God keeps His promises. ALWAYS.
“Promises” is our TMD theme for September.
When I think of God’s promises, I think of something old and time-worn, but still as strong and sturdy as the day it was first made. A Foundation to my faith.
To me the entire Bible is a book chock-full of promise from cover to cover:
- Man will crush the evil one’s head
- God will never destroy the Earth by flood again
- A land flowing with milk and honey
- Whoever believes in God’s Son will have eternal life
- Jesus will return
- God will triumph over evil once and for all.
From rainbows and pillars of cloud and fire to golden bowls and horsemen, God set out these foundation promises centuries ago. Yet they are just as current and relevant to us today.
Why did He give us these promises? Our verse this week explain– “His power has given us Everything we need for life and godliness.” 2 Peter 3:4
My chosen art theme this month builds on my “time-worn” concept. The background was packing material included in a recent delivery box. I used brick scrapbook paper for “foudation,” Tim Holtz’s “Found Relatives” photos and my “Java Spills” stamps alongside some other scrapbook papers and washi tape I had. (I’m using up crafting supplies on hand since I’ve vowed no new purchases for 3 months.)
I crumpled the packing paper before attaching into my journal with matte medium. Then I layered the papers and washi and topped off with the photo.
On my theme page, the number included a “9” for September; the photo of the children because kids are our greatest promise.
On this week’s page, I used “110” for week 1 of the month. The photo woman is “equipped for weather.”
I’ve included a splash of color, using circles I made with Mary Brack’s tutorial to represent promises. God’s promises brighten any circumstance! You can find her tutorial here.
