Bible Journaling Series-#124
A friend asked the other day
how I got started in Bible Journaling
and gathering the folks together.
Hmmm--it had to be Holy spirit led.
That is it.
I wasn't even smart enough to see
the ministry opportunity right in front of me.
Soon- I was simply praying-
Help Me- Holy Spirit- Help Me.
Moving in unknown territory,
and not sure of the outcome.
I can't say that I have moved
much farther down the line in this-
in the past YEAR.
Sometimes it is simply doing
the very next best choice.
And praying for the Holy Spirit
to send "People of Peace"-
those He is moving also.
And GO THERE.
So if you are thinking about creating a community
centered around Bible Journaling:
1. Pray and Look for another person
that has a similar heart passion
for meeting God in the margins (or notebook).
2. Pray for open doors of HOW to be together.
3. Pray for a teachable heart-
if you see that the WHERE
to be together is in your own home.
4. Pray that a heart of hospitality
may be the first movement
He blesses you
with in order to create community.
It is always good to share your intentions
with the leadership in your church or fellowship.
But, sometimes "the church" is slow to respond to
new ideas and may see this as a FAD.
And sometimes He meets us in the Fire.
Be fearless in your response
to Holy Spirit nudges.
It is time in His Word-
invite others along for the journey.
Then be ready to TELL the STORY-
of meeting God in the margins of your Bible.
