Here, above, is spread two of the IDENTITY art journal. The flap is closed. When opened, as shown below, the left portion illustrates Jesus' sacrifice, life before the cross and life after, being recreated to be more like Jesus. The rest of the page is about that.
I listen to the podcasts by Rob Davey from Jubilee Church Solihull that Bernice Hopper has based the Identity Journal Study on. They are insightful and inspirational, a pleasure to listen to and flow with as I journal.
I often need a perspective adjustment. What if I really understood what God says about me, about others? I feel like I'm just beginning to awaken to what that might mean:
PLEASE GIVE ME YOUR PERSPECTIVE GOD!
"Because of the sacrifice of the Messiah, his blood poured out on the altar of the Cross, we're a free people - free of penalties and punishments chalked up by all our misdeeds. And not just barely free, either. Abundantly free! He thought of everything, provided for everything we could possibly need, letting us in on the plans he took such delight in making. He set it all out before us in Christ, a long-range plan in which everything would be brought together and summed up in him, everything in deepest heaven, everything on planet earth." - Ephesians 1:7-10 The Message
What an amazing thing that God loves us so much, He included us in His plans and delights in giving us abundant freedom!
