As a young man I used to like to play a game called capture the flag. Most of the time we played the game at night so the darkness would provide cover for our covert operations as we tried to get to the opponents flag. On some nights however, the moon would shine to brightly to provide us any cover. That is the thing about the light it doesn’t allow you to hide anything. Jesus said in, John 12:46 “I have come into the world as a light, so that no one who believes in me should stay in darkness.” We must always remember God is our moonlight showing us our way through the darkness of this world.
The doctor’s say a little wine is good for you but too much can be very harmful to your body. Life in the same. If we listen to the Holy Spirit as He guides us we will be ok because He will not let us delve to deeply into those things which will ham the body and the spirit. If we however delve into deeply, ignoring the Holy Spirit’s prompts them we fall into sin and lose our way.
1 Corinthians 12:7-11. But to each one is given the manifestation of the Spirit for the common good.
This is a drawing of a snow covered car. I decided to do it as a last hoorah for winter. This is a pencil drawing highlighted in pen and watercolor pencil. Like all other seasons of life winter passes and then we move on to a better place where we will see our Savior face to face. So as you move through life remember faith is not just a word it needs to be the center of our lives.
Most of us live our lives with a little stardust in our eyes dreaming of what may come. Thinking of the people we can become or of the money we can make. There is nothing wrong with a few dreams in life as long as we remain focused on what is important. Zacchaeus was man who had a certain vision for his life until on day he met a man named Jesus who changed his life forever. The same is true of us. When you enter into a relationship with Jesus your life changes. The stardust drops from your eyes and you see things as they truly are.
Yes I know it is not Easter yet but I felt like I needed to draw this picture. This little girl loves her chocolate. In fact she is wearing some on her face. This is a pen drawing highlighted in color pencil. The little girl like many of us is over indulging in the good stuff. The problem is if you eat too much chocolate it will give you a stomach ache. Life in general is like the chocolate that is why God warns us not be gluttons or over indulge ourselves because in the end we will find ourselves sick.
As a child i loved to go out and play in the rain. There is just something about being cleansed and refreshed by the water as it cascades over you. Dancin’ in the rain is a reminder to me what it was like when I gave my life to Jesus as His forgiveness washed over me reminding me how much it feels to be truly loved.
