A Comment That Made Me Think

Sonya, over at Sonyamacdesigns, had a really great comment about the picture in my last post, and I wanted to share it with you, along with a couple of thoughts of my own.

"…The
beauty of Gail's grapes is evidence for us all, in the lasting uplifting
power of the work of our hands. I'm so Thankful for her obedience to
our Father then, so you could share so that others may read and be
therefore obedient when HE prompts their spirits … Thankful"

Sonya, thank you for this thoughtful comment.  You know, our creative works are important, aren't they?  How many works or art, books, songs – have moved others to know our God, and to worship Him as their Saviour?  It's exciting to think that Gail's obedience to plant a grape vine has drawn others closer to the Lord!

I do pray a lot when I work on my jewelry.  But usually it's more of a panicked sort of "Lord, help me to finish this piece!" :)  I think I need to start praying that the Lord will guide me to make pieces that somehow reflect HIS glory and draw others to Him.

You have really got me thinking on this, Sonya!

Thank you so much for sharing your thoughts with me!!! ๐Ÿ™‚

Blessings to you all,

Alesha

  1. Hi Alesha –
    This is a great post, and am really taking it to heart. I do pray, thanking God for allowing me to be able to stay at home doing what I love to do: creating. But I don’t spend a lot of time asking Him to guide my creative process, even though I know He’s right there in the middle of it. No matter what I’m doing, I need to remember: it’s not about me; it’s ALWAYS about Him.

  2. I have been pondering this thought about how I can reflect His glory in my art. I have had trouble with that for some time. So have not been doing anything.
    I just read a really good christian book called the Creative Call. It has helped me alot with this. But now I need to just start doing my art again. Seems something always get in the way.
    Love the story about Gails grapes too!
    Hugs, Sharon
