Hallelujah: God's Plans Always Happen
"Many are the plans in the mind of a man, but it is the purpose of the LORD that will stand." Proverbs 19:21

I recently finished an in-depth study of the book of Romans with an international Bible Study called Bible Study Fellowship. BSF has been a game-changer for me since I started 6 years ago. In-depth Bible study paired with Bible journaling has really helped me grow in my love for God's Word and my understanding of who God is and what His plans are for my life.

Each week of the study of Romans, the children in the program learn a "main truth" from the passage we are studying. I am a children's leader and end up memorizing these amazing truths as I teach them to the little ones. As I reflected on the study, the truth that kept coming to mind was "What God plans always happens."

This truth was powerful to me because it gave me a lot of peace surrounding my pregnancy. I have a history of miscarriages and along with that comes a lot of anxiety and fear while I am pregnant. In the past, I have let fear take hold and have let lies fill my thoughts. Since the beginning of this pregnancy, I have prayed for God to fill me with joy, peace, and truth. The truth is, God's plans always happen! His purpose stands! Scripture also tells me that His plans are good and perfect. Focusing on these simple truths has really helped me have joy and peace during this pregnancy and also comfort for the pregnancies that didn't go the way I planned. There is purpose in it all! For the purpose of the LORD will stand! Hallelujah!

Since this truth is such a powerful one, I knew I wanted to document it in my journaling Bible. I decided to pair this joyful girl from the Hallelujah stamp set with a speech bubble. I then added my own hand lettering to boldly write out the main truth. Even though it was part of the Romans study, I put it next to Proverbs 19:21 because I just thought it was the perfect verse to go with this truth. I love these joyful girls from this stamp set! It was the perfect detail for this page and a wonderful way for me to document what God has taught me.

Thanks for reading, and I pray you find comfort, peace, and joy in this truth too! Many blessings friends!

Joyful in His plan,
