Conviction

I'll admit it . . . I don't like keeping a Bible journal. I have started many, but they don't usually last more than a few months. Why is this? It shows me how unfaithful I am to studying God's Word. At first my journals entries were long and detailed. Now they are not quite so long. When I glance over my Bible journal and see days that have no entry, I feel ashamed. When I see entries day after day that only consist of the scripture reference, I realize that my Bible studies are not actual studies. They are just reading. Some times hurriedly.

Keeping a Bible journal is a good way to be accountable to yourself. It is a constant reminder of your study life and can show you where you need to improve. It is so tempting to just quit with the journal. Then I wouldn't be bothered so bad. But then I wouldn't see where I need to improve either. So what do I do? I keep writing in my Bible journal and try to do better so that one day I can be proud of what fills the pages.

I didn't even know there was such a thing as a Bible Journal. I'll have to discuse that with you.
