Think On These Things

{Affiliate links used.}

The way we think about God and ourselves has power over our emotions and actions. Meditating on God's Word can change our lives. In 2016, it was my goal to create lists of verses for each day of every month that I could meditate on, write out, and at times write notes about in my Journaling Bible. I will be continuing this practice in 2017! "Think on These Things" will have a slightly different look, but we will still have a theme for the month and verses each day that you can write out, verse map, or ponder.  Below you will find the verses for the year {as they become available}, last year's verses, and a suggested supply list. I hope you will join me! Let's "Think On These Things"!

During the month I try to post my thoughts on the verses on Instagram. If you would like to follow me you can find me here. Also, if you are posting your own thoughts there please use the hashtag #thinkonthesethings. I would love to read how God speaks to you!!

2016 Verses

Here is a quick list of the resources I use. You don't have to have these items as whatever Bible you have on hand will work. Any paper {preferably a notebook or journal} will do. However, I LOVE my journaling Bible as it is all in one place. It allows me to go back to a certain verse or passage and see how I connected with it.

There are many ways you can use these verses. You can read and meditate on them. You can write them out as you meditate on them. You can read them and then write about them in a journal or journaling Bible. You could do verse mapping with them (See this post). Here are some of the items I use...

A single column journaling Bible...

ESV Single Column Journaling Bible (TruTone, Chestnut, Leaves Design)
ESV Single Column Journaling Bible (Black)
ESV Single Column Journaling Bible (Brown, Flap with Strap)

Some highlighters {These are my absolute favorites!}...

Eco Highlighter Pencils - Set of 5 Colors

Black pens...

Black Ink Pen Set

I love these journals that lay flat...easier to write in! They are great for Scripture writing!
Studio Oh! Deconstructed Journals

I am going to do this with you on a monthly basis instead of daily. I am just starting with Bible journaling and I really like the idea of Thinking on these things and I really like the idea of a monthly theme. I can't get behind this way. Thank you for posting this.

How did you choose these verses?

Debbie P said...

I am glad you are joining me! I choose the verses in various ways. Some of them are my favorites. I also do some "research" with a concordance and other Bible helps to find verses that fit the theme. Praying for you that as you "think on these things" that God will bless you!
