Genesis 1:3

Genesis 1:3

Well, this is my very first Bible journaling entry! 
I recently discovered the beautiful art of Bible journaling, and I fell in love.
I received this Journaling Bible for Christmas, and I was so excited to start journaling!
I love being able to illustrate special verses in fun, colorful, and meaningful ways. 

Also, I recently began this new devotional called "Seamless: Understanding the Bible as One Complete Story," and I've really been enjoying it so far! It starts with Genesis and leads readers through the whole Bible, easily connecting the many events and people. This has been so helpful for me because sometimes the Bible can be quite... let's be real- overwhelming. But, this has really put everything into perspective for me.

While reading through Genesis, I decided that Genesis 1:3 would be a great verse for my first journaling entry. It reads, "And God said, "Let there be light," and there was light." With the beginning of a brand new year and semester it is so comforting knowing that God is there to light the way for me. This year I am going to try my best to always be aware of the many ways He lights up my life.

 This is what the cover of my Journaling Bible looks like. 
(It's a bit bland, so I'm hoping to spice it up soon!)

 The "instructions" recommend to always date your entries!
(and to always label what they are about)

If you found this interesting and would like to see more of my journaling entries, let me know! I love being able to share my faith with y'all, and I hope to inspire someone who is reading. Thanks so much for stopping by!

xoxo,
Meredith

  12. Hello Meredith!

    I have another idea for a faith video. I would love it if you talked about finding good Christian collages and what you experience is like at a Christina collage.

    Thanks
