All things denote there is a God 🌎 Join me today as I journal this verse in my scriptures.
Watercolor scripture journal of Alma 30:44. “all things denote there is a God; yea, even the earth, and all things that are upon the face of it, yea, and its motion, yea, and also all the planets which move in their regular form do witness that there is a Supreme Creator.”
Once a roommate of mine asked me why I like the outdoors so much. I had to think about it before I realized the deeper reason why. This is what I learned from that question:
God created this incredible Earth for us. He didn’t have to make it gorgeous, but He did. The beauty of mountains and sunrises, oceans and forests, deserts and sunsets is solely for our benefit. It’s a daily reminder of his love.
And that makes me want to hike every trail, stop and notice every sunset, learn about every insect and travel the entire world. We each experience his love differently and nature is a major way I see God’s love in my life.
I use a journaling edition of the Book of Mormon from Deseret Book to record my thoughts and feelings on what I’m studying. And because I’m such a visual learner, this often is also an artistic expression of my testimony.
Because this book serves as a record of my testimony RIGHT NOW, I don’t worry too much about covering up other verses. I don’t study in this specific book, I don’t need to read the words. It serves as a way for me to document what phrases and verses stuck out to me at this moment in time. The next time I read through the Book of Mormon I will probably get another copy and it will look entirely different, filled with other lessons I learned; different verses that held different meaning to me.
