Whether you call it a Bible Box, Blessing Box, Promise Jar, or Scripture jar, giving the gift of God’s Word is priceless.
I want to make it easy for you to share His Word and encourage others in their faith walk, or even begin their walk! I have scoured Scripture and created a list of 50 Bible Verses you can personalize for yourself or for someone else.
To download yours, simply subscribe to #transformed via email in the side bar to your right.
Open the document and do a “Find and Replace” for the word INSERTNAME, print them on pretty paper (cardstock is more durable), cut, fold, and place in a pretty box or jar. Pull one out anytime you need a boost. Feel free to play with the font and font sizing to fit your personal touch.
I bet if you said pretty please, I’d happily do a “Find and Replace” for you, for one name of your choice and email you the completed list.
If you would like put your craft skills to work, here are four ways to make your verses extra purty; especially if you plan to give them as a gift.
1. This first one requires a steady hand. Pick up jumbo gems from the DollarTree and a container of Mod Podge. Using a pencil, lightly trace the gems on paper and carefully write the verses or just the reference (you can use different color paper or ink for an extra touch). Then cut out the paper to fit the gem and mod podge it according to the directions on the bottle. I highly recommend writing only a few at a time to reduce boo-boos, smudges, and reduce cutting them too big/small.
2. Using permanent markers, write the personalized verses on river rocks from the DollarTree; the bigger to rock, the longer the verse you can write. Add embellishments with metallic sharpies or stickers. Be sure you gift them in a box rather than a glass container.
3. Pick up a pack of tongue depressors, they are bigger than popsicle sticks and will make your life so much easier…unless you really enjoy a challenge. Mark off about 1-2 inches on one end of the stick with a bit of clear tape and write the verses with a fine tip sharpie or pen; leaving the 1-2 inches empty. You can then paint the remaining portion or decorate with washi tape. Place the sticks in a jar and viola! They can reach over and grab a random stick whenever they want!
4. Purchase or create postcards and hand write the verses on each one. Mail the cards throughout the year. This is especially great if you have a loved one living far away, but I imagine everyone loves receiving a little something in the mail.
5. Choose any one of the above, but don’t personalize the verses. Instead, write the verses as they stand and leave them in a container by your front door. As friends and family leave, invite them to take a blessing with them! Replenish as needed.
If you know someone who would like to make a gift with Bible verses, I would love for you to share this post with them. Thank you in advance!
