#Repost @mae_and_marz with @repostapp "But I am like a green olive tree in the house of God. I trust in the steadfast love of God forever and ever. I will thank You forever because You have done it. I will wait for Your name for it is good in the presence of the godly." Psalm 52:8-9 The Lord often speaks to me through nature and the laws of it. It makes me feel less "out there" that David also used nature as a way to think about God and walked with Him too. Thank You Lord for the imagery…

A little green inspired Bible journaling on this St. Patty's Day... And what vivid image of what trusting God can look like: "But I am like a green olive tree in the house of God. I trust in the steadfast love of God forever and ever."

"Joy is the serious business of heaven" C.S. Lewis I love the richness and beauty of the feasts and festivals in the Old Testament. After all - our God commands us to CELEBRATE! God designed the feasts to point to the ultimate fulfillment of them all - Jesus and His return! And He is the reason for our joy no matter what we may face in our lives. It is not positive thinking - but a confidence in Whom our strength is found. While sometimes I can be a little 'joy-impaired' I believe that joy…

Joshua chapter 4 with #goodmorninggirls Bible reading plan. My husband has a habit of writing down all of the blessings, miracles and victories that God has done in our lives from time to time. They are reminders of His love towards us. Something to share with the boys when they get older...proof that He was with us from the beginning and that He has never failed. Joshua told the children of Israel to gather river stones as evidence of the miracle of the parting of the Jordan River; to share…

I remember the days I would just look up a verse in my phone and call it a day. "I totally spent time with God today." . Through #biblejournaling my time with God has been so much more intentional! . This morning I just felt yucky.. I felt in a bad mood and irritated. As I opened up my @shereadstruth app (I'm doing the psalms study until lent ) this verse is TOTALLY what I needed to hear! Verse 13 states "keep your tongue from evil and your lips from deceit. Turn away from evil and do good…

If there were ever a thing I need to learn over and over again (there are lots actually) it's how to wait well. I know I'm not the only one that finds myself in a constant season of waiting. All guilty parties give a nod. It's part of the human condition the way we always look for more- more adventure more purpose more money more fulfillment- and we want it now. My current state of waiting is one of transition- that awkward in between stage when you know that you know what's next but have no…

"The sea looked back and fled the Jordan turned back; the mountains leaped like Rams the hills like lambs." Psalm 114:3-4. What a cool description of the affect the hand of God had on the earth. ##illustratedfaith #illustratedfaithdaily2016 #illustratedfaithcommunity #biblejournaling #biblejournalingcommunity #journalingbible #journalingbiblecommunity #illustration #watercolor #handlettered #moderncalligraphy #uniballsigno #sea #ocean #wave #oceanwave #mountains #paintallthemountains…

Day 23. This song (Running for You by Kip Moore) was on repeat for me this during my swim weekend. It's probably supposed to be some sort of love song from my experiences I can totally see it but I was really reminded of it when I read this passage in Exodus. The Lord has finally lead the Israelites out of Egypt just as he has promised. It was easy Pharaoh was downright impossible but God was faithful to his word and came through in the end. Not everything in life is easy in fact most of it…
