Love and Forgiveness: Prayer Journal Illustration


Here is an illustration from my prayer journal, as I reflected on Psalm 103 and the Parable of the Prodigal Son.  Here is a Father who loves his child so lavishly that sin and ungratefulness cannot lessen this love - boundless, forever, unconditional love.  This is the love that God has for you and me.  My weaknesses, failures and disobedience cannot lessen this great love.  This is the kind of love I want to grow in.

Even when I am unfaithful and disobedient, with every step I take to return to God, He hurries to meet me with great joy, just like the Father in this parable.  Thank you, Lord!

I'm sharing this in Paint Party FridayStudio Sneak PeekFaith Filled Friday, and Heartprint Hallelujahs.

Your journal pages are so beautiful in style and in their meaning. Very nice!

That's beautiful, Peggy. Your wonderful drawing reminds me of Rembrandt's famous painting of the Prodigal Son, which always makes me want to cry, the way it expresses the Father's love for his son.

There are so many lessons to be learnt from that parable.

Thank you for your lovely comment on my blog, and I'm so glad you like my new backgrounds! Great fun and really easy to do! Now I've got to find some uses for them! I hope lots of people will download and enjoy them too.

Nati said...

Hola, que pasada de espacio, me ha gustado un montón y he decidido quedarme, de hecho, me voy a quedar un rato disfrutando de tus cosas, gracias por compartirlas y animo para que sigas en esta locura llamada Internet, es genial.
Yo tengo un blog de cuentos, soy una aprendiz de escritora, quizás algún día lo consiga, mientras tanto, si te apetece leer algo divertido, magico, triste en ocasiones...
Pues si compromiso, tienes las puertas de mi casa abierta.
Hasta pronto besos Nati.
