How I Mark My Scriptures to Reference Corresponding Journal Entries
In the front cover of my scriptures I have created a legend. This tells me what the different colors in my scripture markings represent. I try to keep them consistent.
So according to my legend, anything thats marked or noted in purple is referring to my scripture journals. It is usually marked with a #:##- which represents Volume: Page Number. Each of my journals are marked as a Volume. My first Chapter Journal is marked as Volume 1.
My second journal I created that I use to solely study Topics is marked as Volume 2:
And my third journal I have started (my pocket page style journal) after I finished my first journal is marked as Volume 3:
I also make sure to number each of my pages.
I even keep a Table of Contents to help organize it further.
Therefore in my scripture when I come across something I want or have journaled more about, I underline it, or highlight it and mark it journal volume: page number. Here's an example-
In my scriptures I come across the following:
This scripture is talking about FAITH. This is a topic that I have decided to study more about in my Topics journal. So after I have created the page, I marked the word "faithful" as 2:49-50 which means you can read more about my thoughts and research on faith in my second journal volume, pages 49-50.
Now when you look in my second journal on pages 49-50 you see:
Here's another example- in my scriptures I see:
Sariah is a person mentioned in the scriptures. I would like to study more about her that won't fit in the margin of this book. So I dedicate a page in my scripture journal. You can see by the marking that in my Volume 1 journal on page 18 you can see my Character Analysis I did on Sariah as follows:
This volume:page number reference is also used inside some of the templates where it asks you about other journals where you have written about that person/topic/ etc. You can see a section for it in the picture above.
