Hi My Lovely Friends,
Happy Valentine's Day! I hope your day is filled with extra special, lots and lots, heaps and mounds of love! I'm sure it is. I know there are oodles of people who love you (including me; I think you're fantastic!), I know you're the apple of God's eye and I know He's got great plans for you so, whether you get that box of chocolates or not, allow me to cover you in love one more time, "YOU ARE INFINITELY LOVED!" :)
Moving on, it's kind of cracking me up that this post is gonna' happen to hit on Valentine's Day but yah, it's all kinda' about dying. Dying to self, that is. And becoming alive in Christ.
In the last few days and weeks Holy Spirit has heightened my awareness of all the times I say, "I want this" or "I want that" and you know what, I've kind of become very uninterested in what I have to say. I really don't want to do what I want to do, I want to do what God wants me to do. (easier said than done but still very willing)
In fact today, it dawned on me that when "I" try to figure things out instead of trusting God and resting in His peace, "I" end up making a little mini-idol, false god out of myself. Ugh, I really don't want that.
Anyway, check out these pics - they might help describe what I mean.
I'd like to share my heart.
I had a different blog post planned but for some reason - likely Holy Spirit's prompting - this part of my heart is soft right now and I'd like to flow with it.
I've made some big changes in my life lately and I am so ready to do things His way, drop it all and follow after Him. He has been so kind and gentle to me lately as He has been teaching me so many new things about faith and believing in Him and granting me that perfect measure of faith to press on into a new vision.
And you know what, that's what I'm doing. Pressing on into a new vision. Constantly checking in to make sure I'm believing and "seeing" the right things in my head.
My heart is to see Jesus receiving His glory, God's kingdom released on earth and believers living in victory.
...And I want to do that one crayon at a time...
Yes, I said crayon. Crayon is really just a symbol for anything colorful and creative; marker, paintbrush, design program, pencil.
I have a simple heart to share simple scribbles that will bring folks deeper into relationship with Him. Simple things that release profound power.
So here's where my latest project comes in.
It's called "Marriage Blessings".
It's a list of 10 Scriptures for couples to speak over their marriages.
It's decorated with simple marker art.
Simple (me), yet profound (Him).
My heart was to create a pretty list that folks can glance at and speak a blessing quickly anytime of day; to keep them speaking God's Word.
That's why the list is short and that's why the list is cute.
Yes, God's Word is free and yes, there are already other lists out there and yes, people could make their own lists but, you know what - it's on my heart and it's just time to share.
I put time and effort and heart and love into "Marriage Blessings" and I'm pressing on.
