The Love Of God

I have started this blog at the urging of the Holy Spirit, it will be mostly writings that I feel bring us to a better understanding of the true nature of God the Father. As in anything, I ask you to weigh what you read here against the scriptures and the witness that is in your heart. This is also a continued effort of what my father started; to spread the true gospel so that you may know the fullness of the

Love Of God.

My Creative Place

My Creative place...
is not only my studio but it is the place in me where my talents and desires dwell.

 It is deep within me and very much apart of me, it is a part of who I am, it is a part of my DNA. So much of our talents we believe come from genetics and our nurturing while growing up. Some of that dictates what our talent is... such as singing, dance or some other art form. Usually we give our parents the credit, which is rightly so, but what about our father our Heavenly Father. 
The father who designed our DNA before the earth was ever formed, before the foundations of the earth, He knew you. Eph. 1:4
Some may not have had the nurturing to develop their talents or they are not even aware of the talent that lies dormant within themselves. Some may have what we call natural talent but just do not have the desire. 
I have heard many times from people, "I am not creative or I am not artistic". I think they just have not found their talent or creativity or they do not recognize their talent as a creative form. No matter what it might be such as writing or mathematics or teaching or... 
I believe we are a creative people formed after a creative God. He made us in His likeness and He is the author of all creation.  I believe we have a need to create no matter what it is and it is for one purpose...

it is to glorify God.

That gift or talent, God has given to every person and it is our responsibility to nurture it and let it grow and multiply through faith. As we trust God and reach beyond our comfort zone our faith grows and that is pleasing to the Lord.
 He is there nurturing you by His Holy Spirit and putting that desire in your heart. 
Your passion is your talent, your passion is your ministry. It comes from the Holy Spirit and it pleases God when we walk in that which He has given us in faith. It is giving back to Him what He has given us, it is glorifying God. And that is the only reason we are here on this earth...
So as I am painting my studio and preparing it for the work of my hands, I am blessing every corner and brush stroke to the glory of God. I praise and sing unto the Lord in that room and I pray for all that goes out of that room whether it be a sachet or a painting. 

I create for one purpose and that is that many might know the Love of God through the work of my hands, that I might glorify the Father.  And while I am doing this, I pray that my relationship with Him will increase so that I might know Him in a new way, an intimate way. 
You see your art doesn't have to have angels or crosses on it to be a reflection of the Holy Spirit... 
it comes from your inner being and through faith goes out to minister -
 it is up to God to do the rest. 

And whatever ye do, do it heartily, as to the Lord, and not unto men  Col. 3:23

There is nothing better for a man than that he should eat and drink and that should make his soul enjoy good in his labor. This also I saw, that it was from the hand of God. Eccl. 2:24

For we are his workmanship, created in Christ Jesus unto good works, which God hath before ordained that we should walk in them.   Eph. 2:10

Thou art worthy, O Lord, to receive glory and honor and power, for Thou hast created all things, and for Thy pleasure they are and were created.  Rev. 4:11

Whether therefore ye eat, or drink, or whatsoever ye do, do all to the glory of God.   I Cor. 10:31

Commit thy works unto the Lord, and thy thoughts shall be established.  Proverbs 16:3

And let the beauty of the Lord our God be upon us: And establish Thou the work of our hands upon us; Yea, the work of our hands establish Thou it.    Ps. 90:17

Whatsoever thy hand findeth to do, do it with thy might - do it while thou art able, and have time to do it. Eccl 9:10

Comfort your hearts, and establish you in every good word and work.   II The. 2:17

  2. Woo Who!
    I love this post1 It speaks to me at a time when i truly needed to hear it! Thank you my sweet!
    Hugs and blessings!

  3. This is such an interesting thing to think about..."your passion is your ministry" I am entering this new phase in my life (empty nest)..I contemplate what is my job now?...I have always tried to live by the verses you have hands are just doing something new now!
    Thanks for sharing from your heart!
    PS..I am enjoying watching the progress in your studio...that flooring rocks! Isn't it amazing how long it takes to get projects finished?!

  4. R.E.,
    As I was reading this post, I was thinking on a verse I had just read at...wait for it...Miss Gracie's House.
    ~Now go; I will help you speak and teach you what to say.~Exodus 4:12
    Coinkydink? I think not!
    Isn't God amazing?

  5. Your words show the Word of God is in your heart as well as the way you live it out in everything you think and do. Beautifully said and wonderful scripture to encourage and build up!

    My art stamp company is also grounded in the truth of the Holy Bible and in using the talents God has given all of us to glorify Him! Our company verse is..."May the words of my mouth and the meditation of my heart be pleasing in your sight, O Lord, my Rock and my Redeemer" Psalm 19:14
    It's a joy to meet another sister in Christ who is proclaiming her faith openly in her business and life.
    God bless!

  6. Beautiful post Rebecca. I couldn't agree more. I feel we all have a purpose and need to follow our heart to find where God is leading us. I just continue to do what feels right. Connie
