Join us in celebrating the two year anniversary of the Give Me Jesus Journal!
Learn more about the 2015 Christmas Collection!
The purpose of the “Give Me Jesus Journal” is to provide a meeting place for you to come with your Bible, a pen and an open heart. Devotionals, Bible studies and books are incredible resources, but the words of man will never compare or give life to the heart like the words of God do. In high school I did my first Beth Moore study and it changed my life. I didn’t realize how much treasure was in the Bible! Beth Moore inspired me to know Jesus like she did. If she could read Scripture and glean so much truth from it, then I knew with the Holy Spirit in me, I could as well. And you can, too!
God planted a seed in my heart in January.
A seed to know Him and make Him known.A tiny seed to He began to water each day as I came to Him in His Word, hungry to know truth and to be set free from the ways of this world. As He has watered the seed, He has changed me in the process. The vision of Life Lived Beautifully is not to be a business, but to be a ministry that meets women right where they are everyday with the truth and hope of the gospel of Jesus Christ.
Two weeks ago we began a series called “Well-Watered Women” diving deep into practical ways we can study the Bible! You can catch up on the posts here: Part 1, Part 2, Part 3, Part 4, and Part 5. This week, we are going to continue this series with more ways we can not only study Scripture, but begin to live it out and arrange our life and our days around the truths of the Word. Today, we will focus on our response to studying God’s Word. We should not only be readers and studiers of the Bible, but we should also be doers.
It still amazes me that today we launch the new spring Give Me Jesus Journals. It was just one year ago this month that the Lord began to stir in my heart the vision for the journal. Last May we had the first version of the journal in hand and sold out of the order within one hour. I had absolutely no idea what God would do with these journals and God-sized dream. It began as a tiny mustard seed of faith that God planted and is continuing to water to grow into a garden for His glory! With my knees to the floor and my hands lifted high to the Lord in praise, I am excited to partake in the gospel of grace with you as we study God’s Word together!
Today we are in day 3 of our “Well-Watered Women” series on how to study the Bible! In the first day’s post on being “In The Word” I shared how I spend time daily in the Scripture as well as a challenge for us to commit the first moments of our days to the Lord. Yesterday’s post answered the question “Why The Word?” We unveiled some insecurities we have in coming to the Word of God and pointed to how we are to come to Scripture and how we are to go and take the message into the world. Today, we will talk about different ways we can study the Bible and break down Scripture!
I have been an avid-journaler since I was in the 7th grade. I attended a private, Christian school and had a Bible teacher who taught us about the importance of studying the Bible as well as journaling. Prior to hearing this, I only considered journaling as a sort of diary where I wrote down my feelings, what happened in my day, and anything else that popped into my head. Needless to say, there wasn’t much fruit from these diaries in elementary school, other than the fruit of laughter when I read what I wrote! My teacher had us start a journal in class that we used to answer hard questions and study the depths of Scripture. I began to see the importance of writing out my thoughts, thinking critically, and talking to the Lord each day.
For months now I have been praying through the ultimate vision of Life Lived Beautifully. Over the past year of adventuring with the Lord in owning a small business, I have learned time and time again that this business is not about me. The shop, the blog, the Instagram, the journal, the art prints, the […]
