Just because (7)

“He that dwelleth (‘yashab’–to sit down, remain)
in the secret place of the most High
shall abide (‘stable and fixed’)  
under the shadow of the Almighty.”
Psalm 91:1
When God brings a challenge and a trial,
it always produces a deep work 
of his healing and love.
I processed the work with watercolors and God gave me this picture.
It’s been my meditation all week.

  1. How fine, Jody! Creating to understand is a special gift that you have been given. I am so glad you shared this umbrella along with the Scripture and Hebrew. We are exchanging Hebrew this day! Thanks for stopping by, ~ linda


  2. 'Love the imagery of the colorful umbrella. 'Love your heart and spirit, where these images originate (with a little help from the Spirit! 🙂 1. A storm can hurl pelting rain, but a broad umbrella offers relief. The storms of life hurl pain and sorrow, but God our Refuge offers sublime relief. We do have to stay under the umbrella, though, don't we. 2. A rainbow reminds us that God always keeps his promises (Gen. 9:16-17)! Such truth is all the more comforting when the storm is raging. Thank you again, Jody, for your thought-provoking and inspirational posts!


  3. Jody- Love processing my heart, thoughts, prayers, hopes, dreams and desires with art…once again I love your “just because” posts…keep them coming…just because!


  4. Judy,

    What a great idea to process hard things with a paintbrush in hand. I take walks, or journal, or count God's gifts in a gratitude journal trying to train my eye to see differently, or slip away to breathe in fresh air outside and to listen to the sounds of nature. I can feel my shoulders visibly lowering with that. 🙂

    I appreciated the Hebrew word there too.

    Have a good week, Judy.
