Not too long ago my journal pages were filled with questions. I was at a point in my life where I seemed to have every dream fulfilled. I had a husband who loved me, one I prayed so long for. I had a precocious little boy, a child I had prayed so long for. I had a great job that worked with me when I expressed my desire to work part-time. I had it made. All my dreams had come true. And yet, there was this lingering sense of unfulfillment. Such guilt sat with me as I looked at all these precious blessings from God, but satisfaction still evaded me.
Last November, everything changed. I began diving deep into God’s word in ways I never had before. While taking my time and studying verses in-depth using the original Hebrew and Greek language – I learned things I never thought of before and I’ve been in church since the womb.
I realized this deep study of God’s word and therefore, God’s heart was what I had been missing. It was the elusive satisfaction I had been craving. It made my soul come alive and my God-given talents thrive.
I’ve personally seen him create in me an unrivaled passion for his word. God is so kind. He is so generous. He could’ve just created us and let us rot away, we certainly deserve it – but mercy of mercies, he desires us. He not only allows us to know him, but has paved the way for us to deepen-deep know him through his word.
One of my favorite things ever is my journaling Bible. I love being able to write notes, dates, and prayers in the margins.
Because of this passion – I’d LOVE to give away an ESV Journaling Bible to one of you! I’m also including a 31 day devotional by The Daily Grace Company.
I can’t wait to see how the Lord will use this Bible for his glory!
