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.”

Golden Healing, Art Process, Part 6

It’s coming along. I fixed the contrast problem of the rain by adding some contrast with some blue glazes….I used various strengths or combinations of glaze and blue on it, from more glaze and less blue to more blue and less glaze. I tried to blend in the dark portions with lighter glazes. That’s theContinue reading “Golden Healing, Art Process, Part 6”

Faith through the Trial

This painting, called Faith through the Trial, is an alcohol ink painting with gold and white painter pens added for embellishments. I made it between December 25th and 26th, finishing on December 26th. I decided to call it “Faith through the Trial” because on the 26th, the day I spent the most time making it,Continue reading “Faith through the Trial”

Hanging in the Balance

Prophetic word on 11/27/22. To some inside the church and outside the church: God says, I see you. I see you. I see you standing there, wondering, waiting, questioning. Wondering about my goodness. Feeling discouraged. Feeling lost. Feeling broken. Feeling abandoned. Feeling like nothing is enough. Feeling crushed by the forces of darkness. Wondering whereContinue reading “Hanging in the Balance”

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”

Full circle: Returning to God’s Original Design and Intent.

I’ve been hearing God speak the word, “Full Circle” since October 2021. God’s going to finish what he started and bring us back to His original design and intent. Some of us have gotten off track. Our nation has gotten off track, but God wants to finish what He started and complete full cycles. HeContinue reading “Full circle: Returning to God’s Original Design and Intent.”

Never Give Up

This painting titled “Never Give Up” only took a day or two to finish. This is an example of what I call my “emotional landscape art.” Its art I make just for fun, or to de-stress, or express feelings with no particular objective in mind. These “emotional landscape” art pieces are made intuitively and spontaneously.Continue reading “Never Give Up”

Just Be

Poem not sure of date, maybe January 2020. My heart be still. My heart be still. Sometimes you must stop. Sometimes you must be real. Not trying to impress anyone…Not trying to be anything I’m not… Feeling something down deep inside of me trying to come out. Longing for words, and forms, and shapes…longing toContinue reading “Just Be”

Hidden in His Glory

PROPHETIC PAINTING: Hidden in his Glory, 04.20.18, mixed media. Word for somebody: You have been through tremendous trials. The Enemy has been after you, trying to cause fear, trying to tear you down, trying to get you distracted…because he’s afraid of you. He’s afraid because he knows what God has in store, what God’s goingContinue reading “Hidden in His Glory”
