February 20, 2018  Romans 8:35 Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? Shall trouble or hardship or persecution or famine or nakedness or danger or sword? ❤️ No matter what we are facing, we are never separated from His love.  It’s so wonderful that this has nothing to do with our successes, failures, strengths, abilities or talents.  It’s His love that protects us from all the enemy tries to use to destroy.  I consider 31-39 a “fight song” or “war cry.” We get to tell the enemy “Oh no you didn’t!” The evil will come in one way or another but nothing will separate us from Him. NOTHING.  He’s got us. He’s got your troubles and hardships! There is no condemnation for those in Christ. He’s got you and He’s not letting you go. 😍 I wonder what it was like to hear this letter read for the very first time! What a celebration that must have been.  Let’s join the party and share the good news!!#illustratedfaith #illustratedfaithcommunity #illustratedfaith2018 #illuminatedfaith #scripture #scriptureart #documentedfaith #documentedfaith2018 #everyday #journaling #journalingbible #journalingbiblecommunity #shereadstruth #sheletterstruth #bible #bibleverse #biblejournaling #biblejournal #bibleartjournalingcommunity #biblejournalingcommunity #bibleartjournaling #bibleartjournal #bibleartwork #lent2018 #createdtoday #communityofchristiancreatives #dailylettering

I’ve had many questions about paint and tools recently, so I thought I’d post a quick “my fave tools” list to answer some of those questions.
➡️Paint 1: Cotman watercolours by Windsor & Newton by the tube. I squeeze paint out into “half pans” (the little white squares) for easier use.
➡️ Paint 2: Caran D’Ache Neocolor II watercolour crayons. I rub the wet paintbrush on the crayon the same way I would for other paint.
➡️ Paint Brush: my absolute faves for watercolour are Black Velvet by Silver. Amazing brushes made of part squirrel hair and part synthetic fibers. I have rounds in 8, 6, and 4.
➡️ Glue: I use a Zig 2-way glue pen for die cuts and tabs or a Tombow pink tape runner (repositionable and then permanent glue tape).
➡️ Pens: Faber-Castell PITT artist pens in various sizes, Illustrated Faith journaling pens (both for black ink). For white ink the Uniball Signo and Sakura Gelly gel pens are great. The Signo is more like paint though. 
Have fun journaling and if you have any questions, be sure to ask!

Ephesians 2:10 shares that I am God’s masterpiece because I am in Christ, and therefore I can do things that God has planned and purposed for me to do for Him.  It’s a way of life, to walk with and in Him. It’s allowing Him to fill me and to flow out of me. It’s choosing daily, every moment, to surrender to His will. That’s how I become more of the masterpiece that I already am in Christ.

🎵You're making a masterpiece
You shaping the soul in me
You're moving where I can't see
And all I am is in your hands
You're taking me all apart
Like it was your plan from the start
To finish your work of art for all to see you're making a masterpiece🎵

“Take the case of one who, with a load above his strength, has been toiling some steep and broken path, when suddenly he finds it lifted off and transferred to another whose strength he knows to be more than equal to the task, and in whose sympathy he can securely trust. What would his feeling be but one of perfect rest, and calm reliance, and joyous freedom, as they went on their way together? And such is the blessedness of rolling our care upon the Lord—in weakness we are resting on superior strength, in perplexity and doubt we are resting on superior wisdom, in all times of trial and hard service we can stay ourselves on the assurance of his perfect sympathy. The literal meaning of the word rest, is be silent towards the Lord. With the eye fixed on him let all unbelieving thoughts be stilled, such thoughts as rise and rankle in the querulous spirit when it sees only its troubles, and not God in them, when the mists of earth hide from its sight the eternal stars of heaven. Then like Jacob, it may say morosely, "All these things are against me;" or, like Elijah, despondently, "It is enough now, O Lord, take away my life;" or, like Jonah, fretfully, "I do well to be angry." In regard to all such dark and unbelieving suggestions, the heart is to keep silence, to be still and know that he is God; silent as to murmuring, but not silent as to prayer, for in that holy meditative stillness the heart turns to commune with him. What is "resting in God," but the instinctive movement and upward glance of the spirit to him; the confiding all one's griefs and fears to him, and feeling strengthened, patient, hopeful in the act of doing so! It implies a willingness that he should choose for us, a conviction that the ordering of all that concerns us is safer in his hands than in our own.” —James D. Burns, M.A.

