If I Paint a Wild Horse ....

“If I paint a wild horse, you might not see the horse... but surely you will see the wildness!” Pablo Picasso

My horses have always brought me strength... Between the pull of their power and beauty is a tenderness and a huge heart. When I think of wild horses running in the wind, I want to paint!  So it really touched my heart when one of my fellow artists commented to me on FB the following: 

God bless you, Laurie, in this storm of life. Be as strong as your wild and wonderful horses. Thinking of you." Sylvia 

God gifted these horses with stamina, strength, grace, speed, courage and most of all with heart. Painting them for the past 18 years, I fully understand the pure essence of energy... in not just the painting but in the spirit God has provided me.  I could not do anything without him.  

This morning when I began my prayer journal and I looked back at Wednesday and Thursday entries, I saw things like:

  • God guides us and guards us.

  • There are no accidents.

  • I have security in God.

  • Believe and Trust

  • Psalm 37:28 For the Lord loves the just and will not forsake his faithful ones.  Wrong doers will be destroyed; the offspring of the wicked will perish. 

  • Take your hands off your life.  Commit to the Lord.  (Commit is to submit unconditionally) NO WORRY. 

  • Rest in the Lord

  • Get strife out of your life

  • Corinthians 10:23 "Do not seek your own good, but the good of others."
