Love is in the air! Valentine’s Day is right around the corner and as you might guess, the write the word scripture writing verses this month deal with the topic of love.
What greater love can anyone experience than the love of God? So, let’s use this month to think about the love of God and the love that we should show to others.
I have been using scripture writing or as others call it, write the word during my quiet time. That is the time that I set aside daily to have uninterrupted time in the Bible. Time alone with the Lord to be still and know that He is God. Scripture Writing has become an exciting part of this time!
I am still using the Bible Reading plan from the Daily Life Planner series. And, you can too – just jump in with today’s date and get started. A year from now, you will have read through the Bible. There are two versions so you can choose to either read chronologically or straight through from Genesis to Revelation.
The nice thing about writing the word and the Bible reading plan is that even if you miss a day or two (or three) you can just pick up where you left off. If you have the time, by all means, catch up on what you missed. But, if not, just keep going with it!
You can even start in the middle of the month – just pick up with the verses of the day that correspond to the day of the month.
If you haven’t heard of Scripture Writing yet, just like the name says, you write scripture verses each day. It is not complicated at all!
You can download and print the Scripture Writing printable that gives you the verses for each day of February.
There are 2 ways to print the free printable which includes a full size for use with regular 3 ring binders and half page that can be used with smaller sized notebooks – 2 pages are printed per page.
You can click on the images and they will take you to the pdf to print or there is also a download link at the bottom of the post that will take you to the pdf to print your verses and the lined paper.
I know, I’ve already spilled the beans – the write the word scripture writing verses for February have to do with the theme of Love. The Bible tells us that God is love and that we are to love one another. As Christians, living with purpose, there really is no better way to demonstrate love in our lives than to begin with what God teaches about love.
That is what the verses for this month are about – helping us live the lives He has intended us to live, the way we are to live and love. You can use a notebook, a journal, or you can print the lined pages that go along with the Scripture Writing printable. There is also a question at the bottom of them prompting you to write down how the verses to your life.
Lined Pages print a full page to use for writing your verses on.
Lined Pages for writing verses – half page. This prints two to a page so you can cut them in half and use in a smaller 3 ring binder notebook. You can see the small notebook I use here.
You can use a notebook, a journal, or you can print the lined pages that go along with the Scripture Writing printable. There is also a question at the bottom about how to apply the verses to your life.
I personally like a binder that I can fold the list of verses and slip into the clear binder cover like this one – small 3 ring binder. Then, using the half page lined paper that I have printed, cut and put into the binder, I am ready to write!
Write, meditate, pray through the verses. Then be sure to journal your thoughts, what you learn or what impressed you through the passage. You can spend as long or as short an amount of time as you have. The goal is to get in the Word!
As I said earlier, the verses for this month were selected to encourage us to love – love God, love those around us and love ourselves.
How Long Does Write the Word Scripture Writing Take?
Each day takes no longer than 10 minutes – but you can spend as long as you want on them.
As a busy woman/mom, I know it can be so difficult to find the time to get alone with God and His word. Sometimes it seems that just as you sit down to study or read, you are needed, or there is an interruption or a phone call or…fill in the blank for your life.
Scripture writing is designed to get you into the scripture for a few minutes, giving you a chance to let a verse or two (or three) find their way into your heart so the Spirit of God can minister to you as you go throughout your day.
Remember, as Christians, we each have a special purpose. To fulfill that purpose, we need refreshment from God and we can get that by being in His word.
Since our youngest is now 9 yrs old, I have more time than I used to have. But, I remember feeling like I was the queen of rocket praying. You know, the quick prayers you shoot up as you do dishes or are changing diapers.
It is amazing how just a few minutes spent in rocket praying can make such a difference in attitude (mine, that is!). The same is true for anytime spent is scripture!
When Should I Write the Word?
It is completely up to you when you do your scripture writing.
I find that early morning before everyone else is away is the best time for me. The house is quiet and I am not distracted. That also means, that I have to get to bed at a descent hour the night before – I’m working on this one and it is one of my New Year’s Goals!
Benefits of Scripture Writing
1. It gets you in God’s Word.
Do you have a regular quiet time but sometimes feel as though you are just going through the motions to check it off? I know I do!
With scripture writing, the time commitment is very small – that makes it manageable. If we are honest, who doesn’t have 10 minutes that could be used writing scripture?
But, don’t be fooled. Even 10 minutes in the Bible can equip you mightily as you go about your daily routine. And, if you have longer, then by all means keep at it.
It is amazing to me how one verse triggers another and another!
2. Greater engagement.
By actually writing the passage of the day you are using more of your senses which engages your mind (and hopefully your heart) to a greater extent.
The mechanics of writing has helped keep me focused. This means that I don’t finish reading, get up and wonder what I just read.
Do you ever do that?
3. Helps with Memorization
I don’t know about you, but to memorize verses, I write them over and over. That is why I love scripture writing because it helps me memorize verses and I can say them to myself throughout the day.
4. Letter Practicing
If you are into lettering, this is a great way to practice! Even children can use scripture as handwriting practice and older ones can learn something different too with new lettering methods.
