Trust revisited---again and again...

As you know, I do love this Scripture, and as I said before it's one of the few that I have memorized. Sometimes when the calligraphy bug is biting and I sit down to practice I just start writing this verse. There are others too..."the joy of the LORD is your strength","create in me a clean heart..." And if it works then I scan it, save it, and use it.  This is actually a background that I did many months ago in Julie Prichard's Layer Love class and decided to pull it out and add something to it. It was rather plain before but had some neat textures.
So another...

I so enjoy your work. My favourites are:
Seek ye first the kingdom of heaven and all these things will be added unto you.
Always a promise that if we serve the Lord He really will provide.
Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding...is another of my favourites.

Caryl said...

Did you use white gouche for the lettering?

Createology said...

Not only the scripture but the dreamy colors (my favorites!) can take away any stress there may be. Thank you for inspiring my soul.

...and it is BEAUTIFUL! The mysterious and lovely background goes so well with that verse. Many times the path in front of us looks a bit overwhelmingly mysterious but all at the same time exciting too!
