One of my simple delights these days is the journaling bible Greg presented me a year ago for our 6-month anniversary. It’s a beautiful old-leather bound bible with a tie that wraps around it in journaling style. It has wide margins on the sides for me to write in.
I didn’t put it to use very much before the internship, but in the past 10 months, it has become a dear, dear friend. : ) I love how my sermon notes, questions, thoughts, dreams, miracles and musings about The Word can go directly into the margins of the many pages of scripture. I love paper journals and such, but my journaling bible allows me to see my revelation scribble whenever I turn to a particular passage — which is so helpful on those days when I come across a passage and see what God revealed to me in the past. I’ve been able to see how my relationship with Him has grown through the dying to self stories and notes I’ve written to myself in the past months. It’s truly a beautiful thing when you see how He takes you from glory to glory.
“Write the vision; make it plain on tablets, so he may run who reads it. For still the vision awaits its appointed time; it hastens to the end—it will not lie. If it seems slow, wait for it; it will surely come; it will not delay.” Habakkuk 2:2-3
