meditating on scripture -journal ideas

Today I wanted to share a subject that is precious to my heart- spending time meditating on scripture. Over the years of being a Christian I have studied scripture in different ways. In college theology was my major and became the deepest study of my life. After college I felt incredibly blessed to have had the foundation of theology so that the relationship that I cultivated with the Lord grew more and more and was beyond just being based on emotion. I loved having the opportunity to study and understand the Bible and memorize scripture. The truth is I still  love getting into God's word everyday - throughout the day and need the Lord more than ever each day. 

I used to struggle to focus on memorizing a scripture verse or on truly meditating on scripture but that has changed though in recent years! I started thinking about how I am "wired" and how I could meditate on scripture so that it truly went deep into my heart. I bought a new Bible (I will share more about this in the future) and since I am a "journal writer/drawer/alterer" I knew that for me I needed to do something artistic with scripture.  I have found by writing, journaling, drawing, paining, and scrapbooking I was able to truly mediate on scripture. Here are a few examples:
Sometimes I cut up strips of paper and then write down all of my fears, worries, or concerns. I then paint over them and then write scripture truths on top of that.
{the picture below was an attempt at making a flower out of all of that *smiles*}
Sometimes I like to decorate certain words that are really speaking to me.
I love cute stickers so sometimes I like to use them to write out the words of the scripture. 
A couple of years ago (on my last senior trip as a chaperone) I came across this verse from Ezekiel. It was perfect for the time as I was struck by the hope, promise, and security that the verse promised. I spent time journaling it but I also "paper sewed" it into my journal. To this day it is still one of my favorite verses on this journey!
Last year I wanted to write down scriptures that I am praying for me and a dear friend of mine. I found the perfect picture frame to do this with and I love how it turned out!

These are just a few of the small ways that I meditate on scripture. Some other ways I will show you in the upcoming weeks but in the meantime I would love to know how do y'all meditate on scripture?
