“D” – A to Z Challenge


There are a couple of activities that I have fallen in love with and try to add to my life. One is praying in color. I know I’ve mentioned this before, but I find great enjoyment and satisfaction when I color as I pray. It helps me to focus on what I’m talking to God about and it boosts my creativity level. You can find more information about this method of prayer by going here.


Another addition to my daily walk with the Lord is Scripture writing. I follow a plan each day and write out a passage of Scripture. I began this endeavor on November 1, 2015 and haven’t missed a day since. Through November, I wrote verses that dealt with thanksgiving and having a grateful heart. In December they were verses that led me to the birth of Jesus. It has been that way since. If you want to check out the plan I follow, click here.


If you’ve noticed, I still haven’t given you anything that begins with the letter “d,” right? Well here it is. Doodling. Doodling is a fun way to express what’s going on in your head. I had been a doodler in college. My college syllabus’ were filled with little people and markings. Through the years I had stopped doodling for some reason. But turns out, I still love to doodle.


Now I’m not as good at it as I used to be…I need some encouragement and prompts from my Pinterest “friends,” but as I add doodling to my Scripture writing endeavor, deep satisfaction has surfaced. So here are a few of my “doodles” in my Scripture writing journal.


















None of these creative methods may be exciting to you. I get it. But I would encourage you to find something that you love that draws you closer to Jesus and do it. You may find this in creating greeting cards, or crocheting baby blankets, or through music. Whatever it is, just do it.


The apostle Paul encouraged the Colossian believers with these words. “And whatever you do, whether in word or deed, do it all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God the Father through him.” (Colossians 3:17 – NIV)


All of this coloring, writing and doodling draws me closer to Jesus because it’s what I choose to do. You can too. Whatever it is, do it in the name of Jesus and you will draw closer to Him. Have a blessed day and keep doodling!


Grace and peace be yours in abundance,
