|2015...Are you ready?|
So the question is how to meditate on the word other than memorization, which is good too. I meditate by Bible journaling. All you need is a Bible with wide margins, some colored pencils, an ink pen, and a heart to hear God speaking. There is a Bible journaling Facebook group where I get some of my inspiration. I have used the Home Grown Hospitality website as well. Some of my pages are original with me, some spring from inspiration from others.

How did I get started Bible journaling? I think when you really want to do something, God gives the answer...sometimes in the most unexpected places, or circumstances. One of my go to websites is Home grown hospitality. This lady loves the Lord, and has such creativity. It was here that I learned about Bible journaling...you journal in your Bible your faith walk. She had a blog post on it...several in fact. I also learned about the "Documented Faith project 2015". It is a free class where you will find weekly inspiration. Just click on the tab "Documented Faith" on the Homegrown hospitality page to participate for 2015. From there, I learned about another website: His-kingdom-come. I signed up for Bible journaling class for 2015. I am ready, maybe sort of, for 2015.
My problem is time. I need time to do this. I already have trouble getting done all the things I want to do. Alistair Begg just finished a series on the 10 commandments. I was very convicted with all of them, but one that left a big impression was "Remember the Sabbath and keep it Holy." It is to be a day set aside for God, and God alone...not for cleaning, getting caught up, etc. I have decided to keep it set apart for God using this day to journal how God has spoken, and taught me that week. I have a Moleskine notebook to keep track of it all. This is how the calendar looks when you buy it.

Here is my decorated 2015 Moleskine calendar ready for my first entry. I added tabs at the top for the 12 months...there are how to's at Homegrown Hospitality.
