Hey Slices! You guys get to listen to me talk about this weeks drawing. My other blog got the notes on the sermon. The art stuff is more open to interpretation. The Lord has been using it as tool to sharpen the different spiritual gifts in me, and CIRCLES is a place for me to be much more vulnerable, candid, and open. Open for encouragement, correction and everything in between. So here goes!
The Drawing before PhotoShop.
These are a few spiritual gifts illustrated. Something you should understand is that I love symbolism! and over the last 6 months or so I've realize why. It's because the Lord uses, and has always used, symbolism to minister to me, just keep that in mind. This is what the Lord put on my heart to draw on Sunday. Now what only took about forty minuets to sketch took a lot longer to understand. The deeper true meaning of the sketch was unfolded to me thought out the week as I colored it and thought about what I meant. A quick side-note on how the Lord works. I find it really awesome that on Sunday all I was doing was drawing a fun picture and listening to an awesome sermon. I had no idea of the true meaning of the drawing while I was drawing it. Which is awesome because it wasn't at all a distract from the sermon. Not only did it distract me from the message it allowed it to follow me around all week! Okay so back to the drawings; the Owl is wisdom, the Eye made of the flaming tongue [like Pentecost] is decrement, the flowers growing out of the heart is joy, and the key I'm pretty sure is a form of healing. At first it was difficult for me to give meaning to all of them. But throughout the week the Lord has given me more and more, like on Wednesday I understood the flowers represent Joy. And as I was typing this I looked up the spiritual gifts on my iPhone interwebz and the Lord told me the key is a representation breaking bondage or a spiritual healing. Then the Lord continued to show me that these are the gifts he is nurturing in me right now. I was hesitating to share that at first, but I realized that was fear. So I am choosing to be bold here, and I trust the Lord with that. Thank you guys for letting me ramble about what's on my heart onto this blog.
