8 Tests for Decision Making - Bible journal page

When I looked at FACEBOOK this morning, a "memory" popped up of a post I shared 3 years ago. My friend Tonya had shared it with me. I don't know who wrote this list to give them credit. I decided to add it to my Bible Journal. I handwrote it so it might be a little hard to read, so I will type it out so you can read it.
8 Tests for Decision Making
1. Scripture Test (2 Timothy 3:16) Has God already spoken about it in His Word?
2. Secrecy Test(Proverbs 11:3) Would it bother me if everybody knew this was my choice?
3. Survey Test (1 Timothy 4:12) What if everyone followed my example?
4. Spiritual Test (Galatians 1:10) Am I being people pressured or Spirit-led?
5. Stumbling Test (Romans 14:21) Could this cause another person to stumble?
6. Serenity Test (Philippians 4: 6-7) Have I prayed and received peace about this decision?
7. Sanctification Test (2 Corinthians 3:18) Will this keep me from growing in the character of Christ?
8. Supreme Test (1 Corinthians 10:31) Does this glorify God?

I stamped the numbers with black stazon ink. I hand wrote the list. I did printing for the titles and cursive for the questions. I then watercolored it. It was my first time watercoloring in my Bible. It does sink through and gave a "rainbow" on the other side Maybe next time I will gesso the page first to see if that helps keep the color on the one side. My Bible journal is just as much an experiment as it is an opportunity to worship with art.
