Sometimes all you need is a change is perspective.

There was a time in my life that I would have laughed in your face if you had said that. In fact I might have spit in it. A year of total hell and not being able to find a doctor who would’s enough to make the most sane person go crazy. . Only God can take something meant for evil and turn it into a wound that would eventually bring abundant life. Only God. @thecalliemperatrice thank you for reminding me of this amazing truth. 💕 @shelivesbrave

Hi 👋🏼 I’m back from my instagram hiatus. I was MIA on here for a little bit, the beach was calling. Happy to be back and a big THANK YOU to those of you who reached out wondering where I’ve been! Y’all seriously made me feel SO LOVED! 💛😭

Joyful. Today’s letter is a J and I am not feeling very joyful at the moment. I’m in need of some supernatural overflowing type of joy... but who isn’t 😂. We could all do with some extra joy! * * * “As we trust, we rejoice with an uncontained joy flowing from Yahweh!” ‭‭Psalms‬ ‭33:21‬ ‭TPT‬‬ * * * * * #dslettering #biblelettering #30daysofbiblelettering #chapterandverses #thecalligraphyhub #calligrabasics #togetherweletter #calledtobecreative #wordsofencouragement #pearlsprints #handletteringnewbie #biblejournaling #bibleverse #createdtoday #moderncalligraphy #shereadstruth #shewritestruth #shepaintstruth #strengthinletters #brushcalligraphy #watercolourlettering #scribblewithus #createinspirepositivity #imacalligrafile #liveyourfaith #womenintheword #calligraphyartistagram #creativityfound #letterarchive_j #abcs_j @letterarchive @handletteredabcs

I showed up late to my own #WatercolorWednesday party, sorry y'all 🙊⁣ ⁣ A verse I'm trying to live out right now is Deuteronomy 31:8 & at the end it says "Do not be afraid. Do not be discouraged." It's an amazing & challenging thing to try to do day in & day out. ⁣ ⁣ Today I painted a simple classic flower, one of my favorite things to do 😍🌻 Swipe to watch the timelapse! 👀👉🏼 ⁣ ⁣ PS: Is there any specific verse you'd like to see me watercolor around next week?

From everlasting to everlasting ❤️ This is will travel with my dad across the ocean to a lovely family member. . . . . . . #artteacherlife #shepaintstruth #pslam103 #artteacherlife #floralsyourway #creativeliving

“I have heard your prayer, I have seen your tears...” Isaiah 38:5 The prophet Isaiah lived in 8th century BC and he was sent to give voice to God’s word. Here in the 38th chapter, King Hezekiah is mortally ill. After the King cries out to God, the word of the Lord came to Isaiah to go to Hezekiah and tell him, “I have heard your prayer, I have seen your tears; behold, I will add fifteen years to your life.” And this righteous king was healed and lived to become father to his son Manasseh who succeeded him at 12 years old. We do not need prophets to tell us that God hears our prayers and sees our tears. We need only to see the proof in changed lives and answered prayers. There is Saint Monica who prayed for years for her profligate son. It seemed as if it was hopeless, but Saint Augustine made an about face and turned to God in ways that far exceeded his mother’s hopes and dreams for him. I enjoyed listening to Father Donald Calloway’s conversion story. He seemed like a hopeless case too. He was addicted to drugs, pornography, sex, had hair to his waist, got treated in a mental institution with no effect, drove around following hard metal bands, joined the Yakuza in Japan and got deported because of crimes involving hundreds of thousands of dollars of stolen goods. His mother LaChita Calloway would cry herself to sleep at night praying for him. She herself was converted to Catholicism because of one Filipino woman who would tell her about God. One night her son was alone in his room and to keep from killing himself he decided to read a book about the mother of Jesus. He got beguiled and did not stop until he finished the whole book overnight. In the morning, he ran to the nearest chapel and there were Filipina women there inviting him to pray the rosary. He looked at them like they were crazy! But when he attended mass, and the priest raised the host and the chalice, he heard a voice from out of nowhere, say, “Worship.” From then on there was no turning back for him. His mother said in an interview, “The road for my son has been long, with many turns. But out of the darkness there was always the light of the Lord holding out His arms," Mrs. Calloway.

Our God can redeem anything. It doesn't matter what you have done, or how badly you have messed up. He can bring beauty from the ashes of your life. He can turn your mourning into dancing. He can turn your weeping into songs of praise. There is nothing and no one that is too far gone. We have never wandered too far that His tender hand does not long to pull us back to Himself. . Run to Jesus. Surrender it all. Lay every single burden down at His feet. He is waiting. He will redeem.

•You are loved• -you are fearfully and wonderfully made -you are God’s masterpiece - you are a child of God - you are made in the image of God - YOU ARE LOVED! - Don’t let anyone tell you otherwise. God made you just the way he wanted to. You are perfect on his eyes and you don’t have to change to fit the eyes of everyone else. You. Don’t. Need. The. Approval. Of. Others.
