Be of Good Courage {Art Journal}

courageous creative girl

I sketched this little creative girl while taking a class with Danielle Donaldson. Today I decided to give her some meaning, by making her a brave and courageous girl (prompt from Journal52: Week 24). I used watercolors to respond to the prompt for Week One of Summer of Color Four.

There are times for each of us, I think, that we need to summon more courage and bravery than we think we have within us. For me, that’s a reminder to call on God.

His Word says:

“Be of good courage, and He shall strengthen your heart, all ye that hope in the Lord.” – Psalm 31:24

That’s me. I hope in the Lord. So, I am to be of good courage. I am to be brave.

“God is my refuge and strength, a very present help in trouble.” – Psalm 46:1
