His Mercies New, His Grace Abundant: Basking In the Faithfulness of God

Have you seen the sky today? I don’t know where in the world you might call home, but here, in my neck of the woods, the sky is breathtaking. Just typing these words, peering out the window at the glorious display that the Lord Jesus has put on outside puts such joy in my heart and a smile on my face. The Word says that “The heavens declare the glory of God,” and I have to agree. Seeing this evidence enables me to say it is truly well within my soul. “God is so mighty, and so big and so awesome, that HE sustains His creation with the DUST that falls from His feet.” Clouds. They are such marvelous things. The sky is a gorgeous aquamarine blue and is perfectly dotted with fluffy white clouds, framed with even whiter halos of light! Some of you may be thinking, “So what. They are clouds.” But do you know what the Word of God says about clouds? “The LORD is slow to anger but great in power; …

And He called a child to Himself and set him before them, and said, “Truly I say to you, unless you are converted and become like children, you will not enter the kingdom of heaven. “Whoever then humbles himself as this child, he is the greatest in the kingdom of heaven.…” ~MATTHEW 18:2-4 Often times in our lives, no matter our age, no matter our victories or triumphs, we find ourselves in a place of uncertainty. Forces in the atmosphere have a way of coming at us out of nowhere, with the sole design to catch us off guard and to knock us off our axis.

No Greater Love…:Recognizing Pain Doesn’t Negate God’s Love

When I created this blog, I created it based off of a new light I had discovered within my soul while traveling through Europe. The thing about that light was that it had been there all the while, I had just…misplaced it. Since allowing myself to yield and to grow, and allow that light to truly shine, that light has shone itself, not only in my art but in my faith. Within my faith and walk with Christ, I have come to a place where all I want is His glory. All I want to know is Him and Him crucified (I Corinthians 2:2) and what that means for ALL of us. All I want to know, all I want others to know is that His love and His grace is His TRUTH is more than enough…even, no, ESPECIALLY when it hurts! But just like that light within me, the one I discovered on my journey, the one I had to let shine, so too must I allow Christ to shine they way HE sees …

The Love of the Savior
