Writing the Word

I was inspired by Sam over at Sam's Noggin to start writing the Word.
Why write the Word? Here is a video to help explain that part.
How do I do it? In the picture, you'll see my ESV Bible and my Frixion pen, along with my Luke Journible. I take some time each day and write it out. I use Frixion pens because they are erasable, like, seriously erasable. This may sound simple but have you seen how many words are in the Word?? It is time consuming, this is not a weekend project. More like a marathon than a sprint, much like our Christian journey.
Why use a Journible? Here is another video for you to watch. Close by, I keep a notebook to use for personal prayer and as a study journal, as well as a separate, small journal for prayer requests. But my Journibles will be a keepsake of the handwritten Word.
You can learn more and purchase Journibles at Heritage Books. This is not an affiliate link. I am sharing because I really love this idea. This is the verse that inspired Journibles, from The Message.

Deuteronomy 17:18

The Message (MSG)
18-20 This is what must be done: When he sits down on the throne of his kingdom, the first thing he must do is make himself a copy of this Revelation on a scroll, copied under the supervision of the Levitical priests. That scroll is to remain at his side at all times; he is to study it every day so that he may learn what it means to fear his God, living in reverent obedience before these rules and regulations by following them. He must not become proud and arrogant, changing the commands at whim to suit himself or making up his own versions. If he reads and learns, he will have a long reign as king in Israel, he and his sons.

Go get inspired by Sam, like I did.
