Artwork About Faith in Hard Times

When you're going through a difficult season, it can feel hopeless or even overwhelming at times. But, God is faithful. He'll never leave us or forsake us.

One way God comforts and restores us is through His Word. There's something powerful about simply displaying God's Word in our homes. In Deuteronomy 6:5-9, it's written:

"Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your strength. These commandments that I give you today are to be on your hearts. Impress them on your children. Talk about them when you sit at home and when you walk along the road, when you lie down and when you get up. Tie them as symbols on your hands and bind them on your foreheads. Write them on the doorframes of your houses and on your gates.

We believe putting up Scripture Art in our homes is one of the best ways to fulfill God's command in the passage above.

It reminds us on a daily basis of why we put our faith in God.

Here are some artworks we've created about faith in hard times:
