Day 22: Song of Solomon

Hello Day 22: Song of Solomon -MARRIAGE
So it has been forever since i did this it feels like. I guess i took a break i just didn't want to overwhelm my self, because this should be something i enjoy and i didn't want to make in UN enjoyable. So now that i am some what less busy ha. Well i don't want you all to think just because i stopped this i stopped my quiet time because that is not true i absolutely have fallen in love with my quiet time every morning i love having that time to pray and read my bible it helps me so much get through each day. By the way i miss spell so many words so i apologize for that, but you probably know what i am trying to say. Well to get back to Song of Solomon, i used the word marriage because i think that describes it. It talks about love and how married love is the best and beautifulest love!

Song of Solomon 8:7
Many waters cannot quench love,
nor can rivers drown it.
If a man tried to buy love
with all his wealth,
his offer would be utterly scorned.

Day 21: Ecclesiastes

Hello Day 21: Ecclesiastes -STRIVE
Hey everyone! So i hope you are all having great weeks and i know i am excited for the weekend and i bet you all are as well. I hope you all have great weekends :) Well i will be gone for a couple of days and most likely will not post but i will catch up when i get back. Anyways so for Ecclesiastes its kinda a bunch of sad comments from King Solomon. At first it is pretty sad because of all the wisdom God blessed him with then he arrives to one conclusion that life is meaningless. But there are actually a bunch of good stuff in Ecclesiastes and its a pretty good i think. So i would recommend it because it is really short and great. So for today's word i wrote strive because that's the word used to describe Ecclesiastes 3:12 in today's art. So i think that i need to strive to do good in life, not just in what i want but what i don't want to do. I really just want to strive to do good in all things from art which i love to math which i dislike very very much ha ha. Because we only have one life so we need to live it to the fullest for God.

Ecclesiastes 3:12
So I concluded there is nothing better than to be happy and enjoy ourselves as long as we can.

Day 20: Proverbs

Hello Day 20: Proverbs -COMMIT
So sorry i am behind but i am just going to post both of them today. So the verse i focused on was proverbs 16:3 it was actually the first verse i memorized so its kinda special to me. I used the word commit because it is in the verse and i think we need to commit all of our selfs to God. We can't just commit the parts we want and keep what we want. We have to truly commit all of our selfs to God. Talking about commitment, today at school my art teacher showed me this Christian college and when i saw it i instantly fell in love. Well i have been wanting to go to NYC for college before i was a Christian, but maybe thats not where God wants me maybe thats just where i wanted myself. I have never wanted to go to any other college people try to suggest to me, but this one was different, i actually wanted to go to this college maybe even more than NYC. So thats just kinda on my mind right now and i am just committing all of myself to God and trust Him everywhere Her leads me.

Proverbs 16:3
Commit to the LORD whatever you do,
and your plans will succeed.

Day 19: Psalms

Hello Day 19: Psalms -REFUGE
Hey everyone, i really hope your weeks are going great so far! So when i got to this book of the bible i was like wow I'm already in the center of the bible pretty much, but i still have more books to do. But i thought it was pretty exciting. Then there is so much i could say through Psalms and then when i was reading "God is our refuge and strength, always ready to help in times of trouble." I was like ah that's so true everyday when i read something new in the bible it really excites me because it all makes so much since and i just love reading more in the bible everyday! Refuge is like our place to go and get away and that is how it is when i do my quite time i just get to get away from all the distractions and i love having that refuge away everyday. Also at my church the Wednesday nights for the student ministries are called refuge because its our escape from everything and we can just focus on God.

Psalm 46:1
God is our refuge and strength,
always ready to help in times of trouble.

Day 18: Job

Hello Day 18: Job -HANDMADE
So when i was going to Job today to read i instantly saw this " You formed me with your hands; you made me" then i decided to just start reading from there. Job keeps praying to God about so many different things with his life and it was speaking to me about prayer and how it needs to be constantly in my life and i just want to praise God for everything because he handmade us and chooses everything about us. God knows every flaw in me and every great thing about me. I really want to keep praying more and more and more because its one of the best ways i can talk to God. So i had a prayer journal for a while then i stopped using it and i decided to start to write back in it because when i was reading the things i wrote i loved being able to look back and see what happen then or what i prayed about and what was the outcome. It was pretty amazing and i would definitely recommend one to everyone. Its kinda crazy how i can read something in the bible and it can hit me in so many different ways. I would have to say that's pretty amazing!

Job 10:8a
"'You formed me with your hands; you made me,"

Day 17: Esther

Hello Day 17: Esther -BEAUTY
I choose to draw a quick sketch of a womens face because when i think of Esther i picture this beautiful women, not so sure if my picture is that beautiful, i had to do it quick. So the word i choose was beauty because i think Esther was beautiful in so many different ways on the inside and out with her Godly spirit, strength and obedience. I think the main think that this book is saying to me is about literally everything happens for a reason, God had it planed He put you in that situation for you to make the change not for you to sit there. I really want to change my attitude toward certain situations because I know everything is all apart of God's glorious plans and i want to be positive about them all.

Esther 2:15
Now when the time came for Esther to go to the king, she asked for nothing other than what Hegai, the king's eunuch who was in charge of the harem, suggested.

Day 16: Nehemiah

Hello Day 16: Nehemiah -LIVE
In todays book Nehemiah really stayed true to God. He prayed about a lot of things and he new how important is was to stay true to God each day with his prayers. So todays is really short but i just need to live my life for God. Thats why todays word is live because we should live our life for God and always be true and faithful to Him as He is to us.

Nehemiah 1:4-7

4 When I heard this, I sat down and wept. In fact, for days I mourned, fasted, and prayed to the God of heaven. 5 Then I said,

“O Lord, God of heaven, the great and awesome God who keeps his covenant of unfailing love with those who love him and obey his commands, 6 listen to my prayer! Look down and see me praying night and day for your people Israel. I confess that we have sinned against you. Yes, even my own family and I have sinned! 7 We have sinned terribly by not obeying the commands, decrees, and regulations that you gave us through your servant Moses.

Day 15: Ezra

Hello Day 15: Ezra -ENDURES
So today i got out my mom's old type writer, which was actually really fun to play with. but boy am i thankful for computers, because as you can tell i spelled endures as emdures because there is no back space it is just start all over. It really makes me thankful for all this technology i have to use and the amazingness of backspace and spell check! In this verse the people were praising the Lord because the foundation for the temple had been laid and it made me think of how the typewriter was the foundation for the computer so that's why i used it to show today's art. Also when i write each day its really not the greatest and I'm sorry for all who just want to read, but its more about the art each day relating through the bible and i really want people to be-able to connect through that because i am not the greatest writer ever. The reason i write is to just give an explanation to you. I really hope you all are enjoying this and relating to the art and the message of God. Thanks so much for keeping up :)

Ezra 3:11
With praise and thanks, they sang this song to the LORD: "He is so good! His faithful love for Israel endures forever!" Then all the people gave a great shout, praising the LORD because the foundation of the LORD's Temple had been laid.
