November @ the Studio was to create our best artwork as an offering – giving it freely to the person God has put on our heart. We prayed over the pieces the last night of the Studio – that the art would bless, bring joy, heal, and restore broken relationships - that was a powerful evening!
Below is an email from Karen, who participated in Nov @ The Studio and she mailed her art to her friend, who lives out of town. Be reminded that God is powerful, way beyond our imagination. Our creativity has kingdom value. We need to step into the creativity we possess, realizing that it’s part of our Father’s DNA. We are created in His image, so creativity is in our DNA as well. Don’t ignore it. Don’t’ say you don’t have any, that’s a lie from the evil one. Don’t push it off as “childish.” Jesus says in Mark 10:15, “Truly I tell you, anyone who will not receive the kingdom of God like a little child will never enter it.” Accept your creativity like a child excited on Christmas morning – it’s a gift from your Daddy and He will use it to heal, restore, deepen relationships with Himself and between others. If you don’t believe me, just read below how Jesus used Karen's artwork in her friend's life…and even in her own life!
Grace and peace on the creative journey
p.s. if you attended Nov @ The Studio and have a story to share, please email it to me!
My friend recieved her photograph yesterday. I think it is so cool that she is going to take it to treatment with her. I am so excited to see what doors of conversation God will open up when she brings it with her; how He will work in the lives of others, patients as well as medical staff....the possibilities are endless, much more vast than my mind can even imagine. My joy this morning is hard to contain; I am just so honored play a small part in His plan, and to be a part of a community of artists at LW who have shown me that God can use the creative gifts of others to fulfill His purposes here on earth.
Thank you again for what you and your team are doing here at LW through this ministry. I am so blessed to be a part of it!
In Christ’s love,
