Coloring with new prisma colors

Standard

Thanks to my wonderful husband for the new prisma color colored pencils. I’ve been making coloring pages for my etsy shop (JournalingArt) (jbecreate on IG).

Today I enjoyed coloring this faith coloring page. Drawing these pages is my favorite part but coloring them is something I like to make time for too. It’s great therapy.

If you’ve only used regular colored pencils blending with prisma color colored pencils will be very exciting for you. I will never forget the first time i used prisma color pencils and the feel of the soft core and how well they blended. My first set was a set of twelve and in high school. And they are still as amazing as I remember the first time I used them. I highly recommend them for coloring pages or any art. They are worth the price and if you watch you can find them on sale on amazon or Dick Blick for a very reasonable price. I found mine for more than half price.

Wisdom

The owl represents wisdom and the butterfly represents change and growth. Personal growth is important. Also important, taking authority over your thoughts, your words, and your life. Stay in His word and listen to positive words for a positive life. I always enjoy Joyce Meyer and her teaching.

What did I learn from my first bible journal experience?

What did I learn?

I learned to relax and pray. I learned to meditate on hearing from the Holy Spirit while I worked on art with a talent he gave me. It was a great experience. I learned it doesn’t have to be perfect. The reason, the focus, and the whole point of my journaling bible was to have a deeper and more intimate experience with my Heavenly Father, My Creator. Most of all, I learned its not about perfection or the things I make but the quality time I spend as a form of worship while creating in time spent with Him.

And then, my very first entry;

What would I do different?

I thought I felt guilty at first for covering the pages. My initial thought and fear was confirmed by some people online who asked if I felt bad and made comments that they couldn’t and wouldn’t write on Gods words. Again, I prayed and felt in my heart that I wouldn’t intentionally hurt my Father. And then I was reminded condemnation doesn’t come from the Father but the enemy who comes to steal kill and destroy. He wants to destroy a good thing, a positive influence for other people, this message right now, and he fears that others might enjoy this same kind of prayer time and intimacy with The Father. Don’t listen to the negativity. Enjoy you time with God through your talents He has given you amd be close to Him.

I also keep a study bible I use only for my bible study which I keep a prayer journal with and I keep a small bible for underlining key verses that I carry to church and I have my art journaling bible which I don’t have to feel guilty for art as a form of worship. Enjoy freedom in your art worship and don’t allow the enemy to make you feel bad for enjoying your time with your Creator, the Father.

Revelation says those who read the book will receive a blessing. While reading this verse I could envision jewels. God has special things in store for those who stand firm in His word and walk by faith.

Begin Here Today; Part 3, Philippians study 

A study of Philippians; part 3: Philippians 3,4

 

Whatever were gains to me I now consider loss for the sake of Christ. 

Philippians 3:7

TRUTH

Paul persecuted Christians and enjoyed power as a ruthless man. After becoming aquatinted with Jesus and the Truth, peace and joy found in Christ alone his desires changed from worldly to eternal desires. What he once saw as gain he began to see as losses. 

  • After Paul experienced the joy and power from a relationship with Christ he wanted more. Joy comes from fellowship with knowing christ and spending time in His word. 

I want to know Christ -yes to know the power of His resurrection and persecution in His sufferings, becoming like Him in death. 

Philippians 3:10

  • I believe this is something we should all be seeking, to know the power in Christ. Truthfully, we are each drawn to this power like we are drawn to light. Christ is the very definition of love and we each yearn to be loved. The power we seek is in His love. 
  • What then keeps people from coming to Christ? Some worry they have too many sins or don’t want to give up their sins so they avoid knowing Christ. 

TRUTH

Christ wants us to come to him as we are with our sins and he will take care of us. He died for us and He will take our burdens away. A relationship with Christ will give you spiritual freedom and set you free from your burdens and your sins. This a is free effortless gift. You have done nothing to deserve it but because we have a Heavenly Father that loves us more than we deserve or can possibly comprehend all we have to do is accept this free gift. There is no amount of work we could ever do to earn it. It is free and nothing we can or ever will do will deserve what Christ has done for us. 

  
TO BE SET FREE

Put on the full armor of God, so that you can take a stand against the Devils schemes. For our struggle is not against flesh and blood but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this world, and against the spiritual forces of evil in heavenly realms. 

Ephesians 6:10-12 explains that we will be set free by putting on t he full armor of God. 

Paul experienced spiritual warfare and we still do today. There is great power in knowledge and knowledge is found in The Word. We must be equipped in this battle by putting on the full armor of God. 

THE FULL ARMOR OF GOD; weapons in spiritual warfare 

  • The belt of truth
  • Breastplate of righteousness
  • Feet ready with the gospel of peace
  • Shield of faith 
  • Helmet of salvation
  • The sword of the spirit

Do not be anxious about anything but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving present your requests to God. And in the peace of God, which transcends all understanding will guard your hearts and minds in Christ Jesus. 

Philippians 4:4-7

  • Being anxious shows lack of faith. In the same way our faith builds our spiritual strength and our ability to trust him our anxiety builds fear and gives power to the enemy. Be careful where you put your faith and guard your thoughts. 
  • Spending time in the word builds our faith. Spending time in worship grows our faith and allows things to happen in the spirit. Utilize these gifts and find spiritual freedom in the word and in Him. 
  • Spending time with God in His word and in worship brings peace and frees us from worry, anxiety, and fear (the enemy). 

I can do all things through Christ who gives me strength. 

Philippians 4:1

My God will meet all your needs according to the riches of his glory in Christ Jesus. 

Philippians 4:19

 

REMEMEBER 

So you shall know that I am the Lord your God. 

Joel 3:17

TRUTH

Knowing Him and spending time in his word builds faith. 

  • Knowing =Believing 
  • Believeing=Faith
  • Faith=Perseverance 
  • Perseverance=Power
  • Power=The Word
  • The Word=Christ
