Jesus Calling: Creative Coloring and Hand Lettering

Jesus CallingIn Jesus Calling: Creative Coloring and Hand Lettering, we are truly able to experience His peace and presence in a whole new way. If coloring is one of your favorite things, this is for you!

In this unique coloring book, we are able to enjoy heavy stock, well assembled coloring pages. There are more than 100 illustrations for us to enjoy.

I have loved my copy of this unique coloring book, and I think you would too – especially if you find coloring to be a relaxing treat. Coloring has put my anxiety at rest and helped me to find His peace and presence. Which makes coloring definitely a worship tool for me. These beautiful illustrations add to this already special time for me.

Having a time carved out to sit in His presence, and prayerfully utilize colored pencils along with this Jesus Calling inspired artwork – could be just the medicine you find yourself needing. Whether it is a positive distraction from chronic illness (which involves debilitating symptoms that we just can’t escape), mothering (while the kids nap, you can color and destress), or release from a hectic work day, this could be just the tool you find yourself in need of today.

I am thankful for the opportunity to read and review this coloring book for you all. This is something you definitely will want to consider having on hand, for those moments when you need to destress. It is a beautiful work of art by Jesus Calling and Coloring Faith.

Over on Amazon, we can find this high quality inspirational coloring book, geared toward adults, and very affordable for a faith driven coloring book like this one!

Christmas: The One Thing Needed

This Christmas, which of these women’s examples will we follow? I feel like our spirits wrestle with how to be more like Mary and less like Martha all year long. Christmas: the struggle can go into overdrive, as many go into a “Martha” splurge. Will we choose to listen to Jesus?John 14:15 reminds us that if we love Him, we will obey His commandments. Will we choose to just listen, and allow our celebrations of His birth to be more centered on Him than traditions of this world?

May we finally choose to keep Jesus and His Word at the center of our hearts and all we do this Christmas season (and always), while all those close to us choose to be defined by how busy they can become.

Can we do that? If not for ourselves, then to obey the Word of God. I am reminded of what Jesus is teaching Martha. While he lets Martha in on the truth, Mary is commended for doing the one thing that is indeed needed.Let’s go back to this text that we find in Luke 10.

As Jesus and his disciples were on their way,
he came to a village where a woman named Martha opened her home to him.

She had a sister called Mary, who sat at the Lord’s feet listening to what he said.
But Martha was distracted by all the preparations that had to be made.
She came to him and asked, “Lord, don’t you care that my sister has left me
to do the work by myself? Tell her to help me!”
“Martha, Martha,” the Lord answered, “you are worried and upset
about many things,
but few things are needed—or indeed only one.
Mary has chosen what is better, and it will not be taken away from her.”

(Luke 10:38-42)

Is our celebration of Christmas a time of stressing out? It wasn’t meant to be. Will we take His light burdens instead of keeping on our heavy ones? May we choose to let this passage be close to our hearts. This is perhaps the Christmas message, we may forget every year. Maybe, this time, our hearts will listen. Our celebration of Jesus’ birth, does not have to be defined by our busyness, but His goodness and love that knows no bounds.
