This devotional/journal is designed help us slow down, reduce a bit of stress and anxiety, and, in Amazon's words: "understand and relate to God's promises in a way you never have before. These biblical truths will come to life through color and illustration and will inspire your own creativity and your personal walk with God as you fall in love with your bible all over again."
Each day has the devotion, some fun accents, and a space you to journal, draw, paint, stamp, etc. I have decided that I will sketch and journal and even add some highlights from each day on my pages. I may add some receipts, ticket stubbs or pictures along the way, but right now it is just me and my pens and pencils.
I thought I would share a few of the pages I completed this week:
Day 1 was about resting more and especially resting in God. Women are especially guilty of not taking the time to slow down and realize we shouldn't try or be expected to go, go, go and do, do, do all the time. We need to take the time to stop and relax and dwell with God. When people ask me what my spirit animal is, I say a Panda since I am fluffy, chubby and sleepy - lol. I was inspired by a picture taken at a zoo.
Day 2 was about taking care of ourselves and relaxing. We need to take some breaths and realize God is there with us and wants us to take care of ourselves. I drew this picture - it is how in envision my daughter at her new lake house (she moves in sometime in the next few weeks - I am going to miss her and her sweet family immensely).
Day 5 focuses on how we are uniquely created and how we should not be trying to keep up with everyone else. We need to stop running and turn our hearts toward God.
Day 7 (today) is centered around making sure to enjoy things along the way in life. We hurry places and forget to stop, see things along the way, and cherish the beauty of others, flowers, the landscape, the sky, etc.
