We're bombarded by all kinds of verses & prayer challenges in our social media feeds. Some days we may find encouragement and other days we might be overwhelmed. I try to select something that "fits" into my daily rhythm, something that will pull me in a little deeper and inspire me to linger a little longer in the Word.
Recently I printed off a set of 40-day Praying the Promises cards developed by Arabah Joy because I thought the content would be good for me during my current season. I started by looking up the scripture references & writing out the verses on the back of the cards.
I chose a couple of #biblequiltjournal templates to use so I could capture these strong words that are reminders of God's promises for each of us.
Each day as I add a verse, I reflect on the previous verses and maybe add a little doodling...
And, gradually, the page fills up...
How powerfully all of these scriptures woven together
can impact our spiritual journey!
I attached this completed first page into my Bible Quilt journal and glued on a tab. Then I started on the second page, using the Block-20 template.
Sometimes I used stickers or stamped when I wanted a variation from my own handwriting.
Then I added strips of washi tape and colored the background of the quilt squares, using a similar palette as on the 1st page.
As I worked my way through the verses that Arabah Joy selected, I felt a collaborative kinship with her. Although we haven't met in person, we're now connected through these scriptures.
We can share the Word with one another in a lot of different ways. This one is dear to my heart. I've been deeply blessed to engage with other women through Bible Quilting & I hope it blesses you, too!
