PPF: Are you a Prophet?

Time for another party!
And here is what I brought along!
My background.
Below is what I made of it.

"They shall wander in search of  the...
Word of the Lord."
Amos 8:12
How terrible it would be if we lived in 
one of those countries where we would be
imprisoned if we had the Bible in our possession!
But there are many countries like that even today!

There is a famine, not of food,
but of the Word!
In the book of Amos,
God said He will punish Israel,
for its sins
with a famine, not of bread,
but for hearing the Word of the Lord.
(Amos 8:9-12)

Amos said he was not a prophet, 
he was a shepherd!
We too may not feel
as if we are knowledgeable
or wise enough to be 
But if we pass on the Word of God
to others, build them up,
and encourage them,
(instead of talking about Tom and Katie
and Anderson!)
then we would be little prophets!

Thank you for all your visits
and wonderfully generous comments.
I know how difficult and time consuming it is
to leave a comment!
Sometimes it even disappears!
So as a sincere thank you for your kindness,
I thought of picking one of you every week,
to receive a little gift.

I sent  
Karen Smithey of Art in the Garage
her choice of ATC 
(she chose the one on the top left)
for her comment last week!

  1. You are a master with backgrounds. They tend to be an obstacle for me! I love how you start with the background... I think I need to try that too.

  2. How interesting! I never thought of being a prophet like this before. Good words :)

  24. Lovely pieces - one and all! Very inspiring post!

  25. When I think of all the Bibles and translations I own I'm filled with gratitude. Even though the words they contain are the "joy and rejoicing of mine heart," I fear I don't treasure them enough. This set of your artwork is beautiful.

  26. You had my attemtion with your title! I have never thought about what defines a always your work is delightful.

  27. What lovely artwork and such sweet words of encouragement. I refer to it as being missionaries for Christ to my grandkids - whether we are sharing with a neighbor, a relative or someone around the world. But how fun to realize that we are also joining in with the prophets of old to share the awesome promises of God in the Bible. Thank you :) Have a blessed Spiritual Sunday!

  28. Thank you for sharing God's word through your beautiful art work again.

  29. I can not even imagine living where we could not have a bible. Can not imagine. Beautiful pieces, Patsy. Love all the textues, great colors and of course the wonderful message!
