Deeper Still lesson 5

We’re diving into a little book in the Bible called Micah. He was a prophet. As we adventure into the depths of God, we’re looking at a variety of mysterious and wonderful things. Developing this lesson took me by surprise but I really feel God has a message for you in it and I’m excited to share it with you!

Enjoy the video and then remember to scroll lower into this post for more, including fancy new links to all the supplies I share in the video!

Scripture

I used my Double Column ESV Journaling Bible, for this lesson and the scripture for this challenge is Micah 7:7…

But as for me, I will watch expectantly for the Lord;
I will wait for the God of my salvation.
My God will hear me.

God our salvation

What a loving God! I often share more in my blog post than you’d find in my videos. But, on this occasion, I think it is critical that you hear everything in one place. So, please enjoy the video as we learn about God our wonderful salvation!


After watching the lesson video, if you have made a decision to grow closer to God, or accept friendship with Him, please pop into the comments and let me know! I want to celebrate with you!

Mixed Media Bible Journaling

Mixed media is essentially… well…. a mixture of different art “mediums” being used for one art piece. For example, blending ink and then stamping, before finishing with pen. I didn’t stick with only watercolor, I mixed it up a bit. What I think I love most about mixed media Bible journaling, is how it gives us freedom to play in God’s presence. Mixed media Bible journaling seems to me, to be the very essence of pushing aside perfectionism, while creating with God. It is a perfect way to invite God into a playful space we’ve created for encountering Him without our own ideas of how things should look.


I want to give you permission to mix things up a bit. To do some mixed media Bible journaling for the sake of playing in God’s presence. Healthy parents love to watch as their children play in delight. Just watching them enjoy being in their presence is a treasure to the heart. And so it is with our Heavenly Father. He adores us and wants us to let loose and experience a bit of playful bliss at His feet.


I dare you this week to have so much fun in your Bible that you mess things up a bit. I did in this very project and something bled around the edges of my lettering a bit. You know what? I don’t care! Why? Because the objective was to have fun in God’s presence and I had a ton of it! I invite you to a new level of fun in God’s presence.
