I have a confession to make. As much I love the Bible and writing, I am not really good at keeping a journal or a Bible study journal. Since I have been blogging, I have seen some fantastic and artistic Bible journaling articles. This makes me yearn for the talent it takes to make beautiful script and pictures.
Reading on the journaling topic, I have also come across the bullet journal idea. I absolutely love this idea. The bullet journal allows you to keep a sleek clean journal of your time, without having to be real artistic or take a lot of time. Don’t get me wrong- This journal can be absolutely beautiful. However, I feel as though the pressure isn’t on as much to be so.
Then it hit me. Why not try to do a Bible Bullet Journal? Now, I know nothing is ever invented twice, so I know this is probably not a new concept, but the thought has captivated me. So, now I am trying my hand at it.
Bible Bullet Journal Tools
I had a few journals that were given to me free from an organization that my husband is affiliated with. They were a perfect fit. However, you can choose any kind of journal that best fits your need. Check out this cool journal: Proverbs 3:5 Trust In the Lord with All Your Heart: Turquoise Notebook (Composition Book Journal) (8.5 x 11 Large)
A good pen is also good to have handy. I have started out with this roller ball pen. Beware, though, it may a couple of minutes to dry or else you may smudge your work. I would love to try these pens:EK Tools 5-Pack Journaling Pens, Black
Highlighters would work, but since there were none handy; I used colored pencils to highlight in my journal. These highlighters may be a great option:Accu-Gel Bible Highlighter Study Kit (Pack of 6)
Beginning your Bible Bullet Journal
Beginning with a Scripture passage that I was studying for an upcoming blog post, I made bullet points of the main thoughts or key words from each passage. This allows me to gain understanding of what I studied quickly.
Listing my reading schedule for this week was also a great feature for my Bible Bullet Journal. I even included a “notes” section, so important details could be noted quickly.
Lastly, I added a page for my monthly prayer list. I am able to include details without having to be too detailed.
This is an exciting start to a great and fun resource to add to my quiet time. I hope to keep developing this journal as I embark on the adventure of Bible bullet journaling. It doesn’t take too much time (my 5 and 3 years old children keep me moving constantly). This journal also allows me to have an important record of my study and prayer time.
If you love this idea as much as me, I encourage you to try it for yourself!!
