KEY PRAYER VERSE: Psalm 19:14
READING: John 14:15 - 16:15, Romans 12

CREATE IT // Psalm 19:14 Bible Journaling Page

20190419_135143.jpg

For this weeks CREATE IT, I used the prayer verse art print for Psalm 19 and the watercolors. As we talk about being transformed by the Spirit, it seemed fit to highlight our prayer verse, Psalm 19:14 - a prayer for the words of our months and meditations of our hearts would be acceptable in God's sight.

I used the art print from the kit to make a bible journal page for it. The flowers at the bottom were used as a template to trace them on to the bottom my bible page and then watercolor over.

 Simply water coloring, cutting and pasting it together.

CREATE IT // Genesis Bible Journal Page

genesis ig.jpg

Last week as we covered Genesis, I put together this page from the die cuts I had water colored. I also used the watercolors to add some color to the page itself.

It is a very simple layout but the die cuts add some texture and clean lines to the page, which I love.

CREATE IT // Painting Die Cuts

How have you used the creation die cuts in the Creating a Foundation Study? 

As we study Genesis 1-3 this week, we see God creating the world and everything in it. Light. Darkness. Animals. Trees and plants. Adam and Eve. God set so many things in motion. Our CREATE IT this week uses the creation die cuts. They are perfect to color or watercolor and would look beautiful on a bible journal layout (stay tuned).

I love being able to to include my kiddos in bible study and teaching, especially when creating is involved, so this week I added a few of their creations from the die cuts. Do you ever invite you kiddos to be apart? 

Here is a quick film of my daughter, who loves everything creating and video related, painting the light. To say she was beyond the moon to be filmed is understatement.

My five year old son wanted in on the creation painting, as well, so here are his clouds and few fun animal in his gold / brown boyish color scheme ;)

A few of my pieces I watercolored for my Genesis bible page, coming soon.

When we make a decision to follow Jesus, we enter into a relationship with Him. Building a relationship takes time. This week we study prayer, knowing God’s heart through reading scripture and hearing His voice above everything else.

TOPIC: Creating A Foundation
KEY PRAYER VERSE: Psalm 19:14
READING: Acts 16: 6-10; Joel 2:28-29 (ref. Acts 2:17-18)


CREATING A FOUNDATION - Week 1 // Inspire Weekly

Starting a new series on Creating a Foundation, we discuss what creating a foundation entails and why it is important in our relationship with God and how hearing God plays into that.

Dive Deeper: 
1. Are you aware of any walls that have been built in your life? Are there past experiences that caused a need for a wall?

2. What practical steps can be taken to break them down in order to live in freedom? Take time to pray and listen to the Lord about any walls that are currently up. This may be what you would like to pray through the healing prayer. Download the Healing Prayer from our free resource page here.

CREATE IT // Painting Die Cuts

20190328_100543.jpg

Have you had a chance to try out our new primary plus watercolor set? ⠀

They are smooth and full of color because they are made with natural pigments and ingredients. No fillers or harsh chemicals. ⠀

As I was creating these kits and was looking for paints that fit for painting through the Healing Prayer, my search came out flat, so with the help of my sister and mama we set out to experiment in making some. It was fun and colorful time and I love how they came out.

Here is a quick film of how they paint and their colors.

They work great in your bible journaling pages - I use Gesso before painting - and to paint the die cuts.

OTHER RESOURCES // Healing Prayer How to Guide

Think about a date with God, taking time to sit and listen. As we get to know the voice of the Holy Spirit clearly, like knowing when our spouse or loved one is on the other end of the phone, we are able hear God’s voice over lies that we have believed.

Walking through five questions, we take time to ask God to bring healing to our hearts, mind and bodies.
