With all the tragedy we hear of everyday in this life, let’s focus on some hope for all of us and especially those who are hurting.

We turn on our TVs or browse the internet, and there always seems to be tragedy and hurt at every corner. Daily we must stay in prayer for those who are hurting and know that we have hope in our Lord Jesus Christ. I thought it would be especially important this month to focus on that hope and not let ourselves become so beat down by all the negative.
October Bible Journaling Challenge
Here’s how it works:
Each month I will have a verse or passage of scripture designated for each week of that month for you to use as a guide in Bible journaling that week. You will illustrate the verse in your own journaling Bible or even just a journal. Then be sure to share your entry with all of us so that we can all gain inspiration from each other but also have accountability with staying in the Word.
You can share the entry on instagram (or any other social media site as well) each month using the designated hashtag and tagging me in the post, @the_southern_couture. This month is #OctBJChallenge and then of course each month will be the same with the change of the month at the beginning. When you share on instagram, I will be picking entries to share on my own account as well so that others can see them too. Just make sure your account is public if you do not tag me so I can see it.
Above is this month’s weekly challenge card that you can PRINT HERE. I made the printable in the size of a business card so that it would be small enough to attach inside your Bible or journal.
When I started thinking on this idea and how we could make our study time more of a priority, I felt that a weekly challenge would be best. I do recommend spending time in the Word everyday, but realistically not everyone may be able to illustrate their study time daily. Weekly entries seems much more doable and attainable.
If you are new to Bible journaling and don’t know where to start, check out more Bible journaling tutorials HERE. And if you really want to take your learning to the next level then be sure to check out my eBook, Adventures in Bible Journaling: An Extensive Beginner’s Guide to Art and Bible Journaling, that is full of information and step-by-step tutorials. You can even get videos to make it even easier.
Don’t forget to print your card HERE and to share with all of us once you are done. I can’t wait to see what you come up with. And the greatest of these is love,
