Drawing it Out

(thankful for battery operated fans, bug spray, and mosquito nets!)
(even more thankful for the RAIN we had while there. It isn't too common. Glad I packed clothes pins, lol)
One evening after a very long, hot, but wonderful day of VBS & Village Ministry time in Haiti I decided to lay here (above) in my bunk & spend some quiet time alone with the Lord. The last few months I've been listening to a song called, You Know Me, Stephany Frizzel sings it on the Bethel Loft Sessions album & it is incredible. The lyrics are so personal from the Lord. If you haven't heard this song yet, you are missing out. Take a listen... 



As you know, one of the ways I love to worship is through drawing out things that the Lord shows me during prayer time, his word, and as of last week through music. I truly love scripture & prayer doodling because it is a direct reflection of our creator coming alive within us. This is a type of worship that I use to think was "different" & "not for me" but now I am so passionate about it because of the depth the Lord takes me each time I hold my pen to paper while asking him to speak to my heart.  I encourage you to listen to your favorite worship song, grab a pen, paper, and try worshiping this way. You will be blessed! Don't worry about feeling like you "can't draw" because I use to feel silly but now as you can see, I'm so blessed by it that I don't mind showing the world the inside of my sketch book regardless of my skill level.

Yesterday while doodling I let Noah grab a few pens & draw too. He loves it. Its a great way to spend quiet time with your toddler. Anyhoo. Today I'm linking up here for worship Wednesdays.
