I came across this image and several others from two years ago. I was painting a huge 4 ft by 12 ft scene that the decorator wanted certain elements in.  This would be tough to do in this studio here at the lake.   The image shows the canvas on my easel, the images sketched on and the painting beginning in the background.  I will post the rest over the next few days.  

Think about your life in the same way.  We sketch out in our mind what we think should be and we begin filling in the experiences and the happenings around our visions.  In a painting things change constantly on the surface. Unpredictable smudges or color combinations often turn into the best things.  Too much control and you loose the soul of the painting.   

Does God view us in that sense?  He watches us get our ideas and plans together and we have the freedom to begin working toward them and doing things, but if it is not His way, things are never smooth.  We get those blotches on us and it helps us define who we are and how we deal with things thrown at us in life. These 'blotches' are sometimes the best things that can happen to us as well.

You are, after all, a work in progress. 


I pray that the eyes of your heart may be enlightened in order that you may know the hope to which he has called you, the riches of his glorious inheritance in his holy people,”- Ephesians 1:18
