Topic: Bible Journaling
Day 9 of the Lenten Bible Journaling challenge was 2 Samuel 7:1-5 and 1-17. This section of scripture talks about David's desire to build a house for God and God's greater plan to build a house through David. I made the builder/planner cast a foreshadowing cross.
Day 10 was Psalm 110. This refers to Christ being an eternal priest in the order of Melchezidek. I had absolutely no thoughts on illustration to accompany this so created an acrostic with the name to describe attributes of Jesus.
Day 11 was Psalm 2 where I focused on verse 12: Blessed are all who take refuge in him. I illustrated a downcast stick-man taking refugeunder the protective hand of God.
Day 12 covered Psalm 118:14-24. I only used verse 20 and illustrated it with a cross - the gate of the Lord through which the righteous may enter.
Day 13 is using Psalm 69:1-1. David describes himself as being in need of rescue.
Day 14 - Psalm 109 - David calls down misfortune on his enemies. I contrasted this with Matthew 5:43-47 where Jesus instructs us to pray FOR our enemies and LOVE them. I used dandelion weeds as illustration.
Day 15 - Psalm 22 contains a picture of the coming crucifiction. There are scattered throughout it many phrases that we see repeated in the new testament surrounding the death and resurrection of Christ.
I borrowed an illustration from the internet but drew it myself.
Day 16 references Psalm 68:7-1. I used the early portion of this psalm and illustrated it with God's people marching out where God was leading them.
More to come as I continue to work my way through this study.
