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!
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 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.
What I used for this entry:
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!
