Who would have thought that a few markers and a sheet of paper with a drawing on it could provide such a rich, relaxing worship session. I’m talking about Scripture coloring pages. In this post you will find Bible verse for both adults and children to color.
Scripture coloring pages for adults
There is currently a craze around adult coloring. It’s popular because research supports its effectiveness for reducing stress and anxiety.
Although much of this research was done on people coloring mandalas, I do think there is value in coloring just about anything that appeals to you personally.
Coloring is a form of art.
According to researchers, when you spend time coloring, the parts of the brain that are responsible for anxiety become otherwise occupied by your deep concentration on the images, patterns, shapes, and colors on the page.
The result is that your heart rate is reduced, your mind relaxes, and a sense of calm overtakes you. In essence, your brain is forced to refocus.
So instead of anxiety provoking thoughts, your brain now gets food for thoughts on other things.
And how great it is when those thoughts are on the Word of God as well as uplifting, inspiring messages.
Are you having a difficult time in life right now? Scripture coloring pages can help. There is a coloring page for every holiday in the year!
Encouraging Bible verse coloring pages for adults
When I was in high school I was pretty good at Art. Or so I was told by my teacher. It was probably the only class in which I felt I wasn’t actually doing work. It was so relaxing to draw, shade, paint and color.
When the time came for me to narrow down my courses towards my career choice, I did not think art would be beneficial for my future. So it did not end up on my list. But I since then, I’ve always enjoyed coloring.
Sometimes life gets so busy and overwhelming that I forget about it as an option for relaxation. I’m getting back around to it now though. And I’ve started with creating these encouraging pages with Scriptures to color.

Ever heard the saying that you should never pray for patience because if you do He will send you trials? Trials are one way God helps use to develop the fruits of the Spirit. But usually, His first strategy is to speak to us through His word. You can cement these words in your heart with coloring pages while you listen to a sermon on the subject or curated playlist.

christmas bible verse coloring pages
Christmas is my favorite holiday. There is something magical, peaceful, romantic, and holy about it. I got married in December so that definitely adds to the magic of the Christmas season.
But Christmas can also be crazy, especially if you’re from a big family. Think Home Alone. You might have to hide to get some alone time with God.
These holiday Bible verse sheets can help with that, especially if you are an introvert battling the idea of too many people in your for an extended time space.
If that’s not your situation, you can enhance your holiday devotional time with these Christmas Bible coloring pages.

thanksgiving bible verse coloring pages
Fall. The time of year that I appreciate for all the yellows, reds, browns, and burnt oranges. Once the weather cools and I start to see the leaves changing, I know the end of the year is close. It’s almost time for Thanksgiving.
That’s my cue to start reviewing the year. Think of my one word or phrase for the next year. Map out some goals.

valentines bible coloring pages
Honestly, Christian valentines day coloring pages printables are always so boring. I mean in terms of the Bible verses that are on them. If you have kids, I know you didn’t conceive on the song Blessed Assurance.
I understand that the ones for kids need to be of a certain focus. They need to be appropriate. I’m an educator. I know that. But I rarely ever see any that I could color and gift to my husband as a truly romantic gift that is also Biblical. So I decided to create two.
Let me know what you think.

Easter is definitely one of the most somber Christian holidays. It’s a time to slow down and consider the sacrifice Jesus made for us. It’s a time to hone in on the Easter story. Read it from different versions and all other verses that make reference to it.

bible verse coloring pages for kids
Quite often, children are given coloring pages in church to keep them quiet or as an activity to occupy them.
Coloring for children is more than just a stand-in activity. Coloring helps to develop their fine motor skills which they need to do everything from feeding themselves to writing to playing board games.
Coloring also helps with their hand-eye coordination so they are able to copy notes from the board at school.
In an age of overstimulation from electronic devices, coloring can help children to concentrate, focus, relax and calm their emotions.
