We Are His Artistry

Would a painter apply color without a vision?

Would a composer group notes without clairaudience?

Would a culinarian bake without a measured purpose?

Would an architect erect a structure without a blueprint?

Would a gardener plant a garden without first designing its purpose?

How much more would the Creator of all things give you life with a divine dream, breath with a purposeful plan, soul and spirit with an amazing ambition?

Only He holds the key, only He has seen the vision and only He has the power to accomplish what He has purposed...if we will only put our faith in Him.

His vision?

"And we know that all things work together for good to those who love God, to those who are called according to His purpose.

For whom He foreknew, He also predestinated to be conformed to the image of His Son, for Him to be the First-born among many brothers.

But whom He predestinated, these He also called; and whom He called, those He also justified. And whom He justified, these He also glorified. What then shall we say to these things? If God is for us, who can be against us?” (Romans 8:28-31)


  1. I really, really like this post. I'm feeling blind and deaf lately and slightly hopeless---wondering where all this is going........

    It reminds me of a Sixpence None the Richer song called Melody of You. It's lovely, too.

  2. We see through the glass darkly...but He has a vision and it will come to pass.

    On that day when they crucified our Lord, things looked pretty bad.

    But now we can see His vision.

    That we might live with Him in Glory...forever.

    Thanks, Dorci!

  3. Thanks, Gretchen. I know exactly what you mean. I can't remember who said it, but there's a saying that goes something like, "hold onto in the dark, what you learned in the light." Sometimes we just have to walk with faith, and know that God sees perfectly in the dark even when we don't.

    Steve, I was just thinking the other day about the day of Jesus' death and how that must have seemed like the worst thing in the world to have happened to him to those who loved Him. But in reality, it was the best thing that could have happened. And I wondered how many of the things in our lives are like that, too - they seem so terrible, and yet maybe they're the best thing that can happen.

  4. One of the many things I have learned from those i minister o F.A.I.T.H.: Fabulous Adventure In Trusting Him.

    He has given me life, more abundant and free, than of all my childish wishes.
    I would not have prayed for many of the things I have been given, yet I rejoice in them all.


Thanks for sharing!
