Are you God's Prophet?

Oh my, a new month is starting!
I cannot believe how fast the year is going.
When I was young,
time seemed soooo slow! 
Whether time is fassst or s-l-o-w for us,
we just have to stick to our regular routine,
keep our eye on our purpose.
Today is no different.
I start my day with reading the Bible,
and think about what I want to remember for the day.
If I do not draw the Bible verse,
by 10 am, I have totally forgotten it!
True confession!!!

From the background above, I saw an angel.

Last Saturday was the Feast of the Archangels,
Michael, Gabriel and Raphael.
They each have their own roles, 
as warrior, messenger, and healer respectively.

We too have our own God-given roles!
In Numbers 11:29, Moses says,
"Would that ALL the Lord's people 
were prophets!"

When we think of prophets,
we picture fire and brimstone,
miracles, a booming voice,
living in the desert.

Is that really what the Lord requires of us?
Should we not just be humble,
read His Word, act on it,
and SPEAK His Word to others?
Why is my prophet blue?
Because if we fill ourselves with His Word,
and DO NOT proclaim it,
will we not get blue (figuratively of course!)
in the face, from not giving out 
the Word of Life?!!

The verse above is from the Book of Job:
"The Lord gave and the Lord has taken away;
blessed be the name of the Lord!"

God wants all of us to be prophets.
Perhaps you have a relative
who needs to be encouraged,
a friend who needs advice,
co-workers who keep gossiping
who need reminders now and then!

It does not take much 
to be God's prophet!
And if we give to others
what the Lord freely gives us,
we will not only be blessed,
but we will bless others too!

Every week I choose one wonderful
visitor who leaves a comment
to receive an ATC from me.

(I know how much time and effort
it takes to leave a comment!
I love to visit but sometimes,
it is such a pain to leave a comment
because of all the word verification
and different passwords, etc.)

This week Random Generator
chose #51, Jo Ann of
She creates lots of wonderful cards
with Bible verses and positive sentiments.

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


  1. Love it! Job was the first book I read as a new Christian. Imagine. I would not recommend anyone start with that book. It set me back! No...but I still would not start most off there. It was a word from a "prophet" that I read that first. Blessed be His name! As always you are a blessing! Beautiful work!

  2. Blessed be His name!! I always love how intertwined your art and your faith are -
