Paint Party Friday: Open My Mind

Sometimes it can be hard to understand
God's Word.
So I pray ,"Open my mind 
so I can understand the Scriptures!"
I don't think we can ever hope
to really KNOW God!
It's like an ant or a bacteria
trying to cope with the immensity of the universe
with its little brain!
But we can KNOW God's mercy,
God's grace, God's love.
That does not need figuring it!
We merely need to walk with Him!

  5. I am so blessed to know that you pray to ask God to open your mind to understand the scriptures, Patsy. This is the only way we can truly know Him and know His will for our lives. I have some dear Catholic friends (in Ohio) and their church (Father of their perish) discourages them from reading or studying the Word on their own. He tells them that they cannot interpret it on their own, so they don't read or study it, and I try to tell them they are missing out on such great JOY and comfort. It blesses me to know that you are blessed this way. I pray that they will know the comfort of His Word (on their own), and letting His Holy Spirit help them interpret His Word. I pray for them all the time. They are beautiful people, and I believe they are saved, but when I share verses with them, it's as if they have never heard it before. Perhaps different churches have different rules, I'm not sure, but nonetheless, I am so blessed to hear you say this. I pray for all Christians to know this great joy and comfort. Thank you for sharing and blessing me once again.

  11. I love your illustrations - of course, the source is very wonderful. A friend told me that every time I sit down with God's word, it is a special appointment with Him, which He knew about before I was born. So - I approach my time with God now as that special appointment knowing that He has some special understanding to give me. HPPF

  23. The first painting is my "favoritest" of all. Maybe because I love God's Word so much. That's my heart's cry, "Open my mind, Lord."
