When I first saw the My Promise Bible I absolutely fell in love with it. Sounds a bit dramatic, but really it’s such a lovely looking bible and I love the idea of being able to journal in my bible. I was only able to get the King James version at the time but that’s okay with me as the KJV is the bible I was raised with, so the thee’s and thou’s don’t bother me when I’m reading it. I actually find comfort in reading the KJV, although I do have a number of other bibles to help with translations.
As a Christian, I have found that the My Promise Bible is a powerful tool for connecting with God’s promises in a more personal and meaningful way. Its focus on God’s promises has helped me to trust in His faithfulness and to deepen my relationship with Him.
I love the simple and elegant design of the My Promise Bible, with its white hardcover that is embossed with “My Promise” Bible in gold lettering inside an embossed pink floral wreath design.
The floral theme is continued on the back of the bible, and the edges of the pages are pink also with a floral design. It looks so pretty and it feels like a treasured possession.
My Promise Bible is filled with over 500 illustrations, offering ample opportunity to pause, reflect, meditate, and journal on God’s Word and His promises to us. These illustrations highlight 52 different promise themes, which cover a broad range of topics, from salvation and forgiveness to healing, provision, and protection. When I’m feeling anxious or uncertain, I turn to these promises and find comfort and strength in the assurance that God is always faithful to His word.
In addition to the inspiring illustrations, I also appreciate the helpful tools and resources included in the My Promise Bible. The concordance, dictionary, and topical index make it easy to quickly locate specific promises related to any issue or concern, and to gain a deeper understanding of God’s Word.
While the concordance may not be as extensive as some of my other Bibles, I find that it still provides me with the necessary guidance to find the right verses to uplift me on any given day. Overall, My Promise Bible is a valuable resource that helps me to strengthen my faith and find hope in the promises of God.
Another thing I love about My Promise Bible is the way it encourages personal reflection and journaling. The space provided for writing down my thoughts, prayers, and insights has been invaluable in helping me to internalize God’s promises and to apply them to my daily life. Through journaling, I have been able to track my spiritual growth and to see how God has been faithful to His promises in my life.
The bible is set in a single column format with wide margins for journaling, and it has over 500 illustrations that can be colored in. These illustrations are great visual tools that help me to reflect and really think about what I have just read.
As you can see below I’m more of a coloring in person as opposed to those talented ladies who turn their bibles into an absolute showcase of artistic delight.
There is a pink pocket on the inside back cover that holds a few pages of stickers that you can use in your journaling. Some of these are colored and some are line art so that you can color them in yourself.
The pocket is a handy place to pop any notes of reflection that you like to refer to.
There are lovely tabs included that you can add to the pages, making it easy to find the particular book you are looking for. Be warned these can be a bit tricky to put on, even though there is a spacer included to make it easy to place them. In the end I asked a friend to give me a hand and she very kindly finished adding the tabs. The tabs add a lovely finishing touch to this bible.
Ribbon Page Markers
The Bible comes with two satin ribbon page markers, one pink and one green. These colors fit in nicely with the overall color scheme of the bible. It’s certainly handy having two ribbons, as it saves me having to use my fingers to hold onto the place I’m reading while trying to check out references in other parts of the Bible.
Overall, the My Promise Bible has been an incredible blessing to me. It has helped me to deepen my faith, to find hope and encouragement in difficult times, and to connect with God’s promises in a more personal and meaningful way, while satisfying my need to journal. If you are looking to deepen your relationship with God and to find hope and strength in His promises, I highly recommend the My Promise Bible.
