Each week I fall in love with God’s Word more and more as we dive into different aspects of Galatians 5:22-23. I also fall in love with the images God puts on my heart each week. Week four is all about peace and the watermelon.
Why a watermelon? Download the devotion below and read the third prompt under “Going Deeper.” My favorite image to use this week? The cute watermelon sandals! I want a real pair for myself.

I was wandering around Target before I did week four of this class, and I found the cutest coloring book. Each page has fruit or popsicles or ice cream pages to color. The pages are a thicker cardstock, which are perfect to create flaps and folds. I had a lot of fun painting the watermelon page to use in week four of Produce in Me.
On the backside of the watermelon flap, I painted the actual fruit with a small bite taken out. I printed some of the elements on sticker paper, like the amen circle and the small peace word. The tiny hearts I drew all over the page are so cute.
I journaled Psalm 34:14 in my Bible this week and used the sandals on the freebie to represent chasing or running after peace each and every day.
It is interesting how as we study and dive into different topics in the Bible, the devil begins to attack us in those exact areas. The story from the devotion about being home alone is from a month or so ago. Since then, I have moved out of my parent’s house and into a townhouse with my cousin.
Right as I was preparing for week four (all about peace), she left for a trip. The other night I was home alone, and I started worrying and getting scared again. An image came to mind that I want to Bible journal later this week. I thought of a watermelon umbrella. Little black seeds/rain are coming down all over the silhouette of the girl holding the umbrella.
Remember, God’s peace covers you. Satan will try and take away your peace, but cry out to God, and put on your watermelon sandals to focus on peace this week.
Do you struggle finding God’s peace each day? What has helped you keep your eyes focused on Him when the devil tries to take away your peace? Leave a comment below!
