Ultimate Journey, Right Where I believe God wants me.

Oh la la! the Seed of healing is
taking root.
The Journey Begins...
 2nd week of the
Bible Study

Titled "Healing Colors" 2008

By, Christ-Life Ministries
A little more information on
this Bible Study.

It appears to be more about
 the study of self discovery and
self deception.
Here is
a thought provoking question?
How come the Israelites couldn't
enjoy the promise land and the blessings it held
for His chosen people.
Slave mentality...
They could not conceive of
a promise kept.
They did not conceive
of
a new reality...
They were stuck in their old
thought patterns.
Can people in the world today really conceive of...
a job completed,
all work finished
and a dept free life.
ALL Sins...
 forgiven
on the cross
by JESUS!
PAID IN FULL
But wait, isn't there always
work to do?
Don't we need to earn it?

It has been freely given.
The promise land is yours too!
We are all His chosen children.
When will WE truly be lead into
the promise land of healing?
Well my friends, that is where I am headed.
I told you it was deep and a little scary.
For I am seeking to change my mind set.
Renew my spirit.
Renew my mind.
Be transformed into who God created me to be. 

Titled " We are all His"

Ephesians 4:22-24
"You were taught, with regard to you former way of life,
to put off you old self, which is being
corrupted by its deceitful desires;
to be made new in the attitudes of your minds;
and to put on the new self,
created to be like God 
in true righteousness and holiness."

Change from the inside out.
Resist the negative lies
I have told myself from the past.
Wowza!
Romans 12:2
" do not conform any longer
to the pattern of this world, but
be transformed by the renewing of the mind.
Then you will be able to
test and approve of what
God's will is- His good, pleasing and perfect will."

Well, Let me know what you think so far?
I will share thoughts each week.
Although it appears to be a very
personal and a tear filled journey.
It is a very intimate group only
2 other women and a facilitator.
Created to be a safe and loving environment.
We all believe God has put us in this
group for His will and purpose.
In His perfect timing.
We have felt the Holy Spirit there
with us and I have never felt
anything like it in my life.
So although I will not share my
whole past with you.
I will share what touches my
heart and soul.
Hopefully it will  inspire you to take your
Ultimate Journey.
All Gods Blessing, Deborah

Embarking on a New Journey

LIFE
The Ultimate Journey
Unpacking the Lies of self-deception.
Deep...
Heavy...
Stuff!

I have been invited to
Join a small
Group
Bible Study

I will be  discovering
The Lies I tell Myself
which hold me back and trip
me up.

I will be seeking true freedom
in Christ.
 I will be seeking to love myself
Like Christ,
Loves me.
Letting go of all my vices.
Yikes!
Learning Better Coping Skills!

I want to grow,
I want to release my faith.
I hope to thrive and not just survive.

I'll keep you posted.
And share some inspiration.

Another Stroke of the Brush..


This is a painting I did in 2006 on Watercolor canvas.
Never Titled it?

I"m just wondering.....
Asking YOU For Suggestions?
How do you ?
(Other Artist or entrepreneur!)
Have a successful ETSY shop?
Would you take a moment and
share some tips
and ideas with
me and my friends?
I know I would truly
appreciate it.

Have a beautiful and creative journey today!
Reflect the Glory of God today!

Psalm 92: 1-2
"It is good to praise you, Lord,
to sing praises to God Most High.
It is good to tell of your LOVE
in the morning and of your loyalty at night."


Many Blessing, Deborah

Fresh Paint from the studio...Fresh Water from my Soul...


New Art
Fresh Painting

This piece is another Acrylic and Plaster..
Mixed media
Title "Moon Light on the Water"
It is an 8"x10" canvas Gallery Wrapped
Sides are painted Black.
I just love how the plaster gives the
art & water
another
Dimension,
Texture,
Depth
and
Movement.
I am really having fun with this plaster technique...
It is a medium by Golden products.
This time I intentionally manipulated the plaster.
I had a vision in my mind.
I will be listing this later today on
ETSY

Fresh Water... For the Soul
I painted the ocean because..
I love the ocean, it calls to me..


Come and rest by the shores,
come and listen to the waves.
Come and you will find peace
on the edge of  God's vastness.
The waves come forth and
touch my toes and my soul.
The waves can be calm and
cleansing,
washing away the weariness
within my soul.
So cool and refreshing,
so alive and invigorating.
Reminding me how small
I truly am.
Reminding me how
BiG
 God IS.
For just as I can not perceive the depths
of the ocean.
It can be equally hard
to perceive the depths of Gods
LOVE.
From the shore the waters of the
ocean appear never ending.
From the foot of the
cross I can see God's Love
IS never ending.
The rhythm of the waves
remind me of the
rhythm of life.
The rhythm of
give and take,
the rhythm of
the storms in life and
the times when life is
peaceful and calm.
Water...
Water Gives Life
Water washes away the sins
of the world.
Water restores
the dying seed.
Jesus is the Water Of Life.
The ocean reminds me
of the peace
I have found in
Jesus.
And that my friends is why I love the ocean.
I hear it calling me.
I hear God calling me into
 his vastness of LOVE.
And God Loves YOU Too!

John 4:14 (New International Version)
14 but whoever drinks the water I give him
 will never thirst.
 Indeed, the water I give him will become in him
a spring of water welling up to eternal life."

Have a creative and blessed
weekend.
Remember God Loves You and He will
meet you where ever your at.
All you have to do is reach out,
His arms arms are open and waiting
Just for YOU!

I decided since Blogger was down
for a bit today
To EXTEND THE
GIVE A WAY!!!!
TILL 12:00 TOMORROW.
hurry up and sign up!


When we use our gifts and talents we illuminate Christ.
When we use them for His Glory we
are being transformed into
the Likeness of Christ.


As, Paul wrote,
"16 But whenever anyone turns
 to the Lord, the veil is taken away.
 17 Now the Lord is the Spirit, and where the
 Spirit of the Lord is, there is freedom.
 18 And we, who with unveiled faces all reflect
 the Lord's glory, are being transformed into
 his likeness with ever-increasing glory,
 which comes from the Lord, who is the Spirit."

The more we seek Christ,
The more we reflect
who He Is.

Consider being a bright
reflection...
Consider being a Mirrored
 image...
Consider reflecting all Gods Glory...

"Let your light shine, before men
that they may see your
good deeds and Praise your
Father in Heaven."
Matthew 5:16 NIV
