As I was sitting in my sukkah, reading Scripture, I thought it would be nice to have some sort of journal that would help me to think through the passage more, and apply it to my life. I had printed some Bible study guides off the internet, but they just weren't working for me. They were usually too vague. I love copying Scripture, but I also wanted to specifically apply the passage to myself. So, after jotting down some ideas and notes in my sukkah, I came up with this journal. I love how it helps me to slow down and think through the passage. I know the value of using more of my brain to write the verses as well as read them. I also like that the prompts cause me to look at myself honestly and compare my character to Scripture. Most importantly, anytime I spend time in Scripture, I should walk away with a better understanding of who my God is.
Here are the different sections you'll find in each two-page spread.
Space to write the reference for the passage you are reading
Lots of space to copy all or part of the passage
A box for jotting down cross references or similar passages, to be studied later
A place to list positive and negative commands
A place for examples from Bible characters
Room to write specific changes I need to make in my life
At the end, I am prompted to learn more and write about YHVH's character, and look for references to Yeshua.
