Happy Friday! I am off today as this is our holiday for the 4th of July. So I am excited that I finally was able to get some work done around the house and then take pictures of my next Scripture Challenge. The theme for this one was to be still before the Lord. This is one I that need right now. I actually have the verse I used on today's project tacked to my board at work. But lately I am not sure that I have been still enough as work has really been stressful. But after seeing Patter's post a couple of weeks ago, I have really tried to work even hard. There was a song she posted to her site that just spoke volumes to me and I want you to hear it and hope it blesses you as much as it did me. Jeremy Camp singing "Be Still".
How great was that? I just want to be still before the Lord so that others can see Him in me. I guess I will work on that until I finally leave this world. My verse is Psalm 46:10, "Be still, and know that I am God; I will be exalted among the nations, I will be exalted in the earth.” Now all I used was the 1st part on my canvas, but I wanted you to see the whole verse. Because, for Him to be exalted we must be an example, a witness of what He has done in our lives and in our hearts. I just pray that I exalt Him in everything that I do. That I can be still before Him and wait on Him to do the work in my life that I know needs to be done.
My canvas today is a 5X7 and I actually used an old stamp by Stampin' Up! that I have always loved. It reminds me of me when I go to the beach. I just see so much of God's glory there and it took me quite some time to find it. I had not used it in a while. But so glad I did find it because I love the outcome of this mixed media piece. I hope you do also.
A close up of the girl!
And of the verse which is a poor sun, but a beautiful verse from God!
Well I hope you enjoyed my post today and may God bless you and have a wonderful 4th of July.
