Title: Wood You Trust Him?
Materials: Paint and Wood
Description: Many people go through trials unseen by others. Perhaps like me, you place all the burdens on yourself through tough times. You forget you are not in it alone.
Trust in His will and who He is. Trust me, things will turn out way better.
I used wood (to inscribe the words on) because I love the idea of taking something so ordinary and making it extraordinary – just like what God does with us, and our situations.
God never changes, regardless of how our environment does. He’s always good and He always cares. We can rest assure in this certainty.
“Jesus Christ is the same yesterday and today and forever.” (Hebrews 13:8)
Because of His death, he has broken the enmity between Jews and Gentiles, and between God and man. We’ve been reconciled to God Himself. Christ is our only peace.
“For he himself is our peace, who has made the two groups one and has destroyed the barrier, the dividing wall of hostility, by setting aside in his flesh the law with its commands and regulations. His purpose was to create in himself one new humanity out of the two, thus making peace, and in one body to reconcile both of them to God through the cross, by which he put to death their hostility.” (Ephesians 2:14)
The more we deny ourselves, the more God reigns in our hearts. Let’s be living testimonies to show forth His love and grace, so that others might come to know and trust in our Almighty God.
“ He must become greater; I must become less.” (John 3:30)
If God can do wonders with our little faith, think of how much more He can do through us if we keep growing in our faith.
“faith as small as a mustard seed, you can say to this mountain. ‘Move from here to there,’ and it will move.” (Matthew 17:20)

Ever since I could remember, I have always only wanted to be an artist. My love of art started with drawing people. This then turned into a desire to communicate through my artwork which eventually led to me dabbling in typography and calligraphy.
In life, comparison has been a biggie. I’ve had to learn the difference between inspiration and jealousy. Inspiration helps motivate and grow whereas jealousy creates bitterness and keeps me in the same spot. I’m striving to learn to appreciate without feeling the need to obtain.
With this passion for art and determination to learn, I’m trying to honor God by using them for Him.
