January Scripture Writing Plan: Renew. Refresh. Revive!
2019 is just around the corner. Some people are making resolutions, others set goals, and many choose a “word for the year.”
Whatever you choose, make time each day to engage with God’s Word. If you aren’t sure where to begin, I’ve provided some links below with ideas on how to begin, whether you’re wanting to do memorization, study, or just simple daily reading.

Another way to dig into the word is through copying the scripture on paper. This is my third month of setting up scripture writing plans and while I’ve had a few typos here and there, it’s been a delightful practice.
This month’s scripture writing plan centers around the idea of newness:
- Renewing mind, heart, and spirit
- Living as a new creation in Christ Jesus
- Revival through God’s Word
For those new to scripture writing, the process is simple. Copy the scripture of the day into a journal or on paper. Write a sentence or more of reflection or simply underline words or phrases that stood out as you copied the passage.
I have found that certain concepts leap of the page as I copy each word because I am forced to slow down and consider it as I write.
