Holy Holy Holy

Art Journal note:

For this page, I was feeling like making a little bit of a mess, so got out my lovely acrylic paints, and chose vibrant red, orange and yellow colours that seemed to match the lyrics of the song. I got really stuck in and used my fingers to quickly blend in the colours a bit on the page. After clearing up(!) the page was dry enough to write out the song lyrics around the edge, and I had a go at a bit of gothic style calligraphy in the centre of the page, to declare that Jesus is Holy, Holy, Holy!

Tip: acrylic paints dry really quickly, always keep water handy for your brush and if possible just use one or two colours at a time to keep the paint from drying out in your palate. If you want to blend colours on the page, work quickly and use paint that is fairly wet in consistency. 

This page was inspired by the beautiful worship song ‘Holy’ by Matt Redman. If you haven’t heard it before or want to hear it again, do check it out here:

                 “Holy” by Matt Redman
What heart could hold the weight of Your love
And know the heights of Your great worth
What eyes could look on Your glorious face
Shining like the sunYou are holy, holy, holy
God most high and God most worthy
You are holy, holy, holy
Jesus, You are, Jesus, You are

Your name alone has power to raise us
Your light will shine when all else fades
Our eyes will look on Your glorious face
Shining like the sun
Who is like You, God?

Who shall we say You are
You’re the living God
Who shall we say You are
You’re the Great I AM
The highest name of all
You’re all You say You are

And You shall come again in glory
To judge the living and the dead
All eyes will look on Your glorious face
Shining like the sun
Who is like You, God?

       You are holy, holy, holy
God most high and God most worthy
You are holy, holy, holy
Jesus, You are, Jesus, You are

In Revelation 4 verse 8, we learn that in heaven the four living creatures, before the throne of God, day and night never stop saying:

“‘Holy, holy, holy

is the Lord God Almighty,

who was, and is, and is to come.” 

What an amazing picture. Whenever I read Revelation chapter 4 I am always filled with awe and wonder, and feel an intense need to join with heaven in worshipping God.

Heavenly Father, we declare that you are Holy and that there is no one like You – You are God most High and God most worthy. Your light will shine when all else fades.
Holy, Holy, Holy is the Lord God Almighty. 
In the name of Jesus, the highest name of all. Amen.
