It is Thursday, kind of feels like Friday and it has been somewhat of an amazing whirlwind since Monday. Getting back into a groove is going well. This past week I had the joy of interviewing with my art mentor, marveled at God in the ministry, completed a commission and accepted another, and look forward to my first opening reception in an actual art gallery THIS evening.
Last Friday I had the joy of doing a LIVE interview with my mentor, Matt Tommey (you can listen to our time together HERE). It was our first time interacting “face to face”, although the information he
Why wouldn’t my heart be happy?! Connecting others to the heart, Word and Spirit of God is what excites me every morning! Connection and unity was the theme Monday at noon as I met with our Mayor, CEO of one of our regional hospitals, and advocate for leading by faith, to connect with leaders in our community to unite around prayer and community development. From there I prepared to meet with our Monday night Bible study group and minister with gals from past Rise Up Commitments, and saw God move uniquely in each of their lives. Rolling into Tuesday, I was grateful to minister with my daughters, separately, and then meet with a gal who recently embarked on her commitment journey. Wednesday, the Rise Up 2020 class met and trusted God to bring healing. Go Jesus GO!
While in the flow of the ministry of Holy Spirit, a uniquely fashioned work of art made its final formulation in my mind and I was able to capture. An Instagram friend reached out to me regarding a dream she had. A dream she wanted to capture & frame. Like each piece uniquely created for each
art gallery exhibition. As I thought more about it, the thought began to creep in, “It’s really not THAT big of a deal. You always make a big deal about small things.” Do you ever have thoughts like that? As the morning moved on, I turned that thought on its head, with the Word of God… Rejoice in the Lord always! Be thankful in all circumstances! If you are faithful in little things, you will be faithful in large ones. I am rejoicing over the opportunity to connect with others interested in art. I am thankful the Lord has orchestrated a way to creatively communicate His redemptive message to folks who may otherwise be closed off. I look to Him to help me be faithful with this opportunity He is setting before me.
Thank you for catching up, today. I pray blessing over your life and look forward to connecting with you again!
Six years after laying down the dream of being a full-time artist, God is handing it back. Spirit shined and polished, the artistic gift will be a conduit to creating a variety of works intended to usher in God's glory-presence in any atmosphere, encourage through personalized works, and provide peace in the market place.
