During the week that I was figuring out Come Alive and had come up with the painting for Don’t Forget, I Love You –God I was reading Jeremiah 29:13. It is a verse that I had read several years ago and had memorized for a few years. That week I referred to it often and still do quite a bit several months later. It is a verse that I have been meditating on. During that time of trying to seek God more, I had this idea for a painting. Over the years I had seen some photos that had a covered walkway that was almost like walking in a tunnel but with plants instead of concrete and stones. This verse kind of reminded me of those images. If we follow the right trail, we will find God. We need to remember to search for Him with all our heart.
I’ve come to realize this year that within my passion for creating art, the deepest passion is painting art that helps draw others into a first time relationship with Jesus or if they already have a relationship, that it would be deeper. Some might consider it an expensive habit, but it’s one that I’m working on having as a business to support my son and I. I’m trusting God with the business as I have felt Him lay it on my heart to pursue and have seen so much confirmation on this route being the correct one. I have also seen so much spiritual warfare slowing me down with this business.
