I love when this happens. Some would call it serendipity - making happy discoveries by accident. Now I know this has happened in my art. Some journal page or painting that started out one way turned out differently because I screwed up on it, but it turned out that I liked it. A happy accident.
But sometimes it is something different. Sometimes I know I am being guided by my Father. You have seen this journal page before, minus the journaling. In my reading this morning I came across a familiar scripture but felt the nudge to record it. I first tried it on another journal page and the pen would not write correctly. Then I tried it on another - nope wouldn't work there either. Then I landed on this page ready and waiting for this passage. When I added these images a few weeks ago I did not know where it was going, I just liked the images and words.
The passage reads - Take your everyday, ordinary life - your sleeping, eating, going-to-work and walking around life - and place it before God as an offering. Embracing what God does for you is the best thing you can do for him....
And - fix your attention on God. You'll be changed from the inside out. (Romans 12:1-2)
And when I/we do this, God changes our hearts. He changes my/our desires into his. In the changing we become people that bubble up and over with God's love.
Father I want to bubble up and over!!!!!
I am leaving today for a weekend in the mountains with my share group. I'll see you on Monday. Have a marvelous weekend.
Grace and Peace
