Each year I try to set a few challenges for myself, sometimes succeeding, more often than not failing. The success or failure isn’t the point though, it is the intentional reflection that I enjoy. So, for better or worse, this year I have decided to make bible journaling my goal.

I’ll be taking inspiration from Rachelle of Tinkerlab, and devoting a 2 page spread to each day.  I will allow space for artwork, quotes, thoughts, and even my daily to-do list (‘cuz I know it will wind up there anyway).  I will continue to assign myself copywork as I write my way through the Bible, and hopefully this will be the year that I actually memorize the books of the New Testament – a pitiful, but lifelong goal.

Psalm 119:105-106
Your word is a lamp to my feed and a light for my path. I have taken an oath and confirmed it, that I will follow your righteous laws.

Wish me luck, and share your goals.  I know you have them!

    Look forward to your posts.
    I am reading Purpose Driven life again. My Goal is to actually do it in 40 days not 80. :)

      Great goal! I’ve never made it to the end of that book. I’m sure it is around here somewhere, though.

    On KFLR [local Phx. Christian radio] yesterday evening on my way home the radio commentator for the hour was sharing her goals for the next 60 days. So it is that time of the year when we again aim to form a new habit [or perhaps break an old one!]
    For Christians it often means laboring at a way to draw nearer to God. I say “labor” because anytime we attempt to become more like Christ the evil one will do what it can to foil our efforts, depend upon it!
    May the Lord bless your desire to draw nearer to Him!

    I’m not much for making resolutions – but your’s is a good one. I am sure you will benefit a lot from your bible journalling.

    Happy New Year!
