I’m a Jesus lovin’ cancer fightin’ Texas gal sharing God’s beautiful Word through art
Of all the yucky parts of cancer, who would’ve thought I’d learn to love creating FaithArt? It proves God means business when He says He will create beauty from ashes and make all things ‘good’ to those who love Him!
In the Fall of 2014, I was diagnosed with with stage IV Breast Cancer. That word…you know, the one you never expect to hear…the one you never want to hear? Cancer. It's ugly. It's scary. The mind is immediately tempted to fast forward to worse-case scenarios. Well guess what? There are TONS of words (diagnoses) most folks never expect or want to hear. And honestly, to me…stage IV (medical code for treatable not curable) cancer is like any other disease without a known cure: Diabetes, Crohn's disease, MS, ALS, Asthma…just to name a few. The difference? Prognosis? Perhaps. One thing I quickly realized? An overwhelming awareness of the many unknowns in life is what tends to get us off kilter. And for me, that's where faith dictates which path I take…will I be confident like the prophet Daniel and cling to God? Or will I make feeble attempts to manage life's messiness on my own? Truthfully, I pray to be like Daniel, and yet often my lack of patience and experience tempts me to try and understand the whole puzzle picture even though I'm missing most of the pieces.
Here's the thing…there are three possible scenarios to EVERY trial: God will deliver me from the fire, God will deliver me thru the fire, or God will deliver me by the fire into His loving arms
The point is, I know and believe God WILL deliver me - my victory is assured and that's the root of cancer confidence.
That confidence opened doors to things I’d never experienced - primarily the joy of simple art. I’ve always loved to color - it’s incredibly soothing to me. And I’ve always had a thing for handwriting and simple doodles. When I found myself in this new season confronting cancer, I discovered such a peace combining God’s Word and coloring. This is also the time when Bible Journaling really started taking off!
Fast forward five years... I am still stable and officially a member of the 5% club (according to statistics, only 5% live beyond five years) - I wanted to be more purposeful sharing God’s wonderful Word and although it’s a bit scary for this overly analytical gal, I’ve stepped out in faith to open this shop!
My prayer is that these little pieces of art will encourage you in your walk of faith and help you discover all of God’s goodness
