Making things is always good therapy when you are living with grief and sorrow. Especially making collages, because before you paste anything down you can write out all your negative emotions: tell that so-and-so just how you feel about them or write about your pain and sorrow. Then pray about it, ask God to help you deal with those feelings. Then paste over what you wrote and turn it into a beautiful work of art, knowing that God is also transforming your life into something beautiful too.
Here is an example of how I used the crayon collage papers I made the other day.
At first glance it might look like an easy art project, just gluing 2 inch squares on a canvas. But all those little squares represent hours and hours of work -if you can call it work, it’s more like play! Some of the papers I made with my sister. Some are art pieces that didn’t turn out, some were experiments and some were accidents. All the little pieces together make a beautiful work of art.
If we let God have control of our lives He will take all our miss matched pieces and make something beautiful of our lives.
So do not fear, for I am with you; do not be dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen you and help you; I will uphold you with my righteous right hand.Isaiah 41:10
For I know the plans I have for you, declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.Jeremiah 29:11
Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways submit to him, and he will make your paths straight.Proverbs 3:5-6
Your life will be beautiful again!
