Be still, and know that I am God: I will be exhalted among the heathen, I will be exhalted in the earth.
How often do you just sit, relax and delight in the Lord? I try to do this several times a day, especially to thank him for all that he has given me. But I do not just sit quietly, while doing nothing, and consider what he has to say. This is something I must start doing a lot more often.
This page was done with a napkin and an image from a print and pray from Illustrated Faith.
Behold, I am the Lord, the God of all flesh: is there anything too hard for me?
Being a new child of God, trusting in the Lord is sometimes difficult. But I must trust that he will being me through as long as I will rest in His care, trust in His provision and look with anticipation on how things will turn out because He is God.
I started my page trying to paint a galaxy with watercolors because creating the world would of course be one of the hardest things to ever do. While the galaxy didn't look awful, I was not a huge fan. I then remembered I had a coloring page of Earth held in a hand, wouldn't that look wonderful on that page? And letter stickers to stand out with the sentiment of the verse.
I have so much to learn but I know this devotional will help me immensely. I hope you will join me and share your days.

Isaiah 41:10 fear thou not, for I am with thee: be not dismayed; for I am thy God: I will strengthen thee; yea, I will uphold thee with thy right hand of my righteousness.

2 Corinthians 12:9 And he said unto me, My grace is sufficient for thee: for my strength is made perfect in weakness. Most gladly therefore will I rather glory in my infirmities, that the power of Christ may rest upon me.
I love all of the Bible art journaling I see on Facebook, YouTube and other social media channels. But I have been struggling on where to start and what I wanted to include.
I decided to put some of my notebooks to use for this. I put some alphabet stickers on my notebook so I can keep track of the devotional I am working on. While reading through the devotional, I will be writing down notes and letting God talk to me. From these notes will come my art while I learn the verses.
