Journaling Through The Bible – Week 17 {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!


I am reading and journaling through the entire Bible in Chronological order in 2017, join me on my linkup!


The Reading:

This week we were still primarily in Samuel reading about David becoming king and all of his conquests. Davids plethora of wives has always sort of confused me…..especially when you add in Bathsheba. And he was still called the man after God’s own heart. Hmmm. Guess that demonstrates that God can change any heart and use even the most flawed humans.


The Journaling:

This was a quick and simple page again. Some of it is a bit messy because my pencil kept breaking. I would sharpen it and the lead would immediately break over and over. I guess it is time for new pencils!

Kids, Crunch, and Christ Journal Through The Bible




I think life might be slowly settling down a bit. Today the kids cleaned the house for me without being told to so that is pretty awesome. Yesterday was a horrible, no good, very bad, day but we survived. I have some health concerns that have been slowly creeping in but have been confirmed this week so I am going to be doing a lot to work on that and slow my life down to allow for healing. I will discuss that more in later posts.


This post is linked up to Scripture and a Snapshot at Glimpses of Our Life and Sunday Scripture Blessings at Peabea Scribbles and Inspire Me Monday at Create With Joy.

  1. Thanks for sharing your thoughts on journaling through the Bible and for hosting a link-up.

    Praying for God’s healing and restoration and for discernment to see where the Lord would have you “slow down”.


  2. David’s story is one of my favorite characters in reading the Bible. He’s adored, then he’s scorned and just seems he can’t get a break. I agree, his story is confusing. Reading the Old Testament to me is also confusing because they get a chance and every time it seems they blow it, but it is a great testament to God’s forgivingness. Seems they have a hard time learning, and leads to the need for Jesus to go to the cross. Forgiveness once and for all.
