Tell Your Story!

When I saw this background,
I saw the funny hair,
and thought,
"Dare I?"

I did! 
She looks Thai!
Ephesians 1:12 reads:
" that we might exist
for the praise of His glory."

How do we manifest God's glory
in the everydayness of life?
NOT through a change of hairstyle definitely!
I think we allow God's glory 
to shine through us,
when we allow His love
to reach out to others through us,
when we are peacemakers,
when we are contagious
with our joy, faithfulness,
and enthusiasm!

Evangelization is not about 
delivering the right facts
(knowing bible verses by heart,
knowing who some 
obscure bible character is).
of God's mercy and presence-
a story only you can tell!
And that's another way
to reflect God's glory!

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!
and I appreciate that soooo much!

This week Random Generator
chose #2, Lea of
Read her interesting letters to
 her young friend Emily.

  4. I love your art! It's so full oof energy. Enjoyed coming to you via Beholding Glory. Blessings. x

  5. Well spotted...seeing the possibility of faces is an art in itself:)

  6. LOVE, LOVE, LOVE this, Patsy! I was just writing in my journal this week about the hurt and tension and guilt I still feel sometimes when I hear the word "evangelize." And the Lord reassured me with the very same message of your artwork here--it's simply about telling my story and about how it's all a bigger part of HIS story! Thanks so much for this encouragement today! Hugs, Sadee

  7. I love how you "found" the hair. I love both of your pieces.

  22. We make evangelism hard and frankly, unappealing. But when we do as you suggest, tell our stories of His grace intersecting our lives, well, that's a beautiful thing full of His glory.

    Your work never ceases to amaze me!

  23. Love your work and her hair is quite adorable, nice work.

  24. Her hair is so cute!!

  25. The back-story of a painting... or a life, is always essential for deeper understanding. When we take time to really see each other we praise God's glory.

  26. My deepest heart desire is for God's glory to shine through me. So much glory that I can't be seen, only Him. I love your definition of Evangelism.

  27. love this and love the message...dare to step out and make a difference by telling our stories.

  28. As someone ith impossible hair I'm glad you found that crazy hair and turned it into a thing of beauty!

  29. Love that you went for the fun hair!! Telling your own story is another way to reflect God's glory... love that, Patsy! :)

  30. Another pretty artwork, Patsy! Funny how you see things forming with the background. Love it! Thanks for blessing us with your artwork at Word Art Wednesday and hope to see you in our Challenges every week. Praying for blessings in your life.
