Bullet Journal Spread for Bible Study & Devotionals

Bullet Journal Spread for Bible Study & Devotionals

I am currently reading Beth Guckenberger’s 40 day devotional “Reckless Faith” -a 40 day journey to saying yes.

Beth Guckenberger has compiled forty life-changing messages to encourage a life of reckless faith. This devotional journey walks through the adventure and joy that follows a yes to Jesus. Through a unique approach of reflecting on experiences to create internal change and external action steps, each day tells personal stories of when she accepted a challenge to grow. Some stories take place on the mission field and some around her table, but all hold insight to inspire a life with Jesus, who longs to work in and through us all. This journey will help you: – Experience reckless faith adventures – Relate biblical truths to your daily life – Understand God’s heart for others

About Beth

Beth and her husband, Todd, live with their family in Cincinnati, Ohio where they serve as Co-Executive Directors of Back2Back Ministries. After graduating from Indiana University, the Guckenbergers moved to Monterrey, Mexico where they lived for 15 years. Between biological, foster, and adopted children, they have raised ten children.

Beth is the author of eight books including adult and children’s titles. She travels and speaks regularly at conferences, youth gatherings and church services. Her style is based in story-telling and she draws from her vast field experience as a missionary, Bible teacher and parent for illustrations of biblical concepts.

Beth is an incredible story teller, and for this visual learner, she illuminates truth like no other. The Lord has blessed her with the ability to communicate spiritual truth with a humility and compassion that completely draws you to HIM. Through the power of the Holy Spirit you will be moved. She speaks from experience out in the trenches, doing God’s work…stumbling along the way, as she becomes more like Christ with each step. She invites you into her journey and you walk away friends:)

Today, I want to share my process for journaling this 40 day devotional with you. It can be used to journal any devotional or scripture study, but works perfectly with the way Beth sets up each daily entry in her book.

Above is my Journal. Baron Fig Confidant. (Slightly smaller than A5) There are definitely aspects about it that I don’t like. I fixed one issue by painting the front and back with acrylic paint. (It has a linen like cover that picks up dirt and grease, yuk!) The layout of the book and the size are certainly to my liking, but the pages are very thin, and don’t hold up well with any heavier applications of pen/marker or paint. I primarily use watercolor and microns, so I can manage, but below is my FAVORITE dot bullet journal that will take almost ANY product without bleed through! (And I love the wipeable cover!) Size/A5

Each of the 40 days in “Reckless Faith” contain: an Experience, a reflection Scripture, Probing Reflective Questions, and an Action step. Below is how I set up my spread to utilize these elements.

LEFT SIDE PAGE

I use the top left box (Date/March) to write the FACTS/TRUTHS I pull from the scripture highlighted(top right), using the 3,2,1 Method of Study.

In the “Action space” (left page top right space next to the Date/Truth box) I write my “Response” The ACTION God is calling me to take. I try to write this in the form of a plan that I can implement daily. Beth gives you a specific task to accomplish which is a great way to put what you’ve learned into DOING:)

RIGHT SIDE PAGE

In the top Right box I RE-WRITE the scripture. I find that the simple exercise of prayerfully re-writing scripture helps me meditate over it and remember it! Ask the Holy Spirit for direction and insight, He will teach you “the deep things of God that you do not know!” (1 Corinthians 2)

The vertical box on the lower left side of the right page is where I place a specific WORD that jumps out at me in the story Beth shares or a lesson point she makes. Sometimes, I write a phrase…it’s usually the main point for the day:)

On the lower Right Side (of the right page) I describe the Word box in more detail. Sometimes I add a visual using a drawing or photo.

I pre-cut thin, brown paper bags to use as a 3 x 4 background or I tear pieces of recycled bags and place “strategically” on any of the sections. I also pre-cut watercolor squares/rectangles to use for paintings/drawings. This way, you can create something outside your journal, and will get better results on watercolor paper. MANY TIMES, I cover up boo boos by adding paper! If I cannot correct an oops, I just grab paper, glue it in, and cover it up!

