Palette Knife Horse Oil Painting by Laurie Justus Pace

18 x 36 inches

1/2-3/4 inch thick paint from Buttery pulls of Oil!

The night sky still shrouds the earth in the early cool of the morning. It is not quite six o'clock.
One would think the city remained asleep but it never went to sleep. That is one of the things I dislike about living in town....There is a time to rest and from my earlier life I remember Blue Laws that kept stores closed on Sunday. Our lives have become stressed only because we allow them to be this way. Our lives go 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 52 weeks in a year for how ever many years God grants us on this earth. I believe we all need more rest. Rest in Him.

Since the creation of Adam and Eve, man has had this built in need to challenge God, challenge life and do it our way. Often our actions are in direct disobedience to God's word We have failed to recognize before us the tremendous benefits and blessings that are there for us to open our arms and receive, and instead we daily suffer the consequences of our own actions by heaping more on our plate to do and spending less time in the word and listening to our Father.

I acknowledge that God strengthens us through our trials and challenges. The hardest thing to do for me is to submit entirely to him. If we truly want God to bless us, provide for us and keep His promise to provide us with the desires of our heart, then we must be willing to submit to His guidance. Totally submit. Not just on Sundays or Wednesday nights.

"I applied my heart to know, to search and seek out wisdom and the reason for things." Ecclesiastes 7:25.

When you are facing a situation that requires decisions seek His wisdom. Gather the knowledge you can, but in the end seek His way. If you regularly read the bible you will have a clearer vision of God's plan for your life. He has equipped each of us with the tools we need. Do you know what is in your tool box?


“All Scripture is God-breathed and is useful for teaching, rebuking, correcting and training in righteousness, so that the man of God may be thoroughly equipped for every good work.” 2 Timothy 3:16-17
