Journal Through The Bible – Week 4 {link up}

I am reading and journaling chronologically through the Bible in 2017. Each Sunday I will post one of my journaling pages and thoughts from that week’s reading. I will also have a linky for anyone who would like to participate to share how their Bible reading and journaling is going!

The Reading:

I managed to stay mostly on track with the reading this week. There were a few days I had to double up because I missed but I did get all of the reading done! This week the reading was all in the book of Job (Job 12-34). This is not one of my favorite books. Job’s wife and friends infuriate me; with family and friends like that who needs enemies? I also don’t understand why people use Job as an example of patience, as if he endured everything without complaint. Job complains A LOT! What he doesn’t do is turn from God, even though he complains and questions God’s motives he doesn’t reject God through it all. He also adamantly maintains his innocence while his friends suggest he must have done something to deserve what is happening to him. There are many gems to be gleaned from this book (obviously or it wouldn’t have been included in the Bible) but I have a hard time reading the repeated speeches by the unkind friends!


The Journaling:

The baby isn’t too thrilled about being put down yet so there wasn’t much time for journaling or art this week. It was a great week to take advantage of one of the preprinted coloring pages! I’m pretty happy with how it turned out.

I was joined again this week by Paulette’s Papers, I highly encourage you to check out her Week 3 Bible Journaling post from last week. Her art is beautiful and I’m very inspired by her use of water color on her pages-something I need to try in the near future!

  1. I am reading the Bible chronologically too! Getting a bit tired of Job at the moment, but bless his heart….we will make it through! I wish I was better at making art with my hands, love your journaling. Keep it up.

    • The preprinted pages really help!! I’m definitely still improving my actual art skills! And yes I’m ready to be through Job as well!!!

  2. I really prefer reading through the Bible chronologically. Job is a difficult book, but there are definitely nuggets of great wisdom in it, if we’re patient and diligent enough to look.

  3. I always wanted to read chronologically. I started it once and then my computer with my sheet crashed. That was years ago. There are probably lists and Bibles everywhere that have that info now.

    I also feel the same way about Abraham as an example of patience. He did just about everything he could to speed God up and begot Ishmael.

    • Yes there are many resources available if you would like to read chronologically! I highly recommend it. You are certainly right about Abraham, his impatience got him in some trouble!

  4. I have been really thinking hard about starting to do Bible journaling. I love the idea of pre-printed pages because I’m not sure how artistic I am.

    • The preprinted pages are nice! What I like about the Bible I have (and there are others that are similar) is that some of the pages have coloring designs on them but many are still blank so you can do both, or you can just write in the margins on the blank pages (if you want). I’m really not that artistic either, I’m learning but I am nothing compared to others who have beautiful work in their Bibles!
