Live in the Sunshine . . .
"Live in the sunshine, swim the sea, drink the wild air." Ralph Waldo Emerson
This is a painting I just finished this past week for La Jolla Gallery in California. I have so many beach photos from the Florida Coast and the Texas Coast, it is nice to have them for reference. Water is my inspiration and my calm in life. I can just imagine walking the beach with a storm moving in. Makes your heart beat a little faster. You just sighed in contentment watching the rain move in. God is there in the moment, just as He is here in this moment today.
Are you contemplating a change in your life right now? Are you burdened by something that seems to pull you down daily? I will reaffirm to you right now that God knows and He will show you the way. Paul Fletcher, as he became the newly elected Sheriff for our county years back, was asked by a friend before the election if he was nervous. His reply was, "No, because the outcome has already been written." What an awesome statement to sum up his faith.
God knows and He will show you the way. Doesn't matter if it is a loss of a job, the death of a loved one, the unexpected illness, the failure of meeting a goal, ... feelings of loss overwhelm all of us. Lift your hands to Him, up, open and extend them above your head. Be ready to receive what he does have for you. He will lead you to new relationships, accomplishments, opportunities and back into a positive direction. Just whisper THANK YOU in your life every day. That is what he wants to hear.
Be ready to grow with God today.
“Your attitude should be the same as that of Christ Jesus: Who, being in very nature God, did not consider equality with God something to be grasped, but made himself nothing, taking the very nature of a servant, being made in human likeness. And being found in appearance as a man, he humbled himself and became obedient to death— even death on a cross!” Philippians 2:5-8
