Many of us take notes in our Bibles as part of our personal time, during a seminar or listening to a pastor or teacher. For me, there is a wealth of information contained in my notes which when re-read at various points of my life still offer inspiration and insight. You see, besides the 66 books in the Bible, I have verses that are precious to me underlined, I've color-coded passages that moved me at various points of my life, and I've taken notes from thousands of pastors and seminars. And so my Bible has become a wellspring of information (as it should be) not only for the inspired words but also as a source of reflection, as a source of answered prayer, and as a source of constant realization that I always need God. I never get too old to learn his lesson. Here are excerpts from some of the various notes in my Bible and what they've meant to me:
These are only some of the snippets found on any white space in my Bible. I've run out of pages and now use a separate binder to take notes as the Holy Spirit moves me.
Thy word have I hid in mine heart, that I might not sin against thee. Psalms 119:11 [KJV]
