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 in His Word and on their faith journey 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. In Christ, we also are being sanctified (set apart) through the power of The Holy Spirit and continually being transformed into His image with ever-increasing glory (Romans 5:1-2, 2 Corinthians 3:17-18).
It is an amazing and beautiful journey; filled with grace, love, and refinement as there is so much in store for you in following Jesus. As you walk with Him, my hope is that your piece from Bella Vine can be a tangible reminder of God's grace and provision. He will be with you always (Matt. 28:20).
"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 illustration of a branch receiving life from its vine. Bella means "beautiful"; Jesus Christ is our true, beautiful vine. In Him, we are deeply rooted and desire faithful persistence in following Him. He is our ultimate joy, hope and salvation. In Him, we have life and life more abundant (John 10:10), for He is faithful to produce fruit in each of us as we remain in Him.
May the Word of Christ dwell in you richly as you daily remain.
