Stand Firm

Hello Creative Worship friends!  Cathy here to share some Pages I've been working on in my Journaling Bible using the new Note This stamp set and others in the Creative Worship line at SNSS.  Have you ever noticed how sometimes we can't choose our battles.  The enemy of our souls brings the battle to us.  We can either give in or hold onto the word of God!  Listen to these words in Psalm 119:49-50:

"Remember the word to your servant, 
Upon which You have caused me to hope.  
This is my comfort in my affliction, 
For Your word has given me life."

Along with the promise comes the battle.  Are we willing to stand for God when the going gets rough?  Watch, stand firm in the faith, and be brave.  Cleave to the sword which is the word of God.  The enemy cannot steal our HOPE!  As we stand firm upon the word of God, He will bring the victory.  Hallelujah!

Tombow markers were scribbled on a piece of acetate, spritzed with water, and  smooshed onto the Bible page which was prepped with two coats of Liquitex Gel Mat Medium.  The list of the stamp sets used will be linked below.  Different inks and markers were used to color in some of the elements.  A White Sharpie Paint Pen was used to add accents to some of the letters.

Here is another page using Note This that was posted after Easter on the SNSS Facebook Page.  Jesus laid down His life so we could live.  Some think there are many roads that lead to heaven, but Jesus clearly said in His word,
"I am the way, the truth, and the life!  No one comes to the Father except through Me."  
He is the only way!

This page was also prepped with Liquitex Gel Mat Medium.  Heavy body acrylic paints were applied to acrylic blocks, spritzed with water and stamped onto the page to create the background.  Each color was dried before the next color was added in overlapping layers.

Here are the stamp sets at the Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps Store used to make these pages:

I hope you've been encouraged today…remember to get into the word and let the word get into you!  Have a wonderful Friday and a blessed weekend!
