Bible Art Journaling: LEAVES: Job 14:7-9

Hello everyone!

I did this quick video a couple weeks ago but didn't get it posted here due to surgery I had.

I love the verses of Job 14:7-9.    This chapter is Job talking about how death comes to all men, trees that we think are dead can actually sprout new growth when the rain falls on them.

In Job's day, he was still waiting or the promises of the Messiah to be  fulfilled.   In our day, we have Christ, who has given us the promise of eternal life.  Death is not the end for us.  Life will sprout up in us again, through  Christ, much like the dead tree that sprouts when it is rained upon.    I just love that!

In addition to these verses, this was inspired by a song my nephew, Tanner Hotchkiss, wrote and sings.  This song and his album is available on iTunes and another site for android.

Please click here to be taking to the You Tube video where you can hear the song "Leaves" in it's entirety.
