Synergy: Personal updates about what God is doing in my life.

The Shifting: God’s been shifting me, lately, and addressing long standing trouble spots for me in my life, specifically in the areas of identity, thinking/fears, disorder/chaos, and setting boundaries. I believe He’s doing this within his church body; addressing our trouble spots. In particular, He has been addressing my tendency to strive and my rejectionContinue reading “Synergy: Personal updates about what God is doing in my life.”

Art process, more layers: Golden Healing, Part 3

Well, I thought of a name for this painting I’ve been working on since Weds. It seems odd to keep posting art updates for an art piece that doesn’t have a title yet.

Change is Here

I did most of this last night and added the word, “change” to it today. This was made in response to receiving new pan pastels, a set specifically made for portraits with 20 different colors. One of the gifts that I received when I was licensed as a minister on October 1st, was a $200Continue reading “Change is Here”

Surprise Beginnings

For some reason, this reminds me of an ice cream cone. “Surpise Begnnings” was the title that came to me. What’s on my mind is the subject of breakthrough and small beginnings. I titled it “Surprise Beginnings” because sometimes we don’t even notice those small beginnings, but they are surprises from God meant to encourageContinue reading “Surprise Beginnings”

If you have heard or read my testimony, you will know that I suffered extreme sexual abuse, maybe even some would consider it torture, at the hands of my father as a child. He wasn’t all bad, though, and the abuseContinue reading “Recompense Dream”
