“He has filled them with skill to do all manner of work of the engraver and the designer and the tapestry maker, in blue, purple, and scarlet thread, and fine linen, and of the weaver—those who do every work and those who design artistic works. Exodus 3:35
Our God is a very creative God. In the opening verses of the book of Genesis, we first meet God in the midst of creating. When studying Scripture, first mentions are very critical. Since God chose to open Scripture with the act of creation, we can assume creating is a very godly thing to do. Combining the study of Scripture and creating works of art is very pleasing to our Father.
The Heart Speaks is a very visual reminder of how the contents of the heart affect the words we speak. Whatever we store in our heart will be spoken by the tongue. As we go throughout the day we gather words, thoughts, and memories , good or bad, and choose to discard them or store them in our heart. If we decide to keep them, we will eventually speak them because, “Out of the treasures of the heart, the mouth speaks.”
What does your heart speak? Does it speak words of hope and life or does it speak bitterness, complaints, and criticism? Do you hide God’s Word in your heart so you can speak grace and peace into your life and the lives of others?

This project looks beautiful! Can’t wait to try it. I love how you give a short Bible study with the art project too. : )
