Day 155 – Putting the pieces together

Color and Theme Project: Week 5 – Color: Brown – Theme: Fear

I claim this scripture to overcome fear:

“For I am the Lord, your God, who takes hold of your right hand and says to you, Do not fear; I will help you.” Isaiah 41:13

(This is what you would find at my studio… As I was taking this picture I was thinking that fear destroys us… leaving us in pieces… but the Lord is helping us slaying this giant… He is putting all the pieces together!)

Day 154 – A fearless way

Color and Theme Project: Week 5 – Color: Brown – Theme: Fear

I claim this scripture to overcome fear:

“The Lord is my light and my salvation — whom shall I fear? The Lord is the stronghold of my life — of whom shall I be afraid?” Psalm 27:1


Day 153 – Casting out the fear

Color and Theme Project: Week 5 – Color: Brown – Theme: Fear

I claim this scripture to overcome fear:

“There is no fear in love. But perfect love drives out fear, because fear has to do with punishment. The one who fears is not made perfect in love.” 1 John 4:18

(I love this verse! When the theme of fear came up, I knew I had to include this verse… Today was one interesting day. Weeks ago I saw this beautiful all brown wild mushroom. So I thought that when the color brown comes I’ll definitely come back to take the picture… Guess what? I wasn’t there anymore… So, I took another picture of a tree… But I knew that tonight was going to be a special night… So I waited to see what else God would show me… We had a Talent Show at my church and a I had the privilege to paint live in a church for the second time (in my church was the first time)… It is very hard… specially because since you are painting in a church you think that people expect something like a cross or a dove or hands… something that they can relate to… And with this idea in the back of my mind, I planned to paint something that would please the “audience”. And then the Talent Show stared and I was painting as people were performing… I was so, so nervous and afraid… One thing is to paint in your comfort zone, other is to paint live in front of people that you know…  The nervousness wasn’t going away… I wasn’t happy with what I was painted… I quietly prayed… I asked God to be there with me because I wasn’t liking what I was doing… Then it hit me: Hey, you are abstract painter… do what you know how to do… And I did… I was letting fear of criticism take over what I know how to do and what I love to do… The nervousness took off… and I was able to enjoy the moment… I remembered the verse… the love of God, His perfect love for me right there cast away the fear I was having… The painted was kind of brownish… so I took a picture of the palette I used… and to top it off, people liked the painting and it already belongs by someone else! :))


Day 152 – On the sidewalk

Color and Theme Project: Week 5 – Color: Brown – Theme: Fear

I claim this scripture to overcome fear:

“The Lord is on my side; I will not fear. What can man do to me?” Psalm 118:6

(How much different our lives would be if we claim this verse as soon as the day starts?)

I claim this scripture to overcome fear:

“So do not fear, for I am with you; do not be dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen you and help you; I will uphold you with my righteous right hand.” Isaiah 41:10


Day 150 – We are safe…

Color and Theme Project: Week 5 – Color: Brown – Theme: Fear

I claim this scripture to overcome fear:

“Have no fear of sudden disaster or of the ruin that overtakes the wicked, for the Lord will be at your side and will keep your foot from being snared.” Proverbs 3:25-26


Day 149 – Message from above

Color and Theme Project: Week 5 – Color: Brown – Theme: Fear

I claim this scripture to overcome fear:

“Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid or terrified because of them, for the Lord your God goes with you; he will never leave you nor forsake you.” Deuteronomy 31:6

(I had to listen to my inner child for today’s picture… She told me that trees are supposed to be brown. I did not argue with her this time!)
