How Does A Daily Scripture Writing Plan Work?
What is Scripture Writing?
Inside: What is Scripture Writing and How to Get Started
As a child, I remember the old kitchen phone in my parents house, it hung on the wall by the fridge. I don’t remember its color, but I remember it being the only phone in the house, pushing its circle buttons and the loud ringing sound it made. It’s amazing how far technology has come.
One time, when trying to call a friend, on this kitchen phone, somehow my call got connected to a strangers call mid discussion. They didn’t even know I was listening in. Group phone calls!
Even now, with all its advances, smart phones still have bad connections. When I’m driving around town, I know the valleys and hills to stay away from that will cause an interference on my phone calls.
Benefits of Scripture Writing
I get interferences on occasion with my daily quiet time and talking to God. On my end, I assure you, it’s never on God’s end.
Life seems to swiftly take control, like flood waters pushing everything out its way.
The past two weeks have been fierce. I look around at the damage that difficult circumstances have left in my life. ugh!
I read my bible, but the words stand still, in plain black and white instead of reaching deep inside my heart and soul with color, comfort and correction.
How to Get Started with Scripture Writing
The goal of Scripture engagement is to meet God in his Word.
Once I realized this, I stopped in my tracks. I asked God to forgive me for not being more intentional with my walk with Him and for allowing an interference between us.
I’ve always enjoyed scripture writing versus bible journaling. I’m not a talented doodle-ist, (<<<— is that a word?) but there is something about writing out God’s word that makes me stop and focus on Him.
What is Scripture Writing and How to Get Started
Here is how I like to do my daily scripture writing.
#1 Either research a certain word or topic in the bible, a topic that you are want to focus on. For example: Love, Joy, Peace, Faith, Overcoming, Biblical Marriage, Dating, Fear, etc. OR follow me for my scripture writing challenges as I’m already putting in the work to hunt down topic bible verses.
If you do it on your own, find one verse per day of the month, if you are doing a monthly scripture writing challenge. You most definitely can do this on a weekly basis as well.
#2 Get a notebook, planner or something to write on and a pen or pencil.
#3 Colored pens, markers or pencils are great to color in your doodles or brighten up the white space around the scripture verse you write out.
#4 Pray. Praying over and during my scripture writing time has been so beneficial to my walk with God. I pray for forgiveness, guidance, for my eyes and ears to know and recognize when the Holy Spirit moves and guides me. I worship God. Humbly, being so grateful for everything. In prayer, I allow God to wrap His arms around me.
#5 Get started! Make an appointment with yourself, notebook, and God everyday for your scripture writing time.
It’s that easy! It doesn’t have to be fancy or complicated.
Scripture Writing Will Help Set Us Free
I pray as I do my Scripture Writing.
I ask God to deeply embed the scripture in my heart, mind and soul.
I repeat the scripture in my head or out-loud, over and over so that I might hide it in my heart. Deeply securing it into the depths of my being.
As I pray I ask God to reveal what He’d like me to know or understand about Him, His view of me and the scripture that day.
