LOC FAF You Guide Me

Faith Art Friday comes around so quickly, those of you who know me, would know that Faith Art is a passion of mine - I am honoured to be able to host this post at Layers of Color - thank you Laura for the opportunities you give me - it is an honour!

'If I ride the wings of the morning, if I dwell by the farthest oceans,
even there Your hand will guide me, and Your strength will support me.'
Psalm 139:9-10


How wonderful to have the assurance that we do not walk this journey on our own, God's word tells us that.....

'Howbeit when he, the Spirit of truth, is come, he will guide you into all truth: for he shall not speak of himself; but whatsoever he shall hear, that shall he speak: and he will show you things to come.'
John 16:13

God's guidance is not for 'special occassions' or for specific situations.....
'And the LORD shall guide thee continually, and satisfy thy soul in drought, and make fat thy bones: and thou shalt be like a watered garden, and like a spring of water, whose waters fail not.

Isa 58:11


It is not something that we can boast about or take any credit for - rather.....

'The meek will he guide in judgment: and the meek will he teach his way.'
Psalm 25:9

God is eternal and will guide us in both life and death....

'For this God is our God forever and ever: he will be our guide unto death.'
Psalm 48:14

What better response is there, than to echo the words of the Psalmist....

'For thou art my rock and my fortress; therefore for thy name's sake lead me, and guide me.'
Psalm 31:3
May this be the cry of our hearts!
I have used the Backyard Birds, Nature Walk, Royal Birds and Merci Bouquet art stamp sets to create this project!  This is a page from my Vintage Paper Bag Album - my favourite kind of project.  I have decided that this would be a great place to keep some of my Faith Art - you can expect to see more album pages in the future!

  2. Great idea for an album! I'm also wondering, as Grace did, is the Scripture a stamp or did you print it? Thanks for another beauty! ~hugs~

  4. Hi Linda this is absolutely bee-oo-tiful - Love your thoughts too. I to wandered if you stamped or computer generated your verse, and also, how did you make the 'eggs' - they are fabulous.
