I think the word "journal" is a bit confusing as used here. There is no space to write or type, very little to read. It is more like an exercise in Scripture memorization, and that's not a bad thing. More it is a companion to your own Bible and your own journal, to use during your prayer and quiet time.
Week One opens with instructions to read a specific passage in Colossians. It would be very nice if there was actually a link to be able to view the verse, or if the verse was printed here. But it's not. So I pulled out my Bible.
Each day of the week, the reader is given a memorization technique for the day, for example, write the verse on four sticky notes and place them around your house. Another day, the reader is told to write the verse in a journal (also another book the reader will need to have handy.)
There are a couple of thought-provoking discussions questions for each week.
I imagine that the DTB version of this book is pamphlet size, exactly eight pages long -- one page for each week.
I do really like the content and the memorization technique, and I do think the discussion questions are insightful. But there was so much more that could have been done to raise this book to the next level. It just falls short.
That being said, however, the Word of God does not go out and return void, so kudos to the author for putting it out there.
The format is so simple that it might cause one to consider it trite or maybe even not worth the time. But if you are looking for a short guide that allows you to explore Scripture, one that does not spoon-feed you answers, then this book/journal is for you.
Benefits of this guide:
First, the format is easy to do. Bixler makes it clear the key to retention of Scripture memorizing is repetition. I agree. Bixler has seven different activities, one per day, to help us improve our chances of doing so. Though Bixler's guide is designed for an 8-week study, I chose to do it in days rather than in weeks. I wanted to delve into Scripture more than I wanted to memorize.
Second, Bixler's study puts one in a contemplative mood. For me the two most beneficial parts to this study are Day No. 5, which asks you to read a chapter in Scripture, and the Discussion Questions. With each Scripture verse and chapter I read and studied, new revelations came. One version of Scripture of Psalm 71, "Put your ear to the ground and listen, give me space for salvation," had me investigating the phrase "put your ear to the ground." I found fascinating stories of people who had done this and what they heard. One story, that took place in Iceland, people there heard a lake draining. I wrote a paragraph about gratitude and how importance listening is. For when we listen as though our ear is to the ground, we're focused, looking for that something in being grateful, that no one else is seeing or acting upon. Bixler knows the power of contemplating Scripture and I am so glad she has us explore it in this way.Read more ›
And you get to learn how! You will consider this the best money you have spent.
I bought a pretty notebook to journal my precious study on: Gratitude Scriptures.
When my eight weeks of this study is done, I will look for another study from Heather Bixler
and continue my journal.
If you have found memorizing difficult, I think this method will be wonderful for you, as it has for me.
at the "moment-by-moment" blessing of God in my life and the lives of my loved ones. Very helpful.
At the end of each week, there are three discussion questions listed that you can either answer individually by writing it out in your journal or answer in a group setting.
This is a very short book, but the power comes in applying each of the seven techniques the author shares for memorizing and applying the scripture to your life over the course of 8 weeks. Recommended!
