Sunday Stillness – Psalm 139:1-4

Sunday Stillness – Psalm 139:1-4


I bought a little sketch book recently and as I read the Bible, and my devotionals I have been using my new watercolour pencils to sketch what I feel.

As I read Jesus Calling on August 24th, I felt God’s presence and saw Him hovering over everything – the sea depicted me… full of ups and downs, but full of life.

You have searched me, Lord,
and you know me.
You know when I sit and when I rise;
you perceive my thoughts from afar. You discern my going out and my lying down;
you are familiar with all my ways. Before a word is on my tongue
you, Lord, know it completely (Psalm 139:1-4, NIV).


Today is Sunday Stillness.

Do you have a Scripture that spoke to you this week? Please link below. If you post to Twitter use #sundaystillness and @authorjaniscox.

Feel free to pin the picture. Follow me at AuthorJanisCox on Pinterest.

I would love it if you would subscribe to my blog. See the sidebar to enter your email address.

Read the Sunday Stillness rules if you are new here.

I would appreciate if you would link only about God’s Word. If you have a linky party that’s okay if it is about the same thing. Please no sales or prizes. I want this to be friendly but I must ask you to abide by the rules. Others want to read God’s Word – and that is what I would like the links to be about. I must take down the links that don’t follow the rules. Thanks so much.


Please check out all the places I link to during the week. Thanks to everyone who has joined Sunday Stillness. I do try to get to your posts every week but I admit sometimes I don’t have the time.

  1. Clicking over from the Playdates list, I was immediately captivated by your watercolor lion. That 1 Peter verse is one I need to recall daily. Thank you for sharing your art with your visitors. May the Lord open His Word wide to you, and you to His Word this week.

    1. Christina,
      I loved when I painted the lion and the verse seemed to be made for this painting. I hope to do more art in the years to come. Thanks for your blessing and prayer,

  2. Janis, That’s a profound Scripture, knowing that He knows our thoughts before we do. May our minds be always on what is pure and lovely, and of good repute. I pray He gives us a discerning spirit to recognize anything that would draw our hearts away from Him.
    Thank you for hosting Sunday Stillness!

  3. I love the watercolor, Janis, and the truth that He is hovering over us. He’s been reinforcing that idea in me over the last few days, including today at church. He is everywhere, taking care of us wherever we go. Happy Labor Day, Janis!

  4. Precious sketch! I have been using Jesus Calling this year so it was very sweet to see this sketch today. Thank you for hosting the link up each week.

    1. Joanne,
      Thanks for linking and I find great inspiration through Jesus Calling and the Scripture references given. The sketching is a beginning but I am loving it.

  5. What a wonderful idea, Janis. I ordered my girls some watercolor pencils. I must get over my fear and try to sketch and draw along with them! Love the Jesus Calling devotionals.

    1. Carrie,
      Jesus says to not fear – so dive in and have fun with the watercolour pencils. Look at process not product and the product may just arrive – then it’s even better.

I love to connect with you.
