•DELIGHT• This verse has always “delighted” 😉, and if I’m being completely honest, intrigued me. while I know God truly does want to give me the desires of my heart, I also know sometimes my desires are not always best. Not always pure and right and holy. But His are. So as I pray through this Scripture, I specifically ask that he INSTILLS the desires of my heart to be in alignment with HIS desires. And I think those desires come into alignment when I truly am delighting myself in Him. Bringing the verse full circle in a beautiful way. I would love to know your thoughts on this popular verse... . .

Love others. ♥️♥️♥️♥️♥️♥️ . . I definitely have a love theme going on in my bible journaling lately. It’s a good theme! The bible says “The greatest commandment is to love one another” . You shall love your neighbour as yourself. There is no other commandment greater than these. Mark 12:31

brentlwhite. Genesis 32:9, 12: And Jacob said, “O God of my father Abraham and God

Genesis 32:9, 12: And Jacob said, “O God of my father Abraham and God of my father Isaac, O Lord who said to me, ‘Return to your country and to your kindred, that I may do you good’… But you said, ‘I will surely do you good, and make your offspring as the sand of the sea, which cannot be numbered for multitude.'” Jacob is preparing to meet his brother, Esau, twenty years after Jacob robbed him of both his birthright and his father’s blessing. Esau vowed to murder him back then. Will he still be angry? Jacob assumes the worst. Most of Genesis 32 recounts Jacob’s plan to appease his brother with generous gifts of livestock. “After that,” he thinks, “I can face him, and perhaps he will forgive me” (v. 20). In the midst of his fear, Jacob prays a prayer in which he reminds God of his promises to protect him, prosper him, and do right by him. Of course, if God’s promises are true, why is Jacob afraid? Doesn’t he know that he will be invincible—literally un-killable—until God brings him safely home? Even if Esau were still angry (which he isn’t), he would be unable to harm his brother. But I know why Jacob is afraid in spite of God’s promises—because I know my own heart. In his moment of greatest fear, Jacob’s feelings have betrayed him, as feelings often do. Jacob’s only defense against his feelings—and our only defense—is the word of God: “The Lord who said to me…” “You have said…” My point is, contrary to that great REO Speedwagon power ballad, we can fight our feelings—at least our feelings of fear, doubt, and despair—with the objective truth of God’s Word. So let’s start fighting! #ESVJournalingBible #biblejournaling #reospeedwagon

God is so good to us. Reviewing parts I read and studied back in January and being brought to tears. To see Gods character jump off these pages as evidence of how much He cherishes us. It blows my mind. It’s the most ridiculous kind of love. The kind that is so amazing, too amazing, that it doesn’t even make sense why I would be loved so fiercely with all my shortcomings. Nothing in this world can thwart God’s plan, and boy, am I thankful for that. #thebiblerecappodcast #heiswherethejoyis #chronologicalbiblestudy #esvjournalingbible #biblejournaling

Excellent #if_praisinggodfromatoz verse today...it was over 1 Corinthians 6:19-20...our body is not our own, it’s an indwelling for the Holy Spirit. Our body is His temple...meaning we must be careful how we treat our body and how we care for it! Since I kickstarted my health journey (again 🙄) this is an excellent reminder of WHY I must stick with it this time around. 😊💜 #expressivegrace #expressivegracebiblejournaling #illustratedfaith #esvjournalingbible #mamabooclaypouch #mildliners #thedailygraceco #bravelittletaylor

