"Be Still and Know that I am God" Mixed Media

This is my first mixed media creation. I wasn't quite sure how to begin but armed with Gabrielle's Tutorial and inspiration from Karin Sandy I jumped in. My husband and I faced a health crisis this weekend. I was praying and painting and this was the result. 

How often do we try to take on all the stressors in the world and forget to hand over our worries to God ?
We are told to "be anxious for nothing" in Phillipians 4:6, yet I continue to find myself anxious about so many things. We are so busy trying to run our busy lives that we forget to slow down and honor Him. This now hangs in my bedroom so it is the first and last thought of the day. Our Pastor ended a message one Sunday in a way I would like to share with you.

Be Still and Know That I Am God

Be Still and Know That I Am 

Be Still and Know That

Be Still and Know
