Rejoice in the Lord always; again I will say, rejoice. Let your reasonableness be known to everyone. The Lord is at hand; do not be anxious about anything, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God. And the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.
Finally, brothers, whatever is true, whatever is honorable, whatever is just, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is commendable, if there is any excellence, if there is anything worthy of praise, think about these things. What you have learned and received and heard and seen in me—practice these things, and the God of peace will be with you.
– Philippians 4:4-9.
I did a journal on this passage last year and today I read this passage again, I learned more things from God. Yes, He can speak again to me, teach me His truth and reveal who He is to me from the very same passage. I learn today that do not skip the portion you have read because God might wanna teach you something new of Him & His commands for us to live.
On the page, I used Gelatos sticks to highlight the verses and added some water for watercolor effect. Oh please be careful with adding water on Bible pages, do not too much coz it will wrinkle your page, I dubbed the extra water off the page using paper towel. Using Gelato for the first time got me nervous to add it on my page but after seeing the result, I love Gelato! 🙂
On a piece of watercolor paper and using watercolor paint, I wrote the title of journal. I love using Aqua brushes, they are so easy to use. And then I added some of the Pearl Watercolor paints all over the page and on the title to give some glittery looking. When it’s completely dry, I wrote the journal using Fine Tip Sharpie.
Then last step I added the watercolor journaling card on the page using washi tape at the top of the journaling card so that I can still read the verses.
Thankful for the Illustrated Faith 2: Faith and Strength class and the instructor at Big Picture Classes. It’s a blessing for me to learn and dig deeper in this way.
