Luke 24:51. His Ascension and Our Access

Now it came to pass, while He blessed them, that He was parted from them and carried up into heaven. Luke 24:51 Jesus' Cross is the door by which every member of the human race can enter into the life of God; by His resurrection He has the right to give eternal life to anyone, and by His ascension our Lord entered heaven, keeping the door open for humanity.  ...

The Only Worthwhile Goal

  No one can serve two masters. Either you will hate the one and love the other, or you will be devoted to the one and despise the other. You cannot serve both God and money. Matthew 6:24   When I was in high school I can remember how lost I felt about trying to figure out what I was supposed to do with my life. Big decisions with life...

The Unheeded Secret- My Kingdom Is Not Of This World

"My kingdom is not of this world" -John 18:36   I read a great devotional this morning from My Utmost for His Highest by Oswald Chambers. It gave me encouragement about something that I continually wrestle with in my daily Christian walk. The problem of endlessly running on the treadmill of life to try keep one step ahead of the next pressure or disaster that looms on the horizon.  As...

Battlefield Of The Mind- Inspiring New Art Gallery

    I am a personal fan and supporter of the ministry and teaching of Joyce Meyer. One of my favorite books is Battlefield Of The Mind that Joyce wrote several years ago.  I have read it personally several times and have passed along copies to my older children. Over the past several months I have been creating a series of new paintings that are inspired by some of my...

Art Spotlight- Hand Embellished Canvas Giclees

It has been a very busy couple of months as I've been working to fulfill some large Christmas orders of my hand embellished canvas giclees. Thankfully these orders have been arriving early in the season.  It takes a lot of work to essentially over-paint by hand each of the giclees with a heavy gloss acrylic gel medium. I add the brushstrokes as I follow the contours of the giclee's composition....

Faith Comes Through! Romans 10:17

So then faith comes by hearing, and hearing by the word of God.  Romans 10:17 Our faith gives us the hope and courage that we need to walk through the storms we face each day. If we fear it is because we have taken our eyes off of our great God who sovereignly rules over all time and space. Faith Comes Through. Romans 10:17     God's Spirit can guide...

The Well of Grace. 2 Corinthians 6:1 | Modern Christian Art

  In our work together with God, then, we beg you who have received God's grace not to let it be wasted.  2 Corinthians 6:1 Grace is the undeserved favor and assistance that is available at any time from God for his children. It is through our prayers that we seek and receive God’s grace. The older I get, the more I am learning to draw on God’s grace not...

New Christian Art- He is Risen! Matthew 28:6

  He is not here; he has risen, just as he said. Come and see the place where he lay.  Matthew 28:6 Jesus Christ was delivered from death and now sits at the right hand of God.  How blessed we are to know that our Savior defeated the grave and has freely given to us the hope and joy of eternal life. All men will die, but those who know...

New Art Added- Love One Another. John 13:35

  By this all men will know that you are my disciples, if you love one another.   John 13:35 The best way to tell people about Jesus is to love them as does. Reflect His qualities of selflessness and compassion. Give others the same mercy and grace that He has given to you. A great pastor once said that he would rather see a good sermon than hear one.   May...

Peace I Leave With You. John 14:27

  Peace I leave with you; my peace I give you. I do not give to you as the world gives. Do not let your hearts be troubled and do not be afraid.  John 14:27 This verse has amazing power for us when we set our minds to seizing God's word and appropriating the eternal peace that Jesus has given to us.  As the storms and waves of this life...

Under The Shadow of the Almighty. Psalm 91:1

  He who dwells in the secret place of the Most High Shall abide under the shadow of the Almighty.   Psalm 91:1 I reached a complete impasse yesterday on my job.  The two people who I needed to resolve a problem to meet a pending deadline were not available.  I had no idea what to do. I was helpless to get the job done by myself.  Have you ever felt helpless...

More Than Conquerors. Romans 8:37

  Yet in all these things we are more than conquerors through Him who loved us.  Romans 8:37 I recently painted this colorful new work after a time of reflecting over this past year.  Time seems to be going by so much faster as I get older.  I am learning through the perspective of time that just as the seasons come and go, life also ebbs and flows with seasons...

Eternal Life, John 5:24

  “Most assuredly, I say to you, he who hears My word and believes in Him who sent Me has everlasting life, and shall not come into judgment, but has passed from death into life.” John 5:24 Do you ever stop and think about eternity? As a follower of Jesus Christ I look forward to the day when I will leave this earth and join my Lord in His Kingdom....

My Kingdom Is Not Of This World. John 18:36

  ”Jesus answered, “My kingdom is not of this world. If My kingdom were of this world, My servants would fight, so that I should not be delivered to the Jews; but now My kingdom is not from here.”  John 18:36 While creating this piece I wrestled with what Jesus must have been experiencing when he spoke these words to Pontius Pilate the Roman governor of Judaea.  Jesus' disciples had deserted...

Do Not Fret- It Only Causes Harm. Psalm 37:8

"Cease from anger, and forsake wrath; Do not fret—it only causes harm." Psalm 37:8 This command is really easy to handle when our lives are running smoothly.  But how difficult it is to put this teaching into action when we are in the furnace of affliction, faced with trials and circumstances that we cannot escape.   Jesus never worried about anything because His mind was completely focused on fulfilling God's purpose and destiny for...

Inspired Invincibility, Matthew 11:29

"Take My yoke upon you, and learn of Me." Matthew 11:29 This painting was inspired by the moving devotions penned and published by Oswald Chambers in the early 1900’s. His powerful book, My Utmost for His Highest, continues to touch my life and draw me closer to Jesus. I hope that this art and verse do the same for you! Please read and meditate upon the devotional from My Utmost...

If You Have Faith

”So Jesus said to them, “Because of your unbelief; for assuredly, I say to you, if you have faith as a mustard seed, you will say to this mountain, ‘Move from here to there,’ and it will move; and nothing will be impossible for you.” Matthew 17:20 (NLT) Do ever think that God is searching right now for one person who will have faith and step out and stand for...

My Prescription for Anxiety

"Thine, O LORD is the greatness, and the power, and the glory, and the victory, and the majesty: for all that is in the heaven and in the earth is thine; thine is the kingdom, O LORD, and thou art exalted as head above all." 1 Chronicles 29:11 Wow is it me, or do we live in some very stressful times? Anxiety is not good for anybody. So much during...
