For the longest time I couldn't find a highlighting "system" that I liked. I wanted to use color and I wanted verses to be colored because lets be honest I am a little bit of an organization freak. Anyways, after days, weeks, and months of trying to find something that was simple, and easy I came across Jordan Dooley's YouTube channel with a video on how she highlights and studies hers. I was all in. And I love it. Each color points to something different.
Blue: is the reference of a commentary or foot notes. Pink: Is something I need to do, like a commandment, how to spur someone on etc. Yellow: highlights part of that verse that standout to me, or something that WOWs me! I also use sticky notes so that if i don't have enough room on the page I can write it longer. This method works best with a journaling bible, but can be done with a normal Bible. You will just need to use more sticky notes. Here is the link to the video https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=743Uu-HExio
Emma Mae Jenkins is one of my favorite bloggers, YouTubers, and encourages. I watched one of her video called "Practical Ways to Study God's Word." She challenges you to pick ONE verse doesn't have to be long, and study it for a week. For instance "The Lord is my shepard, I lack nothing." Psalms 23:1 Its eight words. Then when you wake up in the morning before you get out of bed "The Lord is my shepard, I lake nothing." When you are getting ready for school "The Lord is my Shepard, I lack nothing." During class, in the hall, at lunch "The Lord is My Shepard, I lack nothing." All through your day you say it. You can write it on note cards and stick them EVERYWHERE! By the end of the week you will learn a new verse. I challenge you to pick a verse. If I you choose a longer verse maybe take two weeks to learn it instead of a week.
What is one way you study the Bible? Share in the comments with me!
