Ephesians 3:17 - Jesus Journaling

Hi! I'm Gail. My quiet time has been enhanced by creative journaling.

Below I share my journal thoughts about Ephesians 3:16-18, specifically verse 17:
"I pray that out of his glorious riches he may strengthen you with power through his Spirit in your inner being, 17 so that Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith. And I pray that you, being rooted and established in love, 18 may have power, together with all the Lord’s holy people, to grasp how wide and long and high and deep is the love of Christ..

I wrote a devotion on this passage called Rooted and Established in Love. Please check out my homepage and sign up for a free subscription to my 1-minute devotions while you are here. My 1-minute devotions are a fast read and they might give you inspiration for some creative journaling!

Back to the passage:
Roots provide nutrients and stability to a plant, and that's what we need if we are going to grow properly in Christ.

There are several passages about "roots" that can add meaning to this passage:

Jeremiah 7:17-18“But blessed is the one who trusts in the Lord, whose confidence is in him. 8 They will be like a tree planted by the water that sends out its roots by the stream. It does not fear when heat comes; its leaves are always green. It has no worries in a year of drought and never fails to bear fruit.”

Colossians 2:6-7: So then, just as you received Christ Jesus as Lord, continue to live your lives in him, 7 rooted and built up in him, strengthened in the faith as you were taught, and overflowing with thankfulness.  

Creative Tips: It's obvious, but I thought I'd mention that I did this in a regular Bible, not a jounraling Bible. This was actually an old Bible with the cover falling apart and I fixed the cover (explanation HERE). You can do creative journaling with minimal expense.
