Glory Art Rewind 2018 - #4 - Religion

Please visit the blog of  Patter Cross HERE as she is the one who hosts this challenge and shares some very encouraging and inspiring teaching each month.

Each month this year I am trying to find a scriptural song to go with the theme/word that Patter shares and I so enjoyed discovering the song "Rescuer" which I have used on my little pieces of digital artwork this month. I will share a link to the song:

Glory Art Rewind 2018 #2 - Compasion

This challenge is hosted by Patter Cross and she shares some great teaching so if you have not already done so please visit her blog HERE

The timing for Patter's teaching was perfect for this as my husband and I have recently changes where we worship on Sunday. We realised we were just "warming seats" on Sundays and now we are worshipping with people who are on fire for  reaching out to the lost in love and compassion.

Here is my artwork for the challenge:

Glory Art Rewind 2018 - #1-Example

This year Patter has decided to revisit some of her challenges from past years and share again those thoughts and add more teaching to them.
For the first for this year she chose the word "Example" and you can read her teaching HERE

This year for my art I going to do some hybrid ATCs - front and backs and display them on the stand I bought and used for the very first Scripture Challenges I took part in with Patter back in 2008 - wow!  that is 10 years ago. Where has that time gone?

On this first ones I used my rubber stamps just lightly using Versamark stamp pad. I like to dig out my old stamps and make use of them.
The song I found to share on the back of the ATC is one I had not heard of before and I really like the words. I will share a link to the Youtube video and if I can I will also share the words.

Here is photographs of my ATCs for this first challenge of the year:
For my digital art I used a paper by Kim Jensen and splatters by Tangie Baxter.

"Jesus To The World"

A little girl who is hungry
Prays for something she can eat
A single mom doing all she can
Finds herself out on the street
Will we see their need and hear their cries
Look at our watch and just walk on by
Or will we stop and take the time
To be Jesus in their lives

[Chorus:]
We need to be lambs that roar
We need to be eagles that soar
We need to be salt
We need to be light
We need to be Jesus to the world
We need to take love into the streets
Be willing to turn the other cheek
We need to be strong
We need to be weak
We need to be Jesus
Jesus to the world

Jesus came with a message
That would change the way we live
He showed us all by example
What the heart of heaven is
He saw our need and He heard our cry
He loved us so much that He gave His life
He taught us by his sacrifice
How we should live our lives

[repeat chorus]

We need to be Jesus
Jesus to the world

Glory Art 2017 #11 - Broken

If you have not already visited Patter's blog  HERE , please do so as her teaching for this challenge was so well timed for myself . I was feeling a little brokenhearted at the time and Patter's words of wisdom really helped pick me up.

Here is my digital art and I chose a scripture from The Message as I really liked how it is worded:

Glory Art Scripture Challenge 2017 #10 - Relationship

Please visit Patter's Blog HERE  so you can read her teaching on the theme she chose for this challenge.

When I went to Gateway website I discovered the verse I have used on my digital art and wanted to use it as I felt I needed to think about my relationships with those whom I come in contact with.
Jesus set us the example of how we are to relate to others. Do I really practise the "mindset of Jesus"? my honest answer is NO.  So often I get caught up in the trap of "gossip".

How can I have the mindset of Jesus that I so badly need? The only way I can is to get to know Him better and to do that I need to grow closer to Him in reading and meditating on His word.

For my digital art I used a kit called Connect by Dawn Inskip and the Stick figures from from a set of Stick People by Dawn Inskip with a style by Sahin Designs added to it.
