Where are the Prophets?

I have started on two canvases 
after I finished my Hold on to Hope and 

Above is a background for a second
Delight in the Lord.

Here is another work in progress.

Here are drawings from my journal.
Psalm 1 reads:
The law of the Lord is their joy;
God's law they study day and night.

In Sirach 48, it reads:
Like a fire there appeared the PROPHET
whose words were as a flaming furnace.

I am wondering where are the prophets of today?
In the Old Testament, God sent prophets 
to deliver a message that would make people think,
repent of their sins, and turn back to him.
The "fire" of their words were not meant to harm,
but to "burn" away wickedness in their midst
and bring healing.

I think WE are called to be prophets 
in our own milieu.
If we read God's word and delight in it,
we can bring others to know God
and bring peace, love and healing 
to a broken world.

  10. I love the pieces you have started here! That background is so pretty! I think you are right... we can each bring others to know God in our own ways. Thanks for sharing 'in the studio' this week Patsy!

  11. Love your art and it's refection of scripture. The final piece with the PROPHET is my favorite. The colors and textures are great. Happy PPF!

  12. Beautiful background, and I love the woman in profile in the second one; she's really beautiful

  13. I think you're right about the prophets. He doesn't use them in the same way He did in Bible times - or maybe He does and we just don't recognize them as being prophets. Maybe they are people we know very well. Something to think about. Thank you for sharing.


I am so glad you dropped by! You are a blessing!
