PPF: Who do You Say that I AM?

Ever since I joined Paint Party Friday,
Fridays seem to be coming along more quickly!

After drawing Queen Esther
knocking on God's door,
I traced her on to one of my backgrounds
and started painting over.

I always start with flesh acrylic paint.

"Ask...seek...knock..." Mt. 7:7
Queen Esther's prayer in the Book of Esther
is beautiful, 
but I have one complaint.

"From birth, I have heard among my people
that you, O Lord,
chose Israel among all nations,
as a lasting inheritance,
and that you fulfilled all your promises to them,"
she prayed.
Should not she have had personal experience
of God answering her prayers 
and keeping His promises?


"Who do you say that I am?'
Jesus asked Peter in Matthew 16:15.
If we have a personal, growing
relationship with Jesus,
we would be able to pray,
"You chose me among all
to be Your beloved!
To be the apple of Your eye!
Thank you for answering my prayers
and for keeping Your promises to me!!!"

  12. I know what you mean about Fridays - I guess it's one way of being accountable and working at your art. I know it works that way for me. Queen Esther is beautiful. As always I love that your faith and your art are so intermingled. HPPF

  13. The first thing that came to my mind, Patsy, is that Esther (just like Mary the mother of Jesus, and all other women of the Bible), while they were used of God...they had their own faults and weaknesses. They were imperfect just like you and me! Yet, God was able to use them in a mighty way, just like He is able to use US! Praise God that He can take us, just as we are, and raise us up to do things for HIS precious Kingdom. THanks for sharing this with us.
