When I need to process things, it helps me to draw/sketch and color.
I drew the picture above a couple of days ago & it’s inviting me to pay attention & take notice of what I am feeling in the middle of all that is this pandemic.
Also, this drawing sparks many questions for me to ponder and talk to Jesus about as I imagine the treasure chest, the ocean, the seashore, etc.
Maybe some of these questions can help you slow down & notice too.
In the midst of #covid19, what are you experiencing in these strange new seas we are navigating?
What are the hidden treasures you are discovering during this crazy season?
What are you learning about yourself during quarantine?
Are you swimming or treading water?
What have you discovered buried, but now surfacing?
What are the sharks that have circled you?
What have been the beautiful fish to enjoy?
What “shells” have you collected along the way?
What treasures have you found?
Could you find some treasure buried in the depth of the ocean of uncertainty?
Could the treasure chest of gifts be bigger than the fears, frustrations, and uncertainties beneath the waves?
Ask Jesus to show you.
This reminds me that
where your treasure is, there will your heart be too.
I’m reminded that
Jesus walked on water
Jesus calmed the stormy seas
Jesus provided an abundance of fish for his friends after they’d fished all night and not caught anything.
And Jesus already has the breakfast cooked on the beach ready for you and me to receive.
What does this sketch say to you today?
What images are speaking to you in the midst of covid19?
Why not get your crayons or markers out and do some coloring this weekend and invite the Holy Spirit to inspire you!
