Sitting at my desk with my Bible commentary in front of me- the words stared back at me and seemed linear and flat.
Dare I admit that they weren’t speaking to my soul?
There was no color, no spark and no benefit to my life in the way that God created me to study.
The desire was gone.
How did I come to this place where I wasn’t being spiritually fed?
How can the words NOT penetrate my heart and soul?
And that’s when it hit me.
I was relying more on the words of a commentary and what someone else was saying about the Word of God more than the Word of God itself.

Micro Bible Journaling in the Margins
For the sake of my Christian growth, I needed to climb up into my Heavenly Father’s lap and dig into the Word of God myself.
It let me on a pursuit of really digging into the word of God and putting away the stack of Bible commentaries.
Then something wonderful happened as I studied.
God started speaking to me as I learned, studied and applied His word creatively and micro journaled in the margins.
God was cultivating a closeness with me with the creative gift He had placed inside of me when I was formed in my mother’s womb.
And I can’t keep this way of studying to myself.
Micro BIble journaling is a way to combine your desire for Bible study and prayer and keep a current record IN YOUR Bible of your faith walk.
Cultivating Closeness with a Micro Bible Journaling and Study on Love
As a result of my experience, I decided to really dig into the word and learn about God’s love. What are the characteristics of God’s love? How can we know God loves us? As I dug into my Bible, God began to open my eyes and my heart was opened as God touched my life time and time again. With each new unveiling of His Word, I created in micro in my Bible commemorating my revival with Him.

How to Do Micro Bible Journaling
There are basically 2 ways to micro bible journal.
The first way is that I use my ordinary full size bible and journal in the margins. The margins are small (about 1/4 inch) and is usually text, word studies, chapter themes and notes. It’s a great way to delve into bible journaling on a small scale because it’s not too overwhelming. I use stickers, mini doodling, tip ins and collages.
The second way is more artistic- and I use a micro bible- one that is only 4 by 6 inches (the size of a photograph) and is more artistic expression.
Whichever way you choose, the great thing about micro bible journaling is that it’s SMALL SCALE and PERFECT for beginners.
I am here to assure you that you don’t need a ton of skills to connect your creativity and your faith!
