My True Beauty Book (RJD Link December)

For this last share of the year for Random Journal Day, I am opening up one of my favorite journals. Before the internet, and an abundance of books, I purposed to create a special affirming journal. Because it is helpful for me to write, not just read words, I dedicated a journal for scripture which would help me learn and focus on my identity in Christ. I call it my Beauty Book, but in reality it is a True Beauty Book, which goes beyond the superficial.

There are three parts to this spiral bound journal and I recently decided to finish the last portion which is focused exclusively on the names of Christ. I no longer remember where I picked up these particular reference sheets (pictured), but since I save everything in Binders, I have them still!

 Part one, is My Worth in God, section two is Who I Am In Christ, and the final section is reserved for the Names of Christ. Each section simply states the topic, or title and the supporting scripture.

I have considered going back and writing thoughts or payers on the pages. There is room on many of the pages to allow commentary, reflections, etc.  This journal was especially helpful to create and reflect on in times of discouragement or adversity.

I have a number of journals with meaningful scripture as the writing is key for me. Combining the physical act of writing scripture verses helps me to focus completely, body, mind and spirit on the meaning; it marries me to the verse. I also am a big fan of index cards, but a journal dedicated to scripture, handwritten is really a special gift I like to give myself, and sometimes others!

Have you ever created journal for specific scriptures, meaningful to you?

Well, friends, gather round! It is the last RJD post for the year and I sure hope you will join in and share a page from your journal!
You know, I get such delight as I see what others write, create, doodle, draw, collage, scrap, paint or scribble on paper. I am held captive to this crazy act of journaling! I so admire some of the Art Journals I see, and then there are the Faithbookers, they inspire me as well. Planners, binders, notebooks, blank books, scrapbooks…I love them all. 
The blank page draws me in until I must draw on it! I must mark it up with words, spill myself out and see what will come of it. The pen and paper are trustworthy tools. I am mesmerized by the process. Are you?
I invite you to share your doodles, your scribbles, your rough drafts and works in progress (that you are willing to reveal!). Show me your Dear Diary and your journal entry; Share your Art Journal Page, your Faith-book page, your doodle or quote journal. 
Show us what your heart looks like on paper!
I am wondering what we should do differently next year for Random Journal Day. I would love to have some input on how we can make this something that continues to be a blessing and positive endeavor for our little community. Should we seek to grow it more? I am open to suggestions…
Please share your input in the comments, and thanks!
Now let’s link up for this last time for 2013!

If you’re new around here, check out the details and please join us!
