Glory Garden – #6 Lent Painting

This small 10 X 10 canvas holds much weight. In fact, as I prayed, painted, worshipped and followed Holy Spirit’s lead, I felt the full weight of Glory. He spoke directly to my heart and expressed His message through my hand and onto this canvas pouring out a specific anointing on this particular piece. These are some of the words […]

Blue – #5 Lent Painting

These pour paintings have been a messy, marvelous, new adventure! No paintbrush comes into play and I have very little control as to what the design turns out to be. I get to choose my colors, dump the paint on a canvas and tilt the canvas until the surface and sides are covered. I splattered a few more color highlights […]

Show Your Gold – #4 Lent Painting

If we look for dirt, we will find it. If we look for GOLD, we will find that too. Which filter is our normal go-to? I am having a blast playing with this new art technique, pour painting, and today’s masterpiece has layers of meaning. “Show Your Gold” represent some of my history but it also declares my destiny, your […]

Wonder~Full – #3 Lent Painting

“…Stop and consider God’s wonders.” Job 37:14 CSB “Wonder~Full” The straight line of the horizon How the sky touches sea. The wind that makes a whistle The breath that blows the tree. The symphony of sights and sounds Cascading from the clouds. The golden glow of Glory Makes the Master Painter proud. When ray and rain collide Light decides to […]

Pitchers of His Presence – #2 Lent Painting

I have always been a little outside of the box. I love seeing treasure sifted from trash and I get giddy when I see someone repurpose things in unexpected ways. Earrings made from old watch pieces, bracelets strung from guitar strings, hair bands out of old telephone chords, canvases full of paint with sheet music, bible verses and quotes Mod […]

A Sacrifice of Praise – #1 Lent Painting

This Lent I hear God asking me to get creative with a sacrifice of praise. Instead of giving up something, I am leaving something beautiful behind. I am going to exercise my creative muscles for His Glory every day this Lent. Today is day 1 and I am being obedient. I wrote for the first time in a while on […]

Driving Ambition

Chewing on Luke 20 and 2 Cor. 5 this morning. Jesus tells us to be aware of self-righteous leaders and not to follow their example. We still respect them as people and treat them kindly; yet He tells us not to do what they do. Man-made tradition is not always synonymous with God’s truth! Lord, please show me what this […]

Wisdom To Speak Or Not To Speak

“It is wise to think before we speak. It is wise to remember not every thought is meant to be spoken.” katiejwilson.com Ecclesiastes has always been a challenge for me to enjoy. It is full of great wisdom but also the unraveling of one who started his race strong, recognizing his need for dependence on God for wisdom, only to […]

Loyalty (A Poem)

Loyalty, it seems to be A trait we covet when we see. But Loyalty to Whom?   At the end of the day If I cannot say, that Jesus took my breath away; Then my loyalty  was nothing more than hypocrisy.   The Bible shows a motley crew, of faithful friends and schemers too. A loyal friend will not last […]

Trust Falling In Faith

I am currently co-authoring a book with one of my favorite friends, Kaitlin Chappell Rogers. We are from two different generations and we have hosted several podcast episodes of our conversations about everything under the sun. This book originated out of the overflow of these vulnerable discussions. In listening back to these heart-to-hearts, we realize the timeless and priceless value […]
