TCOTWSC CC Weekly Update- WEEK 2

WEEK 2!

What a great follow up to our start last week.


I want to share something beautiful I read in Psalm 107. In it, you find the people sinning, wandering, toiling, enslaved, fighting nature, etc... and in each time they find themselves desperate, (even when their own sin has made them so) when they "cried out to God in their distress", He answered them and turned things around for their deliverance. I don't know about you, but I often allow my sin to keep me from crying out - I feel like I can't possibly go asking for help AGAIN...or I know my trouble was something I "behaved myself into" and fairness calls upon me to get myself out of it or just "pay the dues". But my God and Father is compassionate, and merciful; a deliverer and ever-present help.

Why would I not let Him deliver me out of my troubles. Isaiah 30 says He responds instantly to the sound of our cries...so why not just cry out? I needed the reminder of His continual grace and it was like life to my bones and freedom to a bound and heavy heart.

Perhaps this week you, too, will need to just cry out to Him and find that He's just been waiting for you, watching from a long way off- like the father of the prodigal- so that He could lavish His kindness on you and deliver you from...[you name it].

May it be so. xo

THIS WEEK IN ART

We practiced using OiLS elements of line today, In Mirror Images. Here is the link to the image on the left.

Mirror images can actually be pretty tough- you may find it fun for the whole family to sit down and play with them! The trick is getting us to see what angles and curves are REALLY there- and not what we THINK is there. Have fun!!
