Winsome Wednesday - How colourful is your Bible?

On Sunday morning, I was sitting in church waiting for the service to start and as I often do, I started flipping through my bible.  No idea why, maybe I am waiting on divine inspiration or something.  Maybe its a nervous action to fill time space between seeing someone you know to say hi to, and waiting for the worship team to start.  Who knows why we do some things right?!

Anyway, I digress....  (love saying that)!  As I flipped through my bible I noticed how colourful the pages were round about Psalms and Proverbs.  And small splashes of colour in and around the New Testament.  But I noticed how really blank (devoid of colour) it was almost everywhere else!  Hmmm!  I have had this bible for a few years so, well, it should be more colourful.  More highlighting and underlining should be present!  Made me think!  This book needs more reading and studying done in it!


So I challenge you to get your bible more colourful.  It tells a story of how much time you've spent in it and how much understanding you are receiving from it! And if your bible is very colourful, consider getting a new one and start all over.  How many times have we read the same scripture and then one day, suddenly, that scripture comes to life in a whole new way?

Hebrews 4 v 12:  For the Word that God speaks is alive and full of power [making it active, operative, energizing, and effective];  it is sharper than any two-edged sword, penetrating to the dividing line of the breath of life (soul) and [the immortal] spirit, and of joints and marrow [of the deepest parts of our nature], exposing and sifting and analyzing and judging the very thoughts and purposes of the heart.

Looking forward to seeing you link up below!

God bless

  3. Great thoughts, Tracy! One of my old Bibles was most colorful in Isaiah and Psalms. Since I've been doing the "One Year Bible", it's more throughout.

  4. The Bible is indeed a treasure. Revelations pop up every time we read in it.

    Thank you for hosting this blog hop! Have a nice day!
