In a previous post, I shared with you different scriptures to assist you on your journey of learning how to love yourself. In this post, I wanted to share with you a 30-day scripture writing plan for self love.
My reason for this is that we often read a lot of scripture but we aren’t always intentional about diving into it. Or we may be overwhelmed during our time of Bible study not knowing what to read or do.

I have created this scripture writing plan that will help you read, interpret, and understand what the Word of God teaches about loving yourself. When we write scripture out it forces us to look at each word instead of simply just passing our eyes over what is written. It challenges us to think through what the scripture is saying.
Each day there is a new scripture to read. I have chosen to not restrict this to a specific month because I feel like we can get overwhelmed when we label things for a specific month or day.
How many of us can only start a new diet or a workout plan on a Monday? If it doesn’t start on that Monday then we decide we need to wait another week.
I wanted this plan to be flexible and not be restricted to a specific time frame. Although there are 30 scriptures they do not need to be completed in 30 consecutive days.
I suggest using a journal and your favorite writing utensil, along with your favorite translation of the Bible. Here are some of my favorite journals to use. I also love these InkJoy pens by Papermate because they write so smoothly and don’t smudge.
Each day set aside 10-15 minutes to devote to spending time in the Word. I suggest first reading through the scripture, and then taking the time to write out the scripture in your journal.
As you write it out meditate on what you’re writing. Make notes about what it means to you, how it relates to your life, any revelation you got, and even any questions you may have.
You can go as deep as you feel led to go. After that spend time praying about what you wrote.
I have included the 30 scriptures below as well as a free printable to use for this scripture writing plan.
30 Scriptures to Use

Furthermore, because we are united with Christ, we have received an inheritance from God, for he chose us in advance, and he makes everything work out according to his plan.Ephesians 1:11 (NLT)
So you have not received a spirit that makes you fearful slaves. Instead, you received God’s Spirit when he adopted you as his own children. Now we call him, “Abba, Father.” For his Spirit joins with our spirit to affirm that we are God’s children. And since we are his children, we are his heirs. In fact, together with Christ we are heirs of God’s glory. But if we are to share his glory, we must also share his suffering.Romans 8:15-17 (NLT)
For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, says the Lord, thoughts of peace and not of evil, to give you a future and a hope. Then you will call upon Me and go and pray to Me, and I will listen to you. And you will seek Me and find Me, when you search for Me with all your heart.Jeremiah 29:11-13 (NKJV)
“You are the salt of the earth; but if the salt loses its flavor, how shall it be seasoned? It is then good for nothing but to be thrown out and trampled underfoot by men. “You are the light of the world. A city that is set on a hill cannot be hidden. Nor do they light a lamp and put it under a basket, but on a lampstand, and it gives light to all who are in the house. Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works and glorify your Father in heaven.Matthew 5:13-16 (NKJV)
What is the price of two sparrows—one copper coin? But not a single sparrow can fall to the ground without your Father knowing it. And the very hairs on your head are all numbered. So don’t be afraid; you are more valuable to God than a whole flock of sparrows.Matthew 10:29-31 (NLT)
God has given each of you a gift from his great variety of spiritual gifts. Use them well to serve one another. Do you have the gift of speaking? Then speak as though God himself were speaking through you. Do you have the gift of helping others? Do it with all the strength and energy that God supplies. Then everything you do will bring glory to God through Jesus Christ. All glory and power to him forever and ever! Amen.1 Peter 4:10-11 (NLT)
Now then, we are ambassadors for Christ, as though God were pleading through us: we implore you on Christ’s behalf, be reconciled to God.2 Corinthians 5:20 (NKJV)
