Our theme for October in our Month-by-Month Bible Quilt Journal series is
- - - PROVISION - - -
We are incredibly blessed in this country, aren't we? Simply doing a grocery run at Costco or Sam's and seeing all the carts filled to the brim is a reminder of how accessible food is for us. Often you can even get a sampler plate while you're at it!
Sometimes we take these daily errands for granted. We need to acknowledge... and be thankful for the Lord's provision.
I'm getting ready for October by decorating my calendar page with fall washi tape and planner stickers, adding the daily scripture references along the way.
Can you believe we're going into the last quarter of 2021? The reference lists are available here. Thanks to Fran for cultivating our list of scriptures for this month!
You can print them out on card stock and even laminate them for greater durability. Experiment with colored card stock if you'd like!
I printed mine on green, then added some seasonal embellishments. For a final touch after laminating, I hole-punched each one and tied a ribbon on the top.
Occasionally we'll catch a typo in our references. If you've previously downloaded the bookmark set, please note that on Day 6 the verse is from Luke 12:24.
Curious about my process for prepping each month? Here's a brief overview to help you personalize your own process:
Each month gives us a fresh outlook to pray over our family and be intentional re: carving out time for our spiritual maintenance, too. Selecting a theme verse to put on my calendar helps me with this focus.
"And God is able to bless you abundantly, so that in all things at all times, having all that you need, you will abound in every good work." 2 Corinthians 9:8
Once I've got my flip card set completed, it serves as a resource as I begin #biblequilting the daily verses.
Throughout October we'll gradually be adding scriptures and the page will fill up with a beautiful collection of verses on Provision. You can work on the featured template any time.
The BQ calendar also has a pumpkin design, so you've got several options for harvesting scripture this month!
What other themes come to mind in conjunction with Provision?
I'm thinking abundance, blessings... those will tuck in nicely as we enter the season of thanksgiving. Last year we did 31 Days of Quiet in October, so you may be interested in those posts also.
Drop your ideas in the comment section.
And we can brainstorm together at our next gathering. See you then!
