I feel so blessed to have a job I love. A job that often doesn’t feel like a job. A job that allows me to be me and be creative. When I stop to think about what I get to call my job, the path that God has put me on, I can’t help but feel overwhelmed with gratitude.
This is how I can glorify Him. This is how I can reflect the light to Him.
The way I have put God’s word in our own home so we can see it and think about it through our days… I get to do that for others! The way I am encouraged by the power and the beauty of scripture… I can help others to feel that encouragement!
One of my favorite prints that I have in our home is the “By His Grace” design. It was a mixed media piece I did as a background. After I scanned it, I decided to play with the colors a bit. It turned into this amazing rainbow of colors. Pretty and happy, but also pieces of deep and dark. It was the perfect mix. We get through it all, the pretty and happy good times and the deep and dark not so good times, by His grace.
I had a customer order this design in a canvas. When it came in, I took it out of the box, held it up and thought about everything His grace has gotten me through. I prayed for the family that would hang this in their home. I boxed it up and shipped it out. Shortly after that I received a message with a photo attached.
“I rededicated my life to Christ last year and am newly married. I believe in the importance of having God’s word throughout the house. This piece will actually be our first piece of “scripture” in our home. Thank you. It’s beautiful.”
This is exactly my hope. Filling our walls and our homes with His beautiful word. Surrounding ourselves with God’s truth.
There are so many special occasions around this time of year. Graduations and weddings and Father’s Day are all coming up quickly and what better gift to give than scripture and inspiration? I would love to offer a special in my shop so you can share this scripture art with your loved ones.
I would love to hear what favorite scripture you would want to have up on your wall? It just might inspire a new piece from me!
