Journaling Bibles can be a great way to go deeper in God’s word, but many feel paralyzed, not knowing what to write (or not).
We bid farewell to the “20-teens” with a question from Kevin, still a teen, an 18-year-old listener who has a brand-new Bible and a great question for you.
“Hello Pastor John! My parents just bought me a new “ESV Journaling Bible, Interleaved Edition for Christmas. It has a full blank page between each Bible page.” A lot like Jonathan Edwards’s “Blank Bible,” sounds like. “I’m truly delighted to have it and to begin using it. I’m hoping it helps me reflect more on God’s word and to be more consistent about spending time with him. The hang-up is this: I’ve never written in my Bible before. So having blank pages for notes is brand-new territory for me. What should I write down? Should it be a place to document my current discoveries? Would it be useful to look back on how God was working in my life — a spiritual diary of sorts? Should I date my entries? Stuff like that. How would you go about doing this, Pastor John?”
