We live in a difficult world where things happen that can make us feel hopeless. Sometimes relationships are hard. Some people work jobs that seem impossible. Others struggle with constant sickness or depression. Life can feel HOPELESS. The truth is though that with Christ we DO have hope. He promises to be there with us through all of the ups and downs. He is faithful. He promises us eternal life with Him. One day we will be face to face with Him and we will NEVER again feel hopeless. So take hope in HIS promises.
*This piece was done by Amy Tubbesing from Grace Outside the Lines. Here is a short bio from her. She is fantastic!
“My name is Amy Tubbesing. I named my business Grace Outside The Lines because my art is abstract, not staying within any specific lines or constructs. And because that is how God’s grace works. He reaches down and loves us right where we are, right in the middle of our mess. I was living outside of His will for years, but He never stopped pursuing me. I was born and raised in Plano, Texas with my two sisters who are my best friends. I teach Pilates full-time and my free time is usually spent with friends, family and painting. I travel when time allows. Colorado is my favorite getaway. I want to share His love with others, and I want to be obedient to use the gifts and talents that He has entrusted me with. Painting is a way of worship for me. It’s a time to rest and recharge. All of the colors are my favorite, and I love getting to see the end result of where my paint and brushes take me.”
