“Therefore I tell you, do not worry about your life…” Matthew 6:25
Do not fret – it leads only to evil. Psalm 37:8
I’m putting this picture as the fourth in the Lady Series. This was the first lady I painted. I really like how she turned out, however she looks a little stressed. Ladies, do you realize Jesus commands us not to worry? It’s really a trust issue. Do we really trust that the One who created the heavens and the earth – the One who knit us together in our mother’s womb – can really take care of our sick child, the bills, or the bad marriage? Can we really trust Him with those things? Does He really care about those things? YES!
A while back, I memorized Psalm 37 and was surprised to learn that fretting (another word for worrying) leads to nothing good – in fact, it leads only to evil. Hmmm, I think there’s some serious truth to that!
Wanted to write and tell you what a blessing your site is to me. I had not seen any of your “ladies series” and logged on today to enjoy your paintings. “Worried Woman” convicted me. Thank you for the reminder. See, God used used your gifting to encourage someone. I know He is doing that all the time you may just not see it. Keep painting what HE is placing in your life. You will probably never know the many ways He is using it in the lives of others but HE does. Be encouraged today my friend.
