2009 Scripture Number 2

*A note before you read this. After doing an audit of my blog in 2022, I have decided to leave content that speaks to the Christian I was at the time this was written. I no longer identify as Christian (and haven’t for a very long time.) I chose to leave these posts because it is who I was then and it is important to me to be honest and true with every iteration and evolution of self that I experience. I may decide to add comments to the end of posts like this as well

Before I get to the second verse of the year, a recap of the first is in order. (More about verse one here and here.)

Scripture Number One: Now faith is the reality of what is hoped for, the proof of what is not seen. Hebrews 11:1 (Holman Christian Standard)

Here’s the last photo you saw of my Scripture art

And now…my Scripture Art as it will remain

I believe I’ve committed this verse to memory, though probably not word for word. Understanding ideas is far more important to me than getting every word correct. And of course, the spiritual battle is raging. However, I’m leaning on a verse I learned back in January of 2006–Exodus 14:14 says (in my version) Shut up and the Lord will fight this battle for you. So my lips are zipped, my mind is active with Scripture, and my hands are busy making art. God has me right where He wants me, in His right hand.

Onto 2009 Scripture Number 2

“I will praise the LORD who counsels me–even at night my conscience instructs me.”

Psalm 16:7
