Singer Jordin Sparks is speaking to her social media followers about believing in the Bible and bringing its beauty in one’s daily life.
Although the R&B crooner’s Christian faith can be attributed to her family’s beliefs, Sparks has now recognized the significance of picking up the Bible and applying these teachings for herself. The 26-year-old singer shared her current favorite translation at present, The Wayfinding Bible, to her fans.
"This Is called The Wayfinding Bible. ITS AMAZING," Sparks captioned the photo on Instagram. "I've had multiple Bibles since I was young but this one is just fantastic!"
This version of the Bible helps its readers in going through the collection of scriptures using creative ways.
The Instagram photo showed Sparks’ Bible on which she has made special highlights and personalized markings. The American Idol winner even drew attention to the relevance of people marking their Bibles and making highlights of their own.
"I remember seeing my parents and grandparents Bibles marked up like this when I was younger. I've only had this Bible for a little less than a year and I look at the pages of mine now and I understand," she wrote. "These are so much more than words. It's amazingly overwhelming and I cannot fully explain it."
Moreover, Sparks dug deep into the meaning of the Bible and the impact that its words has on its readers.
"Everyone takes their own unique journey. It's filled with experiences that are joyous, difficult, easy and painful," she wrote. "But somewhere along the line, after many experiences, they finally 'wake up.' I love the expression: 'when a man's Bible is falling apart, the man isn't.'"
The ‘One Step at a Time’ singer also expressed her thanks to the Lord and encouraged her followers to pick up their Bibles more often.
"Grab that Bible off the table and dive in! Please share," she wrote.
In a past interview, Sparks shared how her faith and her involvement with the church positively affected her life and career.
"My faith has been a humongous part of how I have looked at my career. I started out singing in church very young and it took off from there," Sparks is quoted as saying in a Cross Rhythms report. "The music business is a very secular world and there are always people quick to point to you as a hypocrite when you mess up with something and fall.
She added, “I know that God has blessed me to be where I am and everything he has placed before me is just so amazing."
