I’m a Word Nerd

This can be taken a couple of different ways:

  1. I love the Word of God.
  2. I love the Words of God.

Sound the same, but here’s the difference – I love the entirety of Scripture. Genesis 1:1 – Revelation 22:21. Every single verse.

But I also love the words found in Scripture. I excavate meanings from the original language and usage. I explore names of places, ruminate over the meanings of names, and I research numbers. Every single word.

I feel if God felt it important enough to include in the body of Scripture, I need to understand the full value.

I didn’t always love the Word. For most of my life, I looked at it, carried it with me on Sundays to church, had the obligatory quiet time at camp, but felt completely mystified by this book.

But one day I began the Precept studies from Kay Arthur led by Debbie at the church we attended. I learned how to study the Bible for myself. I began to see connections in Scripture and loved it!

For the past seven years, I’ve studied on my own using the tools I learned in Precepts. This year I added the software Logos to my study time. While I barely touch the powerhouse that is is, I’m adding to my understanding of the passage I’m reading, and it is so rich!

So how does this relate to Bible journaling? So glad you asked 😉

When I first saw Bible journaling in an Instagram post 2 1/2 years ago, my heart leaped I’ve been a crafty girl since I was old enough to draw and glue. The option to combine my love for the Word and my creative side thrilled me.

I pray you will connect with God’s Word in a new way today whether you splash paint on the page or simply meditate on a verse.
