Scripture Challenge with Patter Cross - # 20 - Content

This fortnight Patter has given us the word "Content" to use on our artwork.
Patter had used this scripture on her artwork but I just could not go past using it myself.
It is not an easy scripture to be consistent in our lives with. The love of money is not the difficult part - it is the being content with what we have.
So often we look at something in a shop and say " I need that" when in reality we should say " I want that".

The last part of the scripture is a wonderful promise to take hold on. It is so comforting to know that our Lord God will never leave us. We may walk away from Him but he will never leave us.

This time for my digital artwork I used a kit which is called "Tranquility" by Digi Illusions ( it is available from Nuts 4 Digi ).
I felt the name of this kit really suited the word "content".

Scripture Challenge with Patter Cross - # 19 PRIORITY

This fortnight Patter has given us the word "Priority" for our scripture artwork. The word "priority" is not found in any version of the Bible so I chose a scripture that tells us what our PRIORITY in life should be. I know that I fail at carrying out this and put other things before God a lot of the time. The Bible tells us that whatever or whoever comes before God in our lives is who/what we worship - an idol. I am determined to put aside the "idols" in my life and worship the true living God. I will strive to put God first - seek first His Kingdom.

For my digital art this time I have used a kit called "Remembrance of Time Past" by Nutkin Tailz Designs. I chose to use this kit because of the fact I need to remember to put God first.
