The Cross Words Series is one of those sets of prints which came by request to be matched up with something of my choosing, to make a package of images which would be an absolute show stopper.  The request came from a graduated Senior from a Christian based school in the Eastern part of North Carolina – who happens to be my wife’s niece.  First came the speech/letter that she wrote in which to draw the Scripture verses from to arrange into a collage.  Next came the research time spent to build a “wrapper” so to speak around the thoughts and intents pointed out in the letter.  In the end, a complete set of prints would be built that have cohesion and celebrate the Holy Spirit working inside of the born again believer.

Scripture Lookup & Searching

The Scripture verses following were use in this order to convey specific messages including:

Don’t worry about things that haven’t happened yet.

“Be careful for nothing; but in every thing by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known unto God.”
Philippians 4:6 | KJV

Things might not always go my way, but God has a purpose for everything.

“And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to his purpose.”
Romans 8:28 | KJV

It gives me comfort in knowing that no one can harm me.

For I am with thee, and no man shall set on thee to hurt thee: for I have much people in this city.
Acts 18:10 | KJV

Seeking to Build Word Association

In order to gather the pieces for the set, had to put the verses back into context, then extract the trigger “word” so to speak, which could then be used to build a beginning and ending for the set.  The set of words are presented in the following list:

  • Stand
  • Requests
  • Together
  • Peace
  • Faith

Finally, by adding these in units, images could be sought out to compliment them, which this set can set apart, but are meant to be placed together for the full impact of meaning and color array.
