Let the Fields Rejoice – 1 Chronicles 16
By Amylee Weeks
Today’s art is a response to 1 Chronicles 16, specifically verse 32:
Ascribe to the Lord, O families of the peoples, ascribe to the Lord glory and strength!
Ascribe to the Lord the glory due his name; bring an offering and come before him!
Worship the Lord in the splendor of holiness; tremble before him, all the earth;
yes, the world is established; it shall never be moved.
Let the heavens be glad, and let the earth rejoice, and let them say among the nations, “The Lord reigns!”
Let the sea roar, and all that fills it; let the field exult, and everything in it!
Then shall the trees of the forest sing for joy before the Lord, for he comes to judge the earth.
Oh give thanks to the Lord, for he is good; for his steadfast love endures forever! (1 Chronicles 16:28-34, ESV, emphasis added)
Amylee’s life verse is, “by the grace of God, I am what I am.” She believes whole-heartedly in God’s leading and his words speaking directly to her as she walks this life. She is thrilled beyond words that his leading has led her to where she is now – a licensed artist, creating art for the believer’s heart. In addition to creating and managing the artwork that she licenses nationwide, she is the owner of a busy Etsy shop (AmyleeWeeks.Etsy.com) where she sells her handmade artwork. Amylee is happiest at her colorful and full-of-fun home, with her Bible open – and you guessed it, CREATING. She lives in Norwalk, Iowa, with her best friend and husband, Ryan, and their two daughters (Morgan, 9 and Ashley, 8). In addition to Amylee’s creative spirit, her home is full of creations by her daughters as well as her husband, who is a master finish carpenter.
