Bible Journaling

Here to inspire, encourage and to share God's love through Bible Journaling, Study and Lettering!❀ πŸ“– Isaiah 6:8 "Here I am. Send me."

More of You, less of me!πŸ™Œ . Let God be the One who has the highest priority in your life! Put your heavenly Father first and everything else will come to you! . Be less selfish and instead more loving and serve each other more!πŸ™Œ It's all about knowing and finding our identity in Christ. Fill your heart with His thoughts and words, not your own. Focus on the new you, the new creation you became in Jesus. Tell others about Jesus and share God's love!❀😍 . "He must become greater and greater, and I must become less and less." John 3:30
You are a living testimony!πŸ™Œ . Isn't it the most powerful thing to hear people testify about God has transformed their lives?πŸ˜ƒ At least for me, I am always amazed of how good God is and what His plans for our lives are. It surprises me again and again to see lives being changed, people being healed or prayed being answered! What is your testimony?❀ . "And we know that God causes everything to work together for the good of those who love God and are called according to his purpose for them." Romans 8:28
Whatever feels like a mountain, a struggle, a stone weighing you down and keeping you from what you're supposed to do - remember that God is BIGGER than that all! . There is no power on earth, not even the grave that can hold back God's mighty love for us. His will for our lives is good!πŸ™β€
Who are we to continually compare us with others if even our creator says that we are all created as masterpieces and in His image!❀ God has created you to be unique and encourages you to be who you truly are with an identity found in Him!πŸ™πŸ™Œ . "So God created human beings in His own image. In the image of God He created them; male and female he created them." Genesis 1:27 "For we are God’s masterpiece. He has created us anew in Christ Jesus, so we can do the good things He planned for us long ago." Ephesians 2:10
Forgiving means healing and letting go means grow!πŸ™β€ . The Bible teaches us a lot about what forgiving and letting go means. Even though people might treat you unfairly - try to be kind and don't forget who you belong to. Jesus says: "But I say, love your enemies! Pray for those who persecute you!" Matthew 5:44 In Colossians 3:13 it's written: "Make allowance for each other’s faults, and forgive anyone who offends you. Remember, the Lord forgave you, so you must forgive others." "When you're trying to forgive and let go, remember that you are not the judge. Let God be the judge in every situation you're in! β€œDo not judge others, and you will not be judged. For you will be treated as you treat others. The standard you use in judging is the standard by which you will be judged." Matthew 7:1‭-‬2
How can be learn to be disciples?πŸ™Œβ¬‡οΈ . Following Jesus means being a disciple! It's not only about listening to or reading about His teachings, but it's also about the action! It's about DOING what's written in the scripture! ⬇️ "But don’t just listen to God’s word. You must do what it says. Otherwise, you are only fooling yourselves." James 1:22 . Jesus says: "You are truly my disciples if you remain faithful to my teachings. And you will know the truth, and the truth will set you free." John 8:31‭-‬32 . Discipleship means becoming more and more like Jesus in everything that we do! β€πŸ™ So that means we should: . REMAIN faithful to His teaching, ACT the way Jesus would, LOVE our neighbor as ourselves, FORGIVE others and TAKE up your cross and follow Jesus!❀
When God steps in, miracles happen!πŸ™ . The other day I asked in my stories what miracle you're praying for and there were so many of you who answered and continually pray to God for a miracle to happen in their or other's life. Throughout the Bible we can read over and over again how God spoke into people's lives, transformed or healed them and how miracles happened. Let this be your reminder that God is still the same and He can make anything that is according to His will happen! He has the power. πŸ™β€πŸ™Œ "Jesus Christ is the same yesterday, today, and forever." Hebrews 13:8
I will praise You, whether I am on the highest mountains or in the deepest valleys!πŸ™Œ . When the mountain's in your way, pray that it will move! πŸ™β¬‡οΈ "He replied, β€œBecause you have so little faith. Truly I tell you, if you have faith as small as a mustard seed, you can say to this mountain, β€˜Move from here to there,’ and it will move. Nothing will be impossible for you.”" Matthew 17:20 . Your prayer can MOVE MOUNTAINS! Believe it and pray BIG! If it's God's will it will be done!πŸ™ Never underestimate the power of constant prayerπŸ˜ŠπŸ™Œβ€
You're reminder for today!β¬†οΈπŸ˜‡ . Expect great joy! Expect miracles! Expect a new beginning! Expect a transformation!πŸ™ . What you're going through right now is not the end. It can't compare to the joy you will feel when God makes it all happen for you! There is a plan for you to give you a future and a hope! Rely on God and let Him surprise you! He will bless you beyond your imagination! Expect it to happen!!❀😍 "Yet what we suffer now is nothing compared to the glory he will reveal to us later." Romans 8:18
God woke you up for a reason today!❀ . There's a reason why God chose to create you and a reason why He wakes you up every day! He has a purpose for you and needs you to do what He has called you to do. How are you building His kingdom today?πŸ™Œ Make the choice to serve Him and use the privilege He gave you!πŸ™ "You saw me before I was born. Every day of my life was recorded in your book. Every moment was laid out before a single day had passed." Psalms 139:16
Long for more of God!πŸ™ . How much do you desire to be closer to God? Growing closer and closer with God should be our main goal, He's the One who can truly complete us and who can satisfy our soul! So feed yourself with Bible verses, worship and input daily so that you let God come CLOSER and CLOSER to you!😍 "Come close to God, and God will come close to you." James 4:8 . "As the deer longs for streams of water, so I long for you, O God." Psalms 42:1
Only God can turn your tests into testimonies and your battles into blessings!πŸ™ . When He comes into the picture situations change and people are being transform. Focus all you have on Him. You don't have to fight this battle alone. He is with you. "The Lord Himself will fight for you. Just stay calm.” Exodus 14:14
