behind the scenes: psalm 37

delight yourself
in the Lord
and He will give you
the desires of your heart.
psalm 37:4

this is a lifelong verse of mine and i will never forget joyfully reading it at my friend's wedding reception, as i saw it come true in her life.

lately, i have been reading through the psalms and greatly enjoying how very personal God is with us and how David so freely pours out his heart to his Lord.

when i saw this beautiful hibiscus last summer, i knew right away that i wanted to use it to illustrate this verse. i love the vibrant passion and yet delicacy that i think portrays one's heart. (one website i just looked up said the meaning is delicate beauty & consumed by love)

i love how full of life it is. so full of color and joy. and that is just one thing God puts in our heart.

then, today i found this great teaching on the passage by one of my favorite worship artists (you should all already know: christy nockels!) go check it out. listen closely. be encouraged.


and here is the final result of my artwork.

grace & peace,
