“And why do you worry about clothes? See how the flowers of the field grow. They do not labor or spin. Yet I tell you that not even Solomon in all his splendor was dressed like one of these. If that is how God clothes the grass of the field, which is here today and tomorrow is thrown into the fire, will he not much more clothe you—you of little faith?”Matthew 6:28-30 NIV
Mindfulness Practice for January: Meditation / Spending time alone with nature and God.
I’m still a week behind in posting this… ☹️ I’m just starting to get back into the groove of things and my “new normal life”. Hopefully I get to post Week 3 before the weeked so you can follow along. But, it doesn’t really matter if we’re a week behind. What matters is we make time to meditate on God’s Words every week through Christian mindfulness.
For Week 2, meditated on the awesome flowers God made for us and how He “clothes” the grasses, how much more us. He wants our unconditional trust in Him just like a child to his Father. When we worry about everything we need, we lose sight of what’s already infront of us. We don’t appreciate the “present moment” and the things we have because we are too busy looking at what we don’t have and the future that may never come.
I used to be such a control freak. I want everything to go “my way” and I end up frustrated most of the time. My journey towards my Artist Residency taught me how to “let go and let God” countless times from dreaming about it up to my last day in London!
Let me share with you what I did today meditating on His Word while “painting” this on my iPad. You can try this using digital or traditional art materials. You don’t need to make realistic flowers. Just draw and paint them while meditating on His words and listening to that still small voice that you might not be hearing because of the “noise” around us.
Will try to upload the timelapse video of the process on my IGTV soon. Follow me on Instagram @aireescreates
