LOC FAF Majestic God

Each week Layers of Color hosts Faith Art Friday, where it is not about product and sales but where we share our art and our faith!  This is such a blessing to so many of us.  We share each others projects regularly on our blogs and come to the galleries here to be inspired by art - but on Fridays - it is faith based and inspirational on many levels!

Inspiration comes in many forms and can happen in the most unexpected ways.  Recently I was inspired by the Majesty of God, challenged about awe and respect and inspired to create this card!

My husband and I just celebrated our 20th Wedding Anniversary and went on an wonderful weekend to Melbourne - while sightseeing we visited St Paul's Cathedral


As soon as I walked into the Church I was overwhelmed with the beauty that lay within - the detail and the opulence - it is breathtaking.  My eyes feasted on the beauty and my spirit was deeply moved recalling the words of the Psalmist
 O LORD, our Lord, how majestic is your name in all the earth!
Psalm 8:1 and 9

 
Everything about God is MAJESTIC. "Majestic." The Hebrew meaning of the word 'majestic' tells us that God is the incomparable, omnipotent God - something that is found throughout scripture
Who among the gods is like you, O LORD? Who is like you--majestic in holiness, awesome in glory, working wonders?
 Exodus 15:11
There is no one holy like the LORD; there is no one besides you; there is no Rock like our God. 1 Sam 2:2

 Among the gods there is none like you, O Lord; no deeds can compare with yours. Psalms 86:8  

No one is like you, O LORD; you are great, and your name is mighty in power.
Jeremiah 10:6

God is majestic in power, in splendor, in glory, in works, and in holiness. There is no god like the Lord God almighty.

I love the freedom and liberty we have as believers, we have the knowledge that we are the Church and the Temple of the Holy Spirit.  I do pray that as we enjoy this freedom, we do not lose sight of the Holiness of God - His Majesty.  This beautiful Cathedral reminds me so beautifully that God is a Holy God, one commanding respect and honour at all times, by WHO He is.  I pray that this temple, will always enjoy the freedom that cost Him so dearly but will at all times, praise and worship our majestic God.
I pray our hearts will continually overflow with the words of King David
O LORD, our Lord, how majestic is your name in all the earth!
Psalm 8:1
I have used Layers of Color Architectural Blocks art stamp set for this project, along with Spellbinders Grommet Tags, Floral Doily Accents (designed by Nina Brackett) which has been cut with the Spellbinders Grand Calibur. Tsukineko Versafine, Prismacolor Pencils, Odourless Mineral Spirits and half pearls.
