It's been awhile! The long winter is over here in Alaska and I've been enjoying warmth and sunshine, spending time on the computer just has to wait!
But I have a treat for you today! I am honored to be one of the featured artist for His-Kingdom-Come! This is a wonderful group that has loads of bible art journaling, devotionals and other projects. I am one of the many who have and are contributing to the year-long Take Me Deeper group (scroll down for the featured bible art journaling and bonus project).
Here is a description of the DNA:Take me Deeper group at His Kingdom Come (even more HKC info at the end of the blog!!)
The theme for today's I AM statement is: I AM A Child Of God.
The verses I have chosen for this is John 1:12-13
"But to all who did receive Him, who believed in His name, He gave the right to become children of God, who were born, not of blood nor of the will of the flesh nor the will of man, but of God." (ESV)
How wonderful is that? We often know that we are "born-again" but do we really understand that God Himself has declared that we are now HIS children, born of Him, when we accept Christ?
DNA is often used to prove who our parents are. Since we are now God's very own children, born of Him, I like to image that we could see Christ's DNA grafted into ours, if we were able to view it through a spiritual microscope. The Jesus Fish fits perfectly into our existing DNA! I hope you enjoy watching me art journal this in my Crossway ESV Single Column Journaling bible.

Copic Multiliner SP Pen (available at Jetpens.come)
Faber Castell Polychromos colored pencils
Schmincke watercolor paints
I have also created a bonus project! Since God has declared we are His very own children, I thought it would be fun to make a birth certificate which God has declared us as His child! Click on the photo to download the certificate or make one with your own wording. It would be fun to include the day you were saved, the day you became a child of God, if you know the date. (I don't know the date when I truly gave my life to Christ, so no date on mine).
Laser printer ( I have an inexpensive Canon printer, approximately $60)
**You can also use a copier but not inkjet! It must be a copy made with toner for the foil to stick
iCraft Deco Foil
tan colored copy paper
Copic Multiliner Sp pen
I printed my certificate at 5x7. It is important to know that the foils only work with LASER OR COPIER prints. It does NOT work with inkjet printing.