As promised here is my finished page that I was working on yesterday! It was so relaxing sitting down with some worship music and drawing/painting in my Bible. Seriously so good for my soul! In BSF this week we were focusing on God's glory and so I was really meditating on that and trying to imagine what it would have been like for the Israelites in the desert. I love this section about them following His glory. He was their guide on all their journeys. And He still guides His people today. 💜

This wreath and the way I lettered  Lord was inspired by @krystalwhitten I love her Lettering, her art, and her heart for the Lord. Her new book "Faith and Lettering" launches today, and I am super excited for her and all that the Lord has done through her journey! I'm excited too that now I know the steps to creating a beautiful wreath!!! I can't recommend this book enough! 🌼🌿🌸🌿

There's only one week left! Seriously people, you do NOT want to miss this!
Continuing my #biblejournaling through the book of Exodus for #lent2018 with @shereadstruth . I’m continually amazed at the willful stubbornness in the heart of pharaoh and then God graciously shows me my own willful stubbornness and how relentlessly He tries to get my attention and pursues my heart. #biblejournalingcommunity #bible #scripture #illustratedfaith #illustratedfaithcommunity #devotions #jesusandcoffee
I’ve been working on writing some devotionals for our #FGJourneyRetreat in April, and man this hit me square in the face. I’ve debated over whether what I was writing was what needed to be said, whether it was worth reading, etc... I want to be a mountain mover and stop questioning myself in this journey; I’ve got to give it to God and let the Spirit Lead Me. “You have circled this mountain long enough. Now turn north” Deuteronomy 2:3 #illustratedfaith #biblejournaling #biblejournalingcommunity #flintgypsybiblejournaling #flintgypsies #journalingbible #journalingbiblecommunity #mountainmover #if_allpeopleallnations

“There is rejoicing in the presence of the angels of God...” 💜 Today would have been my big sis’s 55 birthday. She joined Jesus far too early in my opinion. But God told her to come home, regardless. She was an amazing gal... loved by everyone. No one could move at her funeral... that’s how crowded the funeral home was! We were very different, my big sis and me. I followed Jesus. She followed her friends... into drugs and alcohol and parties. And you see... that’s what’s so great about my sharing today... #regardless... she was a child of God 💜! She was always my protector when i was little. And she was my smile no-matter-what as we got older. (Once she punched a boy right in the face for me when i was about eight and he was making fun of me and how poor we were. HA! She was my hero!!!) Today, as i journal in my Bible, i fight back the tears because i miss her. But i also tear up because I’m glad i had her for as long as i did. She was a very special woman! Her name is... Angel.

I absolutely love the look and the process of watercolor painting. However,  I'm NOT very good at it. Watched a tutorial video from @scribblinggrace last night and my life has been changed forever!! LOL! Thank you sister! I can't wait to try these in my Bible. Note: The pink rose was done last night. I just created the purple rose this morning.  Practice. Practice. Practice. #hispalette #biblejournaling #biblejournalingcommunity #bibleart #faithart #watercolors #watercolorflowers #scribblinggrace

I had SO much fun creating this page using the new elements from @illustratedfaith ! I started out wanting to focus on a single word/“fruit” that I needed to work on and when I got to narrowing down I realized just how much work I could use in ALL those areas. “But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, self-control; against such things there is no law.” Galatians 5:22-23 #illustratedfaith #biblejournaling #biblejournalingcommunity #flintgypsybiblejournaling #flintgypsies #journalingbible #journalingbiblecommunity #fruitofthespirit

MATTHEW 6: 7-15

And when you pray, do not keep on babbling like pagans, for they think they will be heard because of their many words. Do not be like them, for your Father knows what you need before you ask him. “This, then, is how you should pray: “‘Our Father in heaven,
hallowed be your name,
 your kingdom come,
your will be done,  on earth as it is in heaven.
 Give us today our daily bread.
 And forgive us our debts,
 as we also have forgiven our debtors.
 And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from the evil one. For if you forgive other people when they sin against you, your heavenly Father will also forgive you. But if you do not forgive others their sins, your Father will not forgive your sins.

