Worship the King

“Lift up your heads, O you gates! And be lifted up, you everlasting doors!
And the King of glory shall come in. Who is this King of glory?
The Lord strong and mighty, The Lord mighty in battle. Lift up your heads, O you gates! Lift up, you everlasting doors! And the King of glory shall come in.
Who is this King of glory? The Lord of hosts, He is the King of glory. Selah”

Psalm 24:7-10

I’m not gonna worship money, I’m gonna worship You, my God and King!

“You are my King and my God, who decrees victories for Jacob.”

Psalm 44:4 (NIV)

And after eight days His disciples were again inside, and Thomas with them. Jesus came, the doors being shut, and stood in the midst, and said, Peace to you!’ 27 Then He said to Thomas, ‘Reach your finger here, and look at My hands; and reach your hand here, and put it into My side. Do not be unbelieving, but believing.’ And Thomas answered and said to Him, “My Lord and my God!”                                          John 20:26-28

 

 

Everything is God’s

“The earth is the Lord’s and all its fullness, the world and those who dwell therein.”  Psalm 24:1

“Do not withhold good from those to whom it is due, when it is in the power of your hand to do so.”  Proverbs 3:27

Like the First Time I Ever Saw the Sunrise

Your beauty amazes me, Lord God. Looking at Your creation; everyday is new. Praise You, Lord Father!

“And he shall be like the light of the morning when the sun rises, a morning without clouds, like the tender grass springing out of the earth, by clear shining after rain.”                               King David in 2 Samuel 23:4

Receive Sight

“Jesus, Son of David, have mercy on me!”

Mark 10:47

“So Jesus answered and said to him, ‘What do you want Me to do for you?’ The blind man said to Him, ‘Raboni, that I may receive my sight.'”

“Then Jesus said to him, ‘God your way; your faith has made you well,’ And immediately he received his sight and followed Jesus on the road.”                             

Mark 10:51-52

“And it shall come to pass afterward that I will pour out My Spirit on all flesh; your sons and your daughters shall prophesy, your old men shall dream dreams, your young men shall see visions.”   Joel 2:28

“And Jesus said, ‘For judgment I have come into this world, that those who do not see may see, and that those who see may be made blind.'”

“Then some of the Pharisees who were with Him heard these words, and said to Him, ‘Are we blind also?'”                                                   John 9:39-40

Dear Lord Jesus, have mercy on us and give us spiritual sight, in Your Holy name. Amen

 

God, You did Something New Again!

Birds seemingly flying backwards, watching on a train. Beauty new everyday! Glory to You, Creator, Father God!

“For the earth will be filled with the knowledge of the glory of the LORD as the waters cover the sea.”

It is of the Lord‘s mercies that we are not consumed, because His compassions fail not.  23 They are new every morning: great is Thy faithfulness.” Lamentations 3:22-23 (KJV)

Layers

“For we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this age, against spiritual hosts of wickedness in the heavenly places.” Ephesians 6:12

“While we do not look at the things which are seen, but at the things which are not seen.  For the things which are seen are temporary, but the things which are not seen are eternal.” 2 Corinthians 4:18

“For we walk by faith, not be sight.” 2 Corinthians 5:7

Layers of atmosphere, spirits good & evil.  Pay attention to Him, our Father.  Agree with His Holy Spirit.  A recent meditation class wants you to empty your mind, but fill it with what?

“I know a man in Christ…caught up to the third heaven.” 2 Corinthians 12:2

“…he was caught up into Paradise…” 2 Corinthians 12:4

Wonderful Artist, Alex! Пленэр 2020 — Пленэр 2020

Пленэр 2020 – интервью Алексея Марковича журналу LIFE AS ART. Как долго ты занимаешься пленэрной живописью? Я довольно-таки часто бываю на пленэрах с художниками, но рисую в основном дома. Я много фотографирую, делаю наброски, но полноценные рисунки создаю именно дома. Я бы сказал, что это, скорее, иллюстрации, которые я затем использую для оформления своих рассказов […]
