This time I grabbed a canvas and a black Sharpie and began to doodle. I read an article on Canva about how doodling can change your life, it makes you more creative, it keeps your brain from slipping into a default state (which when I am down...is a state of down-ness. )I was hoping that by focusing on something else it would help clear my head so to speak.
I started with a random shape overlapping on itself. Then I started filling in the shape with some patterns, and some Zentangle patterns I remembered from a class I took. (You can even see my "nap blankie" in the background of the photos. I was snuggled in for the long haul)
Transforming the doodle...Transforming my mind
When I was done with the doodling I started flipping the image around to see if I could make anything out of my "doodles" and lo and behold, I realized that I could imagine someone in prayer, hunched up, bowing her head.
The scripture came to mind:
" Do not conform to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God’s will is—his good, pleasing and perfect will."- Romans 12:2 NIV
