One thing I got into this year is adult coloring. Being artsy isn’t necessarily my strong suit — words suit me more. It is creativity at its finest — and you don’t have to be great at drawing to love it! I found that coloring is a great stress-relieving method.
Wellness Mama talks about some of the different health benefits that come with adult coloring — I mean, if you even need a reason to exercise your creative juices. =)
And that’s when I discovered BIBLE JOURNALING.#BibleJournaling allows me to be creative while meditating on God's Word. Click To Tweet
I use the Inspire Bible, NLT version. There is space for me to journal in the margins, and then some of the margins have Scripture art.
Maybe some of you are thinking — “Okay, coloring sounds like fun, but I have no time to color with my school/work schedule!” I am totally with you! That’s why I love having my coloring in my BIBLE!No time to color? That's why I love having my coloring in my BIBLE! #BibleJournaling Click To Tweet
Starting back in January or so, I began using a Scripture reading plan through Sweet Blessings blog. I will then follow this simple plan and read the verse for the day, whether morning or evening works better for you.
If I find that one of those verses has a corresponding Scripture art in my Bible, I’ll spend 15-20 minutes that evening doing a bit of coloring and meditating on that verse.
Here are some of my favorite verses I’ve done so far:
