9 In Bible Study/ Faith

From The Heart Scripture Writing Plan || September

One of my favorite ways to read and study God’s Word has been to hand copy Scripture. I have been copying Scripture for about 3 years now and it, along with Bible Journaling, has completely changed the way I read and study the Bible. The only day I don’t write down Scripture is Sunday. My daughters have even taken to it, which is a beautiful thing.

Writing down Scripture makes the words come to life in a powerful way. As a busy mom, I know I can be distracted by a million things when I read. It takes more concentration to write something down, right? Writing down God’s Word helps you engage another sense, so you are able to remember what you read more easily, and meditate on it throughout the day.

In Deuteronomy 17, verses 18-20, Moses speaks:

“Also it shall be, when he sits on the throne of his kingdom, that he shall write for himself a copy of this law in a book, from the one before the priests, the Levites. And it shall be with him, and he shall read it all the days of his life, that he may learn to fear the Lord his God and be careful to observe all the words of this law and these statutes, that his heart may not be lifted above his brethren, that he may not turn aside from the commandment to the right hand or to the left, and that he may prolong his days in his kingdom, he and his children in the midst of Israel.”

The FROM THE HEART study is released each month, Lord willing, and is a topical study.

During the month of September, we will be reading and writing about God’s GOODNESS. Some of you may think you know how good God is, and you are right. But I think it is important to really mediate on God’s goodness before we can dive into any other topic. The goodness of our God is foundational to any other topic out there. If we can’t grasp the magnitude of His goodness, we will struggle no matter what topic we study. God is good all the time, and all the time, God is good.


Romans 2:4 

“Or do you presume on the riches of his kindness and forbearance and patience, not knowing that God’s kindness is meant to lead you to repentance?”


I hope you join us! If you have the FROM THE HEART PRAYER JOURNAL, that is a perfect place to copy down these Scriptures. If not, just grab a any journal or pretty notebook will do.  Let’s do this together! Comment in the monthly thread on Facebook or on Instagram so we can join together and hear God speak through us.

    Yes Terryn, I must agree with you this is one of the best ways to study Scripture and grow closer to God. I usually dictate a part of Scripture for Mia to write. I love how you put a plan together for the month.
