Mightier than Many Waters - Mixed Media

This mixed media project became much more than a creative unwind tonight, because it was inspired by the prompt for the current WordArt Wednesday #326 and #327.

The verse for this challenge is Psalm 93:4, and it says "The Lord on high is mightier than the noise of many waters; yea, than the mighty waves of the sea".

I love reading the devotions that accompany this challenge and the way that, while we do something as meditative as crafting and keeping our hands busy, Karen gives us something so much bigger and so much more purposeful to think about so that the creativity can actually bring us closer to God and more in tune with His will for our lives.  I am grateful for this.

I actually painted a couple of canvases of the open ocean last Sunday, but I'll share those at another time and tonight, since I already had the gray and white paint out, I started thinking about not just the waves but the whitecaps and the seafoam.  Mighty waters churn up a lot of it.

When I saw a bit of lemon bag netting I had laying around to recycle for craft use I started thinking about fishing nets and Jesus calling his disciples to follow Him.
Then I saw a little pebble and thought about Peter and the rock of personal revelation and testimony, upon which Jesus said He would build His church.  Next I decided to add some sparkling large glitter in a few places, like the scales of the fish which He prepared as supper for His disciples by the seashore, and of which the Lord said, "Lovest thou me more than these?"

I was out of scripture sentiments that were ready-to-go, so instead I found a generic sentiment that nonetheless I think does apply--especially the "Do more than is required, Care more than you have to."
How different the world would be if we would be more concerned about our own self-discipline and true kindness to others, instead of just trying to act "nice" in order to win passing approval.

This project also plays in the following challenges:
