If you are following along with Documented Faith then you know that there is one focus word per month along with verses for each week that coordinate with the verse. You can get the weekly verses right here and they are posted once a week, usually late Friday or Saturday morning.
Each month of the year we also focus on a specific word. The first word for 2017 is MOVE.
Along with the Facebook group postings, emails, and Documented Faith page posts, I am also going to post right here where you are reading, about how I document and/or illustrated the weeks verse as inspiration and encouragement for you.
Here is the best thing about the whole dang enchilada, YOU can do it however you want, which goes for me as well. This means that some weeks I may be in the margin of my Journaling Bible, some weeks on a sheet of paper that I add into my existing planner system, some weeks on post it notes ( I LOVE post-it notes) and/or some weeks on 3 x 5 cards*. There is no wrong or right way to document or illustrate your faith. The important thing is that you do it and that you work on creating a habit of doing it.
Here is the verse for week two of 2017:
“Finally, be strong in the Lord and in his mighty power. Put on the full armor of God, so that you can take your stand against the devil’s schemes.” Ephesians 6:10-11
It is our responsibility to be prepared to act/move (MOVE is our word for January) In our walk, we will battle against spiritual darkness and we must depend on God’s strength and use every piece of His armor to move through what we are going through. In addition to those notes, I wrote out the following in the margin of my Journaling Bible: and in addition to the margin, I wrote out this reminder: There are always going to be battles. You either just got out of one or there is one right around the bend so it is absolutely necessary to be ready.
Like I always say, I am not the boss of you BUT if I was, I would remind you to put on your armor everyday day and get yourself ready and prepared to MOVE because we all know what will happen the moment we put it off or don't do it.
OH and by the way..did you see that little asterisk up there by the words: 3 x 5 cards? Well, I have a new little set of twelve 3 x 5 cards.
Each card has the word for each month in 2017 and on the back a verse and prayer to go along with the word. These little beauties are prints of my own mixed media work and can be added into your binder, planners, journals, framed or wherever you feel you need to put it AND when you by one set for $10.00, you get an additional set to give to a friend. You can find them right here.
