Beautiful and SO FULL, isn't it!

I've thought of having that painted on my wall.

Thank you for sharing!

What a beautiful illustration to go along with the Word that is alive.

Nancy said...

Methinks you drew the Dawn Treader! You're so cool.

Leslie said...

I have those very verses underlined in my Bible. But they don't have those cool drawings next to them : )

Thanks for the reminder that He is our safe haven.

Thanks, also, for your concern about my health. I'm still having problems - had my bloodwork yesterday, so we'll see what that says. By faith, He is with me. He is my safe haven...

I love your drawing. So amazing. When I clicked on the photo, I got the dreaded red X so i couldn't read the words, but I love the peek into your journal...

Stillness! It continues to seem to be the most important lesson in my life, over and over and over again!

Jodi said...

Thanks everyone for your kind words. This has been a favorite scripture of mine lately. Quite soothing in difficult times.

Ok, this is totally cool and creative. I love your illustrations -- and I loved clicking for an up-close look at your art and ponderings. Nicely done.

I love the song "Be still and know that I am God". Thanks for the reminder about stillness...

Very beautiful. I had a long comment yesterday but could not get it accepted for some reason.

I like this translation and love your art.

Jodi said...

Thank you, Kristi. Sorry that you had trouble with the earlier one. I love long comments :)

You are a dear soul, so wise and full of grace, your journal and art are beautiful and a strong testament to who you are.
a beautiful scripture too, for when in moments when we are in troubled waters, as now in our global economy & health of our planet-- a Sophoclean irony -- what do we say do we pray? will our prayers be answered? I believe God has a use for use even if it happens that what he asks of us doesn't suit us in the moment.
smiles,
joanny
