The woman with the violin series comes to a close now with this:
A Place to Rest
Jesus says, “Come to Me, all you who labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. Take My yoke upon you and learn from Me, for I am gentle and lowly in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For My yoke is easy and My burden is light.”
Thank you, Lord, for Your rest and Your tender mercies. I'm amazed at how if we are not careful, we will miss some of God's blessings. Being snowed in has turned into a wonderful gift from the Lord. Having extra free time makes me realize how much more I desire to be with God and spend more time with Him. I pray that we will continually have our eyes open and our ears open to see God blessing us--sometimes in strange ways. He is a good God. Unexpected blessings occur all the time. Let's not miss them. Let us devote our time to the Lord and rest in His presence and awesome Holiness!
Lord willing, the next artwork I will do will be on patience. He's been teaching me so much about patience lately in my quiet time and in life's circumstances!
I leave you with this scripture to meditate on:
But He gives us more grace. That is why Scripture says:
"God opposes the proud
but gives grace to the humble."
