Welcome to the Ultimate Guide to Scripture Writing! It is my heart’s desire to share about Scripture writing and how it has helped me creatively grow my faith.
What is Scripture Writing and What are it’s benefits?
Why would a person want to hand copy Scripture and what are the benefits?
Scripture writing is a powerful way to absorb God’s word by manually writing the word of God that helps us to retain it.
Thy word have I hid in my heart.
Psalm 119:11 says “Thy word have I hid in mine heart, that I might not sin against thee”.
The Hebrew word for hid is צָפַן tsâphan which means to hide or to treasure. The Brown-Driver-Briggs definition is to lie hidden and to hide from discovery.
Are you hiding and treasuring the word of God in your heart so you won’t sin against the Lord? Is the word of God embedded in your heart that it is hidden from discovery?
Scripture writing is one more weapon in the arsenal of hiding God’s word in your heart!
By adding another facet of engagement in absorbing God’s word, it helps us to focus on His God breathed word and apply it to our life.
And that, lovely friend, is what it’s all about- connecting to God through His Word.

The Benefits of Writing Bible Verses by Hand- Writing Scripture Daily
What are the benefits of writing Bible verses by Hand?
Reading alone can sometimes lack dimension. I’ll be the first to admit that I sometimes rush over what I’m reading which results in zero absorption of God’s truth. Stopping to read and write helps your brain to fully engage and increases learning comprehension.
Taking the time to read and write gets you to pause and really think about the word of God and how to apply it to your life.
As David played the harp for King Saul, reading and writing Scripture daily can calm our troubled hearts and mind.
Scripture Writing Tips for Writing Scripture By Hand
My first tip for writing Scripture by Hand would be to not let perfectionism get in the way. Just grab some notebook paper, a steno pad or a pretty journal.
The first step is just getting started.
And, if you make a mistake- so what? Your Scripture writing is your offering to the Lord from a heart who simply wants to get closer to God through His word. Don’t let satan catch you in the trap of perfection.
Accepting that mistakes are inevitable will help alleviate perfection paralysis.

In preparation for baby boy’s arrival, I’ve decided to simplify my Bible study routine. I’ve been using my compact Bible, only a couple of pens, one highlighter & a few sticky notes. I do miss all the colorful Bible study notes in my SRT Bible, but I just don’t have time for that right now, and that’s really ok. God still speaks, even without all.the.things. ? . . . . . #herdailybible #shereadstruth #shereadstruthbible #srtbible #journalingbible #biblejournaling #biblestudy #faithnotes #scripture #dailybiblestudy #bible #womenintheword #lampandlight #devotions #bibletime #prayeveryday #wellwateredwomen #wordbeforeworld #morningdevotions
