A day we came together to fast and pray
And we all cried out to the Lord. God has given me an artsy bone recently, & I am trying to be open to that. (I usually do not know what to do with ART?!?)
So, I went to my room, closed the door, continued to hear the prayers from down the hall, and wanted to share this simple yet complex picture. To the eye, ya maybe it looks like a kid drew it, but God filled me with the Spirit, and I drew
with scriptures in my mind.
So, we were praying for the lost
The cross has Jesus drawn on as the RED HEART. Without His blood, shed for us, death would be eternal.
The greens and blues represent the world, and all of us living in the world, the black is the sin, that we are consumed by and if you see the bit of purple you might think Royalty. Yes, Jesus is royalty, and the greatest part is, God sacrificed his son, purely for us, he wants us to be stainless and pure and God sees us as beautiful children and sweet to his sight.
The Light coming down from the top of the picture is not accurate of the day of Christs’ Death, but 3 days later when He rose again, and God’s promise was fulfilled. Also, I think it’s the Holy Spirit living among us…
There are hills and mountains, valleys and sky…. all that is for us to know that with or without Christ we will have good days and bad days. We will be high on the hilltops and low in the darkest of valleys. However, with Christ, there is Hope in those valleys, and thanksgiving too.
The path to the cross is wide and so are the many paths in life…but living a life with Christ is not easy, nor will everyone be there. So the road is thick before the base of the cross; and its colors the same as the people there below.
The road at the base of the cross is very narrow, and like I mentioned, it’s not easy or for everyone. It takes discipline, life changing decisions, repentance, Christ in your heart, the Holy Spirit in your life, and God as your guide. Again, the yellow is knowing, that the cross, and Jesus are “The way the truth and the life…” Also, you can see that narrow path is surrounded by the blackness of sin and death. We can either distract ourselves as Christians and fall into the darkness, or we can stay on the path and lean on Christ.
Please comment, correct me, ask questions and remember to pray for those who you know are living in that dark, dark world. We are so in need of the blood shed on the cross, ask about how new life is possible!
All the glory to God
