Another art post (ARcTic post) that I’d like to share-

I want to offer ARcTic posts as a way to promote talented emerging and established artists and to share God’s word visually through art. The art that I will feature may or may not have been created from a Christian-minded artist. I want to share it here; to appreciate the work created as well as the talent that the artist demonstrates, always from a Christian perspective.

Introducing…

Sarah Mason is the talented artist and owner of Emetsigns . Her hand-made wooden signs consist of an assortment of different bible verses. Custom signs can be made with your choice of scripture and color. Emmetsigns beautifully showcases the Truth – God’s word. Sarah’s love for God’s word is lovely and I’m thankful to be featuring her art on today’s ARcTic post.

Romans 3 Distressed Wooden Scripture Sign

This oak sign is painted a light blue with the lettering done in white, gold, brown, and magenta. I like the cheerful colors for this particular verse. Paul is telling us that the Christian experience isn’t always easy. While that much we know,  I like to be reminded of what Paul tells us suffering can do for us; How God uses the difficult times to make us the Christians He wants us to be.

We suffer but learn to persevere. We persevere and through our trials and tests our character is shaped. Hope emerges. (Romans 5:3-5) We look to God, we trust Him, we believe he has no plans other than good plans for our lives. (Jer 29:11)

” A season of suffering is a small price to pay for a close view of God” – Max Lucado

“For the word of God is alive and powerful. It is sharper than the sharpest two-edged sword, cutting between soul and spirit, between joint and marrow. It exposes our innermost thoughts and desires.” Hebrews 4:12

How many times have you heard a scripture, but never “heard” the scripture. So often we hear or read our bibles with our head and somehow it misses the journey down to our hearts. Can you imagine what life would be like if we embraced the TRUTH that is present in God’s word, if we truly embraced Him. As Hebrews 4:12 states, the bible is not dead, or static, or outdated, it is ALIVE and full of TRUTH. It is life breathing and life giving and so often we choose to embrace the lies of this world over the truth of God.

As I am on this adventure called life, God is bringing me to new, deep places with Him that I have never known before, and it is all through this book we so often dismiss as irrelevant. He is giving me a passion for His word and His truth that I never knew was possible. Along the way He has encouraged me to seek out truth, emet, in every circumstance, and let me tell you, it is NOT an easy journey.

I am a very visual person, so for me, to have a visual reminder of the truth of God in the midst of a trial is very helpful to my heart. And that has led me here, to creating artwork to hang in homes that points us back to the truth. The truth that is sometimes hard to hear, but yet always true, that life is just not about me, i am called to love when it is hard, i am called to serve, God is everything and in everything, and I could go on and on. Along with each sign will come a short commentary on the verse and what it means for you and your family when you hang it in your home. My prayer is that this becomes more than just artwork in your home, but truly a place where God works to change hearts and bring us back to Him, the ultimate TRUTH.
