Bible Meditation And Journaling Helps!
- Please contact us if you have any questions, comments, or encouragement.
I am so thankful that I have been praying, meditating, and journaling for a long time, and I look forward to it each day. I have discovered that when I pray, I like to start by asking God, “Lord, what do you want me to do.” It is a beautiful way to start the day with God instead of fitting Him into time later on if you have time left in your busy day. It has become a regular part of my daily life. Do you want to have Bible meditation and journaling time each day?
Practice the habit of meditating and journaling as you read the Bible each day. I believe that there is no one best way to do meditation and Journaling, but the main idea that I have learned is that it needs to include reading God’s word, praying to God, and also being open to hearing what He is saying to us in His word, or by way of prayer. In addition to that, reading a daily devotional can also be very beneficial. Having the same place to do your quiet time is helpful, and it is soft enough to concentrate without being distracted. I highly value my quiet time in the morning, which only takes about 30-45 minutes. (but even if you would start at doing 5 minutes a day), and building it up more would be a great idea.~ Bill Greguska
Psalm 19:14 May these words of my mouth and this meditation of my heart be pleasing in your sight, Lord, my Rock, and my Redeemer.

How To Write A Bible Prayer Journal!
Meditation And Journaling With God’s Word:
- Start by reading a paragraph or two as soon as you forget what you just have read, then STOP! Go back and re-read what you’ve just read.
- Close your eyes and try to playback (paraphrase) what you’ve just read. Meditation isn’t memorization but is somewhat similar. This is just asking your mind to get working. If you can’t do it, go back and re-read the same paragraph(s). Repeat this until you can quickly paraphrase what you’ve just read with your eyes closed.
- Next, think about what you’ve just read. Say a quick prayer, asking the Holy Spirit to reveal the meaning of the text to you.
- Invite the Holy Spirit to convict you of what’s most important about these verses to you right now. Then listen.

To Journal on God’s Word:
- In its purest form, journaling can be re-writing a few of the verses in a notebook. Write it down in your journal if a scripture stood out in the passage.
- The next level of journaling is to write what God is trying to communicate to you.
- Next, write what you say to God as a written prayer. Tell God what YOU think of the verses.
- Next, write what you will do to apply the verses to your life.
- Lastly, think about these verses throughout your day. Re-read your notes during your lunchtime or a break in your day. Continue to listen as God speaks through His word.
Reading the Bible isn’t a race, and there is no finish line. So, take your time and read, meditate, and journal. This is reading for quality. You will be blessed with a much richer experience than just reading to complete as many pages in a hurry. Meditation and journaling are two things we can improve on in our lives.
Meditation And Journaling
You’ll need your Bible and a notebook. Have those handy before you continue. Have you read a few chapters of your Bible, closed it, and then realized, “I don’t remember what I’ve just read”? It happens to everyone when we fall into the trap of reading it like other books. The Bible is not like other books. It isn’t meant to be read once and just put down. The Bible is an instruction manual for living a Godly life intended to be studied and followed. It is to be examined, meditated upon, and, as you are able…memorized. Journaling as you read your Bible is a great way to do this.
Here Are A Few Bible Verses To Consider:
- James 1:22-25, “Do not merely listen to the word, and so deceive yourselves. Do what it says. Anyone who listens to the word but does not do what it says is like a man who looks at his face in a mirror and, after looking at himself, goes away and immediately forgets what he looks like. But the man who looks intently into the perfect law that gives freedom and continues to do this, not forgetting what he has heard, but doing it–will be blessed in what he does.”
- Psalm 119:15-16, “I meditate on your precepts and consider your ways. I delight in your decrees; I will not neglect your word.”
- Psalm 1:1-2, “Blessed is the man who does not walk in the counsel of the wicked or stand in the way of sinners or sit in the seat of mockers. But his delight is in the law of the LORD, and on his law, he meditates day and night.”
