God is Love – Sketchnote Journal Challenge

This post will continue to focus on our study of El Kanna with a sketchnote challenge to illustrate a verse on love. I think the verse that really hits home for me in this study is that He thinks about me more than all the grains of sand. Psalm 139:18

Today is just a quick post. Take your hearts doodle practice and doodle up a verse on love. Here are several verses on Love, but this is not an exhaustive list?

Let all that you do be done in love. – 1 Corinthians 16:14

Anyone who does not love does not know God, because God is love. – 1 John 4:8

For God so loved the world, that he gave his only Son, that whoever believes in him should not perish but have eternal life. – John 3:16

Above all, keep loving one another earnestly, since love covers a multitude of sins. – 1 Peter 4:8

And above all these put on love, which binds everything together in perfect harmony. – Colossians 3:14

A new commandment I give to you, that you love one another: just as I have loved you, you also are to love one another. By this all people will know that you are my disciples, if you have love for one another. – John 13:34-35

Greater love has no one than this, that someone lay down his life for his friends. – John 15:13

So now faith, hope, and love abide, these three; but the greatest of these is love. – 1 Corinthians 13:13

We love because he first loved us. – 1 John 4:19

Beloved, let us love one another, for love is from God, and whoever loves has been born of God and knows God. – 1 John 4:7

There is no fear in love, but perfect love casts out fear. For fear has to do with punishment, and whoever fears has not been perfected in love. – 1 John 4:18

A friend loves at all times – Proverbs 17:17

“And now these three remain: faith, hope and love. But the greatest of these is love.” – 1 Corinthians 13:13

The Challenge:

Your challenge this week is to sketchnote a verse on love. In my bible study sketchnote book, I decided to do a spread with several verses. 


Sketchnote Book


TapePencil, eraser, 

Black pen

color -pencils,

water color….


  1. Start with a large verse in the middle, drawing a large box in pencil. I used John 3:16
  2. Use Washi tape to section off the rest of the spread to allow for verses and little boxes for heart doodles.  The Washi tape kept the watercolor in the boxes so it didn’t bleed over to other boxes.  Also, the Washi tape comes up without ripping the paper. 
  3. Pencil in the verse and image, the ink it in; be sure you’re using a permanent pen. 
  4. Add color. I used a combination of watercolor crayons, watercolors, and markers. 
  5. Remove the Washi tape and erase the pencil lines. 

Your results are going to be spectacular and I can’t wait to see them! Post them in the Skethnote Boss Facebook group.
