Let’s create some bible birth art together! My love for Birth Art was initiated by Birthing From Within Childbirth course I attended during both my pregnancies. It is a 6 week program and every day they cover a different topic. One of those days is always my favorite! The day we do BIRTH ART!
It was only natural that my passion for educating other parents would bring me to take the Online Birth Art Course with Birthing from Within…now I too can facilitate this amazing journey for others.
As I am now expecting Baby Three any day now, I have been more and more drawn to creating birth art. For me it has had to include what gives me strength and courage, that is, MY FAITH! Here I share with you all my BIBLE BIRTH ART!
Set your mind on things above
“Set your mind on things above” Colossians 3:2
What this verse means to me is a short way to refocus my mind when the going gets tough. Like a self-check. Where is my mind then? Is it not on things above? Well if it is not then I have to refocus.
This bible birth art is hung in my entryway for 2 purposes. One, to serve as a constant reminder for both my husband and I. Two, to camouflage the ugliness of that electric box! HAHA! It has been bothering me for years and we have finally figured out the best way to cover it up!
Fearfully and Wonderfully Made…to…
“Fearfully and wonderfully made..””…to be fruitful and multiply…” from Psalms 139:14 and Genesis 1:28, respectively.
Why do I connect these 2 verses? As a Christian woman, connecting these 2 verses helps remind me of those exact two things: One, The Most High Himself with Spirit, created me in the most wonderful and careful manner. Two, for the purpose to be fruitful and multiply (among other purposes, let’s just focus on this one for the sake of the topic).
What I mean is this…I was created with all the abilities both Spiritually and Physically to carry a child in my womb and give birth too! It is within my power to TRUST and have FAITH in The Most High’s plan for me. I pray this for you too!
For the Joy…
“A woman when she is in travail hath sorrow, because her hour is come: but as soon as she is delivered of the child, she remembereth no more the anguish, for joy that a man is born into the world.” John 16:21
The JOY that comes after the baby is born is almost instantaneous! At least, after all the anguish is over, you know you can finally enjoy the new life in your arms. In preparation for birth, this verse is perfect! You can focus your mind that the pain will pass, the anguish will be over, and you can have that JOY– CLAIM IT!
He careth for you!
“Casting all your care upon Him, for He careth for you.” 1 Peter 5:7
You do not have to bear the burden alone. Christ came for us to Believe in Him and claim His care over us. When we are in the midst of labor pains we can be reminded to call upon Him and cast all of it on Him. He is Faithful to send us Spirit to comfort us and lift us up!
I will give you Rest
“Come unto me, all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest.” Matthew 11:28
Pregnancy, birth motherhood, LIFE, it all has its burdens. We all experience the heavy load of our labours. And there is this promise from Christ Himself! So let’s take it and claim it! When we are in the midst of it just cry out to Him and He will hear you.
In plain sight!
As you can see I am not a professional artist. I did not use the most expensive art materials. In fact, this is paper from Ikea, watercolors and markers from a craft store.
The materials are not what is important. What matters is: -To have looked for them yourself, – have taken the time out in a creative mind, -To go through the art process within yourself, -and to create with your own hands the images you will display, -ESPECIALLY To have the verses in plain sight!
I hope you comment and share you bible birth art!
I pray blessings over your birth preparations!
