The Painting: This is a commission painting... a large one. Layers of color slowly over three days and I am almost done. I have to layer in some of the lighter blues this morning and then it will be done. There is no impasto in this painting, it is pure oil and will take years to cure out.

The Thought: Powerful people are truly not very powerful, are they? There are those folks in your lives that play board games with a life or death attitude. They give new definition to "Playing to win." Often if they lose, the other players secretly smile and sigh in relief. You can even watch the others begin to band together as they are playing the game, trying to trip up the powerful person.

Do people like this in your life cause a negative pull on your emotions? It often makes us want to throw a monkey wrench into situations like an "I told you so". My dad always taught us to walk away whenever possible. Run away from thoughts of vengeance. Proud powerful people will sink themselves eventually, you do not have to do it for them. Remember the old adage, "Pride goeth before the fall"? Powerful people often forget who truly holds the power. No one can glorify themselves and the Lord at the same time.

Peter writes to us, "Humble yourselves under the mighty hand of God, that He may exalt you in due time." 1 Peter 5:6

His Grace provides for you today.


"There are six things the LORD hates, seven that are detestable to him: haughty eyes, a lying tongue, hands that shed innocent blood, a heart that devises wicked schemes, feet that are quick to rush into evil, a false witness who pours out lies and a man who stirs up dissension among brothers." Proverbs 6:16-19
