Bible painting – Lesson 2 – Can you do this? Yes you can.

Do you want to learn how to do Bible painting? Some people call this Bible Journaling. I hope today to show you it is not as intimidating as it sounds. Stick with me and I will try to show you why.

I love to do Bible painting. (tweet this)

We will continue to review the scriptures we have studied. Last week I found the review helpful. I hope you did too.

Bible painting - memorizing scripture

When I have a word, thought or picture to go with a scripture I am more likely to remember it. (tweet this)

I am trying to type the words in this blog rather than cut and paste. I find cutting and pasting does not help me to learn the scripture.

And of course painting – this helps solidify where in the Bible the scripture comes and as I paint I repeat the words. The pictures are in my mind.

This week we will look at my Bible painting for three scriptures (you can click on the links to find my thoughts and study for each scripture:

Romans 15:13 – How can we find peace this Christmas?

Bible painting Romans 15:13

May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace as you trust in Him, so that you may overflow with hope by the power of the Holy Spirit.

My life application:

I see a revival, a passion for hope, love, joy and peace in this world.

Nothing can stop God from moving in His people – NO THING.


Luke 11:28  Word of God Speak (my first one)

Blessed rather are those who hear the Word of God and obey it.

Bible painting - Hebrews 11:28


My life application:

So OBEY has been the word I heard clearly today.

Hebrews 4:12 – Word of God Speak – Cut to the Quick

For the Word of God is living and active, sharper than any double-edged sword it penetrates even to dividing soul and spirit, joints and marrow; it judges the thoughts and attitudes of the heart.

Bible painting Hebrews 4:12

My life application:

I think what I am learning is that the Holy Spirit makes God’s Word come alive. Any passage will help me with instruction or correction. And God will ensure that he leads me to the passage I need to study for that day.

Tips for being able to do Bible painting.

  1. Outline first in pencil.
  2. Then use micron pens. I use number 01.Bible painting
  3. Use watercolour pencils to colour in where you want colour.
  4.  Here is a quick post that explains a watercolour pencil technique.
  5. Use water after you have finished with the watercolour pencils. A tiny bit goes a long way.

I would love to see your results. The whole idea is to learn scripture. I purchased Bibles from the thrift store when I started, before I purchased my journaling Bible. They work well. I also keep forgetting to add the date to the page when I paint.

Have you tried this before? What were your thoughts? Did you find any problems? Do you have questions? I would love to hear from you.

On Facebook we have a Facebook group page called Word of God Speak Group Community. Just ask to join.

Today is Word of God Speak – LinkUp

Word of God Speak – Linky Party

Word of God Speak – Linky Party

Blessed rather are those.

Today is the start of a new vision for my blog. God has been speaking into my heart more and more about not only being in the Word myself but encouraging others to do this as well. My Sunday Stillness name did not focus on that even though my posts did.

So today I have changed the name of the LINK to Word of God Speak. Each week I will look at one Scripture – just the way I did through my Titus study. I will use the SIMPLE Method of Study to discern what God wants me to learn today.

I will also be posting this link earlier in the weekend – 6:00 am EDT Or EST each Saturday depending on the time of year. This will give all my linkers 2 days of the weekend to link their posts. I hope this doesn’t lead to too much confusion. But if you read last week’s post you will know that my head has been full of ideas.

For the first Scripture I chose Luke 11:28 which has been my scripture for the new name for my blog – Growing Through God’s Word.

SIMPLE Method of Bible Study

S – Say the passage out loud:

He replied, “Blessed rather are those who hear the word of God and obey it (Luke 11:28, NIV).”

Jesus commented, “Even more blessed are those who hear God’s Word and guard it with their lives (Luke 11:28, The Message)!”

I – Find out all you can about the passage. When? Where? Why?

Other Scriptures from my Study Bible:

Hebrews 4:12  For the word of God is alive and active. Sharper than any double-edged sword, it penetrates even to dividing soul and spirit, joints and marrow; it judges the thoughts and attitudes of the heart.

Proverbs 8:32 Now then, my children, listen to me;
    blessed are those who keep my ways.

From Henry’s Concise Commentary are these words:

Though it is a great privilege to hear the word of God, yet those only are truly blessed, that is, blessed of the Lord, that hear it, keep it in memory, and keep to it as their way and rule.

M- Make a list of thoughts, questions and ideas.

First thing I can think of is that everyone cannot understand the word of God. I hear that we must have our hearts, eyes and ears opened and be blessed. And at that time we can also learn to memorize Scripture.

My hope is that each week I will work on a Scripture for the week – memorizing it, a word at a time.

How can I encourage others to join me in memorizing Scripture?

How can I encourage others to read a Scripture and let God help them see what is important for them for the day?

P- Pray for God’s Guidance

This is a silent time of prayer, listening to God Speak.

L- Life – How can I apply what I have heard from God to my life?

This is the hardest but the best part. Actually taking the time to listen to God. What I heard today was how easy it is to write and speak about God’s Word but very hard to remember it and obey it.

I thought of all the times I had heard about watching my words – and then I do it again with my hubby – I get upset if he doesn’t understand me. Why? Because I want to get my way. I want to be clearly understood – never thinking that he wants the same thing.

So OBEY has been the word I heard clearly today.

What I learned today is not to just read, study, speak and write the Word of God – but obey it. (tweet this)

E- Exit with a prayer of confirmation and acceptance.

Lord God, I love how you teach me through Your Word. I love how this passage might tell me something entirely different another time. But for today, what I heard clearly was to obey Your Word. I heard to take it deep into my soul by memorizing it. I heard to make it part of who I am. Thank You for teaching me this today. In Jesus’ name. Amen

I hope you have enjoyed my first post on Word of God Speak. Once again here is the scripture I intend to memorize this week:

He replied, “Blessed rather are those who hear the word of God and obey it (Luke 11:28, NIV).”

I will leave you with a favourite worship song of the same name by Mercy Me.

Let’s memorize this Scripture together.
