When I left for college, my grandmother’s good friend (a former missionary) handed me a small sheet of paper. All it said was: “Proverbs 3:5-6.” As I was illustrating this verse, I thought about this amazing lady, who was still practicing ministry in her 90s, and how I so appreciated knowing that she was praying for me while I was away at school. At some point, I realized that I wrote the word path (not paths) in the little sign post below, but I fixed it. As I brought out the eraser, I reflected on all the many paths I’ve traveled so far: school, college, career, marriage, parenthood. I also thought about life’s little detours and misadventures. I’ve definitely discovered that trusting God day-by-day is the simplest and best way to travel through life. My understanding may fail me at times, but God is always faithful!
I belong to the Journaling Bible Community Facebook group, and one day the most, amazing beautiful picture popped up in my newsfeed. I was a bit in awe and totally humbled. It was a Journaling Bible entry by Karla Dornacher on Mary’s Magnifcat. It was my first introduction to her inspiring artwork. The following is my best attempt to do an entry modeled after her artwork.
