Church notes

Supernatural Blessings…

Writing from church in my moleskine. I actually write this last year but I’m just now posting it. I took notes from my most favorite all time pastor, Pastor Al and church at Living Word Outreach Ministries.

The world needs more

More Of Him

Seven is a perfect number. The Bible uses the number seven numerous times through the Bible. It is Gods number and God is perfect.

Daughter of a King

Ladies, we were made for so much more. We were born into royalty. Our father is a king. By birthright you have infinite power and wisdom beyond comprehension. Remember this always and lean on his understanding and not your own.

If our eyes saw souls.

Standard

If only our eyes saw souls instead of bodies, how very different our ideals of humanity would be.

Devotion

Standard

We can’t fully devote our hearts to God and keep our mind and body for our own purposes and desires. Sometimes I enjoy using my art journal as a journal to document my faith and stages or seasons in my walk.

Therapy in Art

Standard

Journaling and doodling coloring pages is my therapy. I started doodling to find relief from chronic pain after cancer treatments. I found great relief. It took my focus off the pain and on something more positive. I started turning my art into coloring pages for others who need therapy.

I always loved writing in journals. I kept a journal of documented miracles and revelations from my bible studies. The real fun was found when I bought my first moleskine. I fell in love with the quality of the journal and thickness of the pages. I love books. I love to flip through a book and the smell of the pages. A bookstore is absolutely one of my favorite places to be for that reason and especially one with a coffee shop and the aromas of coffee brewing. Beginning an art journal soon became my new addiction. I fell in love with keeping a journal and documenting memories. I started going to therapy this year to help cope with the anxiety and depression that come with chronic pain after cancer treatments. Yes I said it, and I’m not ashamed either. A lot of people have anxiety and or depression and denying it makes it worse. My therapist encourages my art therapy through positive journaling. Ive started keeping positive quotes and uplifting stories in my art journals. I’ve found this to be most therapeutic and hope to bless and inspire others with my journals. I’ve saved each one full of my art, special memories with my daughter and other children when they visited and trips and dates with my husband. One day long after I’m gone these will become my daughters treasures. An art journal is something I would love to inherit from my mom. My daughter and I share a love for art and have a special bond. I know one day she will be so happy to inherit these journals and flip through the pages and see the detailed art and memories. If you create in a journal, what do you do with it when your done? Do you have plans for your journals? Do you keep detailed personal memories?

Travelers notebook insert

Standard

I needed a simple way to organize my stamps and a simple way to carry them with me when I travel for journaling. I created an insert for my midori travelers notebook from envelopes and vellum papers. I glued the envelopes back to back and used a simple envelope template to make the miniature vellum envelopes for organizing my stamps. It’s simple and inexpensive and works well inside my travelers notebook. I couldn’t find what I wanted so I made it. I’ve also made another insert to hold my magazine clippings. Well be traveling more this year so it was important to me to have something small and easy to take with us.

Look for the good in people.

Standard

There’s plenty of opportunities to look for good in people. It’s much better to see people as people, accept we are all flawed, and look for positive qualities. In turn you will begin to feel more positive and spread positive vibes. People are drawn to other positive people. Do not worry about anything, instead pray about everything. Phil. 4:6

Writing is therapy

Standard

On days with pain I love to spend time in our local coffee shop and add collage art and write in my art journal. The best therapy happens with my beats, Mozart, and a tasty frappe. Sometimes my best thoughts and quotes come from these times of writing and creating. What’s your favorite thing to do that helps release stress or pain?

Wisdom

Standard
Wisdom

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.

2 Cup Mondays

2 cup Mondays

We all face the same daily struggles with the same enemy. His approach may vary depending on the person, genetics, personality, faith, or lack of but we all face the same devil, just different demons.

Isn’t it a good thing we have Jesus who conquered that crafty enemy. I like to say the Jesus in me is stronger than he who is roaming the earth looking for someone to devour. Honestly, with faith, wisdom, and eyes wide open and two cups of coffee is a cure for Mondays.

My First Journal Entries

Standard

What did I learn from my first bible journal experience?

a9abab3b40e4edc06c5974f3b201b818

 

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;

07fc44dc2b70d24a8b7651a2b621c8be

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.
