This is faith art journaling: me thinking out loud on paper with paint. 🙂 This particular day it was in bright pink, turquoise and yellow. It was layers of collage and paint. It was notes all over the place as I contemplated.
This is what I love about faith art journaling. I started with praying and confessing my sins. Then Jesus whispered back to me, “Thank you for giving me those loads. Thanks for paying your debts to me by confessing and spending time with me. Now–no more worries, I have got this–I paid your debts to everyone. Go do some work for me–tell others how much I love them, that I paid their debts too. And really, all I want, is for you to Believe in me. I know the rest will follow. You will want to be a better person, so you will do better. I look forward to seeing what you do and become with me leading!”
Really, that is pretty much what happens when I sit down to paint and play. It is no wonder I want to do it every single morning. That I want to spend more and more time with it.
Do you have a way that you sit and confess and talk it over with Jesus? If not, you really should. It is so nice.
If you want, you can join me in painting. We started the Exodus study this week @biblestoriesfromtheheart.com I am sharing tutorials on how to get started using art to respond to faith and life. Who knows what God will whisper to you! I’d love to have you join us.
