Before we post the scripture writing plan for March (pssst…this next month’s theme will be Amazing Grace!) let’s do some guided journaling questions on Make Me a Servant as a wrap-up. And when I say “journaling,” don’t freak out, O.K.? These can be short, to-the-point answers – but you can write more if you like. 😉 The whole reason for this exercise is to take the scriptures that we’ve written out this whole month and thread them together into a cohesive unit. We write scriptures to see exactly what God’s Word has to tell us, but unless we think and ponder on what exactly being a servant means, we’re not gaining all we can from this exercise, are we?
You can download this set of journaling questions for free on Google Docs. Print it out and read over the questions. Then look back at your scripture writing pages, whether they’re written in your Ruffled Mango Faith Planner or in a notebook of your choice. Read over ALL of them – I even like to do this aloud, one right after the other! (Another good way to cement scripture into your brain)
To finish up, take a few minutes to answer the questions. You can do this in your head, but I really recommend putting pen to paper. 😉 This is going to be a great resource for you later, especially if you teach Bible classes! BUT EVEN IF YOU DON’T – I can’t overstate the important of knowing and ACTUALLY UNDERSTANDING the Bible. In so doing, you will fall in love with it. (If you haven’t already!) Keep in touch with the scriptures, sister. They are life.
Alyssa will be here soon to post the March scripture writing plan. We will have 2 versions this time – the calendar grid AND our previous list version will be available, too. She’ll also be following up with themed goodies all during March! Don’t miss it! =) ~Kristen
