Wisdom

Wisdom, oil pastels, 08.02.22

This was made spontaneously and is part of my emotional landscape art. When I looked at it afterwards I saw an owl, so I titled it “Wisdom.” It will be featured along with other art in my PTSD workshop, Part 3 on September 24th, 2022.

Wisdom is always available for all who ask. We really need it, especially in todays tumultuous times where all is not necessarily as it seems. Don’t rely solely on your senses to figure out what is true and not true. Ask the Lord for wisdom and He will freely grant it to you.

Related scriptures:

If any of you lacks wisdom, you should ask God, who gives generously to all without finding fault, and it will be given to you. (James 1:5 NIV)

And he said to the human race, “The fear of the Lord—that is wisdom, and to shun evil is understanding.” (Job 28:28 NIV)

Do not forsake wisdom, and she will protect you; love her, and she will watch over you. Wisdom is supreme; therefore get wisdom. Though it cost all you have, get understanding. (Proverbs 4: 6-7 NIV)

The wisdom of the prudent is to give thought to their ways, but the folly of fools is deception. (Proverbs 14:8 NIV)

Know also that wisdom is sweet to your soul; if you find it, there is a future hope for you, and your hope will not be cut off.  (Proverbs 24:14 NIV)

My purpose is that they may be encouraged in heart and united in love, so that they may have the full riches of complete understanding, in order that they may know the mystery of God, namely, Christ, in whom are hidden all the treasures of wisdom and knowledge. (Colossians 2:2-3 NIV)

Therefore we do not lose heart. Though outwardly we are wasting away, yet inwardly we are being renewed day by day.  For our light and momentary troubles are achieving for us an eternal glory that far outweighs them all. So we fix our eyes not on what is seen, but on what is unseen, since what is seen is temporary, but what is unseen is eternal. (2nd Corinthians 4:16-18 NIV)

God-lover, artist, writer, art therapist, dreamer, minister. I see life as an adventure of overcoming and bringing light to dark places. I have overcome extensive trauma and sexual abuse and now I share my testimony and teach/preach what God has to say about the recovery process through both logos and rhema words. I love nature, dancing, worship, and all creative expressions. I have a heart to see families restored, curses reversed, and generational blessings released.
