The Painting: I began layer on this last week. I saw flowers in pots and ladies dancing, but most of my buyers look for my equine art...so last night I began working to find the painted ponies... voila here they are. I truly enjoy the movement of colors in this new signature style and so far it has been exceedingly popular.
The Thought: Movement. When I think of motion and movement I instantly think of the world around me. When you live in the city of Dallas, there is CONSTANT movement of people, cars, airplanes, dogs, cats, birds, etc. There is absolutely never a quiet still moment. In the city it cannot be. In the country you face less people induced noise, but definitely nature at her loudest... birds, crickets, wolves, dogs, water and stillness.
I believe the loudest movement is in the pure stillness that seems to evade our presence. Have you noticed in your life how stillness and quiet is so loud? With that loud is of course movement, be it movement around you that moves slowly in the stillness, or movement of your brain as the squirrels run around in circles on the treadmills of your mind.
How do you stop the movement? How do you get to that meditative point of pure stillness? That is something to work on this weekend. Find time to mediate and be alone. As you sit and slowly breathe, notice the piercing noise of silence and the movement surrounding you. Begin to rise above it all to the level place of peace. That is where you will find God.
He is constantly moving circles around you creating paths and challenges to strengthen you. Meet Him in His swing of motion and bring Him to you at a peaceful time, not just at the times of need when you cry out in pain or want. It is delightful to meet with Him and match His motion and His step and begin to move as He plans for me... swinging in the same rhythm as He does matching perfectly His motion.
“Through these he has given us his very great and precious promises, so that through them you may participate in the divine nature and escape the corruption in the world caused by evil desires.”- 2 Peter 1:4
