Hi! I met Maxine on FB when I saw some of her gorgeous mixed media art pieces. I just love her work! She makes each piece unique- which is what captured my heart-and she makes a lot of crosses-and we all know I love crosses!
Well, earlier in the week, we gave each other a verse to be creative with.
I gave her
“For the Lord your God is living among you. He is a mighty savior. He will take delight in you with gladness. With his love he will calm all your fears. He will rejoice over you with joyful songs.”
When I saw what she did- I realized that it was Corynn. I believe this is a prophetic piece over my daughter’s life. She sings for the Lord and she is on her way to the life of a missionary. Her favorite verse is “love never fails.” Some of the words on the heart are “His love will endure….” I can’t read it all…
Corynn’s hair is long and curly and she has a heart for God. God’s love never fails and I am so thankful that He sent this message to us through Maxine and her obedient heart. WOW!
God’s timing is always perfect and always on time!
Wisdom is a tree of life to those who embrace her;
happy are those who hold her tightly.
This is the piece I did to the verse she gave me.
Owls= wisdom. The person is clinging to the tree-which is always represents Jesus in my paintings. The tree is purple because we walk in royalty. Wisdom lies within the branches ( the Word) of our Savior and when we take in wisdom we produce fruit and we live and move and have our being in the Spirit. ( the Living Water.)
Quirky? Yep! Fun? Yep!
It was led by God, just as Maxine’s was. It started out different and then changed to the owl and once I started- it just flowed. That’s how God works. Go with the flow!
Two artist’s called by God to reach the world for Him. What a blessing it is to come together and celebrate God’s Word through creativity! Thank you Lord!!! d.
God has been speaking to me about wisdom this week too…go figure!
Wisdom is a treasure….there may be a new painting on the way….
My child,[a] listen to what I say,
and treasure my commands.
2 Tune your ears to wisdom,
and concentrate on understanding.
3 Cry out for insight,
and ask for understanding.
4 Search for them as you would for silver;
seek them like hidden treasures.
5 Then you will understand what it means to fear the Lord,
and you will gain knowledge of God.
6 For the Lord grants wisdom!
From his mouth come knowledge and understanding.
7 He grants a treasure of common sense to the honest.
He is a shield to those who walk with integrity.
8 He guards the paths of the just
and protects those who are faithful to him.
