I recently joined a group of friends for a creative Bible study in Psalms. Using the book Psalms Alive by David Kitz, we’ll be working our way through several Psalms in the next weeks. We share our thoughts and creations in a Facebook group (since we’re far apart geographically).
We started our study by reading David’s Preface. I underlined statements like:
“Within the Psalms we hear the deepest longings of the human heart.”
“When we handle the Word of God, we are handling life.”
“When we take hold of the Word of God, it takes hold of us.”
That last really grabbed my imagination, so I decided to reflect on it in a drawing. I paired it with Psalm 119:25-32, which is full of how God’s Word, interacting with us, brings changes—positive changes.

Let’s accept the challenge to allow God’s word to revive us, teach us, strengthen us, give us understanding, remove things from us, and more as we move toward the goal of a God-enlarged heart:
“I will run the course of Your commandments,
For You shall enlarge my heart” – Psalm 119:32.