For those of you wondering how my early mornings with Jesus have been going for #lent - here’s a quick update. This is what my mornings look like! A mess everywhere on my desk but my Bible open and my heart receiving God’s goodness and truth first thing every day because #wordbeforeworld ❤️ I start with the “One Thousand Gifts” devotional by @annvoskamp which leads me to prayer and counting my many thanks to God on a list of 1,000 at the back. Then, I’ve been doing Bible journaling or opening up my #faithandlettering journal by @krystalwhitten and practicing some scripture lettering. That’s what you see open here. Doing this helps me meditate on a verse and helps me visualize it in a meaningful way so I’m more likely to remember it. Don’t mind the fact that my brain doesn’t work well enough in the morning to spell Ezekiel correctly, even when it’s right there in front of me!😂🙈 Anyway, I haven’t missed a day since Lent started, but my time with Him has varied from 5 minutes (from bed) the first day to over 30 minutes most days now. It’s already becoming easier and it shapes my mood for the day. Starting with thanksgiving to God is the only way to do mornings in my book!☀️☕️📖🖊 How do you start your day with a focus on the Lord? I’d love to hear what works for you below.👇🏼

Bible Journaling changed my life. The process of spending time meditating on God’s Word while releasing creative energy was such a pure way to meet with the Savior. I memorized more scripture than ever too. But this past two years I took on additional responsibilities that required my time in the Word to be more study focused than artistic. Like Psalm 63:1 says, I have felt  myself THIRSTING for those mornings where I journaled the Word.
As you can see in the second photo, My journaling Bible is FULL! There’s not more than 30-40 pages that are blank in it. So yesterday I excitedly purchased a new Bible exclusively for art. (Boy how they’ve come a long way. When I first started there was only one option available. Remember that @pameeboo and @ibtough? ) I can’t wait to dig back in to the Word and “draw” near to Jesus in this way again. 🎨👩🏼‍🎨
My encouragement to you -if you read this far down 🙃- is to listen to those aching desires within you that are thirsting to draw near to the Lord. Whether you journal or study or listen to podcast or whatever your method is, make the time and do. I’m rooting you on. 😘

There’s not more than 30-40 pages that are blank in it. So yesterday I excitedly purchased a new Bible exclusively for art. (Boy how they’ve come a long way. When I first started there was only one option available. Remember that @pameeboo and @ibtough? ) I can’t wait to dig back in to the Word and “draw” near to Jesus in this way again. 🎨👩🏼‍🎨 My encouragement to you -if you read this far down 🙃- is to listen to those aching desires within you that are thirsting to draw near to the Lord. Whether you journal or study or listen to podcast or whatever your method is, make the time and do. I’m rooting you on. 😘 * * #biblejournalingcommunity  #biblejournaling  #illustratedfaith  #1000gifts  #wordbeforeworld  #cultivatewhatmatters  #wellwateredwomen  #shewritestruth  #powersheets  #womenintheword  #proverbs31  #propelwomen  #lampandlight  #1000gifts  #jesuseverywhere  #shereadstruth  #psalm63  #faithondisplay 
It’s Tuesday...which means there’s a new Creative Faith YouTube video up! I had you guys vote on which one you wanted to see today, and the hymnal process video won. I used the latest #creativefaithcutables “Release Love” to create in the hymnal. This hymn talks about asking God for help to know what work and acts of love we should do during the day. // Have you journaled in a hymnal before? Let me know in the comments below. 👇🏼 #hymnalart #hymnaljournaling #hymnsillustrated #hymnalartjournaling #documentedfaith #creativefaithco #biblejournalingcommunity

