On Fire for Him

ON FIRE FOR HIM

I was attending a worship service and doing some art.  During the service, one of the pieces of music being played was about us being on fire for Him, as in we were completely filled with His Spirit, as it poured out over us.  I was frustrated because some of what I was doing just was not expressing what the eye of my heart was seeing.  So I decided to do something very out of the box for me, and do a more modern impressionism piece, which I don't do very often.  And this is what came out.  Honestly, when I was done, to me it was "ok", but I wasn't super happy about the result.  I used several software programs, but started with a water color brush and later added the sun burst of His love showering down on the woman.  In case you can't see it, it's a woman worshiping the Lord and she's being overwhelmed by His love showering down on her.  It's almost like she's being "blown away" by the power of His Spirit.  Yet in spite of my disappointment, this pic received many comments that it personally ministered to several of those who saw my post.  As I was doing the pic, the verse you see is the one that came to my spirit as I was working on it.  The verse didn't seem to go directly with the pic, but I just draw and write what I see and hear.  Set aside time today to give thanks to the Lord, and ask Him to pour His Spirit down on you, as you see Him doing to this one in the pic.  I pray you have a blessed week this week as you're set on fire for Him and lighting fires of His Spirit wherever you go.  -Bill

I was having a bad day one day, so I decided to step back and do some art.  The Lord led me to this verse as I was working on the art.  He was speaking to me to relax, be quiet and let Him take charge of the situation, so I did.  I guess I can only speak for myself, but we so often want to take hold of the reigns and help Him out, as if we could in any way improve the situation.  He is the sovereign God who is timeless and knows the end and the beginning all at the same time.  We in our finite little minds think if we just take charge we'll get this turned around in no time.  But the Lord has the big picture and knows what will be best for us in the long run.  So I finally told Him here Lord...the reigns are yours...I'm going to rest and lean on You because I can't go one more step forward, You'll have to do this, if it's going to get done.


I used several pieces of software to get this picture to where it is now.  I actually pitched a couple tries and was going to give up on it and asked the Lord to guide me to get this the way He would like to see it...and within a few minutes...this picture as you see it appeared.  It's a reversal, with a water color brush that was also impressionistic.  I then applied a couple filters, including a poster filter.

If you're struggling with something today...trust your Lord...He is fully able to walk you through the fire and see you to the end...let go of the reigns...He's got you covered.  I enjoy interacting with my peeps over on FB, so feel free to leave a message here, over on my fan page wordimpressions.com https://www.facebook.com/Wordimpressions , or message me.  Blessings!  Bill


Church @ Sunrise

I was experimenting with this one.  I tried painting in water colors, but with an impressionistic brush and style.  I decided I liked the look and saved it.  As I was painting this one, this verse came to my spirit, but in song.  Many years ago it used to take me about 40 minutes to drive to my work where I taught first grade.  So in those days we had cassette tape recorders in our cars, so we could listen to our music.  I had a tape of several Psalms put to music that I enjoyed and as a result, over time I memorized several Psalms this way.  

I suggest you try the same by listening to scripture put to music.  Here's a great link to do just that...http://www.pilgrimsongs.us/download/alphabetical

Your Leaders Cause You to Err

I've only been working with digital water colors for a little while.  But I decided on this one to mix it up and do a black and white background with beautiful color blooms in the forefront.

I used a combination of different software programs to get the effects.  I first did a reversal and then layered the color tree over the black and white background, leaving the background slightly faded.  Then with a different program used a medium brush to create the blossoming tree.  As I was creating this, this verse came to mind, which to me seemed to fit the picture and our times.

These are times we need to be applying ourselves to Mt. 6:33 and keeping our eye on the Lord to seek Him first.  Thanks for stopping by, Blessings!  Bill

Stand Before Kings!

Do you see a man (woman) skilled in his works?


My morning devotional time on the morning I worked on this picture was wrapped around this verse in Proverbs. After my time, I decided to “doodle” with a picture.

This is a cubed pic with a couple reversals and several other effects added with drawing software.

If you’re trying to “take a mountain”, don’t fight your way up it, trust the Lord to become excellent in all that you do, and as this verse says, you won’t have to worry about coming before the leaders of the mountain, your excellence will propel you to them. So focus on developing your skills and the Lord, and He will take care of the rest.

Blessings!

Keys to Life

This is one of my first works I created several years ago.  It is a reverse with some lighting effects added.  As I was having my devotional and meditating on the passage, the phrase, "This is the key for your life.", stood out to me.  So with several software programs, I ended up with what you see here.


It reminds me of this verse today, "I will give you the keys of the kingdom of heaven; and whatever you bind (declare to be improper and unlawful) on earth must be what is already bound in heaven; and whatever you loose (declare lawful) on earth must be what is already loosed in heaven."  

There are certain keys the Lord gives to us keys of heaven, keys of life.  A key is only as good as the one holding it...if it's not used, nothing will happen Use the keys to unlock whatever has you "locked up", and free yourself to be all that the Lord made to for...find your destiny and be used of Him for His kingdom.  Thanks for stopping by.

Blessings!
Bill

I hope we bump into one another out on the net some where...

Child-like Faith




Child praying - “Out of the Mouth of Babes” I couldn't resist doing this design. Several years back I went to visit one of my sons who received training from the Iris Ministry in Mozambique. While there over a couple months one such child (Not the one pictured here) would call me out at around 5 in the morning, “Papa Bill, Papa Bill, you awake? Come out and play!” Needless to say I was up and out, ready to play. What impressed me mostly while there was the faith of these children. They had such pure, simple faith to be able to trust the Lord. I did a reverse on this picture, but decided to black out the background, so the child would pop out at us. Thank you Heidi, you've changed my life forever, for the good.

Blessings!
Bill
