God my Helper reflections

“I lift up my eyes to the mountains – where does my help come from? My help comes from the Lord, the Maker of heaven and earth.” Psalm 121:1-2


Psalm 121:1-2

“God is our helper, a really good one! He showed me as I was writing that I actually needed to ask Him, the Helper to help me. I had been so distracted with trying to fix things myself and getting frustrated as to why I’m not seeing God, but I simply had to surrender myself and my hands to Him, and ask for help. Everything now makes more sense.”


God’s Reassurance “Rest enveloped and secure in your Saviour, under angels, nestled in His comfort and unending love which is everlasting”

“These are the words the Lord gave me – a word or words for each of the letters that spells reassurance.


God’s Love

“I have loved you with an everlasting love; I have drawn you with unfailing kindness.” Jeremiah 31:3

“During the creativity time after I read the scripture , I felt the Lord prompting me to colour in the page provided, ‘God is love’. I don’t like colouring in, but I thought ok, I will do it. After a few minutes I realised I was actually enjoying it, and I felt the Lord speaking to me about rest, so I wrote the words under the colouring in, one sentence, then as I coloured in  I got more words, I was so blessed with the Lord’s words to me, it was what I needed to hear from Him at this time. I really saw His love and care for me in a deeper way.”


“As I coloured in I meditated on ‘Be still and know that I am God’ and as I let go to be still I sensed the delight and joy in who God is and I was able to receive delight and joy in the picture. I sensed a deep security spending time with Him, a oneness within myself and in Him.”


The inspiration was for a type of ‘advert’ for God’s love, and how it has been in my experience. I made that one change, I invited God into my life and all the promises in my advert have come true, and a new
adventure I began indeed.”


A New Thing

“Forget the former things; do not dwell on the past. See, I am doing a new thing! Now it springs up; do you not perceive it? I am making a way in the wilderness and streams in the wasteland.” Isaiah 43:18-19


“I was reminded when we come to the cross there is a shadow in which we stand.  In the shadow we fall asking for God’s forgiveness of our sins. As we rise from the shadow cleansed from all unrighteousness, we have been made New.  A New Beginning.”


“I found the topic from this evening very powerful and fitting for the time I find myself in.  On Ash Wednesday, the Lord prompted me to resign from my job as a new season will start in our (my husband and my) lives. In the Bible the number 40 has a significant meaning and after 40 days in the wilderness, 40 days of rain, 40 days in the desert before the crucifixion etc., new beginnings took place. I counted my days from Ash Wednesday till the last day at work and these are also 40 days. This was a confirmation that God has something new for me / us in store. I can’t wait to see what it is but like the verse from a worship song I was reminded of (at the bottom of my painting) says: “I don’t know where this is going, but I know WHO holds my hand. The new shoot resembles my new beginning and new season in life.”



“My picture portrays the journey through the rut of lies I’d believed, the wounds, anger, and shame before I met the Lord. It continues until I choose to accept it’s OK to have these feelings. Jesus asks me to forgive anyone who’s hurt me, and then express the emotions in a godly way. Then He is able to bring healing to my spirit, soul and body.”


“I sensed whilst colouring I had a choice whether to open myself to receive and allow God to ‘do a new thing’. So, the letting go is part of learning to receive. I had recently connected to my heart’s desire to want to let go of constructs, walls, and controls. This was such an encouragement and beginning of change to make room for the new. Learning to receive is a most profound step to let God soothe the hurting dry places.”


“It was such a relief not to have to “perform”, as I did not have the capacity for that. But just to be! And to express on the page what I experienced God saying to me. It was such a safe space to be with him. It really blessed me to be reminded I can exchange all my burdens for His rest and peace. He is the great exchanger.”


“I was reminded of almond blossom in the creativity time and the words in Jeremiah 1:11-12 ‘I will watch over My Word to perform it’ A reminder that God sees and hears us, His timing is perfect and the promise of new life -spring – in the blossom around us.”
