WAW: No weapon shall prosper

Hey dear blog-readers.

How was your weekend? And how did you start this last week of January?  I hope good!

Well, I'm tuning in to share another project for this weeks Word Art Wednesday challenge. The scripture is so beautiful. And so useful for me in this time of my life. Though it's going so much better with me, with overcoming my burnout (which almost has been started 2 years ago), sometimes I do let fear get the overhand. Fortunately not that heavy as in the beginning, what resulted in panic attacks and not daring to go out to do things anymore. I do feel so much better, but sometimes I do feel tired and the the fear of something that can happen, pops up. But thank God, I know He is always there for me and all I have to do it put my trust in Him and know that nothing can form against me ;)  So this scripture is so helpful for me, to remember that God is in control.

 Well, last Sunday I listened to a sermon from Hour of Power. And wow, did I need that! It was about our dreams. That we need to dare to dream the impossible dream. Dreams are the seed for success.
If you can dream it, you can do it. But we must be willing to dream. Think about Michael Jordan. The coach said he was not good enough. But he dreamed to be a great basketball-er. So his dreams came true in the end, because Michael didn't stop dreaming.
So what stops us to follow our dreams? It's because of the dream-busters. They are everywhere and are called:  fear and doubt. Those 2 are stealing your dreams.
When fear and doubt knock on your door, let faith and courage open the door for you. Then fear and doubt have no chance at all to steal away your dreams.

God would not give us a dream that we cannot achieve ;-)

Well, before I start preaching again..... (I could go on and on)  I will show you my canvas board with Calla Lily's  for this weeks scripture.



And here is my video of how this came together. 




I wish you a very good and blessed week!  And I hope to see you next week.

Hi Wendy...Thanks for the compliments you left in my blog regarding my little old lady card. Truly God is awesome and because of what Jesus did, we have the righteousness of God and we are safe in His arms. Oh my, I just watched the video of your artwork today for WAW and that is some work you do out there. I love how you make it look easy but there's a lot into creating than what our eyes can see. I'm so glad you take the time to show us. Fabulous job, my dear friend! God bless!

Wendy: I agree with JoAnn, you really let your love for the Lord shine through your art. We can see His gifts poured out on you as you create with His Word, and you inspire others to create with that same passion. You are a blessing to all of us at WAW, and I praise God for you!

Wendy,
I am amazed at how you do all those things with paint brushes and a beautiful piece of art emerges. God has given you a talent and I for one am so glad you didn't bury it.
Psalm 23 Blessings

Another gorgeous piece of artwork, Wendy! Not sure where my week went, so I'm late finding my way here, but ahhh....it was worth it! Love it. Enjoyed your video. Love to listen to you. You sound a bit like Beate on Splitcoast Stampers!!! :)
