“Therefore God has highly exalted Him and bestowed on Him the name that is above every name, so that at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, in heaven and on earth and under the earth, and every tongue confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father.” Phil 2:9-11

This Week's Prompt
Create a journal page about one of your favorite names or descriptions of Jesus. (the poster above should give you some good ideas) Why is that particular name and/or description important or special to you?
The Lion of Judah
When I sat down to create a page for today's prompt, I couldn't get the "Lion" out of my head. My son and I have been reading through the Chronicles of Narnia (again) and it's such a beautiful picture of Who Jesus is and what He did. He is portrayed by C.S. Lewis as Aslan, who is a lion.
If you haven't read the Narnia series, I can't recommend it highly enough. Whether you have children or not, the allegories that C.S. Lewis created with this series will touch your heart and you may just walk away understanding something about The Lord that you never did before.
I used Hosea 11:10 "I the Lord will roar like a lion and my children will return..." as well as a quote from "The Magician's Nephew".
"Aslan threw up His shaggy head, opened His mouth, and uttered a long, single note; not very loud, but full of power. Polly's heart jumped in her body when she heard it. She felt sure that it was a call, and that anyone who heard that call would want to obey it and (what's more) would be able to obey it, however many worlds and ages lay between."
I love Jesus as the Lion for so many reasons, His strength, His majesty, His power, His fierce protection of those He loves, but mostly for Revelation 5:5, because He overcomes.
No matter what happens on this earth, in the end He conquers, and every knee will bow and every tongue confess that Jesus is Lord. ♥
The Lion and the purple "music" He's singing are a little sneak peek at one of my upcoming digital art kits! (can you guess what the theme will be?) I printed them out on photo paper and cut them out with detail scissors.
Some of you have told me you're not sure how to use digital supplies in paper art journals (called hybrid art or scrapbooking) and this is an example of how I use them most frequently. I just print and cut!
I feel like I want to add so many more layers, so this one may not be finished yet!
Be sure to visit Erin's blog to see her take on this week's prompt too!
I'd love to know what your favorite name of Jesus is in the comments and I can't wait to see what you do with this week's prompt!
Peace and Grace,
"Do not weep! See, the Lion of the tribe of Judah, the Root of David, has triumphed. He is able to open the scroll and its seven seals."
