2 Corinthians 10:4

I started out doing 2 Cor 10:5-6 and ended up instead with verse 4

For the weapons of our warfare are not of the flesh but have divine power to destroy strongholds.

I had a day of struggle... again. Friends, I am flawed and some days more flawed than others.
On the day I started this I was trying to get my emotions in check.
and this verse just really helped me put things in perspective.

I have a verse on the next page and I worried that the watercolor paint would soak through, but it didn't. I used watercolor and heat set it quickly. I added a layer of white watercolor paint and heat set. I used colored pencils to help define edges and add some golden colors. I had to go over my lettering again. 

Hope y'all are finding verses that are meaningful to you and are exploring your creative side with your faith! You don't have to be an "artist" to love your journaling Bible!

If you need a little help with your lettering or banners, Artsy Faith has two stamp sets available to help you Bible Art Journal CLICK HERE

Be encouraged my friends!

Psalm 51:10

This week I had a day where I was struggling with those around me.
I was super frustrated.
Some of it was my own condition and doing.
All I could do was reach for this Scripture.
I drew the verse and inked it and then wanted color like inviting water.
I inked it but didn't like the results. It looked like a muddy river and I wanted a sparkling pool.
I used some water color paints and it ended up closer to what I wanted.
I had to re ink the lettering.
Some days this is all I can pray.
And then I am thankful that I have these words to pray for strength and encouragement.
God knows each heart
and knows just how to reach and comfort each heart
Blows my mind
that He loves me like that!

I Belong to God | 1 Corinthians 6:19-20

I had a post written out for this one and it was lost.
I am having one of those days.
But at the end of the day, I belong to God!

I did this one to go with the 1st verse I did on our identity in Christ.
You can see the original post HERE

This one is on the left hand side of the page and the other verse is on the right hand side.
This was colored with colored pencils.

God With Us

In December we studied Jesus' birth in Sunday school. And at the same time I began reading a book on the names of God.
God With Us.
It reminded me of one of my favorite verses in Genesis 3 
v.8 And they heard the sound of the LORD God walking in the garden in the coolc of the day
That is God with them for sure.
I find such comfort in the verse and the name. 
Happy 2016!
