What a great opportunity to end the summertime with a focus on being thankful. This months devotions are focused on being thankful in all things- when you are frustrated, sad, angry, happy, empty, filled and rejoicing!
"Rejoice in the Lord always. Again I say, rejoice! 5 Let everyone see your gentleness. The Lord is near! 6 Do not be anxious about anything. Instead, in every situation, through prayer and petition with thanksgiving, tell your requests to God. 7 And the peace of God that surpasses all understanding will guard your hearts and minds in Christ Jesus.
8 Finally, brothers and sisters, whatever is true, whatever is worthy of respect, whatever is just, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is commendable, if something is excellent or praiseworthy, think about these things. 9 And what you learned and received and heard and saw in me, do these things. And the God of peace will be with you." Philippians 4:4-9
Allowing God to guide me through the circumstances of my life, and pray and depend on Him to give me an attitude of thanksgiving in all things! I typed the lyrics to our song- I get on my knees from Jaci Velasquez and of course I used the His Kingdom Come Praise Him stencil.
My technique this week was to use CaranD'Ache Neocolor watersoluble crayons. I used them like crayons and then lots of water and it gives a watercolor effect. I sponged black gesso through the stencil.
Can you give thanks in all things?
