Advent: Sunday Scripture Doodles
One of my favorite ways to meditate with Scripture is to do this:
Scripture doodling. That's what I'm calling it anyways. It helps me focus, helps me memorize, and helps me treasure God's Word. I often spend time doodling on Sundays using the Sunday Readings from Mass. Today, as I sat down to pray, I realized that the first Sunday of Advent, the beginning of a new Liturgical Year, is a great time for, well, a new year's resolution. So I've decided to be a little more intentional about this idea. I broke out an unused journal, labeled the top of each page with all the coming Sundays this year, and started today. My goal is to spend time meditating on the Readings for each Sunday for the rest of the year and doodle a selected verse every week. I'll be documenting the journey each Sunday on Instagram using the hashtag #SundayReadingsScriptureDoodle. Come follow along, and jump in if you like!
In the meantime, here are four prayer cards for you from the four Sundays of Advent. Each has a verse from the First Reading of that Sunday with a promise from one of the prophets. Feel free to print and color them to help you pray and remember the purpose of this Advent.
