Sometimes we just need to be reminded to breathe… Breathe in the Spirit… Breathe in His Power… Breathe in the Abundant Life Jesus promises. The simple reminder is hand stamped on a copper disc and hangs from a leather cord, 16″ with a 3″ extension chain.
The Story of the Collection
As the designer, this collection is special to me in a way that is hard to put into words…
In Isaiah 61:1-3, the prophet describes a people who have experienced the salvation, the freedom, the restoration of Jesus, but there is a purpose to that work in verse 3, “that they may be called oaks of righteousness, a planting of the LORD, that He may be glorified.” The way that we glorify Him is by the fruit we bear. For me, that was a life saving, life changing verse… I needed to be set free, forgiven, restored from the destruction of the choices of my past…. I needed hope that my life could still have purpose.
Psalm 1 also speaks of a tree… one that lives rooted in the presence, in relationship, with Jesus. Verse 3, “He is like a tree planted by streams of water that yields its fruit in its season, and its leaf does not wither. In all that he does, he prospers.” The living water is Jesus… if we dig our roots deep into the soil of His Word, of a relationship with Him, we will know the blessing of a life that is fruitful…of a life that has purpose.
The key to that relationship is the Word of God. He will speak to you, reveal Himself to you, in ways you can’t imagine. Let the tree theme of this collection remind you daily to seek Him, pursue Him through His Word and find the abundant life that He came to give us. If you need forgiveness, restoration, it is by the stream of living water that you will find that also. He is truly the giver of life, the creator of purpose… Seek Him and you will find life.
