Bella Vine started in prayer-filled conversations and quiet moments of conviction. In the summer of 2018, The Lord planted a dream in my heart to encourage women on their faith journey with His Word through intentionally made jewelry.
made on purpose, for a purpose
"Faith comes by hearing and hearing by the Word of Christ." Romans 10:17
Each piece from Bella Vine is inspired by God's Word: We believe that the revealed Word of God in scripture was written for our instruction, that through endurance and through the encouragement it gives, we might have hope and be equipped in righteousness. (2 Tim 3:15-17, Rom 15-14).
A beautiful thing about the Gospel is that it doesn't stop with forgiveness; we have been justified (made right in the sight of God) by grace and it is available through faith in Jesus to all who believe. We also have been sanctified (set apart) by the power of The Holy Spirit and are continually being transformed into His image with ever-increasing glory (Romans 5:1-2, 2 Corinthians 3:17-18).
As you walk in the newness of life that Jesus brings, my hope is that your piece from Bella Vine can be a tangible reminder of God's grace and provision.
He is for you.
In His grace, Michelle
"Abide in Me, and I in you. As a branch cannot bear fruit of itself unless it abides in the vine, so neither can you unless you abide in Me. "I am the vine you are the branches, he who abides in Me and I in him, he bears much fruit, for apart from Me you can do nothing." - John 15:4-5
One thing I love about this passage is the image of a branch receiving life from its vine. Bella means "beautiful". With Jesus as our true, beautiful vine, we believe there is life and life more abundant (John 10:10), for He is faithful to produce fruit in each of us as we abide in Him.
This business stems from personal abiding and I pray His Word would dwell in you richly as you daily remain.
