A New Chapter Blog Hop...SEM

We are so excited about a new chapter at Scrapping Everyday Miracles! We have recently added a few new design team members and we thought a blog hop would be the perfect way to introduce them. SEM has fabulous prizes and would love to see you all participate!
Each DT member had to create a layout or a mixed media project that represents a new chapter in your life. Scrap Twist: Use book pages or book text on your project...be creative!

I decided to create a canvas with a very special Bible verse to me. Psalm 51:10 Create in me a clean heart, O God; and renew a right spirit within me.
Renew being the keyword for me. Definition of Renew: to make like new : restore to freshness, vigor, or perfection
I want the Lord to make me like new, I want to be the clay and have Him mold me, restore me. Sometimes I forget and I hold on tight to those negative things that binds my heart. Anger, Fear, and even resentment begin to hover over my heart, but I want to be like David who knew he had faults and still asked our God to renew a right spirit within him. I want to be cleansed, and have my anger, my fears, and resentments washed away.
Romans 12:2          
Do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewal of your mind, that by testing you may discern what is the will of God, what is good and acceptable and perfect.
So Lord I am asking that you clear my mind of the negative things and remove those that bind my heart.
Here is my project:
Thanks for stopping by!
next on the hop is
