Hello everyone… Happy Saturday! I hope you all have a fabulous week so far… Today I have a Bible Journaling on Ephesian 1:11-14 to share with you all.
“In him we have obtained an inheritance, having been predestined according to the purpose of him who works all things according to the counsel of his will, so that we who were the first to hope in Christ might be to the praise of his glory. In him you also, when you heard the word of truth, the gospel of your salvation, and believed in him, were sealed with the promised Holy Spirit, who is the guarantee of our inheritance until we acquire possession of it, to the praise of his glory.”
In these verses you can find the truth and confirmation that only in Him, of Him, and through Him we can find assurance of our salvation, inheritance in Christ and promises. No one else in this world can do that to us. Only GOD can. He does that only through Christ alone.
Our family lost 2 dear family relatives this month. We were sad but also at the same time we have hope and joy knowing that both of them lived their lives trusting and had their faith in Christ Jesus. We will miss them a lot!
My prayer for you today that you find confident, hope and faith in Christ alone. No matter in what situation or circumstance you are in right now, seek Him in His presence where you receive the blessings He has provided for you today. Praise Him in your situation for who He is and what He has done in your life in the past, for He is faithful God and God of hope. He can save you today!
To journal this truth in my journaling Bible today, I created a vellum insert using one of the new digital stamp from Graciellie Design. You can create any projects using this In Christ Alone Digital Stamp.
First, I open the flower file and sentiment file with Silhouette Studio Design Software on my computer. You can use all Graciellie Design digital stamps with any picture editing programs and even Word program.
On the Silhouette Studio, I drew a rectangle with the size of the journaling Bible page. Next, I copied and pasted the flower twice and positioned them at each corner of the page. Then I copied and pasted the phrase and positioned it in the middle of the page. I resized and moved them around to fit the page and once I was happy with it, I printed the design on a vellum paper using inkjet printer in black and white.
I let the printed page to dry over night. You can always use craft heater to dry the ink only the down side of this technique is that the paper is large and will wrinkle.
I then colored the flowers with ShinHan Touch Twin makers. And after the inks were dry, I sprinkled some white acrylic spray paint on it using fan brush for extra snowy look on it.
Once all mediums were dried well in few minutes, I trimmed it down using the rectangles lines as the guide. I added the vellum insert page on the Bible using ScorTape 1/8″ double-sided tape.
I hope you find this tutorial easy to follow and inspire you to keep journaling God’s words in creative way to express your love to Him.
THANK YOU so much for stopping by my blog today. May you have a blessed day!
