Mary's Faith - Luke 1:38

Last Sunday, I attended church at Eastview Christian Church, like usual. Our Pastor, Mike Baker, started a new All Church Sermon Series and Group Study called Walk. The entire sermon spoke about our responding to God's initiation in our lives as seen in Mary's walk. The key verse that spoke to me was Luke 1:38:
"May it be to me as you have said."

It was Mary's reaction to finding out from the angel what was going to happen in her life. It showed EXTREME faith that no matter how odd things may have seemed to her, she trusted that God was in control and had her best at heart.

I immediately knew that I wanted to paint something with that verse on it. I want to always remember that He is in control of my life and he knows what is best at ALL times. I pray that no matter what happens in my life, that I remember this verse and have the faith to know it in my heart, like Mary.

Here are some pictures of the canvas I made. It took me all week to finish, but it turned out exactly how it looked in my head. Absolutely, the coolest thing that God has ever helped me paint.
