I finished this painting this weekend. I couldn’t have explained it at the time, but it has huge significance to me today.

the voices of my past, voices of lies, voices of disbelief sometimes completely overwhelm me.

sometimes i find it’s hard to believe. to believe that anything good could happen in a situation. to believe that God could use my past. what i’ve done. what’s been done to me. what’s been done to the people i love.

then i remember one of my most favorite verses:

He says, Look. Look with you’re eyes wide open at everything that God has done. Wonder. Be amazed. Be filled with Awe. Our God is big. BIG. He’s reminding me that he’s bigger than all of the things that amaze us.

Then  i remember that God’s in control. HE PROMISES that HE is working. That he is doing a work in my days {in OUR days} that we would not believe even if he’d told us he was going to do it!  He’s bigger than anything and everything that we face.

and all we have to do is

    Kim, This is so beautiful… EVERY time I hear this verse I think of you dear. Ever since you shared this verse with me all those years ago it has been one of my favorites and verse that is so close to my heart. I miss you and thank you for sharing such a beautiful piece of your heart.

    Yes HE is, I can testify to that. My husband just got a job after being unemployed for 4 months and we made it through!!! To God be the glory! We didn’t lose our house, our mortgage was paid, we continued to live as nothing changed. It was if God surrounded us in a bubble so no fiery dart could hit us. He is faithful!!

    Found you through the Stretching Within Workshop, love the painting up above!

    Great post and beautiful art! (Just getting caught up on some of my reading!) Have heard that same sentiment other places, lately – God is obviously trying to tell me something.
