See what kind of love the Father has given to us, that we should be called children of God; and so we are. The reason why the world does not know us is that it did not know him. Beloved, we are God's children now, and what we will be has not yet appeared; but we know that when he appears we shall be like him, because we shall see him as he is. And everyone who thus hopes in him purifies himself as he is pure. Goodnews Art
Many Christians are so busy and tired from their daily work, that prayer and worship often seems ore like a burden than a joy. Still it is trough prayer that we build our relationship with God, our great Father and Friend. When we enter into His presence through praise and worship, He transforms us, strengthens us and gives us new vision and hope. Only in His presence are we filled with new life, love and peace.

To set us free. To transform us. To heal us. To give us a new life, in His loving embrace. Jesus Christ is literally God Himself, the creator of heaven and earth, the master of creation, the Lord of all the heavenly hosts…Jesus Christ is God. He came to us, and He did something incredible. Something literally NOBODY had expected. No prophet, no apostle, no angel and no demon had expected this. Goodnews Art
I created this work of art, because this is how I have felt often in my life. In times of deep darkness or struggle, God came and revealed His unfailing love to me. His love is so strong that it can be overwhelming at times. In the midst of what we are going through, even like the crushing trauma of this lady, His love can reach us, and be a shining beacon of healing and hope. The lady wrote me the following:
We tend to think of ‘clutter’ as the stuff we set on shelves, stash in drawers, and hide under the bed when company’s coming. But what about our spiritual lives? Just like our homes, many of us tend to let our spiritual lives become cluttered with junk that takes up mental space, but doesn’t really add to our lives. Let’s talk about ways to bust the kind of clutter that takes up space we could use to deepen our relationship with the Lord.
We can rejoice, too, when we run into problems and trials, for we know that they help us develop endurance. And endurance develops strength of character, and character strengthens our confident hope of salvation. And this hope will not lead to disappointment. For we know how dearly God loves us, because he has given us the Holy Spirit to fill our hearts with his love. Scripture Art
