I am reading and journaling chronologically through the Bible in 2018. Each Sunday I will post one of my journaling pages and thoughts from that week’s reading. There are several ways for you to participate see below for details!
I finished up Job this week and started Exodus! As I’ve mentioned before, I find Job a challenging book but I love when I finally get to the point where God speaks. While He does scold Job a bit he really tells off Job’s friends for their arrogance then he restores Job’s status, health, and wealth to even greater than what it was before. This is such a great picture of the fact that while we may suffer for a time God is faithful to make it right (even if that doesn’t happen until we get to Heaven).
Exodus is full of familiar stories but I generally find something new to ponder in its chapters. I was out of town when I got to Exodus this week and forgot my journaling Bible. Luckily I had the schedule posted in the Facebook Group and was able to use my Bible app to keep up. God called Moses to a position that he was not qualified for and Moses knew it, as evidenced by his exhaustive efforts to argue his way out of it! I believe God calls those who do not appear qualified on the outside so that there is no doubt it is HIS power working through that individual and not something that individual is doing alone. At least I know this is true in my own life.
I kept it simple this week, in part due to the fact that my time was even more limited than normal. I think this simple phrase sums up a good bit of this week’s reading and is very appropriate. My hand lettering needs some work but I’m committed to keep trying and showing you what I’ve done in all its imperfection!
What I used for this entry:
Part of my study this year includes writing out scriptures on certain subjects. They are women and marriage; children, family, and behavior; and feelings and the character of God. I keep these in three different sections of a multi-subject notebook. I share the scriptures I find in the facebook group, join me there to follow along!

I spent three days this week at a planning meeting for our region’s Operation Christmas Child Area Coordinators. I am continually impressed with the organization’s dedication not only to distributing shoeboxes but to caring for its volunteers and equipping volunteer leaders to serve their area team as well as participating churches, organizations, and individuals. I’ve said it many times, this is by far the best organization I have ever volunteered for (and I’ve volunteered for quite a few). It was also just lovely to spend a few days surrounded by people with the same calling and passion. I was both exhausted and refreshed when I got home!
