2. Bible verses

The Bible verses section is where I put down the daily Bible I read on a daily basis.

In this section, I write down inspirations I got from using the SOAP METHOD OF BIBLE STUDY so as to make reference to the prayers and also in future

4. Prayers

In this section, I put down things I got from my Bible study that I need to pray into my life, I also put down prayers for loved ones, occasions, etc.

This is a brilliant idea. I never thought to have a note for Bible Study. And I love making jottings while studying.
It would be awesome to have something to go back to for more understanding or reference.

This is a fantastic idea. I started journaling two years and it radically deepened my relationship with Christ. We do so many studies and forgot many important lessons. Having them in a notebook to go back and reflect to allow God to reveal something new is beautiful.
