Enduring Word Bible-Stand, Look, Ask

Enduring Word Bible- #53
Jeremiah 6:16

 The sixth Chapter of Jeremiah-
The Impending Disaster of Jerusalem.
Not a very uplifting section
 if you are under this banner of judgment.
The Lord clearly gives direction
 to His people here.
"Stand by the roads, and look, 
and ask for the ancient paths, 
where the good way is; and walk in it,
 and find rest for your souls."
I had never come across this verse
 until I started Bible Journaling-
reading His Word -with intention.
The reply of the people 
is like a four year old tantrum-
"We will not walk in it."
The Lord says to pay attention.
They reply-
"We will not pay attention."
And so it goes on....

Simple wisdom here-
the past will show you where to go.
"Ask for the ancient paths,
where the good way is,
and walk in it
and find rest for your souls."
Truth- plainly stated.
The challenge?
To obey.
It is a good thing to revisit this verse.

Supplies:
Colored pencils
 Green fine-point Sharpie pen

Lenten Journaling in Community- #1

I have debated whether  to share the journey of Lent 2020. Seems like so much has been  shifted in our world right now. But, I am learning that in these very fragile days,  it is precisely what these practices  have offered in community-  that have become reassurance and "saving grace." So I will go ahead and share the Visual Journey  of processing with the book-When From Death I'm Free. This was the joint effort of author Justin Rossow  and Visual Faith Coach Valerie Matyas. She rounded up talented artists  to add to the visual resources
 that tie together hymn studies  of both traditional hymns  and contemporary hymns by Kip Fox.
The book incorporates Visual Faith prayer practices
 that we have developed 
and teach in our learning communities. It is a 12 week study and I will share the journey  in the order that we are doing them in community,  using the order of the pages in the book.
