Happy Monday! Today I get to share with you how I worked through Brave Little Taylor’s Fishers of Men digital devotional kit from the Print & Pray Shop. Yay!
After I printed her devotional content on white card stock (you could also use copy paper) I glued it into my traveler’s notebook insert reserved for all of Taylor’s wonderful devos. She does a great job of pointing us to God’s word, observing what it says and then asking prompting questions about how we can apply it to our lives. I worked through the questions and noticed Taylor’s devotional could easily yield several journaling pages. I set a goal to make five.
This set, which describes what it means to be a disciple, is full of aqua, pink, orange and blues. To create several pages I assembled a little “kit” of supplies to coordinate with the colors and theme of the printables so I could easily reach for those when creative time was available. I picked alpha stickers, enamel hearts, washi tape, a stencil (that looked like a net!) and a couple of stamp sets and placed them in a handy tray.
I was able to create one bible page for each section of Taylor’s description of a disciple.
Here are four of the pages I created in Matthew and Acts.
I am sharing the process for my fifth and final page on the Illustrated Faith YouTube channel today, paying tribute to Taylor’s fun hand cut alpha letters.
She points us to Luke 5 where we see Jesus instruct fisherman Simon Peter to lower his nets after a hard night’s work that yielded no catch. Simon says,
“because you say so, I will let down the nets.” -Luke 5:5 (NIV)
Taylor writes, “disciples trust the word and authority of Jesus, even when it doesn’t make human sense.” She then asks if there are any areas in our life that we have not given Jesus authority over and invites us to respond. Because you say so, Jesus, I will ___. I included the response box in my bible margin so I can go back and answer.
It is so fun to get to see the trajectory of Simon Peter’s faith journey-from fisher to fisher of men! And in her devotional Taylor shares how we can move beyond meeting Jesus to becoming his disciple <3
