2020 was our first year to join together with a monthly theme and #biblequilt a daily verse on that monthly topic. That's 365 verses written by hand and tucked into our hearts!
We've got some newcomers joining us this year, so I thought it would be helpful to show some completed pages. These monthly spreads are wonderful resources to tap into again and again for yourself and to share with others when they need particular encouragement.
30 Days of Resurrection (April 2020)
31 Days of Courage (July 2020)
31 Days of Comfort (August 2020)
30 Days of Gratitude (November 2020)
Several members of the Bible Quilt community contributed to these monthly series by collecting scripture on a particular topic. I'm grateful to these sisters-in-Christ who have walked beside me in this process and excited for others who have joined us along the way.
The beauty of the #monthlybiblequiltjournal technique is that these pages can be reviewed and used as a springboard for focused prayer when you or a loved one needs a particular type of encouragement from the Word. Although these pages were created in 2020, the scriptures can be used anytime.
Each of us goes through different seasons of need and require different kinds of input to get us through our own unique challenges. I'd invite you to tap into that theme/topic that truly resonates with you right now and start there. Dwell in the Word wherever YOU need to be.
"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." Hebrews 4:12
I'm hopeful that these #biblequiltjournal techniques serve as a guide to help you in your journey of faith. I throw a lot of ideas out there, but encourage you to find the pace and process that works best for you. Sometimes we need support and a little structure. When you do, I pray that you find encouragement and new ideas in this community of Bible Quilters.
We've got a wonderful line-up of topics for 2021 and invite YOU to join us!
You can use the 2021 Monthly Bible Quilt Journal, add template pages into your original BQJ, flip card sets, or simply do scripture writing in whatever notebook you have handy. Just enjoy your time in the Word!
