    New Year, New Opportunities

    Happy New Year!

    2018 is off and running quickly…we are already half way through January! In a new year people become  expectant about hearing from the Lord and anticipating what they can look forward to in the next twelve months.  It is exciting to to hear what new beginnings and hope our lives will experience in the days ahead.

    I believe that the Holy Spirit is speaking to our hearts about His purpose for each of us in this season. Our purpose will become more and more defined as the year progresses.  As we surrender all to Him, this defined purpose will begin to change our identity. We will see more of His moving in our lives, our outlook, and perceptions of who we thought we once were. This will be characterized by our deepening relationship with Him.  He is looking for hungry people.  Hungry people draw attention to His favor and anointing.  This is a year of new beginnings, begin yours now.

    I begin each new year with a Detox…

    The detox I’ve used for years is the Lemon Detox.  I have more than enough lemons growing on one tree to last me a couple of years.  I really makes you feel good with energy to spare; great liver cleanse.

    This detox recipe is easy and the ingredients are readily available, but it only gives you the amounts for one glass and I usually drink about a gallon of it in one day. No other food (except coffee which I can’t ignore…busted)!

    Lemon Detox

    • 2 Tablespoons of organic lemon juice
    • 2 Tablespoons of organic, grade A or B maple syrup
    • 1/10th teaspoon of ground cayenne pepper
    • 10 oz. of filtered water.       Stir and enjoy.

    New Beginnings

    I’ve begun new paintings and creative projects, can’t wait to share them with you!  Coming soon!

    This is a partial snapshot of a painting I’m working on, continuing my “Angel” series, done with a pallet knife and finger painting. The big reveal coming.

    Prophetic Word

    Prophetic Word for March

    I’m feeling the impression to bring a word of hope today, inspired for this season.  Maybe it will encourage you.

    All these years the Lord has been depositing seeds into your spirit, from promises, from encounters, and people speaking into your life. They have been dormant for a while, perhaps a very long time. Perhaps you have forgotten or thought with discouragement that those promises would never come to pass, or you have begun to give up, that you have just been forgotten. Remember God’s promises are “YES” and “AMEN”!  Even if you don’t feel or know any specific promise or word given to you, begin to claim what God has promised in His word.  There are so many promises in the Bible regarding health, provision, children, etc.  His  word abides forever, there is no expiration date!

    Those promised and inspired words need to be watered with prayer,  believing God for them to take root, and an unwavering knowing that He loves you and always keeps His promises. Watering will bring them to life, even after decades of being dormant.  Those promises will begin to sprout.  This is the day that those seedling will begin to come forth bursting from the ground of your spirit, fulfilled in a way that you can not even imagine.  The  provision for those promises are from God’s own hand.  The soil that those seeds were deposited into is now fertile and crafted to give nourishment to what is to come. They will begin to bring forth fruit, bearing abundance not only for you but the world around you. Now is the time! Now is the time! Now is the time!  Water!

    Faith Art Journaling

    Journaling Assignments

    I have worked on this Faith Art Journal since the end of June with weekly assignments given by Erin Leigh @  Art by Erin Leigh and with Melissa @ Pink Paper Peppermints, both with websites and Etsy businesses.  They were offering free classes via Facebook and I welcomed some new ideas and tutorials that would help me develop my own journaling. Enjoy! May it inspire you to begin journaling and finding the heart of God for you in your life.