Let me just assure you that God wastes NOTHING. The drawing on my iPad is from a group of drawings He created through me when my son was a baby, 21 years ago. I was in a time of taking care of my dad who was in the end of his struggle with schizophrenia. My dad was living with us and then lived in the VA home for the last 3 years of his life. I was soooooo beyond blessed to have him back in my life, as my parents divorced 7 years before this and he had moved away. This morning in the hotel dream land, God gave me this vision to create this page from this old drawing. And guess what, newspapers are free 🤗so what’s your story??? Tell it! It has just as much importance as Ruth and Naomi or Esther or Abraham’s Sarah or Daniel. We are today’s version of the Bible stories. Tell them! Tell how He has brought you joy and peace and love❤️ *

Ladies, Katie's words are the words that have been echoing in my own heart. This very morning God also told me to "own my story" and remember every day is an "&"... because my story is not over yet...and I always get the happy ending. 
Thanks for sharing, Katie. -------------------------------- I've been chewing on this thought all morning... a much needed kick in the pants.

Comparison is a killer. Own your story - God has gifted you with it for a purpose. Be you, bravely.

"hungry dreams" || each morning, she surrounded herself with the items closest to her heart. they pulled on the strings of her soul. they grasped at every free moment found in her imagination--those times spent staring longingly out of window panes or blankly into another's face when she was drowned in the hum conversation. her hands were itching to wipe tears from hopeless eyes, to wrap their fragile hearts in moments more than merely words. to come home with feet caked in dust and scars and a heart no longer starved, but satisfied every day, because she was no longer the one receiving all the love, but freely and fully giving it away.

Bible-journaling my way through the She Reads Truth Lent study. This verse in 2 Corinthians caught my attention for a while: “For every one of God’s promises is ‘yes’ in [Jesus].” Reading through Exodus now with this idea in mind. It all points to Him. (Also, you guys suggested the Target paints, and boy, they didn’t disappoint. At $2 a bottle I might’ve gone back for a few more! 😂) #illustratedfaith #biblejournaling #biblejournalingcommunity #srtlent #printprayshop

“And now these three remain: faith, hope, and love; but the greatest of these is LOVE.” (1 Corinthians 13:13) Here’s the page I created on Valentine’s Day, using the February Faith Art Box from @creativeretreat.  Head on over to the Creative Retreat blog to read the heart behind the art, and then catch the process video on the CR YouTube channel. I share how to alter and mask the actual stamps to make them say what you want them to say! The blog post has the video embedded. (Links also in profile)

One of my high school best friends has just lost her sister and I am praying for peace and comfort over her soul and the family members who will keep her in their hearts and memories 💜 •
•
➸ Prayers to all those who are grieving at this time, sometimes it’s hard for others to understand that it’s all a part of God’s perfect plan. • In the moment they may ask “Why, why did this have to happen to her?” It’s common that we as humans question but, the action should not be a question, it should rather be an act of trust and leaving it all in God’s hands. Even if we do not understand, only our Father in Heaven does and that’s what matters.
•
➸We are there to support those we love and remind them that God will not abandon them/their family during the hard times. Faith is not easy but it’s rewarding when you trust God and see what he can do for you when you love and believe in His word. ➸Trusting Him will give you comfort, a sense of peace & never ending love when you need it the most. The mother of one of our other good friends described death and birth as similar actions. For new parents they often wish and plan how they would like their child to one day grow up and be. For those who are passing away, they should be eager to finally meet God when the time comes. Just as the parents are eager for their children to be born, God shares that emotion in a grand level knowing we will be joining Him and finally getting to the place he’s wanted us to end up in ❤️🙏🏻

Just a little self reminder, because through God I can do all things 🙏🏻 with him nothing is impossible.

I get overwhelmed sometimes wanting to know all the answers at once. I want to know what God has planned for me but I have to trust to enjoy the process of whatever it is I’m pursuing. 🙈

We often expect to receive blessings or promises from God without doing any work or going through any trouble, and honestly this would be great but would it have any changing effect on us? The truth is in order to receive God’s promise we must be obedient and do what he is asking us to do. This may mean we will have to go through hardships and in order to overcome those we need the Endurance and Strength only The Lord can give us. Those hard times are there to give us life changing lessons and eventually lead us to His Promise... ➸ {Marisols Morning Reflection}
