Wonderfully Made

Hi Friends,

What touched me the most about the Take Me Deeper devotion today at His Kingdom Come was the beautiful song, "Wonderfully Made". I had never heard it before and now I can't get enough of it. It is based on Psalm 139:14. Have a listen.

Think about it. You are God's masterpiece - the crowning achievement of his creation. You were not a mistake and you have a divine destiny - a reason for being on this earth. You are beautiful and you are loved. He loves to see your face; he longs to hear your voice.
I used Dylusions spray inks on my background and my "God's Girls - Creativity" stamp set from the Faith Art Shoppe at HKC. I stamped onto two different kinds of wrapping paper, which I cut out. I also mounted my girl onto dark green card stock.
I painted my girl and easels mainly with acrylics. I also doodled around some of the hearts with marker pens.
I wrote words in some of the hearts and "wonderfully made" at the bottom, which is the title of the song.
One really nice thing about the FaithArt stamps is they are very flexible and very sticky. I was able to bend the straight "His Masterpiece" stamp into an arch. I added my thumb print with Versa Mark ink and heat-embossed it with ultra-fine black powder.
Thank you for visiting my blog today. I do hope with all of my heart that you have at least at inkling of how very precious you are to God.

Blessing hugs,
