You make me dwell in safety

I will both lie down in peace, and sleep; For you alone, O Lord, make me dwell in safety. - Psalm 4:8

I came across this verse last night while I was ruminating about my fears. This verse brought me comfort before I fell asleep and even throughout today, as I kept in mind that the Lord makes me dwell in safety... hope it brings you comfort as well!

Sketchbook & Journal Inspiration

I love seeing what other people do with their sketchbooks and journals. Here is a collection of some artist journals/sketchbooks that I particularly find inspiring:

Love little envelopes! (hellosandwich)
Nail polish as markers! (decor8blog)
Never can have too much washi tape :) (ohhellofriend)
Full page doodles (Geninne)
Observation drawings (claudiagpearson)
Simple collages (Camilla Engman)

I'll be traveling to Korea soon, and that is the perfect excuse for me to start a new sketchbook/journal. If any of my entries turn out good, I'll be sure to share :)

The Lord is at hand

"Rejoice in the Lord always. Again I will say, rejoice! Let your gentleness be known to all men. The Lord is at hand. Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication, with thanksgiving, let your requests be made known to God; and the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus." - Philippians 4:5-7

I was experiencing some anxiety these past few days, and this verse reminded me to let go of my worries and just rejoice and delight in God, resting assured that He is at hand.

Happy Easter!

So thankful for Christ's love for us! May you be blessed this Easter :)

DIY: Bible Reading Chart

I recently came across a free bible reading chart by Hannah Shim Designs, and it immediately caught my eye. I have seen bible reading schedules and charts before (that are usually large posters), but this handy chart is a wonderfully simple way to mark your progress on your bible reading. Loving the scan tron design, and if you fold it in fours, it makes a great bookmark!

I guess I got pretty excited about this, because I immediately printed out eight copies and tied them up with some gift tags to give to my bible study students this Easter Sunday :) Check out more of Hannah's DIY projects at thethingshannahloves.blogspot.com!

Be Humble

"Do nothing out of selfish ambition or vain conceit. Rather, in humility value others above yourselves, not looking to your own interests but each of you to the interests of the others.

In your relationships with one another, have the same mindset as Christ Jesus: 

Who, being in very nature God, did not consider equality with God something to be used to his own advantage; rather, he made himself nothing by taking the very nature of a servant, being made in human likeness. And being found in appearance as a man, he humbled himself by becoming obedient to death—even death on a cross!

Therefore God exalted him to the highest place and gave him the name that is above every name, that at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, in heaven and on earth and under the earth, and every tongue acknowledge that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father." - Philippians 2:3-11
