The Stone Collective is a community making much of Jesus as we create art, photography, prose, poems or music that commemorate the wonderful things God does in our life. Based on the passage in 1 Samuel 7:12-14, each month we will collect Ebenezer Stones as a regular practice in the art of worship via our creativity.

Sarah’s April Stone

Sarah's Stone April
Every spring I obsess over the wisteria. Did you know that wisteria is kind of like a weed? I didn’t grow up in an area that had wisteria so this new found “weed” of mine is fasinating. Isn’t a weed ugly? That’s what we perceive weeds to be, correct?
The beautiful wistera “weed” that grows all over the place here captivates my emotions and reminds me that even my weeds can be beautiful. Even the not-so-pretty things in my heart and mind and soul can be beautiful…
if I surrender it to the ever restorative, ever redemptive Jesus whom I serve.
For the Lord makes all things new, all things beautiful when we hand over to Him our weeds. God wastes nothing. He uses our good, bad, ugly and…weedy… if you will…for His good purpose. All of my past junk serves as valuable life lessons and growth points should I choose to accept forgiveness, change my ways and hand it over to Him. Even better, all of my past junk–my weeds–can encourage others towards Jesus when I share out vulnerability. Do we choose to surrender our weeds and live in JOY or do we choose to wallow or complain and live in guilt? I choose joy. How about you?
Here is a little watercolor that I made to remind me of the beauty of my weeds.

It is YOUR TURN to join in…

At the end of each month I will post links to my writer and artist friend’s blogs where they share their Stones and the stories behind them. The Stone Collective for February was filled with wonderful music videos, photos and art and blogs about big things God is doing. He is on the MOVE. Please feel free to click around on the links below and find inspiration to begin your own Stone Collection.

EACH MONTH you are invited to join in and {Make Much Of Jesus} by creating your own stone. There are two ways to share.


~Take a picture of your Stone and use #TheStoneCollective hashtag on Facebook, Instagram, Twitter

~Or…write a blog post and link up below. (There is also a blog button below for you to use if you like)

Too easy…too fun! Now…grab your paintbrush, your pen and paper, your camera…whatever and get creating!  **Feel free to leave any questions in the comments. :)

  1. I also love wisteria…. I love the “wispiness” and the color of it! I love how you compared our sins, our not so pretty parts of us, to weeds…. such a great way to look at everything :)

  2. I am from South Africa. I love Jesus and am a happy crafter.
    I would like to join the Stone Collective from this side of the world.
    Could you please give me more details how to join in.
