If you’ve been following me for awhile, you know that I’ve been doing monthly Delight in the Word Challenges for a couple years now. Sometimes I feel like we need more than a month to immerse ourselves in a particular topic. That is why this next Challenge is going to be longer than a month. It will include a Lent / Easter Bible reading plan and Scripture writing challenge.
I’m so excited to share with you the Lamb of God Delight in the Word Challenge!
Learn all about what the Bible says about the Lamb of God,
from Genesis through Revelation.
This is a great study to prepare our hearts for Easter. It is set up to last for 5 weeks. So if you start this week (March 9th) you will finish right before Easter. If you start later, that’s fine too. I won’t be starting a new Challenge until May.
Along with the reading plan, for each new Delight in the Word challenge,
we always focus on one particular creative way to delight in the Word.
This month’s creative focus is SUPER-SIMPLE!
So if you have not yet joined a challenge, this is the perfect one to start with.
And if you are already using lots of creativity to delight in the Word,
you can totally customize this activity to be as simple or as creative as you like.
So what is the creative focus this month?
It is Scripture Writing!
The Lamb of God Delight in the Word Challenge includes not only a Bible reading plan,
but also a Scripture WRITING plan.
Why Scripture Writing?
Psalms 1 says that “blessed” is the person whose delight is in
the law of the LORD. Writing out Scripture is such a simple,
easy way to “delight” in the Word of God.
Anyone one can do it. It only takes a few minutes,
and no perfection, skill or talent is needed.
Psalm 119:11 says “Thy word have I hid in mine heart,
that I might not sin against thee”.
It has been proven that the simple act of writing something down
helps you remember it (or hide it in your heart.)
Plus, I find that when I write out a Scripture, I often notice words,
phrases or punctuation that I never even noticed before,
even if I have read that exact verse a dozen times.
And it can give that verse a whole new meaning to me.
If you are a visual or kinesthetic learner, like myself, you are
going to love Scripture writing!
There is just something about doing something with our hands,
and seeing it with our eyes, that helps things to “click” in our brains.
So there you have it!
Super-simple! Just read the day’s suggested
Bible verses, then write the suggested verse.
You can use any kind of paper, notebook, journal, pens and pencils that you already have.
To make it even more easy (and beautiful) for you…
Watch THIS VIDEO to see how I am printing and using it – and to see the journal and bonus items UP-CLOSE!
There is one page per day, plus one page for an end of the week summary. Just print out this journal, grab you a pen or pencil, and you are good to go.
Personally, I like to use different colored pens or glitter gel pens, but any pen or pencil you have will work just fine.
Also, included with the journal are some bonus items:
• Clipart/Stickers – Print on cardstock, then cut and paste
in your journal or in your Bible. Or print on clear sticker or label paper.
Then cut out and add to your journal pages, Bible journaling pages, or other projects.
• Word Art – Trace onto the margins of this journal or onto the
margins of your journaling Bible. Or print on cardstock and glue
onto journal cards to create your own Scripture memory cards.
• Scripture Art – Print, frame and hang in your home.
Or print at a reduced size, then use as tip-ins in your journaling Bible,
or use as Scripture memory cards.
Sold separately, this Printable Journal + Bonus Bible Journaling Supplies would cost over $25! But this 40+ page Printable Journal / Bible Journaling Kit is priced at just $10.
