Blessed is she who has believed that the Lord would fulfill his promises to her! Luke 1:45
I am taking a colored pencil class and we are drawing a fig leaf. This project took a few days, as I spent a few hours each time, working on the project. i started off with a new velvety leaf and by the time I got to the end my fig leaf was dry and crumbled up. Therefore my colored pencil fig leaf evolved through the days just like the real leaf.
This fig leaf reminds me of our lives with Christ. We can either be velvety fresh and green and always ready to learn new things through his word or we can become dried up and crumble if we let the enemy in our life and walk away from his word.
Spend time each day in his word and refresh yourself with his life flowing water (word).
Even though I don’t like eating figs I did enjoy drawing this leaf!
I started taking a colored pencil class hoping to learn some new techniques and work on my patience. My first exercise was doing this pear. I will have to say it took me 3 hours working on this project I really enjoyed it. It helped me to relax and slow down.
This bruised pear is a reminder of when we are bruised, hurt, and brokenhearted God is our source of hope and courage.
The Lord is near to the brokenhearted and saves the crushed in spirit. Psalm 34:18
we often wish we can escape troubles- the path of grief, loss,sorrow, and failure, or even the small daily frustrations that constantly wear us down. God promises to be our source of power, courage, and wisdom, helping us through our problems. Admit you need God’s help and thank him for being by your side.
This was inspired for a very sweet lady’s birthday.
