“Urim & Thummim”

threehearts2As you probably know by now, I have been reading through the Bible chronologically with BRT2015 and Keith Ferrin.  As I read Exodus 31, I had to stop and pray!  O how I long to be:

“…filled with the Spirit of God in wisdom,

in understanding,

in knowledge,

and in all kinds of craftsmanship

to make artistic designs…”

Exodus 31: 3-4

As I read through Exodus 27 and 28 I couldn’t help myself, I just had to paint what was in my head.  I call it “Urim & Thummim”.

I know the colors are not specific to the verses.  Maybe I will paint another one with the colors mentioned.

I love to read the Scriptures and search for the beautiful “treasure” verses that pop out and give me a vision in my mind.  Those ones that describe just what I’m feeling and describe just what God is pleased with.  As we surrender our lives to Christ Jesus, He gives us special work to do and He equips us with the means to do them.

I would love to hear what your special work is.  How has God gifted you to encourage and bless the Body of Christ?

Happy SimplyLiving!

How To Pray For Children

Praying for guidance from God as a Mom is huge to me, I need all the help I can get.  When I don’t know exactly what to pray, I always turn to the Scriptures and just read them, write them, or pray them back to God.

My daily journals are literally filled to the brim with the handwritten Word of God.  I figure they are His Words so they are true and powerful, and I choose to trust that His Word will be done.

Here’s only one of the many beautiful prayers in the Bible.  This one was written by the Apostle Paul and it is perfect to pray over our children.

“… I bow my knees before the Father,
from whom every family in heaven and on earth derives its name,
that He would grant you, according to the riches of His glory,
to be strengthened with power through His Spirit in the inner man,
so that Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith;
and that you, being rooted and grounded in love,
may be able to comprehend with all the saints
what is the breadth and length and height and depth,
and to know the love of Christ which surpasses knowledge,
that you may be filled up to all the fullness of God.

Now to Him who is able to do far more abundantly
beyond all that we ask or think,
according to the power that works within us,
to Him be the glory in the church
and in Christ Jesus
to all generations
forever and ever, Amen.”
