Draw near to God

Draw near to God and He will draw near to you.

When I heard this message I immediately thought of this image from Krista Hamrick. It shows so much love and the message in the bible shows that too (James 4). There are many things we (can) do wrong. But when we draw near to God, He will draw near to us. When we humble ourselves before the Lord, He will lift us up. God is so gracious, He still wants to heal us if we only draw near to Him.

So I want to draw near to God, to be in His presence, so that He can do His works through me.


For this page I used:
  • My Comforter 
  • Outline Alpha
  • Black ink
  • Clear gesso to prepare the page
  • Soft pastels for the background
  • Spray fixative
  • Colored pencils for the images
- Lucinde


  1. Absolutely beautiful, Lucinde! Love your coloring and the background is fabulous. I also really like your Bible with that extra wide margin in the middle. It seems like the artwork can connect more directly with the specific scripture than other Journaling Bible formats. it!

    1. Thank you! I love the wide margins too :D There's a new Dutch journaling bible, but it's a lot smaller and I think I would miss these larger pages. Even though the paper is of a much better quality in the newer one.
