• God is With Us • Art by Diana Castillo • Mixed media on canvas • Mediums: acrylic, modeling paste, gels, mica flakes, glitter, Swarovski crystals • 20"x24" This was the first painting I created when I heard God clearly speak to me “Paint, Paint, Paint! I want you to Paint! I was without a job, I was looking for work and all I could do was wait for calls. I didn’t even know how I was going to make it. During prayer when I doubted, He revealed to me, that this is His gift and why would His gift not prosper? Immediately, I picked up the brush and got to work. When I first started sketching this I knew it would be such a beautiful and precious piece. I felt it in my heart. All I could think of is how good God is!!! I prayed and cried as I painted this beautiful image. This is a painting of my reflection in God. My Heavenly Father is my creator and provider. He's been with my son and I. We've been through really hard times and God continues to watch over us. God has never left my side. When I told Him it was too hard, He lifted the weight off my shoulders. He whispered "rest" when I was stressing and "almost there" when I wanted to give up. A single mother's struggle is only our problem until we lift them up to God. Let God handle your problems, single mother! May God continue blessing you!
GOD IS WITH US
When you pass through the waters, I will be with you; and when you pass through the rivers, they will not sweep over you. When you walk through the fire, you will not be burned; the flames will not set you ablaze.
The Lord is with me; I will not be afraid. What can man do to me? The Lord is with me; he is my helper.
Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid or terrified because of them, for the Lord your God goes with you; he will never leave you nor forsake you.
For I am the Lord, your God, who takes hold of your right hand and says to you, ‘Do not fear; I will help you. Do not be afraid, for I myself will help you,' declares the Lord, your Redeemer, the Holy One of Israel.
“He got up, rebuked the wind and said to the waves, “Quiet! Be still!” Then the wind died down and it was completely calm. He said to his disciples, “Why are you so afraid? Do you still have no faith?”
I prayed to the Lord, and he answered me. He freed me from all my fears.
