It is of the Lord's mercies...


His Mercy Endureth Forever

illustrated by Kathleen DeJong

To him which led his people through the wilderness: for his mercy endureth for ever. —Psalm 136:16 (KJV)

"Not all illustrations of Scripture are lawful or tasteful. However, Kathleen’s book of pictures carefully captures the beauty of God’s mercy described in Psalm 136. Each sketch has the imprint not only of a skilled artist but also of one who has meditated on God’s Word. Both children and adults will grow in gratitude to God by pondering the inspired text as it is illuminated by insightful art."  

— Rev. Jonathan Mahtani, Pastor of Cornerstone Protestant Reformed Church  

"Kathleen DeJong has beautifully illustrated Psalm 136 in this book. Some of these detailed, vibrant pictures portray actual historical events from scripture; others portray the spiritual reality behind biblical events. I especially appreciate that the book begins and ends with illustrations that remind us that the psalms were meant to be sung by God’s people—people who always rejoice in the goodness and mercy of their God."

— Karen Van Baren, Reformed Christian school teacher

      Interview with Kathleen DeJong on His Mercy Endureth Forever: Psalm 136

      Kathleen’s illustrations include both full-page paintings created with acrylics and simple drawings. Not only are the illustrations engaging, they serve the beautiful message of the psalm: God is faithful to his covenant people and to their children. To introduce RFPA readers to Kathleen and this new concept of children’s literature, we recently interviewed her about her illustration work and her upcoming book. Below is an excerpt from the interview:

      1. Why did you choose to illustrate a psalm? Why did you choose to illustrate this particular psalm?
      Psalms are some of the easiest Bible passages to follow, which works well for a children’s book. Psalm 136 in particular has a lot of beautiful imagery to make art from.

      2. Were there any children that you especially had in mind when you creating your illustrations? What did you want them to get out of the book?
      I had my nieces and nephews in mind. I want them to see how beautiful and diverse God’s creation is, from fields to mountains and the changing sky, and how amazing his miracles are, like the pillar of fire and just giving us food every day. His mercy endures forever.

      3. What do you think is the benefit of a book that contains only the words from a Bible passage with illustrations?
      Having this psalm illustrated gives you pictures to think of when you read it. For people who learn in a more visual way, this can even help them memorize the psalm.

      4. Was there a particular message you were hoping to get across in your illustrations?
      I wanted to get across the scope of God’s creation in many of the illustrations, which I hope I did by keeping the people small and the backgrounds large and colorful. God’s creation is so vast and complex, and yet he made us the objects of his love. For this and all the other things he has done for us we live gratefully every minute.

      His Mercy Endureth Forever

      illustrated by Kathleen DeJong

      And gave their land for an heritage: for his mercy endureth for ever:
      Even an heritage unto Israel his servant: for his mercy endureth for ever.
      —Psalm 136:21, 22 (KJV)

        O give thanks to the Lord of lords: for his mercy endureth for ever. To him who alone doeth great wonders: for his mercy endureth for ever. To him that by wisdom made the heavens: for his mercy endureth for ever.

        —Psalm 136:3–5 (KJV)

        The riches of God’s promises are for young children

         

        T is for Tree

        The riches of God’s promises are, indeed, especially for young children; God specifically includes them in his everlasting, unconditional covenant of grace: “...and to thy seed after thee” (Gen. 17:7). Our little ones may not be neglected. Even in the books we choose to read to them, we can and we must keep the vows we made at the time of baptism to “help and cause them to be instructed” in the “true and perfect doctrine of salvation” (the Reformed baptism form).
