Doodling in my Bible isn’t new to me.
I was doing in it long before I discovered bible journaling.
But this little (not so little) community of people who color in their Bible inspire me daily to dive into God’s Word.
For those of you that havent seen the new #illustratedfaith kit yet… pretend you just got it in the mail… That yellow, those doodles! Oh this looks like a FUN kit!
The creations of Elaine Davis are always inspiring and BRIGHT and super fun… and this kit is nothing less than awesomeness! Look at all of this goodness!
I’m amazed at how creative God is… While Elaine may be the person who threw it all together the ideas came from God. Elaine’s fun and quirky side is totally seen in this kit, and I love that God created her that way.
Look at that washi and these stickers! The colors of this kit is just so FUN and bright! I really like it. I mean how could you not?!
Once I got the kit and saw that “doodles” was the theme, I decided to take a more simple approach to my journaling with this kit. Now lets be honest, in this season of my life I don’t have the time I would like to devote to journaling… girls I can journal for hours!!! But with being a work at home mom boss and homeschooling 2 girlies and having 2 littles + church planting… well let’s just say THERE IS NOT ENOUGH TIME IN THE DAY!!! and since my One Little Word this year is REST… I’m going to try to do a better job of that in May with this kit!
SOOOO back to what I was saying about being simple (gosh lol) I’m going to throw this devo into my Freckled Fawn travelers notebook #doedori planner (which Elaine posted on her instagram a while back and it was so cute that I had to get me one too!)
I’m going to TRY to keep my journaling simple and since these will already be in my planner that goes everywhere with me anyways… I SHOULD be able to journal everyday!
I think we need to be in the WORD everyday y’all!
And sometimes I’m not.
I’m too busy.
That’s a horrible excuse!
I KNOW HE fills my cup and refreshes me when I spend time with HIM.
But even though I KNOW this, sometimes it’s HARD to do.
So May is going to be different! (Actually I already started Day 1 because I couldn’t help myself… but that’s another post for another day!)
I’m going SIMPLE!
I’m offering myself GRACE!
My STORY is full of crazy busy!
And I am learning to LOVE MY STORY!
My STORY is HIS story!
Won’t you join my in offering GRACE to ourselves,
JOURNALING everyday even if it’s simple and start loving
the STORY that we are creating with GOD?!
