One of our girls has been struggling with her thoughts… especially when lying in bed. She thinks & thinks & thinks on the wrongs she has done, as well as on any bad dreams that she’s had. The tears come pouring down her face as fear, sadness, & despair seek to take a hold of her!
Many heart to heart conversations are cherished, as I continually grapple with painting a picture of God’s amazing forgiveness & grace into her little mind! I seek to pour truth & goodness & beauty & love into her soul (& into the souls of each one of our children)!
One day, not too many days ago, when the tears had been constant, I found this sweet little note (along with a beautiful smile) written by my precious girl…
“Mommy, I know I have been sad lately.
When I am sad, I will remember
‘Look to the Lord and his strength- seek his face always’.
I love you!”
Tears burned my eyes, as those words were quoted right from one of my very favorite verses… one that I have been clinging to these past months… one that I have been praying over my children… one that we painted on a canvas not that long ago.
I am so blessed that God used that simple art project to impress His Words into the heart of my little girl! And now, it will always be a favorite!
Here’s how you can make your own Scripture Art…
*Cut out letters from contact paper (I first printed mine off of the computer… then cut them out… but LETTER STICKERS would be much easier & faster)!
*Stick letters on canvas!
*Paint… right over the letters! (We used all of the colors of the rainbow at the same time in this one- with regular finger-paint… we tried other combinations of colors for others that we gave away as gifts, & they all turned out beautifully!)
*Add another layer of colors and/or put on extra handprints or baby footprints if desired!
*When dry, peel off the letter stickers!
Now you have beautiful Scripture Art!
How do you impress God’s Words into the hearts of your children?