This is a COVER UP (left page bottom) over my notes section where I made a big boo boo!

I spend a big chunk of time each morning studying and creating my pages.(1-2 hours) I save time by drawing out the page layout structure, a week at a time, on the weekend. I typically do one, 2 page spread, 5 days a week and use the weekend to layout my pages so they are ready to fill in during the week.

THE PODCASTS ARE GREAT!

I’ve included a FREE printable that you can use to make your own stickers! You can find sticker paper on amazon HERE.

Hopefully I’ve given you some resources that will be useful to you as you spend precious time with the Lord.

“The Lord bless you
    and keep you;
the Lord make his face shine on you
    and be gracious to you;
the Lord turn his face toward you
    and give you peace.”’

Free At Last

Free At Last

A message by Dr. Tony Evans

WOW, my fingers got tired typing the notes from today’s lesson! There was so much! (You can listen to it for free by going to your App Store and searching Tony Evans)

John 8:31-36

31 To the Jews who had believed him, Jesus said, “If you hold to my teaching, you are really my disciples. 32 Then you will know the truth, and the truth will set you free.”

33 They answered him, “We are Abraham’s descendants and have never been slaves of anyone. How can you say that we shall be set free?”

34 Jesus replied, “Very truly I tell you, everyone who sins is a slave to sin. 35 Now a slave has no permanent place in the family, but a son belongs to it forever. 36 So if the Son sets you free, you will be free indeed.

In a nutshell, Tony teaches the above text like this:

We can live like we believe we are free, but we operate within the prison walls we have set up for ourselves due to our sin. (Which will always keep us separated from our Father, and the good things He has for us)

We need to gut the room, instead of covering it up with more wall paper. We need surgery, but instead, we take pain relievers to deal with a problem that will not go away without the Great Physician. “Rejecting the truth, is killing us.” -Tony Evans

Freedom-is being liberated or released from illegitimate bondage or limitations in order for us to become all that we were created and then redeemed to be.” -Tony Evans

UNLESS we abide (remain, rest, dwell, stay…in God’s Word) we will not know truth, which will keep us from the freedom Christ is waiting to give us! We can hear truth, but to live it, we must step forward and take the hand of Christ.

A final thought Dr. Evans gave us today came from John 11.

38 Jesus, once more deeply moved, came to the tomb. It was a cave with a stone laid across the entrance. 39 “Take away the stone,” he said.

But, Lord,” said Martha, the sister of the dead man, “by this time there is a bad odor, for he has been there four days.”

40 Then Jesus said, “Did I not tell you that if you believe, you will see the glory of God?”

41 So they took away the stone. Then Jesus looked up and said, “Father, I thank you that you have heard me. 42 I knew that you always hear me, but I said this for the benefit of the people standing here, that they may believe that you sent me.”

43 When he had said this, Jesus called in a loud voice, “Lazarus, come out!” 44 The dead man came out, his hands and feet wrapped with strips of linen, and a cloth around his face.

Jesus said to them, “Take off the grave clothes and let him go.”

Jesus told Lazarus to “come forth!” and Lazarus comes walking out of the grave, yet he was STILL “tied up in death clothes”

——>So, Jesus said to THEM “take off the grave clothes and let him go.”

ONE OF THE WAYS GOD SETS PEOPLE FREE, IS TO USE THE BODY of CHRIST TO HELP UNWRAP ANOTHER’S GRAVE CLOTHES. <——That’s how I got unwrapped!

I am eternally grateful to so many women!

GOD, in His great mercy, ALLOWS US TO COME ALONGSIDE SOMEONE ELSE WHO HAS THE SAME PROBLEM WE ONCE HAD, to help them unwrap their grave clothes. ❤️

When the bail is posted (truth) you feel better right away…you have the paper work for freedom…

BUT, it’s when the door is unlocked (the Son has the key) that you are FREE INDEED.

Blessings and FREEDOM to you Sisters!