Luke 5:4-5: And when he had finished speaking, he said to Simon, “Put out into the deep and let down your nets for a catch.” And Simon answered, “Master, we toiled all night and took nothing! But at your word I will let down the nets.” Everything in Peter’s experience, including fruitless hours of fishing the night before, told him that Jesus’ word would fail. If the fish weren’t biting at night, they wouldn’t be biting in the daylight. Besides, Jesus is no fisherman: he had made his living as a carpenter. “Stay in your lane, Jesus!” But notice: Peter’s lack of faith doesn’t prevent Jesus from working the miracle. What a relief—the power is in Jesus’ word, not my faith in that word! In other words, my faith is in Jesus; my faith is not in my faith in Jesus. Here’s how this helps me: To say the least, I often don’t feel as if I’m a highly favored “son” of God in whom my Father is well pleased; I often don’t feel as if all my sins are forgiven; I often don’t feel as if the Father could love me as much as he loves his only begotten Son Jesus. My experience often tells me that God’s promises can’t be true. But in what or whom will I trust? My feelings, my experience, my intuitions? Or Jesus? Given my bent toward self-deception, who’s more likely to be telling the truth—Jesus or me? I choose to believe Jesus. #ESVJournalingBible #BibleJournaling

God is Holy...there is no one like Him. In Exodus 15:11 it ask, “Who is like you, O Lord, among the gods?” There is no comparison to our God. He is majestic holiness...He is exalted, marvelous, holy, great. We must learn to see Him for WHO He is and WHAT He can do and stop questioning His power. #expressivegrace #expressivegracebiblejournaling #if_praisinggodfromatoz #illustratedfaith #printandprayshop #bravelittletaylor #esvjournalingbible #mildliners #thedailygraceco #biblejournaling

brentlwhite. Psalm 90:15: Make us glad for as many days as you have afflicted us, a

Psalm 90:15: Make us glad for as many days as you have afflicted us, and for as many years as we have seen evil. Pastor Tim Keller, in his sermon on Psalm 88, perhaps the bleakest chapter in scripture, said that even that psalm “whispers God’s grace” to us. Otherwise, apart from grace, why would God—in his “living and abiding word” (1 Peter 1:25) no less—risk having his character impugned like this? Psalm 90, meanwhile, is only slightly more hopeful: the psalmist (Moses, in this case) at least hopes that something good awaits him and his people on the other side of their suffering. But I appreciate the psalm’s candor: “You, God, have afflicted us; you, Lord, are responsible for the evil that has come our way.” Many of us modern-day Christians are so anxious to protect God’s character (“My God would never cause suffering!”) that we end up impugning his power: “By all means, God hates that this is happening to you, but what can he do about it?” A few pastors and theologians appeal to Satan and spiritual warfare, as if that solves the problem: “The devil causes suffering, not God.” (Yes, but, who created the devil and permits him to have power over us?) No, the Bible affirms this difficult truth: When God afflicts us, he does so for our good—indeed, for our ultimate happiness. Besides, if this is true, at least you’ll know who to blame! I like the way C.S. Lewis, with typical English understatement, puts it: “If you think of this world as a place intended simply for our happiness, you find it quite intolerable: think of it as a place of training and correction and it’s not so bad.” #ESVJournalingBible #biblejournaling

A walk through memory lane... The break this summer has been a blessing and necessary. Now, the Lord is filling me an excitement and eagerness to get back to creating! Sometimes my mind is racing with ideas while other times there is a big question mark. Today as summer winds down and we take one last little road trip, I’m thinking and praying through what might be in store for The Life of Letters. I don’t have all the answers yet, but I’ve been refreshed with a renewed sense of focused purpose. •Thank you to all who have remained patient through the summer break!•

She is clothed with strength and dignity - Proverbs 31:25. A popular scripture today, but one that gives a beautiful visual of a woman whose strength comes from the Lord and not from herself. This woman faces life’s challenges with the confidence of a Mighty God within her. Do you know such a woman? If you ARE that woman, I know your life and your faith are impacting others more than you know. Many will see God’s power at work in your weakness - and come to know Him because of it. Stay strong - when you feel like giving up - our Faithful God will use your pain for Heaven’s gain.🙏🏻❤️. www.courageincolorshop.etsy.com #courageincolor #courageincolorshop #madetoencourage #handpaintedbible #handpainted #theholybible #godswordistruth #sheisclothedinstrengthanddignity #strongwoman #courageous #strength #sheis #fightthebattle #godiswithinher #shewillnotfail #esvjournalingbible #journalingbible #esv #crossway #staystrong #thelordisyourstrength #bestronginthelord #navy #pinkroses #florals #customdesigns #customart #artists #courage #proverbs31

