One of my favorite bible verses is Psalm 138:8 that is says:

How to make beautiful tabs for your bible

How to make beautiful tabs for your bible using washi tape

When I got my new devotional bible one of the first things I wanted to do was to put some tabs on. I wanted to do a little DIY project with it. So, I decided make my own beautiful bible tabs, super easy and affordable using washi tape. Yes! Washi tape!

Here is a simple step by step post of about how to use your favorite washi tape to create your tabs.

1. First, choose your washi tape. If you don’t have washi tape you can buy some online at Etsy, EBay, Amazon or at any hobby or craft retailer near you. You can find affordable prices on washi tape, depending on the size and how many rolls contains the package. Prices vary from $19.99 to $1.00. Yes! Let me give you a tip on this. On my last trip to Florida I got plenty of washi tape for only $1 at Dollar Tree stores. Cheap and beautiful! 😀

2. We want to put a tab on the first page of each book of the bible. That means, there is work to do, since we have 66 books. But I promise this will only take you one to two hours of your time. You can use some sticky notes to mark your pages prior the tabs for easy finding.

3. Now let’s start! Cut a little piece of washi tape with your hand or use scissors; since washi tape it’s so easy to manage. Then start putting the washi tape on the first page of the book of Genesis. (See the photo for reference). Then, you will continue do the same step on every first page of every book. You can try different positions for the washi tape (See photo).

And that’s It! It’s easy!

Tips:

1. Use different colors and patterns if you like. Or use one color as I did. I loved so much the gold washi tape that decided to use it on all the pages.

2. Take your time to make a good search for the perfect washi tape for you. There is plenty of options on Etsy. Or visit the Dollar Tree Stores 😉😉😉.

3. Want more ideas of using washi tape in your bible? Check out this other post.

Have fun and enjoy the moment.

Bible Journaling – God’s purposes prevails

Bible Journaling Gods Purposes Prevails

There is something good about knowing that God’s purposes always prevail.  The bible teaches us about the plans and purpose of God with us.  We can feel and live secure about God’s promises to be fulfilled in us, if we do trust Him of course!

Today, I want to share a reflection about the purposes of God and how they prevail in our lives.  As part of our bible journaling challenge this week we are in Ephesians 1:5 that says:

He predestined and lovingly planned for us to be adopted to Himself as [His own] children through Jesus Christ, in accordance with the kind intention and good pleasure of His will—

It’s wonderful to know that God wanted us to be adopted by Him as his children.  So, He had a plan for salvation through Jesus Christ.  This verse teaches us that God loves plans.  He always have plans and they are good for us.

For I know the plans and thoughts that I have for you,’ says the Lord, ‘plans for peace and well-being and not for disaster to give you a future and a hope.  Jeremiah 29:11

Sometimes we cannot understand God’s plans with us. But we can trust that He has plans for our well-being. Has it happened to you, that you do not understand God’s plans and you begin to distrust what He may be doing in your favor?  It has happened to me. Then we began to despair and even make decisions outside the will of God, simply by not waiting on Him.

So it is important to remember that He already has our plans for our well-being. We may have our own plans, but God’s plans prevail over ours.  This is a relief for me, and gives me so much peace that I can trust in God’s plans for me.  Don’t you think?

Here’s a bible journaling I did while studying and meditating in Ephesians 1:5.Bible Journaling Gods Purposes Prevails2

What did I used in this entry for the challenge?

I used, watercolor paint in yellow, flower washi tape (lots), Illustrated Faith die cuts and colored pencils.  My favorite? It’s the piece that says “I know that plans I have for you”.

For our next entry, we are going to be studying about the bible verse John 15:9.  This will be our last day of the challenge.  Do you want to join me? You still have time!
