I’m so grateful to Christ Jesus for making me adequate to do this work. He went out on a limb, you know, in trusting me with this ministry. The only credentials I brought to it were violence and witch hunts and arrogance. But I was treated mercifully because I didn’t know what I was doing— didn’t know Who I was doing it against! Grace mixed with faith and love poured over me and into me. And all because of Jesus. I Timothy 1:12-14, MSG
Citing my picture sources:
Doing something creative is my favorite! And I love visuals–not only do they help me learn, but they take me places in my mind. I also use them to meditate on scripture or doodle a picture of what I hear from God through scripture.
So, when I need to keep my eyes and hands engaged in order to relax, I color. I use gel pens and colored pencils, sometimes I doodle whatever’s on my mind, and sometimes I find something in a coloring book. My favorite go-to source for this supply is Hobby Lobby as they carry an ever-renewing source of inspirational and scriptural books from a variety of artists and publishers.
