mixed media Bible art journaling entry Psalm 34:18 - Be near the broken hearted by Heather Greenwood

Sometimes a journaling entry goes totally in a different direction than planned. It was evident that I just needed to spend some sweet time in the Word and in prayer this week. I grabbed the Seeds of Faith Collection because it makes me think of my mama… the birds, the florals, and the bold pastel color scheme.

After praying and asking God where He wanted me to spend some time, I came across Psalm 34:18 which says,

The Lord is near to the brokenhearted
and saves the crushed in spirit.

This verse really made me cry out in prayer and I prayed for my mama the whole time. Growing up she always has a smile on her face and a positive attitude. Her faith is so big and I’m so grateful to be brought up with such an example of a woman of faith.

While I wanted to write a tutorial for today, I ended up learning that sometimes we just need to show that we Bible journal for the experience rather than the techniques. Sometimes we’re so into the prayer that we don’t stop and take photos of the process to share. Sometimes, the Lord just leads us to pray hard prayers and beg for his nearness.

I wanted to end with sharing a song that’s been playing over and over again while my family is in a deep valley. I pray that you know that even when it doesn’t feel like it, God always sees you and is near.
