Isaiah 40:31 and 2 Timothy 1:7

Doodling! It's good to doodle anything you want to remember, and for me that includes Bible verses. I've never been great at committing them to memory.
2 Timothy 1:7 is one of my favorite verses. I love verses about the strength we get from God. In my church we hear lots about kindness, forgiveness and loving...which are great, great things...but we don't hear as much about the love, power, strength and self-control we are gifted with, and we should exercise and grow stronger. That's my opinion....thus the "Woot woot!" at the top...because that's how I feel about this!

I will sometimes take the time to draw, and other times I think I'll do something simple like these outlined letters.

Bible Journaling

 I've been loving the Bible journaling I've been seeing online, and since I learn visually and by doing, I thought this might be a good idea for me. The bible I've been using is HUGE, and also has those ultra thin pages. I think most things, even pencil marks show through those pages, so I followed some links for "journaling bibles" and found one that I liked.
The overall size is nicer for carrying, the pages are slightly thicker, and there is space on each page to write or draw notes and thoughts about what I'm reading.

This is my first attempt. I used watercolor pencils because you can still read the text beneath. The page crinkled a bit when I added water, but not too badly, and it doesn't bother me. Let's just say it adds character!

If you'd like to see more examples from lots of folks, just follow this link to a google search.
