Word Art Wednesday is having it's weekly challenge and offering a beautiful scripture at no cost to download,
The Verse is Psalm 46:10: Be still and know that I am God
It is one of my favorites and one I have clung to many times over the decades of my life.
I made this card to enter into the challenge
I choose a Bamboo because I could think of nothing more apparently still while growing at an unbelievable rate. I witnessed bamboo growing wild near where I lived many years ago on the border of Mexico. It is a tremendously strong plant, I saw it weather floods, and hurricanes bending till it was flat on the ground, a few days after the storms it would be straight and many feet higher. One particular grove of it became a refuge for people crossing the river, this plant was so thick and lush it became a massive complex of rooms and paths cut into it.
The secret of the Bamboo's strength is water, the more it consumed the stronger, denser and taller it became.
Jesus is the Water of Life
I would like to be like Bamboo, to be still and know my God is in perfect control. To Drink in the Water of life and rise up in beauty and strength, to be a refuge to those that are going from the known of the life of this world to the unknown life in the kingdom and family of God.
Here is how I made the card:

a patterned paper from one of my chopped stacks., I set a few templates on my desktop to making printing easier. This image I printed on the 6x6 patterned paper
then worked it with a little glitter glue as a paint:
Here is the card:
I took two photos one with flash and one without, so that you can see the subtle glitter:
Be Still and Know That He Is God
