Bible Doodle: Psalm 1:2-3

But they delight in the law of the Lord,
    meditating on it day and night.
They are like trees planted along the riverbank,
    bearing fruit each season. Psalm 1:2-3 (NIV)

To grow His words, I need to spend time working and meditating in His garden.

words→pictures→doodle→for some of us: art

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. Or find a picture that represents the verse to you—a visual reminder of God’s words to your heart.

I am not an accomplished artist, but I am a life-long doodler. Here’s the method I use. I invite you to adapt it to fit your own style and skillset.

  • 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.
