Be Still

Posted on: May 30th, 2013 by Hannah Beasley 8 Comments

God is our refuge and strength,
A very present help in trouble.
Therefore we will not fear,
Even though the earth be removed,
And though the mountains be carried into the midst of the sea;
Though its waters roar and be troubled,
Though the mountains shake with its swelling.

Be still, and know that I am God;
I will be exalted among the nations,
I will be exalted in the earth!

The Lord of hosts is with us;
The God of Jacob is our refuge.
-Psalm 46:1-3, 11-10

That verse – that passage – is such a comfort to me…to just stop and be still and know Jesus is God. Life gets put back into perspective when you do that – when you put aside your worries and your concerns and you remember that God is on His throne as the King of the Universe. I don’t think there’s anything more comforting than knowing He’s in control…and that He loves me.

I’ve been doing more hand lettering/handwriting in my projects and on my own, and I wanted to do some more today. I did this with normal Sharpie fine point pen (which is the most amazing non-fountain pen you could ever get. It uses real ink and is fantastic.). It’s simple, but it’s fun to try new things…in this case taking time to play around with different styles of writing – and even just slowing down long enough to form each letter! Because when I write, I normally go so fast that it’s hardly legible. It’s art, though, right? I hope you enjoy this wallpaper!
