truth.
2 Timothy 2:15
All Scripture is God-breathed and is useful for teaching, rebuking, correcting and training in righteousness, so that the servant of God[a] may be thoroughly equipped for every good work.
2 Timothy 3:16
This is the covenant I will make with the house of Israel after that time,” declares the LORD. “I will put my law in their minds and write it on their hearts. I will be their God, and they will be my people.
