Using Art to Remember (31 Days of Healing in Him)

Art journaling can be a worshipful activity. I use it to express my thoughts and feelings. To create with words and images ideas I want to meditate on or scripture passages I want to remember.

There is a common misperception that trusting in God means that he won't give you more then you can handle. If we hang our hope on this idea, we will surely be disappointed.

Here's an art journaling page I created of one of my favorite passages of scripture, Isaiah 43:2.

Whether I feel like I'm drowning or my feet are to the flame, God's promise to be with me, not if, but when the trials come, is a great comfort.

“Let me not pray to be sheltered from dangers,
but to be fearless in facing them.
 Let me not beg for the stilling of my pain, but
for the heart to conquer it.”
~ Rabindranath Tagore, Collected Poems and Plays of Rabindranath Tagore

I believe that God can use the course of working through our trials to help us grow, to strengthen and refine us.

CHALLENGE: Create an art journaling page that expresses or represents your favorite bible verse. Use it as a reminder and an encouragement of God's faithfulness and love.
