Yesterday, after reading a Soli Deo Gloria girl's post about the possibility that lies on blank pages, I thought about how often God speaks to me through art. When I open up my sketch book and allow my pencils to play upon the pages, most often God speaks through the journey of creating or through the creation itself. It doesn't actually matter, most days, if what I have drawn is actually considered to be "good" by anyone else because I know that it is pleasing to my Father. As the author of all creation, why would He not delight in us using our own ability to create? My latest fun as been to choose a scripture and draw it in a way that becomes tangible and real to me. Here are some examples:
Psalm 51: 10
Zephaniah 3: 17
But, sometimes, I just let my hand go and see what He reveals:
Through this piece, He spoke about structure and flexibility:
- Just because something appears to be out of rhythm, doesn't mean it can't belong.
- Structure can still be flexible.
- Perhaps flexibility makes structure even stronger.
Challenge: Grab a blank piece of paper, some pencils, markers, crayons, paint, whatever. Let your hand fly. What does He reveal? Please feel free to come back to this post after you have completed the challenge and tell us!
