Journal Page: “Brushes dipped in praise . . .”

Brushes dipped in praiseI’ve been looking again at the power of worship, and what happens in the heavens when we praise God.

“[Worship] … is considered an attack on the enemy because it carries the Light of the presence of God.  When the Light of His presence goes forth into the atmosphere, it pierces the darkness, proclaims victory to the captive, heals the sick, binds up the brokenhearted and proclaims the year of the Lord!”

– Unlocking the Heart of the Artist by Matt Tommey

Did you know that art created as an out pouring of praise & worship can do that?

As I continue to think about creating art as a form of worship, I feel greatly inspired, & empowered.

With our brushes dipped in praise,

let our colors be the light that pierces the darkness.


A New Blog = A New Friend

The other night I was looking around Pintrest and I kept coming across pins from Visual Blessings.

I have been reflecting on art as a way to worship and pray for quite some time.  It’s a concept that has been rolling around my head, just kind of brewing.

When mentioning my thoughts to other people, I have found that it is an idea that many do not relate to.  So needless to say the conversations I’ve had on the topic have been few, leaving the idea to just set and brew awhile longer.  I am excited to meet another artist who is exploring art in relationship to spirituality and I look  forward to getting to know her better through her blog.
