Unswerving Faithfulness

Hello all, it seems like ages since I last posted :)  I've been enjoying the sunshine ... hahaha,  this is England!  No, seriously, we have actually had a few sunny days and my garden and beloved roses have been calling.

My art journal page today was inspired by a wonderful devotional book called Streams in the Desert which is rich and full of treasure.  In my reading it said that God has an unswerving faithfulness to His trusting child.  I loved that.  It means that he never deviates an iota from being faithful to us.  We can go through difficult times and it might seem like He hasn't answered our prayers, but He is all-wise and all-loving and His plans are perfect.  Whatever we are going through is for a reason.  My book then went on to say that it is safe to trust in His methods and His clock.  God's clock keeps perfect timing!

Here is my art journal page.  The current  challenge at PaperArtsy is Hidden Objects and at Craft Stamper it is Texture so I've included hidden journaling and lots of texture. 


I went bold and warm or even hot for this page, scraped paint all over and then added the book paper and texture paste and played with stamps.  I added the scalloped hearts which I'd scrunched and swiped with paint and I love the effect.  The stems are raffia - more texture!


I wanted to include some hidden journaling so I hid it behind a scalloped circle which I'd painted and stamped in the same way.  Its mean to look a bit like a clock with the clock hands being the words to show God's clock but its a bit wonky and off centre!


I punched out a couple of circles in plain paper for my journaling and stapled them all together so I can pull the first circle forward to read it again:


I really had fun doing this page, fun with the art, but I also had a little glow around my heart knowing that my awesome God is unswervingly faithful to me :)

Are you going through a difficult time?  Take heart, God is unswervingly faithful to you too and He is working things out for the best.
