“Whoever dwells in the shelter of the Most High will rest in the shadow of the Almighty. I will say of the Lord, “He is my refuge and my fortress, my God, in whom I trust.”Surely he will save you from the fowler’s snare and from the deadly pestilence. He will cover you with his feathers, and under his wings you will find refuge; his faithfulness will be your shield and rampart.” PSALM 91:1-4 I tucked this beauty in the back of the gallery when we returned from being displaced by Hurricane Florence. It's been there ever since. Heading to our very first "Original Art Only" art show this weekend, I knew it was time to frame it up. While I was working on it, I recalled my thoughts as I painted the piece. The reality settled in deep knowing our gallery, our home, our life as we knew it could be gone in the blink of an eye. Why wasn't I worried? Should I be? Then it hit me... God's eye is constantly watching over us. He is our safe harbor, our calm in the storm, and His feathers cover us, and under His wings we will find refuge; His faithfulness will be our shield and rampart. It was the whisper I needed to hear. (Psalm 91:4 is hidden in the painting)
My paintings are a way of worshiping Him. May I encourage you to take some time to sit with Him listen to this music and worship Him. Reflect upon how He has cared for you. His eye is on you. Where is your eye?
