This is my little girl, holding a painting God put on my heart two days ago. As I was praying, I just kept feeling led to paint. I had a variety of ideas, but this one is the first one that I created. I paint a variety of different things, in all sorts of different ways. This one, however was unique. How it was created was a first for me.
As I was gathering supplies, I kept feeling the need to put my brushes away. What’s this you say? Paint a picture with no brushes? Well, that’s exactly what I did. I created the entire painting (from the base coat on the canvas, to the mixture of colors, texture, more colors, etc) minus of the actual writing – all by hand. Think finger painting, adult style. This may sound odd to you. It certainly did to me. Equally as strange in my head, is that I felt as if God was directing me to use only my hands, and that these are the same hands that He will use to share hope and love. As I was creating what was shaping up to be a frame, I still could not decide what to put on the inside of it. Whether it was God behind my thought processes for sure or not, I don’t know — but what I DO know is that I had fun.
In my thinking and praying on it, I felt like Jeremiah 29:11 would fit perfectly. So, there you have it. My little hand-made creation.
