I do confess that I am a sinner, and I desperately need a Savior.
Lord Jesus, I BELIEVE that YOU alone died to save my soul from sin, and I accept Your sacrifice of shed blood through God’s redemptive plan as the only way for my sins to be forgiven and me to be saved.
I confess that Jesus the Christ is Lord, and I BELIEVE IN MY HEART that God raised Him from the dead. I ask You, Holy Father God, to please forgive my sins, come into my heart and life to live, rule, and reign there as my Lord, Savior, and Master forever. I want to be YOUR child and YOURS only.
In the Wonderful and Powerful Name of Jesus the Christ of Nazareth Who came in the flesh I pray and declare that from this day forward, I AM SAVED.
If you prayed that prayer and meant it, you are HIS forever.
God bless you, and welcome to the Family of Christ!
I got so carried away with a personal distraction yesterday that I didn’t give proper attention to the truth that my painting has really improved. This work is called, “Serenity”… named so by my husband. I probably would have called it Birch Meadow or something like that but, either way, I’m pleased with it and want it to have its props.
Oh, yeah… I’m definitely just a hobbyist painter – nothing even amateur level about my work – but I was once a not-so-good hobbyist, and now I believe I’m a good one. Not fishing, just stating truth IMO. Half of that status is having fun, right? In that case, I’ve definitely arrived! 🙂
Practice pays off when it meets God’s mercy and kind impartations. No more stick figures for me, folks… I’ve finally learned to paint AND enjoy it.
I’ve gotten some positive feedback on my art lately… but from works I’ve posted on a different blog site .
I wanted to make note of what a nice feeling it is to bless others with my art, especially since painting is a new gift to me from God. There’s blessing others and there’s the blessing I get from being appreciated. We all want to be loved, and God sees to it that we are; but it’s a nice feeling when people share their love, too.
