Last year, our music minister challenged us to memorize Psalm 34. One of my favorite verses and of course the easiest to learn was verse 1. Ha ha!!!! Verse 1. But, as the bible says, God' word never returns void. So I am going to share with you how verse one has not returned void in my life!
"So will My word be which goes forth from My mouth;It will not return to Me empty,Without accomplishing what I desire,And without succeeding in the matter for which I sent it."
This painting actually was a painting that I didn't like. It never turned out right. i was trying to paint an angel. I couldn't get the wings to work out right. All I wanted to do was throw it away and get rid of the frustration of trying to make it work. But....... God gave me an idea with Psalm 34:1.
So I got to painting over the old and this is what turned out. I love it!
The word "bless" means to bestow favor or praise.
This painting is a reminder that I am to praise God at all times. Praise shall continually be on my lips. I forget to praise God sometimes. But, the bible tells me to praise God, to bless Him at all times: in the morning, when I am about my daily tasks, in the car, when I am talking to a friend, in my living room, when I take care of my child, when I am making dinner, you get the idea.
Tell me how you are doing praising God at all times?
