Quiet Time Turned Colorful! [Christian Coloring Book & Devotional in One!]

Adult Coloring Books are the newest craze and for good reason! Coloring helps us relax and focus, two qualities I’d like to have during my quiet time with the Lord, but it’s not always that easy.

Have you ever found yourself losing focus while reading God’s Word, feeling guilty for leaving your quiet time last on your to-do list, or skipping it altogether?

BEEN THERE, DONE THAT, BUT NO MORE!
YOUR QUIET TIME WITH THE LORD IS ABOUT TO TURN COLORFUL . . .

with our new Christian Coloring Book, Lord Help Me To Flourish, co-authored by Nathalie Villeneuve and myself. It’s really the first of its kind, and we’ve lovingly named it after two activities we both love—coloring, and devotional reading. Hence the name of our subtitle—

A COLORING DEVOTIONAL!
OUR MISSION— TO HELP YOU FLOURISH IN FAITH WHILE EXPERIENCING GOD THROUGH THE CREATIVE ARTS.

Lord, Help Me To Flourish. A Coloring Devotional

Your quiet time with the Lord should be the most EXCITING, REFRESHING, and FULFILLING time of the day!

Dear friend, God longs to meet with you as a close friend and refresh your spirit. This book is really food for the soul. But not just any food—it’s fun, flavorful, zesty, colorful, and fulfilling. I truly believe that once you taste and see that the Lord is good (Psalm 34:8), you’ll want more of God, and your quiet time with the Lord will become your most cherished time of day!

IF THAT’S SOMETHING YOU LONG FOR, READ ON, SHARE IN OUR FLOURISHING FAITH JOURNEY, AND DISCOVER WHY THIS BOOK IS SO UNIQUE…

First Thing in the Morning

Excerpt from the book, Pawz and Pray, Short Reflections About God, Life, and the Dogs I Love! 

 

First thing in the morning, my Cavalier King Charles Spaniel thinks CUDDLE, my Tibetan Spaniel thinks PLAY, and my Labrador thinks FOOD! First thing in the morning I’m thinking about my “TO DO” list! Can anyone relate?
PP photo Hanky ball textMaking lists can be very useful, but when anxious thoughts greet us with the sunrise, nag at us all day, and accompany us to bed, something is out of balance. Recently I became so overwhelmed with my “To Do” list that all I could do was cry. Yet while the storm was ragging within, my dog sat calmly at my feet without a care in the world. How envious I was of her in that moment. She knew where to turn for all her needs and trusted that I’d provide for her. Little did I know at the time, but I also had someone to care for me. . .

Early the next morning I found myself rolling out of bed and onto my knees. Feeling defeated from my struggles I buried my head in my pillow and prayed, “Oh God, there’s way too much on my plate, I’m overwhelmed, and need your help . . .” I lingered awhile with God, talking, listening, crying, and reading some Bible verses. Those early morning prayers became the calm in my storm. I was comforted, renewed, and ready to face the challenges ahead, but this time I knew, I wouldn’t be alone!

Turning to God before setting out on our day can be one of the hardest things to do. It certainly was for me, and often still is. My tendency is to think that I can do “life” on my own, when in fact, I was created for companionship – to walk hand in hand, by faith, with my loving Heavenly Father. Thankfully, my never ending “to do” list is there to remind me of my need for God. By the way, that’s not an admission of failure or weakness, rather of victory, humility, and strength! “For I can do everything through Christ, who gives me strength.” Philippians 4:13 NLT

Dear friend, your “to do” list will always be there. Why not invite God to help?

In the morning, LORD, you hear my voice; in the morning I lay my requests before you and wait expectantly. (Psalm 5:3)
