Glory Art Challenge with Patter Cross - #8 - Prayer

Please visit Patter's blog HERE  to read what she has shared for this fortnight's challenge.

I had chosen my scripture but had not found what to also include on my digital piece of artwork. Then this afternoon I read a small devotion  from "One Quiet Moment" by Lloyd Jon Ogilivie and the Lord pointed out what I should share on my page. God's timing is so perfect.

I have been busy lately with my digital scrapbooking and next month I open my first digital store which is within a digital scrapbooking online store. I really felt the Lord lead me to do this as it came about in a way I had not been looking for. For two years I have been designing mini kits which I give away on my other blog ( A-M ) as part of a small group of other Christian Designers and it was through this that I was offered to become a paid Designer. I have been dabbling in designing since 2009 and have taken part in two designer contests. The last one I competed in I made it to the last round and pulled out as I felt I was not ready to be involved in selling my designs. Now I am ready - the Lord prepared me for it - I just needed to be patient and wait for His timing. In the store I am about to start selling at there is another Christian Designer who is fairly new at designing and I have taken her under my wing and have been helping  and encouraging her.  

Here is my art for this fortnight:

Glory Art Challenge with Patter Cross - #7 - Anxious

Please visit Patter's blog HERE  so that you can read her thoughts about this fortnight's word - ANXIOUS.
This is a teaching I need to be taught over and over. I always seem to slip back into being anxious over little things. The morning after I read Patter's teaching on this, God wanted to give me a gentle nudge as in the Daily Bread reading my Husband and I do each morning at breakfast the words by Oswald Chambers were shared that I have used on my digital artwork.

Glory Art Challenge with Patter Cross - #6 - Follower

When I read Patter's devotion which you can read HERE , it was one of those times when God was reaffirming a teaching.  Just the week prior to this, our Church held a night for those interested to see a DVD about "Being a Fan or Follower" of Jesus. We were not able to attend this event but did decide to borrow the DVD to watch it ourselves.
It does make you stop and think... " Am I just a fan of Jesus.... am I really a follower???" He wants me to and He asks  me to follow Him, so as the song/hymn says... " I have decided to follow Jesus...."

A chorus from a Hymn we sang in a Church I attended quite some years ago came to my mind after reading Patter's teaching so I had to search the old hymn books I have to find it as I did not know the title or first line of the hymn.  "Mr Google" helped me to find the title.
My digital page is a very simple one but in the kit I used there just happened to be the flair  with "you have my heart (drawing)" so I added the word Jesus.
