But it is a challenge as well to find the time to do it. Sometimes I don't get to finish the page in the morning and have go back to it after I get back from work. Sometimes I have to continue the following day adding whatever I want in the previous days' pages. But it is a good challenge because I get to do art everyday!
Here are some illustrations from my prayer journal, with verses from the first book of Samuel. In this book, Hannah prayed for a son and she waited a long time before her prayer was answered. When she finally had a son (Samuel) this is what she said...
Together, with Hannah, "My heart exults in the Lord. I rejoice in my victory". 1 Samuel 2:1
When Samuel was a boy, he heard his name being called and although he did not recognize the Lord's voice, he obeyed what Eli the priest told him to say...
Although there have been times when I have been certain of God's direction for me, I'm sure there have been many times when the Lord has called me and I didn't recognize his voice. But I continue to try to listen and grow in recognizing his voice. I continue to say, "Speak, Lord, your servant is listening". 1 Samuel 3:9
