Scripture Writing

I stumbled upon a scripture writing community and joined on a whim. I am so glad I did. I am not staying on schedule perfectly but who cares? I am learning soooooo much! I have never done a sustained study like this, every day. It has been challenging, eye-opening, and life changing. And I love it.

The one I am part of is writing the book of Acts right now. We just hit chapter 9 and Saul’s conversion. We write about 4 verses each day. I have a composition book that never got used in our homeschool that I do all my daily writing and study notes in. I have a plain black ink pen that I like how it writes to write the verses of scripture. And then I have a set of 5 gel colored pens that I use to make study notes and comments with. I strive to use each color every day, thus finding 5 different aspects of the passage to focus on.

The ladies in the group are just amazing. They are true mentors in the word, and ooze love for others in every comment and answer. I have asked some questions, truly wanting to know but sort of thinking someone would answer that I should know it already, but they don’t. They always respond and they always respond with great information and helpful, loving comments. I learn so much through these mentors. I wish I knew them all in person and could hug their necks to say thank you. And we are only in March! What all are they going to bless me with by December?

Today’s lesson – I’m a couple of days behind but catching up! Spring break threw me off.

This has challenged me to keep up or make up what I miss. It has challenged me to dig deeper into word meanings. It has challenged me to connect scriptures together across the whole of the Bible. It has challenged me to think and focus and study within God’s bounds on it all. It is a great challenge.

This is a year long project and I am blessed by it. I highly encourage everyone to write the scriptures. Bit by bit, you learn more and more. And are blessed by a deeper understanding of God, His word, and how to live your life.

Lori, At Home.

    This sounds lovely, Lori! I have a journal that I wrote the Fruits of the Spirit and then broke it down, searching the Bible for more scripture to tie into it. I love having the journal to look back on and read. I love the pens, I have an extensive pen collection 🙂

      I love colored pens, too. And I don’t even need the expensive ones. My favorites have been dollar store ones.

    This looks so wonderful! I love writing scripture, but I’ve never seen it combined with a study like what you describe. Where did you find this scripture writing community? I’d love to know more about it!

      It is a group on Facebook called Scripture Writing 2021. We are working through the book of Acts. Everyone is welcome. A majority of the women are members of the church of Christ but everyone who is interested in learning and working is invited.
