“As a deer longs for flowing streams, so my soul longs for you, O God.” Psalm 42:1
This week, I came across two drawings that I did while in seminary. My schedule was pretty screwed up back then. More times than I care to admit, I would set my alarm for 3:00 a.m. in order to complete an assignment. There was little time for art, but I wanted to do it.
To get back into the practice of art, a friend suggested to me that I might start by just holding some art supply in my hand and present that to God. At the time, I had been cutting small paper squares and putting them in a glass canning jar for use later to create some small mosaic something. It was comforting to sit before God during prayer time, just holding that glass jar, without words. My holding the half empty jar said it all.
I plan to make prints of these two studies and will post my process.
Prayer: Thank you, God, for quenching our thirst for you in amazing ways.
