Bathroom Beautification

As a parent of teenagers I became a facebooker, instagramer, tweeter, pinner, etc. You have to. This post isn't about parenting or social media but I promise you, it's important to be able to navigate the same sites your children are. Obviously, they do it better and more often but I make my presences known. ANYWAY, one day as I was scrolling through instagram I found a post by daily_bibleverses that I knew had to go on my bathroom wall. Fast forward about a year and finally there is paint on my bathroom walls so I could start the creative process.

Here is the finished product. I love walking into my bathroom each morning and the first thing I see is this design with a reminder that With GOD all things are possible. 
I don't want anyone to think I am more capable than I really am. An old-school projector helped me shoot the image on the wall. I had to free hand the four ends of the cross but all that tough stuff I had a guide. Here's the kicker, my bedroom, bathroom and laundry area all have to be clean all the time so I can show off my artwork. I guess next time I will do something like this in the entry way. Ha

With man this is impossible 
but with God all things are possible
Matthew 19:26

So often this verse, like many are misused. It doesn't mean if I follow God I can do anything that I hope and dream for. This verse is in the middle of a passage about what it takes to get into heaven. Remember we are saved by FAITH! Jesus is telling a rich man and the disciples to follow the commandments and sell your possessions to give to the poor then follow me (Jesus). The rich man was sad and Jesus tells them,  it is easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle than someone who is rich to enter the kingdom of God. It's not our possessions that hold us back, it's the love of our possessions that gets in the way of us fully devoting ourselves to God's purpose. This is when Jesus points out to them, with man this is impossible but with God all things are possible. God is good all the time.

Now I'm off to Hobby Lobby to purchase a canvas. I have two orders for this design. Oh how I love to create. Have a great weekend!

A Challenge

Verse of the Day
Whoever has my commands and keeps them is the one who loves me. The one who loves me will be loved by my Father, and I too will love them and show myself to them.” (‭John‬ ‭14‬:‭21‬ NIV)

Ok friends this is our challenge for today. Don't just know His Commands but keep them. Love is a great place to start. This was actually yesterday's verse for me but I didn't do a very good job so I'm starting fresh today. Pretty much like I do everyday.

Have a great day!
