Sometime in the fall of 2015, I stumbled upon #biblejournaling on Instagram, and a new chapter of my testimony began.
I am a student at my core. I like to know. Sometimes, that means I feed my mind while neglecting my heart. We are called to love the Lord our God with all our heart, soul, mind, and strength (Mark 12:30).
Bible journaling has taught me to worship God with my creativity, and creativity is something that awakens my heart in a way that intellectual study does not. When I pick up a crayon or a paintbrush, I am feeling, visualizing, and internalizing. The act of illustrating a page in my Bible turns me from a student into a disciple.
Engaging creatively with scripture has also increased my desire to spend time with God. Glue, paint, and stickers excite me, and I look forward to the process of reading, praying, and playing as I dig into the Bible.
