Seek God

 "Seek God." 
I know our hearts are restless, always seeking,
until we find God.
We were made by our Creator to seek Him,
and sometimes we look in the wrong places! 

"I am the Bread of Life,
whoever comes to me will never hunger,
and whoever believes in me
will never thirst." John 6:35

Seek God so we will never hunger
for things that do not satiate our hunger 
or slake our thirst.

In Mark 9:2-10, Jesus brings Peter, James and John
to a high mountain.
There He was transfigured before them.
Then a cloud came, and from the cloud came a voice,
"This is My Beloved Son. Listen to Him."

Do we believe this happened?
Or is it shrouded in myth clouds for you?
Peter in 2 Peter, chapter 1, wrote:
'For he received honor and glory from God the Father
when that unique declaration came to Him
from the majestic glory,
"This is My Son, my beloved, 
with whom I am well pleased."
We ourselves heard 
this voice come from heaven
while we were with Him 
on the holy mountain.
Moreover we possess the prophetic message
that is altogether reliable.
You will do well to be attentive to it,
as to a lamp shining in a dark place,
until the day dawns and the morning star rises
in your hearts.'

Yesterday at our community assembly,
one of the messages was that we should 
examine where our treasure is.
What do we give importance to in our life?

Do we listen to God,
and allow Him a say in our life?
Or do we follow the will o' wisp that
that is worldly wisdom?

Every week I choose one from my 
wonderful visitors who take the time
and trouble to leave a comment,
to receive an ATC or a postcard from me.

Last week  it was JoDee Luna from 
and she hasn't gotten back to me yet!
I love her sketchy journals! 

I love blog parties!
Won't you join us?

  1. Patsy, I saw your note on my blog. Thanks for your lovely comment and letting me know I won something here. How sweet is that. Your art today is very beautiful as usual.

    My e address is: if you want to let me know what I need to do next.
    Thanks. Lynn (getting my feet wet)

  2. He is the bread of life. I am guilty of eating other bread, stale bread, to find fulfillment. I am so thankful that He keeps coming to give me bread to eat.

  3. Excellent post and paintings Patsy!

  4. Patsy, "Bread" was one of my three words for 2011 and just last week God spoke Matthew 6:33 to me, "Seek..." Today? I studied the word "assembly" as part of my abiding time. Looks like we're on the same path. :)

  5. I love your art work! Beautiful! I have an 11 year old who is a budding artist and I can''t wait to show her your site.

  6. I love your art too and you are using it so beautifully!

  7. Excellent point about listening to God instead of making decisions based on whimsy.
    I thought I recognized your art, just from your link picture. You definitely have developed a signature style that has a very winsome quality.
    God bless.

  8. Hi Patsy,

    Really love how you wove in Scripture with your beautiful artwork...linked up behind you @ "playdates with God"...funny, how our pastor's sermon also touched on what we treasure...Blessings!

  9. This work is absolutely beautiful and inspiring. God always shows us the way if watch and listen--and that includes what we create!


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