If you’re looking for Bible journaling ideas, I have fifty amazing bible journal pages to share.
Bible journaling is the art of keeping visually creative notes in your Bible. Bible journaling allows you to read and study the word of God in a fun and unique way.
Some people ask how can you read the words when you have paint or pencils covering the text. Well, some ensure that the colors are transparent enough to still read the text, while others have two Bibles. One for journaling and one for reading.
If you’re ready to be inspired, check out these creative Bible journaling ideas.
1. Leave Everything in God’s Hands
This message reminds us to leave the future in God’s hands because he knows what’s best for us. “Those who leave everything in God’s hand will eventually see God’s hands in everything.”

“And Boaz said to her, When the hour of eating is, come thou hither, and eat bread, and wet thy morsel in vinegar. Therefore she sat at the side of [the] reapers; and he directed to her pottage, and she ate, and was filled; and she took the remnants.”
5. In His Image
“So God created mankind in his own image, in the image of God he created them; male and female he created them.”
6. Bless The Lord Oh My Soul
“Bless the Lord, oh my soul.” The calligraphy text adds a special touch to the margins of this journal page. I also love the image of the woman and the watercolor placed throughout the page.
7. Proverbs 12:25
Proverbs 12:25 says, “Anxiety in a man’s heart weighs him down,
but a good word makes him glad.”
8. Take Me Deeper

10. Love Flashes Like Fire
“Set me as a seal upon your heart, as a seal upon your arm, for love is strong as death, jealousy is fierce as the grave. Its flashes are flashes of fire, the very flame of the LORD.”

I have other sheep that are not of this sheep pen. I must bring them also. They too will listen to my voice, and there shall be one flock and one shepherd.”
23. He Will Rejoice

The Book of Psalms in the Old Testament is composed of sacred songs or sacred poems that are meant to be sung. Psalm 4:4 says, “Don’t sin by letting anger control you. Think about it overnight and remain silent.”
This is such an important thing to practice. Anytime you’re angry, take some time to think about things before speaking or making a decision.
43. My Soul Thirsts for You
I really love what the artist captioned with this picture. She says, “Just like I have been creatively dry for a season, we can get spiritually dry as well. To get over the creative slump, I just decided to do Something creative. The same goes for spiritual dryness…. just get into the Word!”

This spread is so bold and vibrant. When deciding to do journaling art that covers the Word, make sure you have a second Bible that’s only used for reading.

How amazing is God that He would have mercy on a sinner such as myself? As Christians, we are all sinners, and we all have forgiveness through Christ’s blood.
46. Joshua 24:15

49. Jonah is Not About the Fish
This journaling page represents the story of Jonah not being about the fish. Johan is about God’s compassion for everyone, even those who don’t deserve it.
50. Created with a Purpose
