I get it! Maybe you’re not interested in illustrating scriptures, word and character studies, and your conversations with the Lord. And that is a-okay!
His Palette’s tagline is “creatively worshiping Him and learning His Word.” This means we are not pigeon-holed into sharing Bible journaling exclusively. Here you will find an array of creative things to do with your faith and for our God. Bible journaling? Studies? Art? Note-taking? And MORE!
As a creative Christian, or as I like to refer to myself, a Jesus freak with a journaling Bible, I regularly try to find new ways to glorify God, to share His Word, to study the Bible, and to nurture my relationship with Him.
Today I’d like to discuss something I refer to as creative note-taking, also described as colorful Bible notes. Creative note-taking can be done in or out of your Bible. It consists of word studies, chapter studies, character studies, or any other way you may study the Bible.
There are a myriad of pre-assigned color code systems that you can use in your creative note-taking. Purple for the words of God. Yellow for promises. So on and so on.
But know this, these color-coded tools are not universal. Though one chart may use yellow for God’s promises, another chart may use pink for promises. Plus, not all color code charts use the same categories (ex. God’s promises, laws, etc.).
Clearly we are all unique individuals. With this individuality comes unique ways each of us study and create AND LEARN.
NOTE: I get a lot out of a specific study tool called the inductive bible study by Kay Arthur. It mixes notes with colored symbols and shows you how to highlight/underline specific words to better learn what the Bible says. Though I learn so much using this process, it is more complex than a short and simple study allows.
*We will be posting future articles, sharing inductive Bible study with our community.
So it occurred to me that our differences and the desire for a simple but effective way to study the Bible could be done, in a fully customizable way, if we DIY’d it!
The DIY Color Code System
When I think of God, Jesus Christ, and the Holy Spirit, I envision purple and gold (like the inductive Bible study colors). However, maybe when you think of Christ you envision red because of his sacrificial blood.
Since we are all so incredibly different, the way we learn and the way we make connections is also different. Because of this, the Lord placed on my heart to create a blank DIY color code system that each person could customize to fit their own way of making connections in their own unique learning process.
