Do you ever bible journal on the go? I love the idea of grabbing a handful of alpha stickers, Print and Pray pages and my journaling bible and heading out into the fresh air or tucking myself into the corner of a coffee shop. And while I couldn’t make that happen today, this (more simple) page I’m sharing here is something you could totally create on the go!
I love how Shanna’s Print & Pray set Wild at Heart coordinates with the Wild[flower] devotional kit. I’m still hanging out in session one of the devotional, answering the second journaling prompt where Bailey asks us what areas we want to grow with God. Still. Because it’s that good!
I think of Christ’s wild example of humility described in Philippians 2:3-8 and realize that’s an area of my life that needs some tending to in order to reflect him.
“Do nothing out of selfish ambition or vain conceit. Rather, in humility value others above yourselves, not looking to your own interests but each of you to the interests of the others. In your relationships with one another, have the same mindset as Christ Jesus:
Who, being in very nature God,
did not consider equality with God something to be used to his own advantage;
rather, he made himself nothing
by taking the very nature of a servant,
being made in human likeness.
And being found in appearance as a man,
he humbled himself
by becoming obedient to death—
even death on a cross!”
Wow! If the blameless Son of God lowered himself to the point of death at the hands of his creation how much more should I, who is very much to blame, deny myself and look to the interests of others?!
I am so grateful for Bailey’s invitation to reflect on our spiritual growth. Knowing that the Master Gardener not only plants these seeds, but is faithful to water them through his Spirit. He is continually pruning us, making us more and more like Christ.
