Do you know your optimal way of learning and integrating information and thoughts into your mind?
My preferred method is visual and spatial. When the AHA moment of understanding and linkage comes, my usual response is, “Yes, I can see that.”
I am also putting time and effort into the most important relationship I have–with God. I want to replace my egotistical and sin-filled thoughts with His words, making them the default mode I use in my thoughts, attitudes, and resulting actions.
Pooling those together brought this equation: visual learning + God’s word > greater relationship with Him
So I draw the Bible, and it helps me to:
- remember God’s words, (memorized or transliterated)
- remember where to find them: Book of the Bible and chapter
- dig into them deeply enough to be able to take His words in, run them through my heart, soul, and mind, and visualize a concept of what they mean to me today, right now
I invite you to join me–give it a try. Let God’s thoughts flow through the pen in your hand. Don’t worry about the quality of the “art,” but on what He is telling you today.
Join me on the following Wednesdays and Saturdays as we read anddoodle our way through Paul’s letter to the Ephesians.
