Topic: Bible Journaling
Despite being behind on the #BeThankfulFor challenge for a few days while I had to travel out of town, I did catch up by doing several days' worth at a time. This allowed me to finish ON TIME. The challenge ran with daily prompts from November 1 through November 30.
All of the rest have already been posted so I only have two left to show.
November 29 - Traditions
Joshua 4:6-7, 24 - A representative from each of the 12 tribes of Israel went out into the Jordan River and brought back a stone from the dry land, when the river flowed back into its course, they stacked the stones. The purpose was to have a memorial so that, when their children asked about it, they could be told how God took them across the river on dry land. It was a remembrance of a miracle.
Many of the Jewish traditions were reminders of what God had done for them. Christian traditions are much the same for us (baptism, communion, celebrations of Christmas and Easter). When we participate in holiday traditions, let's follow the example in Joshua and remind ourselves of the WHY, not jut the WHAT that surrounds them.
November 30 - Forgiveness
I have had a bookmark in my study Bible for many years with this KJV paraphrase on it. I think it was a Secret Sister gift. I love that it is personalized with my own name.
I decided to use the same concept with the NIV wording and now I have it permanently in my journaling Bible.
As usual, I think the hardest thing about challenges with prompts is deciding what to do for the artwork. In this case, sometimes the art was easy to decide on but it was more difficult to decide what scripture to journal it on. In some cases that was because I had already journaled on that page in my Bible, so had to choose an alternative.
It has been fun.
