A Coloring Devotional
OFFERING A CREATIVE OUTLET FOR WOMEN SO THAT THEY EXPERIENCE GOD’S LOVE, ARE UPLIFTED AND SUPPORTED IN THEIR QUIET TIME WITH GOD AS THEY PRAY, READ, JOURNAL AND COLOR.
Worship, Color, Journal
Every morning God paints the sky with brilliant colors and beauty reminding us of His creativity and loving presence! Yet so often we find ourselves disconnected from God, discouraged, or distracted while praying, reading His Word and doing our devotions. We’ve all been there. The good news is that we don’t have to stay there! Coloring and journaling is known to help us relax, focus, and have fun—three qualities that can enrich our time with God and motivate us to run into His presence with thanksgiving. Psalm 16:11 tells us that in God’s presence is fullness of joy! That said, I have no doubt that God intended our quiet time to be the most exciting and fulfilling part of our day. If that is something you long for, then read on and discover the joy of devotional reading and journaling with art and color while you draw close to God.
Devotional reading combined with journaling, art and color engages both the logical analytical left side of the brain as well as the artistic, creative, and imaginative right side. When both sides are engaged our quiet time with the Lord takes on an exciting new dimension as we learn to engage our imagination and artistic core. It’s often in that context that we begin to flourish.
In 2016, Nathalie and Leila prayerfully embarked on a journey to create a unique book that would combine a relaxing and creative activity like coloring with the study of God’s Word. Hence the idea came about of a “Coloring Devotional!” In this book, you’ll find Nathalie’s inspirational paintings and coloring pages, along with Leila’s heart warming devotionals and the study questions beautifully woven together into one message! Each theme was prayerfully chosen to help you experience God in a more personal way. “Lord, Help Me To Flourish” is not only the title of this book, it is also the author’s earnest prayer because flourishing is only possible with help from above!
