Faith Journey

Updated: Oct 9, 2020

Like black-blank paper, when we silence our soul completely, He stats to put beautiful colors in us that can create anything, everything. I love the way He reveals His heart and thoughts through art. Each step of creative process makes the invisible visible and opens deeper understanding to know Him and who I am in Him more and more. Here are three drawings that I used oil pastel on black mixed media paper.

Beyond the river

12”x9”. Oil pastel on mixed media paper. 2020

Like the black paper When I do not see anything You stat to put beautiful colors in me

Like the blank paper When I silence my soul completely You stat to fill me with Your will

Then I see beyond the river Then I go beyond the river I am overwhelmed by Your love

Create anything You think Create everything You desire Let my life be the filed of Your marvelous glory

“I am the LORD, your Holy One, The Creator of Israel, your King.”(Isaiah‬ ‭43:15‬ ‭AMP‬)


Ascend onto the mountain

12”x9”. Oil pastel on mixed media paper. 2020

Every step I take requires faith If I look back, I may slide down If I raise my head, I may be snow-blind This journey makes me humble It requires me to trust in You alone

Everyone says it is impossible If I look at myself, I may give up If I look around, I may be panic This journey makes me strong It requires me to hope in You alone

I ascend on the mountain by faith Till my hands become clean to receive Yours Till my heart become pure to love You alone Prepare me throughout the journey Let me enter into Your rest

“Who may ascend onto the mountain of the LORD? And who may stand in His holy place? He who has clean hands and a pure heart, Who has not lifted up his soul to what is false, Nor has sworn [oaths] deceitfully. He shall receive a blessing from the LORD, And righteousness from the God of his salvation.” (Psalms‬ ‭24:3-5‬ ‭AMP‬‬)


Sail into the unknown

12”x9”. Oil pastel on mixed media paper. 2020

You lead me to sail into the unknown I am a boat sailing before you There is no need

You become the water I lean on You become the wind I yield to You become the stars I look upon

Even though it is the dark night I am not afraid to go on You are more than enough for me

“Lord, I have chosen you alone as my inheritance. You are my prize, my pleasure, and my portion. I leave my destiny and its timing in your hands.” (Psalm 16:5 TPT‬‬)
