Day 4 of 100 Days of Bible Promises

Day 4 reminds us to Be Still

Psalms 46:10
   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.

Day 3 of 100 Days of Bible Promises

Day 3 of the devotional covers Nothing is too difficult for God

Jeremiah 32:27
   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.

Day 2 of 100 Days of Bible Promises

This devotional started on April 3rd, so I am working on getting caught up.
Day 2 is Don't be Afraid.
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.
As a child of God oh, he will always be there for us.
What are you afraid of? Will you hand that over to God? I am afraid of not doing a perfect job with my crafts and also not succeeding in my part time business but have decided to just not worry about it and just share what I do.

Day 1 of 100 Days of Bible Promises

I have committed to participating in the 100 Days of Bible Promises - A Devotional Journal by Shanna Noel from Illustrated Faith. Why? Because I want to have a deeper relationship with God.
Day 1 is about His Grace.
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.
Do not look at your weakness as something to keep you down but know that you are strengthened by the Lord.
I hope you will join me in this journey as I learn more about God and myself.

Bible Journaling Note Taking

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.
