More on this love.

love.

it’s the joy of being lovesick, it’s the pleasures of loving You.”

Jesus, we sing songs about your love all the time, almost to the point where it’s become commonplace now. But what does love actually mean? What does it look like? Where did it begin? And why did You choose us, fickle and stubborn and headstrong humans who are so set on living life independent from You? And honestly Jesus, how do you deal with us? Any other man would have given up long ago. Any other man would have grown tired of their love not being returned, time and time again. Any other man would have left to go find a bride that would love Him right, would have created a new species in another universe and tried again to find a bride that would love Him as strongly as He does.

Any other man would have given up, but You are no ordinary Man. You are not subject to the hopelessness that permeates this world. You see what will happen and the unified bride that will be, and you still love us all that much more.

Keep Me Burning

I painted this during a set this past Thursday. I started this painting right on the heels of some major inner-heart healings only a few minutes before. So it was freeing to be able to express my thanks to Jesus for breaking down walls in my heart by painting.

I have this weird way about me when I paint. I never ever have a picture in my mind before I start or a certain color scheme. If I try to paint the image in my mind it never comes out right, so I stick to letting Jesus guide my hand and the colors that appeal to me at that very moment.

For this one there was this blood red color that stuck out at me, almost like the blood of Jesus that washes away all fear and doubt in me. I also picked this light metallic gold color and when I mixed them it created this really cool marbly effect that looked like fire and from there I went.

Once I was finished, (that’s another thing i do, I always wait till after its completely done to name it) I decided to call this one “Keep Me Burning” like the song Obsession by Chris QuilalaOh forever keep me burning with the fire of your love.” I want Jesus to keep me burning from the inside out so I’ll be a shining light to others.

I want to burn like God was in the burning bush, a consuming fire that never goes out.
