None But Jesus | Cece

FullSizeRender 2

Hi, everyone! It’s Cece and I want to share a song that’s been on my heart this week. This entry was inspired by this song from Hillsong.

None But Jesus – Hillsong United

In the quiet, in the stillness
I know that You are God
In the secret of Your presence
I know there I am restored
When You call I won’t refuse
Each new day again I’ll choose
Chorus:
There is no one else for me, none but Jesus
Crucified to set me free
Now I live to bring Him praise
In the chaos, in confusion
I know You’re sovereign still
In the moment of my weakness
You give
When You call I won’t delay
This my song through all my days
All my delight is in You Lord
All of my hope, all of my strength
All my delight is in You Lord forever more
Life isn’t easy. It has a way of battering us and dimming our view of the future. However, the Son is our Light. God can brighten up any situation and can provide a sense of security in the midst of stormy seas. Today, if you are struggling to feel close to Jesus, I encourage you to take heart. You are not alone. Every Christian faces the waves of uncertainty and loneliness. Don’t forget the Bible tells us that God has “loved us with an everlasting love” (Jer. 31:3) and He will never, never, never let us go. Jesus died so that we would never need to be parted from Him.
I pray everyday that God would help me to love Him more, no matter what my situation in life may be. I want to grow more like Jesus. To have intimacy with Him. To spend time with Him in prayer and the Word. I truly desire for “all my delight” to be in my Lord.
I hope that you are reminded and encouraged today how much God loves you. His mercies are new every morning. Each day we have a choice. If we choose Him, we will never go wrong. Let’s learn to choose Him in everyday in everything that we do.

I absolutely LOVED creating with this kit. It’s so beautiful and simple and easy to use. Unfortunately, this kit’s all sold out. But don’t worry, you can order next month’s kit and it’s just as beautiful as this one.

First, I wanted a nice background so I blended some blue and yellow ink to match this kit’s color palette. I used VersaMagic chalk ink and blended it with a round sponge applicator. (This blue has always been a hit or miss for me as it doesn’t blend as well as the other colors. I’m not sure if it’s because it’s darker so it’s more obvious or because my applicator is old.)

Then I knew I wanted to journal the lyrics to None But Jesus by Hillsong United and I wanted to emphasize the bridge of the song– “All my delight is in You, Lord. All of my hope, all of my strength.” First I checked to see what stickers I had in words, which words I wanted to emphasize, and which words I wanted to write out. I laid out all the stickers and words and journaled the rest of the song.

Last, I finished the page with some polka dot and cross washy tapes, some gold and blue heart stickers, and completed it with the beautiful denim bow.
