Day Eleven

 

Each of us has our own pace. Just go hiking with young boys and this will become apparent very quickly! 

Reading our devotionals at a relaxed, individual pace is important, too, so that we don’t feel rushed.

Chasing Quiet Day 10: Be Still

 

Bible Quilt your selected verse: 

As we decorate our #biblequiltjournal page day by day, it’s a tangible reflection of His Word building in us.

Sometimes I’ll go back and add a touch of color to a previous day, scanning the scripture again and making connections I haven’t made before.

Chasing Quiet Day 9: Seek It

Bible Quilt your selected verse:  Let the process of writing slow you down a little bit today. As we read and write scripture, it sinks in a bit deeper and we become more familiar with the cadence of God’s Word.

You may even be surprised to discover that you’re memorizing scripture through Bible Quilting!

Even though we think we’re embellishing through stickers or washi tape, the Word is actually being written upon our hearts as we linger and decorate our #biblequiltjournal pages.