One of the first Bibles I painted now in the hands of a woman that has always been an encouragement to me - my sister, Grace. Grace wanted to purchase this because she considered it not only a piece of art, but because it is God’s Word in a journaling format and ideal for quiet study time. She is a Godly example to us all as she lives her life from this book - The Holy Bible. Grace sent me these photos of her sitting with the Bible in her beautiful white patio garden in Vancouver, BC. The perfect setting for her quiet time with the Lord. I love the thought of her owning this very special piece. (Photos were taken by my brother, @ckarram who was visiting Vancouver,BC at the time - check out his page for beautiful photography) I am now taking orders for these painted Bibles so I can have them to you before I head to Ohio in September to await, God willing, our first Grand Baby, 🥰🙏🏻 when I will put my shop on “vacation mode” for a few weeks! These make beautiful, one of a kind gifts and truly are a piece of art. Semi-custom and fully custom options are available. How can I paint the cover of God’s Word for you to reflect a glimpse of the treasures found inside? www.courageincolorshop.etsy.com #courageincolor #courageincolorshop #madetoencourage #madeforyou #handpainted #handpaintedbible #theholybible #esvjournalingbible #crossway #journalingbible #journal #customart #customizeyourbible #quiettime #biblestudy #workofart #canvas #sister #brother #photography #weddinggift #weddingguestbook #loveneverfails #floral #godsword #encourageothers #christian #inspirationalartist #etsyseller #artistoninstagram

bibleartcreations. Ogni piccola creazione è un opera d'arte abile a trasmettere emozioni

Ogni piccola creazione è un opera d'arte abile a trasmettere emozioni a chiunque sia disposto a riceverne. Quando ne vedi una, anche se sei di fretta, fermati a gustarla un pochino, lascia che ti trasmetta quello per cui è stata creata :) . . Noi stessi siamo opere d'arte di un Creatore ben più grande e meraviglioso di quello che possiamo immaginare. Se ci fermassimo solo un secondo a considerare lo straordinario miracolo della vita non potremmo che traboccare di gratitudine verso questo grande Artista che ci amato a tal punto da venire su questa terra, vivere in modo perfetto e morire per le nostre colpe. Ma non è tutto qui, perché il terzo giorno è risorto!!! E proprio da quel giorno i colori sulla tela del mondo sono cambiati profondamente. Non più colori cupi e scuri, sono comparsi invece colori accesi e vivaci, toni chiari e bellissimi. . . In ogni mia piccola creazione provo a trasmettere la bellezza che Dio è, e spero davvero che questo messaggio arrivi forte e chiaro attraverso la mia arte! ❤️ Dio ti benedica! . . . . #godismyjoy #godislove #godismystrength #godisthereason #godisthegreatest #godistheartist #communityofchristiancreatives #christianartist #creazioniperilcreatore #creationsforthecreator #calledtobecreative #create #ymitoday #makermovement #handlettering #handmadewithlove #letterforthelord #letteringhislove #biblequotes #bible #esv #esvstudybible #esvjournalingbible #esvbible #studybible #faithjournaling #faithquotes

We serve an Eternal God. Have you ever thought about the way scripture starts...”but...” in Psalm 102:12 it starts “But you, O Lord.” Our God is enthroned forever...yesterday, today, tomorrow, eternally. He is remembered by ALL generations. So “But you, O Lord” means “No more than You, O Lord” or “Only You, O Lord.” Are you seeing our God as eternal today? As your “no more than” or “only”? #expressivegrace #expressivegracebiblejournaling #esvjournalingbible #bravelittletaylor #illustratedfaith #printandprayshop #mildliners #mamabooclaypouch #mamabooclay #thedailygraceco #godiseternal
