Power of God

Updated: May 30

Do you ever see something that causes you to stop midstride and wonder about the miracle of God's creation? He provides such beauty in the gritty crevices of life. His power is reflected in wonders big and small.


We have simple phrases like "April showers bring May flowers," yet somehow these don't capture the inherent power of God woven throughout our daily lives and seasonal transitions.

Last month we explored the Promises of God, diving into scriptures that reflected the Lord's faithfulness time and time again.


This month we're going to focus on verses that highlight the POWER of God.


"We are strengthened according to His glorious POWER unto all patience and long-suffering with joyfulness." Colossians 1:11


I'm getting started by prepping the May calendar in the Monthly BQJ, adding the daily verses, events, and embellishing it with spring/floral stickers.


Ready to roll into May with me?



Our collection of verses this month is from Raini (Houston, TX). She sent this lovely statement along with her scriptures:


"I have loved doing a study on these verses and the major thing learned is that in the Bible we see God's external power like creation, the Exodus, etc. And then we get to learn about how we have His power internally.


Wow - just to think that the same incredible power that He spoke the heavens and the earth into creation, He shares with us in our lives to walk in newness of life. O Lord, our Lord, how majestic is thy name!" - Raini


Raini used the Scofield Reference Bible Authorized King James Version for her verses unless otherwise noted.


You can get the printable reference list and make a handy bookmark to use as you look up the daily scriptures.

The next step is to write out the daily verses onto a flip card set.


This will familiarize you with the scriptures and also provide you with a handy resource to carry with you throughout the month.


If you'd like a jumpstart on your flip cards, here's a printable set with all the verses typed and formatted for you:



Now we're ready to begin "quilting" these scriptures onto the 2-page spread in the 2022 Monthly Bible Quilt Journal.

Choose whichever page and quilt square you'd like to begin. Consider the length of the verse to estimate the best fit. Sometimes I'll select a portion of the verse that captures the main point related to our topic, referring to the full verse I've got on my flip card set as a resource.


Power of God, day 1

Gradually the page will fill up with all these scriptures based on the same topic and provide us with a unique perspective of how they connect together on the theme of power throughout the Bible.


Power of God, day 2

The featured template for May is this one called Power to remind us of what God the Almighty can do in this world He created.
