Journal Illustration: This I know, God is on My Side


This is a part of a page of my journal.  It speaks of the times when we pray for something and keep waiting for His answer which seems so long in coming.  What a lovely verse from Psalm 56 which says "Are my tears not stored in your vial, recorded in your book?"  Each tear we shed, collected and recorded by God.

The verse continues with hope and confidence, "This I know, God is on my side."  This I will quote to myself when things don't seem to be going the way I want them to.  God is on my side.

And my prayer for you, dear blog friends, "May God grant you what you have asked of him."1 Samuel 1:17

Thank you! Almot brought me to tears for you to pray that for me right now. It's exactly what the Lord has been encouraging me with all week. Thank you! And what a great picture!! I would love to share it on facebook! (Is there a way to have your name or blog on it?)

Thanks for linking up with Brag on God Friday.

Deanna said...

great drawing, such a lovely lady in the picture even with the truth of her tears.

I'm only just now beginning to apply the scriptures into my life as the bank of conifidence that Jesus has always it to be in my life ---and what a conquerer in Christ I'm beginning to witness. it's surely a baby step by baby step as I keep working at it. *How thankful that Jesus never gives up on us (me), He just never will -How thankful I am!*

This is a lovey post!! Thanks :O)

EVA said...

A beautiful and touching page.

Your drawings are so lovely. Each one must be a meditation as you work on it.

New End Studio said...

It's a beautiful painting and wonderful to be reminded of those words; tears and me are well acquainted.

I had a peek at some of your other posts and your atcs- very, very pretty.

For some reason, your comment is in my blog comments list, but not on the actual post. More strangeness from blogger, I suppose.

Maria Ontiveros said...

Beautiful. I'm learning how to use faces and painting in my art journal more and this is really helpful.

Beautiful portraiture, and what an important reminder for all of us! Thank you for sharing!

Rhoda said...

That is a great encouraging reminder - thank you! It reminds me of the song, 'This I know, my God is for me, this I know'. Sometimes we can get discouraged, but to remember God is for us and on our side makes everything else seems much less significant!
