The Stone Collective is a community making much of Jesus as we create art, photography, prose, poems or music that commemorate the wonderful things God does in our life. Based on the passage in 1 Samuel 7:12-14, each month we will collect Ebenezer Stones as a regular practice in the art of worship via our creativity. Want to join in on The Stone Collective?

Truth- I have been in a difficult place with my art for a while. Life stuff has overwhelmed me, and I have been stuffing it instead of processing and working through it. I am a little angry with God at the moment. I have been afraid to tell Him. With a little help from a friend, I have started to open the hurt place up.
These little collages are a part of the process. Yesterday, I made myself sit down and create uninterrupted for an hour. That has been a struggle for me for a while. I can usually give it 15 minutes and then I start to get antsy. For my hour, all I did was rip papers and glue them down, working on four squares at a time. No thinking is allowed, I just let the Spirit lead. I know God is faithful. I know he is working, I know I can trust Him. I just need to get out of the way.
