Fed by the word

Posted by Picasa  Some people write notes in the margins of their bibles, other highlight,  I tend to sketch in mine.  It is a way for me to better visualise what I am reading.  It allows me to slow down and really chew on Gods Word.  My prayer today is that God will grant me the Faith to walk out Psalm 1 in my life.

  I sketched this while reading Psalm 1:1-4

Blessed is the one
   who does not walk in step with the wicked
or stand in the way that sinners take
   or sit in the company of mockers,
2 but whose delight is in the law of the LORD,
   and who meditates on his law day and night.
3 That person is like a tree planted by streams of water,
   which yields its fruit in season
and whose leaf does not wither—
   whatever they do prospers.


  1. I'm intrigued by this, Patrick. I've drawn simple little drawings in the margins, but never across the script. I like the contemplative nature of this :-)

  2. I do the sketch in pencil which allows the text to remain visable. It tends to create a new memory point associated with specific verses and adds another dimension to my study.

  3. This is super cool. Psalm 1 dovetails with John 15, I've always thought. Meditating on His law day & night is another way to talk about abiding in Him. If we abide in Him, we draw from the river, our leaf never withers, & we bring forth fruit in season. Awesome.

  4. nice connection Teague. thx...
