My Weekly Bible Journaling #39 – Nehemiah

bible

This week we went shopping to fill our boxes for OPERATION CHRISTMAS CHILD. My kids love doing this every year and it is a wonderful project for the whole family. Each of the kids have so much fun picking out toys and gifts to give to a child in need. Please click on the link HERE to learn more about this wonderful ministry.

This is what I have read and journaled in my Beautiful Word Coloring Bible this week:

Whenever you try to accomplish anything significant for the Lord, you will face strong opposition. This is a lesson that the Israelites learned when they were trying to rebuild the wall.

After I looked things over, I stood up and said to the nobles, the officials and the rest of the people, β€œDon’t be afraid of them. Remember the Lord, who is great and awesome, and fight for your families, your sons and your daughters, your wives and your homes.” – Nehemiah 4:14

Had a fun time with the family last night. We watched movies and my husband and I threw candy at our kids… πŸ™‚ It was a fun night relaxing with the ones we love.

I also shook out the folds of my robe and said, β€œIn this way may God shake out of their house and possessions anyone who does not keep this promise. So may such a person be shaken out and emptied!” At this the whole assembly said, β€œAmen,” and praised the Lord. And the people did as they had promised. – Nehemiah 5:13

I have been praying for a situation today. Praying for peace and wisdom…

Nehemiah said, β€œGo and enjoy choice food and sweet drinks, and send some to those who have nothing prepared. This day is holy to our Lord. Do not grieve, for the joy of the Lord is your strength.” – Nehemiah 8:10

I took a break from my Beautiful Word Coloring Bible  one night this week and opened up my Inspired Psalms Coloring Bible. This verse spoke to me and I am so glad I came across it.

Israel, put your hope in the Lord,
for with the Lord is unfailing love
and with him is full redemption.     – Psalm 130:7

    I’d love to do Bible journalling one day. Maybe when the kids are older and I’ve got more time … at the moment it’s a struggle just to fit in reading it πŸ˜‰ #TwinklyTuesday

    I heard a sweet story the other day of someone who’s Operation Christmas Child connected with them on Facebook because they gave their information. It made me feel good to hear! May the Lord bless you as you prepare your own boxes to give. Such a difference it can make.

    I LOVE that you mentioned OCC! Thanks for the reminder for me to remind my readers that collection week starts Monday!!! I am the Area Coordinator for OCC in my area, I LOVE it but it is funny, the next thing you mentioned was that people doing things for the Lord would face opposition and that has been VERY REAL for me since I took this position!! Hope to see you at the linkup this week!!
