Last weekend, I attended an arts and crafts show at my church. Y’all. There were so many pretty things there. If I had been smart about it, I would have brought my entire Christmas shopping list, but news flash: I am not a planner when it comes to Christmas shopping. I wish I was, but it’s just not going to happen.
Here’s what did happen though: I met Heather Russell of Christ Through Canvas. She’s a local artist with a heart for Christ and I just adored her work. So I bought one of her paintings for me and one of them for you.
So much of what we are doing in this series is taking what we know from the Bible and settling it in our hearts so that we can simply still our anxiety. Sure, I’m going to post something here every day for 31 days, but at the heart of it, all we are doing this month can be summed up with this:
Know. And be still.
We want to trust that what the Bible tells us about ourselves and about our God is true. To trust that He does not want you to live in anxiety. And trust that He has given us these Biblical truths so that we have a way to fight back when our heart rate starts to spike.
But sometimes, we need a visual reminder of all these things. And Psalm 46:10 just cuts right to the chase. Be still, girl. And know that God is God and He loves you and He is in control.
This giveaway has ended. Drat!
