Destiny

It has been some time since I posted, due to the fact that I have been busy writing.

My own book!

It has taken me a long time to accomplish this task, and I’m exhausted. It comprises my testimony and 30 weekly or daily devotionals.

I hope to have it available by end June. Below is an excerpt :

God’s Presence in the Arts ~ 1 . . .

Joshua 24:15

This painting is one of the eleven that I painted last year 2020. I have been inspired in recent years to paint worship songs. The one above was inspired by Joshua Aaron’s song ‘You Are Holy’. It is from Joshua 24:15 ~

“And if it is disagreeable in your sight to serve the Lord, choose for yourselves today whom you will serve: whether the gods which your fathers served which were beyond the River, or the gods of the Amorites in whose land you are living; but as for me and my house, we will serve the Lord.”

It is a declaration I make every morning over my family and for those for whom I am praying. In this time of uncertainty that has come upon us, it is so critical that we seek God with all our hearts, for He is the only one who can save.

As Christians, we have talked about the end times as described in Daniel, the Gospels and Revelation, to name a few references, but I don’t think we ever seriously saw ourselves in those times. Well, many Christians today, myself included, are convinced that we are now in the last days of the last days. In other words, if our existence could be measured pertaining to a clock, then I’m pretty convinced we are at one miniute to midnight.

All that is happening in the world, such as the wars and rumours of wars, rioting around the globe, authorities attempting to dehumanize us by forcing opinions on us, wanting to mandate inoculations and what we put into our bodies and so much more, are symptoms of a world in decline.

We need to decide which god we are going to serve: the god of humanism and worldliness and couldn’t-care-less-about-anyone-else-but-myself, or the God who made us and the whole universe. He knows what He is doing and often uses the bad things that happen to us to get our attention, so that we will return to Him, or maybe come to Him for the first time.

There really is a Devil, and he wreaks havoc upon this fallen world with his lies, hatred, deceptions and delusions. Our Heavenly Father is a God of love and He does not send viruses and destruction upon us.  But He does at times allow these things to happen, and doesn’t stop them, wanting us to call on Him for help instead of continuing in our own strength without Him.

Sometimes we need extreme circumstances in our lives to cause us to fall to our knees and call out for God’s help.

There are events yet to happen, according to the Word of God, that I would like to talk about in my next post, because I want you to be ready, prepared, and with me when they happen.

“I am the [only] Way [to God] and the [real] Truth and the [real] Life; no-one comes to the Father but through Me.” Jesus ~ John 14:6 AMP

Let everything that has breath, praise the Lord . . .

Praise the Lord! Psalm 150:6 NAS

I had a very quiet but lovely Christmas and New Year. I know that over the past year, I have not posted much, mainly because I have been on another project. But also, because, being a very introverted person, not much changed for me. I don’t eat out, because I have certain dietary challenges that are best dealt with at home. I do not like big crowds of peaple, and much of what I do requires solace. I’ve found it very difficult to voice anything concerning the past 12 months.

So, I just want to say now, that the Lord our God is sovereign, and He has all in the palms of His hands. He will make a way for each of us to be drawn to Him and His amazing grace and mercy. He will give every single one of us, every opportunity to come to Him.

My prayer every morning is that hearts will be softened toward God, that those same hearts will  seek only God’s Will in their lives, and that all would come to the knowledge of the Lord Jesus Christ, and the great sacrifice He made for us.

Turn to the One who gives us life and see what He will do for you ~

He will help you find a job. He will heal your body, your soul, your spirit. He will restore your broken relationships. He will mend your marriage, help you get out of debt, and much, much, more.

2021 is the year to “Seek the Lord while He may be found. Call upon Him while He is near.” Isaiah 55:6

After all, God’s word also tells us that ~

“At just the right time, I heard you. On the day of salvation, I helped you. Indeed, the right time is now. Today is the day of salvation.” 2 Corinthians 6:17
