Hello! My name is Sue and welcome to the Journaling for Jesus website.
I am from South Africa and I love traveling and exploring the beautiful earth that God created.God is the foundation of my life, and what better way to celebrate this every day than with praise and worship to our heavenly father.
Journaling for Jesus was started as I learned about the therapeutic benefits of coloring. This together with a desire to be nestled in God’s word, and to discover and read the Bible more has an amazing impact on ones life.
When I researched Bible journaling, I was overwhelmed at first because all the Bible journaling websites I saw indicated that you needed to create your own drawings and purchase a few different stencils. They also had drawings all over the scripture, which I found very distracting as you could hardly see the scriptures in the Bible.
I came across a few Bible journals that come with illustrations throughout the Bible, ready for you to color in. This truly creates a new experience and a way of learning more about God and reading your Bible as you color in different scripture illustrations on the side margins of the Bible pages.
My hope is for people to learn of this amazing way of praising and worshiping God. It is a great way to express your creativity while praising God and staying locked into his word.
What Keeps us Motivated
Everyone on earth faces trials and tribulations, the bible tells us this will happen. But many times we forget about the most powerful weapon we have been given to help us during these times, the bible. It also gives us rules for living.
Bible journaling is an amazing way to glorify and worship God while leaning on his words for wisdom and strength.
This website is created to encourage Christians to read their bibles and get in fellowship with our Lord and Saviour. Its created to encourage people to turn to the bible daily and meditate on God’s word. Its created to encourage us to meditate on the words of the bible and keep God’s commands in our hearts.
Most of the content on this website is about establishing and maintaining a relationship with God. There are many ways we can do this and this website will focus on affirmations, bible verses and bible study.
“12 For the word of God is alive and active. Sharper than any double-edged sword, it penetrates even to dividing soul and spirit, joints and marrow; it judges the thoughts and attitudes of the heart.”
The Goal of Journaling for Jesus
The purpose of this website is to bring awareness to more and more Christians about the art of bible journaling. Not only is it fun, but its such an amazing way to study the bible and to be in fellowship with God. Bible journaling allows us to express creativity while meditating on the word of God.
This website is a central place where you can find guidance on bible journaling, affirmations for all situations in life and great bible verses to meditate on for different experiences in life.
Most of all, the point is to have fun and be creative while the Holy Spirit leads you to learn more about God and meditating on his scriptures.
2 Timothy 3:16-17
“16 All Scripture is God-breathed and is useful for teaching, rebuking, correcting and training in righteousness, 17 so that the servant of God[a] may be thoroughly equipped for every good work.”
