Yesterday I posted two new paintings. I have been dealing with some junk in my trunk these past few days. I painted the first one yesterday morning, and titled it "Swirling Emotions" for that has been my inner world lately. Then I painted the second, I was not purposeful in the scripture I used. I just opened my journal and chose one.
Now this is the part I love. In my quiet time this morning I was talking it over with God. I admitted I needed to address my emotions, some anger about a situation. A phrase popped into my head - Deal to Heal - yes Lord, I have to deal with this to heal. Not stuff it deep down and pretend. Then He brought me back to the paintings. Swirling emotions, that is what I am feeling, and the second one, especially the phrase, "He'll place everything (in time) in it's proper place - everything false he'll put out with the trash." Okay Lord, time to deal to heal again!!!!
I just love how God talks to me through my journal pages, my paintings - but God does that, he uses everything the good and the hard stuff, to change, mold us into the true self he has planned for us.
May our eyes and ears and hearts be open to our gracious God, for he loves us with an everlasting, faithful, immense love.
