In Awe of You

There is a new album out by Jesus Culture, a Christian worship group, called Unstoppable Love. One of my favorite songs from that album is the song, In Awe of You. It really speaks to those moments in our lives when we just have no words for a situation, we can only stand in awe of what God is doing in our lives. Recently this has been the case for me. God is so awesome, working always for our good. He overwhelms me with His kindness.

Penetrating the Darkness

This painting was done the day after the Malaysian plane was shot down over the Ukraine. I know from experience that even in the darkest of dark days God's love is able to penetrate our hearts and make good things out of bad circumstances. Maybe He takes you out of your circumstances, maybe He makes you stronger, maybe the circumstances send you running into His arms. Romans 8:35-39  May His peace fill your hearts today.

Uncap the Love

I know that's kind of a weird title, but I was praying for a friend who is trying to write a book. My husband had gotten a word for her about "uncapping God's love" that's inside her and getting that down on paper. I used up just about all of my red water soluble crayon pushing hard to get all that love out! Sometimes when we feel blocked or stalled creatively we need to ask God why and just press through til things begin to flow.
