What song are you singing today? In God's Word, He tells us to make a joyful noise unto Him! That Word, I believe is as much about us as it is for Him. I believe that joyful noise is to yes indeed to magnify and glorify Him because He wants us to come into His presence with singing and praises as we gladly serve Him, but it's also about us, our hearts before Him! When you sing a new song daily, I believe that it opens up our hearts for a fresh wind of the Spirit, a new influx of grace and a deeper relationship with our Father in Heaven. When you do that, you can then indeed serve Him gladly and praise Him with higher praises!
If we stay in a state of expectation, hearts yielded to His will, I believe that lays us open for ALL the Father has for us. When you are constantly being "filled," you will have to pour, out and that pouring out will activate His infinite mercy and grace as He equips you for Kingdom building! But that pouring out initiates a "new filling" of grace and mercy and a new song in your heart before the Lord! It is a wonderful, beautiful cycle that God the Father desires from us with all His heart! Abba Father loves for His children to passionately seek Him that He could pour out on us! God is so good!
The canvas that I have done for today is our of my desire to praise and honor Him daily! I thought about the beautiful birds of the air and how they never cease to sing a song! I want to be like them singing constantly a new song unto Him. I really had fun doing this canvas. It just all came together and clicked. I love when that happens.
Initially I put some old book page paper and some Bo Bunny Collection paper in the background. I then used various colors of blue and teal acrylic paint (which I love, love) randomly. I then took my favorite Silks acrylic glazes and sponged through a stencil and then stamped some fun background stamps around for more texture. I used some of my fun emphemera distressing with Tim Holtz distress inks and did a tag coloring with some yummy gelatos and topping it off with Tim Holtz distress ink and a cute ideology pin that says "thoughts" on it. The sentiment was easy stamping and distressing as well. I finished it off with another fave my Viva Inka Gold! It brought a song to my heart and I have been singing all morning!
What song is in your heart today? Forever God will continue to "show the immeasurable riches of His grace in kindness toward us in Christ Jesus" (Ephesians 2:7), and as He does, for His glory and for that freshness and joy in your heart, sing Him a new song of praise out of your great desire to know Him and be known!
Blessings to you today!
