What's on Your Workdesk Wednesday 106

What's on my work desk today?
I've got my journal,
on top of a new work in progress.

I decided to use my paper scraps and just
glued them down using gel medium.
I'm probably going to use wall putty
to cover it a up a bit.

Today's reading from Corinthians
is one of my favorites.
Although we are reminded to be
generous with our blessings,
"to sow bountifully,
so we will reap bountifully",
we can claim God's promise that
He will provide for
ALL our needs,
even for the good work we do!

And this is so TRUE!
My family and I have been serving in
our local jail for about 3 years now,
and we have never lacked for resources
to share with them every week,
and especially every Christmas
when we prepare 300 bags of giveaways!

And here's a project I made
for a friend who is leaving for the US.
I was wondering what to give her,
and thought of decorating a purse
and putting prayers inside.

Join Julia and friends
for a lot of peeking at work desks and
projects! Two years old and
going strong!!

  17. Patsy,

    Every week when I see your artwork I am inspired by how you bring the scriptures to life. Today's verse about God's provision and how we are to use the resources he gives really made me stop and meditate on those truths.

    Thank you!
