Ingest Scripture Through Doodling

Ph1_25-26
Philippians 1:25-26

Dig into the scriptures via a new method: DOODLING

If you’re looking for a new way to spend time in the scriptures listening for what God has to say to you today, you might try doodling.

Here’s the method I use (adapt it to fit your own style):

  • Read the verses and pray about them.
  • Ask yourself:
    • Is there a word or phrase the jumps out at me?
    • What visual comes to mind? (It may be as simple as colors, an abstract, a word, or a stick figure…)
    • Do the verses remind me of something or someone in my life?
    • If I was going to explain this concept to a 6-year-old, what picture would aid in understanding?
  • Draw a picture or write the words and let the Holy Spirit guide your thoughts.

Ph1_7-9

Why study the Bible this way? If you take it into your mind and heart enough to translate it into a picture or word, it becomes part of you. If you add a sentence or two of explanation, you then engage another part of your brain which cements God’s words even firmer into your heart and mind.

Try it. You’ll like it.
