So I have been asked what is my method of marking my Bible. So till I was asked this I never really thought about how I mark my Bible but when I think about it I do have a method. First I would like to tell you that I use the NLT for most of my reading. I do read out of other versions but the NLT is what I use alot. So I would like to share with you how I mark in my Bible. Okay so first here is what I use in my Bible:
Okay so on the pins: I use them for writing in my Bible, underlining words or verse, or circling words or other things. The colors don’t have a meaning to me I just pick one of them up. I can tell you that the red one is used more than the other colors. The markers don’t have a meaning either. I have underlined some things with one color but I’ll go into that in a little bit. The pink one is used alot in my Bible. The last three are markers but they bleed through the page. I use them for highlighting a word that is very importing to me. For the tabs, I don’t use them alot. I have three of them on my Bible now. I have used the pink one to mark one of my favorite chapters in Genesis and two blue ones to mark two of my favorite books of the Bible. I don’t know if I will keep them on there or keep adding more of them. I will see what the LORD wants me to do. Other than that the colors don’t have a meaning to me at the moment.
Okay so I told you that I have underlined some Bible verse with one color and here is what I have done. I have gone through my Bible and underlined all Healing verse on pink and then I put a purple line next to it. That way when I underline any other Bible verse in pink I know which one is which!! 🙂
I have also gone through my Bible and underlined in blue all the protection verse and then put a purple line beside it. 🙂
I have also gone through my Bible and underlined all verses on family in green and then put a purple line next to it. 🙂
I have also gone through my Bible and underlined all verse on finances and put a purple line next to it. 🙂
Now I do have verses that mean more than one thing. Like it will stand for healing, protection, finance and family. So on those which ever color I use I take the other colors and put a line next to it like this:
Now I would like to tell you what I use the colors for in my Bible other then that. I use the yellow marker to highlight GOD’S name or anything that refuse to HIM. Like any of HIM names, JESUS, Holy SPIRIT, ext. I use the pink one to highlight words, phrases, verses that stand out to me ext. The other colors I just use as I go. Know I do write in my Bible as I said above.
Now I do write in my Bible has I said above.
So that is what I do. I don’t know if the LORD Is going to have me use any more methods but I will see if HE does. Thanks for reading and if you have any question please feel free to comment or send me an email and ask. I’ll be happy to answer them for you!!! Have a GREAT day and GOD BLESS!!
JESUS IS LORD
