The Lord has me sitting with Him, the sketchbook, and pen.  I can’t sleep and I can’t think about anything but His love.  He has permeated my bones and I woke up HOT!


He woke me up at 3:18 am.

I was directed to these scriptures…Smile 

Psalm 31:8

and have not delivered me into the hand of the enemy;
you have set my feet in a broad place.

Proverbs 3:18

( Wisdom)

She is a tree of life to those who lay hold of her;
those who hold her fast are called happy.



I sketched a couple of things while listening to His heart from my nest of covers.

This is one of them.  After some time listening, I realized that this is the bridal gown of pearls.

I talked about my little friend,  Pearl, yesterday…she’s a gem and a jewel and every time I hear the word or name PEARL I see her eyes opened wide with wonder as she discovered who her Jesus was inside of her.  So precious, holy and true.  A gem in the bridal gown of Christ. 

This spilled out of the pen this morning…there are many pearls on the gown that flow from our Forever Love…each is a gem in the body of Christ…each one starting as a grain of sand and being raised by another who has been given wisdom, knowledge and grace.  Each needing the other and not one standing alone.  Over time and with much tossing, turning and pressure, a treasure is released into the Kingdom. 

This treasure is you…

…and….sometimes we don’t know our worth because we have been tossed around on the ocean floor of life. It is until the tumbling stops and the pressure is released that we can be freed.  Freedom comes by the Great hand of our Creator , Elohim.   He lifts our scarred and sometimes broken shells, and His hand tenderly wipes away our tears and pain.  He gently pries open our hearts and releases what He placed inside of us long ago.  That tiny grain of sand has become a beautiful pearl, a gem that has been placed on the bridal gown of Christ.  One by one, the treasures are gathered to await the arrival of their groom. 

The day is nearing and the time is closing in quickly.  There are many more gems to be raised, to be found, to be released and to be seen and heard.  They have a voice in the Kingdom and that voice is HIS.

Light. Life. Radiance.

You were made to SHINE bright for HIM.

You have worth and you ARE a treasure in the arms of Christ….

He loves you so much…
