Creative Worship

Hello All!

We are heading into the weekend and I am going to  be having another wild Friday night- at home crafting, lol!
I have started Bible Art Journaling or Creative Worship as it is also called.  I have been wanting to start this for a long time but had every excuse in the book not to.  Which makes the page I did today very significant.

I listened to a powerful sermon the other week about resistance- that which keeps us from all that God has for us.  Most of the resistance comes from within, as illustrated in Exodus 3 when God reveals Himself to Moses in the burning bush.  God told Moses what he had planned for the nation of Isreal through Moses.  Moses, being just as I would have been in that scenario, came up with excuses 5 times before resigning himself to following God.
Moses felt he was not good enough, worried that God's plan would not work, didn't think he was eloquent enough in speech and flat out asked to not go.
I ask myself how many times I do this?
Why me?
I'm not good at that.
I don't have time.
I'm afraid to speak in front of people.
I don't know anything about it.
I'm not doing it, God.
I'd rather be doing something else.
God let Moses know in no uncertain terms that He had everything under control.  He let him know that He is 'I Am'.
I need to trust who God says I am. 
I am who I Am says I am.
Throw out all of those lies in your head that are on repeat and believe who God says YOU are!

I used both Kuretake Gansai Tambi watercolors and Lyra Aquacolor Crayons to make my flames.  As this page was already illustrated with Exodus 3:14, I used Liquitex  gesso to white out the verse reference and added the words 'says I am' along the side of the page.  The word 'says' was done with the Script Alphas from Sweet n Sassy Stamps.

That's it for me.  If you have made it this far, thank you!  I know this is not my typical post.

Have a blessed weekend!
