In this series - Faith Matters, the focus is on creating pieces in our art journal with an emphasis on faith building. Too often life hits us with an event, unwanted emotions, stress, anxiety etc and we can find ourselves floundering. That's when I turn to my bible and my art journal. I usually focus on a verse and create something out of that and see where it takes me. It's a visual prayer, an offering, a piece of love and the wonderful aspect to this, is that I ALWAYS receive in return so many blessings, encouragement and love from my Saviour and so will YOU!
Such love has no fear! 1 John 4:18 NLT
Do you ever find yourself fearing the future?
I think we all do and that's something I'm dealing with at the moment, both as an individual and within our family as we face some challenging times ahead with terminal illness and my father in law.
The above verse reminds me that I need not be afraid and that if I focus on His love for me, then that will help quiet my fears and anxiety, giving me the confidence to walk ahead knowing I'm not alone.
Below is the (part completed) piece I created and as well as sharing some of my thoughts, I also include a step by step video on my process.
