Bible Journaling: In Everything, Give Thanks

Giving thanks to the Lord is not only be done in one season, or one time thing only. Giving thanks to GOD is a life style. It is shown in every day life, in what we do, and in what we say. Living with gratitude heart is a beautiful and joyful life.

My devotional reading is from Ephesians 5:20. Apostle Paul reminders us who are believers in Christ to always give thanks and for everything to God the Father in the name of Jesus Christ our Lord and Savior. It means in every thing. Big and small blessings we receive every day. In any circumstances we are in, we need to give thanks to God, who loves us with unconditional love, take cares of us and show us grace and mercy no matter what we had done, have done and will do in the future. For me it is not only a reminder, but also a command to live in thanksgiving every singe day and moment of my life.


This is how I added some journal on my ESV Journaling Bible when there is no more space to write on the side journaling space 🙂 Sometimes, God speak more than one from the save verses.

I cut out a large tag size out of Canson 140 lbs. watercolor paper since I am working with watercolor paint. First, I wet my tag with big brush, cover all the tag. Then I picked up the paint with wet brush and added some of the Fall colors using Koi Watercolor paints on the wet tag. Simply just added one color at a time and blend them together. I think this what they call wet-on-wet technique 🙂

Once tag dry completely, I stamped the words and images from the Joy Clair Stamp – Give Thanks stamp set with Versafine Onyx Black ink pad. I used my Faber-Castel pen to write the extra quote and the Bible verse on the arrow. And I scored the top of the tag to give some crips line so I can fold it up and down, then I added my tag on top of the verse I read with Documented Faith Loopty Loop Washi Tape and Documented Faith Heart Squares Washi Tape. Also, I decorated the bottom of the journaling column with one of the Documented Faith – Doodle Scallop Washi Tape.

Also, I am sharing this Bible Journaling page on Joy Clair blog. Hope you can visit me there, too!
