{Glory Art} Scripture Challenge #2 - Representative

I just have to start with this, I am going to love this challenge this year.  I have already felt the touch of my Lord as I was working on challenge 1 and now on this one.  As soon as I read Patter's post for the 2nd challenge, I felt God touching my heart.  I knew then that I have to choose what is more important in my life.  And just walking through the house all of a sudden this song came to me, Glory to God Forever.  I went and wrote it down right then.  If you have not heard this song, you can hear it here.  The words are wonderful and I just love singing it. These are some of the verses in the song.

Before the world was made, before You spoke it to be
You were the King of kings, yeah You were, yeah You were
And now You're reigning still, enthroned above all things
Angels and saints cry out, we join them as we sing

Glory to God, glory to God
Glory to God, forever
Glory to God, glory to God
Glory to God, forever, yeah

Creator God, You gave me breath so I could praise
Your great and matchless name, all my days, all my days
So let my whole life be a blazing offering
A life that shouts and sings the greatness of our King

Glory to God, glory to God
Glory to God, forever
Glory to God, glory to God
Glory to God, forever

Take my life and let it be
All for You and for Your glory
Take my life and let it be yours

As Patter said in her post, "What kind of representative are you for the Lord."  That really made me think and all I could think about was to bring Glory to God.  If I bring glory to Him, then I am a good representative.  Now I can assure you that I wish I brought glory to God each and every day, but I don't, but, I want too.  Reminds me of Paul there (Romans 7:15-20).   There is one thing I can say, the more I study God's Word, the more I see what I need to do to correct those days and the better I get at being a representative or ambassador for my Lord.

The verse I chose reminded me that everything I do, whether eating or shopping or working, whatever, I need to do it for God.  If I do it for God, I bring glory to him. 

So now without further ado, here is my mixed media canvas!  Yes, I decided to do mixed media again and I love the outcome.  I would change a few things, but all in all I am happy.  Why shouldn't I be, I did it for God!

Here are some close-ups!

Hope you enjoyed my post today and don't forget to go by and check out Patter's post.  I know you will enjoy it.  Blessing everyone!

Jonia, what a great worship song. I was not familiar with it so thanks for the link. I just wanted to hop out of my chair and dance around the room while I was listening to it. I too love the outcome of your canvas, it's so pretty. I think I'm going to try more mixed media for this week's art too. Blessings!

Thank you for sharing the song... how is this... we sang that song in Church this morning and I cannot remember having sung it before ( we have only been worshiping with this Church for 12 months).
