Journaling Through The Bible – Week 23 {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:

I missed a couple days this week but I’m really trying to stay caught up. I keep trying to get up before the kids to have a quiet time but they keep getting up right after I do which makes it hard to get motivated to get up early!!

This week was mostly in Ecclesiastes. I have to admit, this isn’t a book I have ever paid much attention to. It is kind of depressing honestly. I think I’ve only ever read it when doing the Bible read through like I am now. Perhaps some day I’ll do an actual study on it and understand its point better!


The Journaling:

I wasn’t feeling great when I did this page. I was over tired and my hands were a bit shakey so the coloring isn’t wonderful. I’m sharing anyway because I want you to know your journaling doesn’t need to always be an amazing work of art. It isn’t about impressing anyone it is about expressing your reverence for God’s word through your creativity and meditating on His Word in a new way!!

Side note about this particular verse: we discussed in our Sunday School class a couple weeks ago how a raven, which is usually a symbol of death, was used here to bring life sustaining food. Just an interesting note.

Kids, Crunch, and Christ Journal Through The Bible



Well I’m running a little later than usual. We were out of town part of the weekend and recovery is slow going. I basically took the week off from blogging which I  obviously needed but was sad not to get another farm update posted for y’all! This week I have two reviews coming up and am hoping to get that update posted and share all about our poultry. I’m also hoping to get a post up about my health and what I’m doing about it but that may end up being early next week. Stay tuned!! In personal news we got busier than I like to be last week so I made some decisions that will help us slow down a bit this week.



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. I am finally reading Revelations. I have been putting it off because the other times I’ve tried to read Revelations, it was so confusing. So, this time only one chapter at a time and making notes to help decipher what is being said. I’m pretty much finished reading all the way through other than the short scriptures, and then it will be time to start again and re-read and make new notes. Glad you referenced the raven and it’s usual meaning. God is amazing in how he can use whatever to the best situation. 🙂 He is awesome.

    • Revelation is a hard chapter! But definitely worth studying (as they all are of course). I found that after I studied Daniel in depth I understood Revelations a bit better.

  2. Beautiful! I love reading through the Bible, but always find myself getting convicted by a certain book of the Bible. Each year it is a different book that I feel God wants me to stay in. I do not have any posts written about Bible journaling, but I do have a funny story- this year I have noticed that several of the insights I wrote in my Bible are now fading. I find myself looking at the prayers I have written, in the margins, and wondering what they said. I know that God must have spoken something wonderful to me, in those notes, but I just cannot make them out. 😀😀😀

    • Hi Erin! Thanks for sharing! Any post related to Bible reading is welcome in this linkup it doesn’t have to have journaling. I also accept posts about Bible journaling in general that aren’t specific to a passage. Great to see you here!
