Hello Papercrafters. Recently I had the pleasure of creating a project for Faith Art Friday over at the Layers of Color blog. The verse I selected to focus on is "Be still, and know that I am God" Psalm 46:10.
I wrote this over a week or so ago, and had no idea how quickly my life would change and how I would need to be reminded of this as well. We have had some family issues that have been very upsetting this week. So after a momentary emotional break down, I drew near to God, knowing that it was the only way I could have peace regarding this problem. Believing that my God loves me and will be with me no matter how difficult life becomes. I hope that this is a verse that you can fall back on as well when times of trouble come in your life. If you are in the mist of troubled times as we speak, please email me, I would love to pray for you.
Have you ever wondered how you would respond in the face of tragedy as a Christian? I have. In my life I have not had to deal with the fear, loss, pain and suffering that many have … and I wonder if my response would be one that would bring honor and glory to my God. Events of this past month around the world have broken my heart to hear about, and made me pause and wonder how I would have responded in these circumstances.
Sometimes we need to get out of Gods’ way. Let Him work. How do we do this? By knowing who He is. How do we reach a point in our spiritual growth that we can “be still” in the face of tragedy? By knowing who He is. How do we deal with the grief of loosing a child or loved one? By knowing who He is. How do we obtain peace in a time where others are falling apart? By knowing who He is.You can view more of my Cardboard Art HERE.
