Prayer for Spiritual Strength

Artist Kelly J

For this reason I bow my knees before the Father, from whom every family in heaven and on earth is named, that according to the riches of his glory he may grant you to be strengthened with power through his Spirit in your inner being, so that Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith that you, being rooted and grounded in love, may have strength to comprehend with all the saints what is the breadth and length and height and depth, and to know the love of Yeshua that surpasses knowledge, that you may be filled with all the fullness of God.  Ephesians 3:14-19

Read Proverbs 8

Written in the Stars

Artist Kelly J 

It was on this day 57 years ago, that I was birthed into this world. A world of so many possibilities. There was a time, when I wanted the greener grass on the other side, so to speak. I had goals, and obtained those desires that this world had to offer me.  Then I met and got to know Yeshua. He opened my eyes and heart to a whole new world. A world that instead of wanting more, I wanted less. I was moving backwards on the wheel so to speak. I was happier, healthier and content. The more I gave away and got rid of the happier I became.  I am to the point in my life and walk, that no matter what happens in my life, I will always be okay. That's living in Peace. I am so thankful for where I am in life. Everyday is a blessing!!!

Why God gave us Friends

Artist Kelly J

Why God Gave us Friends by Barbara Burrow

In His wisdom, God looked down the corridors of Time and foresaw the special needs of mankind's heart. He saw how often we would need someone to share our inner thoughts and motives, someone who hears not merely the words we speak, but our deeper feelings, for which there are no words, someone who knows the worth of silence and listens without judging. That's why God gave us friends.

He saw that sometimes we would need relief from the frantic pace of competitive living, someone with whom we could drop all pretense, who will love us, not for what we may one day become, but for what we are right now, someone who will close his eyes to our frailties and see only that which is good in us. He knew our hearts would sometimes be burdened with sorrow and disappointment and that we would need someone who knows just when to speak and when to stand silently by, giving us strength and comfort by simply being near. That's why God gave us friends.

He saw that there would be times when we would become tired and discouraged, and would need someone to encourage us to reach our highest potential, someone to cheer us on and bring us face-to-face with our better selves. He saw that there would be times when we would stumble and fall, and would need someone to help pick ourselves up and try again, someone who would teach us to laugh at our mistakes and help us find the rainbow after the rain. That's why God gave us friends.

God saw that we would sometimes have to take a lonely stand because of our convictions and we would need someone to support us when we're pursuing a dream, someone to humor us when we're impractical and to stand beside us when we champion a cause. He knew our hearts would sometimes burst with joy that must be shared and that we would need someone to praise us for our accomplishments and rejoice with us in good fortune, someone to increase our awareness of the beautiful in life. He foresaw our strengths, weaknesses our dreams and longings. and so God gave us friends, that we on earth might have a glimpse of the joy of heaven.

Children are a heritage

Artist Kelly J

Children are a heritage from our Father in heaven and the fruit of the womb is our reward. Like arrows in the hand of a warrior are the children of one's youth.  Blessed is the man who fills his quiver with them!

the Wolf and the Lamb will graze together

Artist Kelly J

I was driving and chatting with God today, and when His Kingdom is set into place, the animals will finally be free.  Today, they are so exploited, abused and killed in large numbers for our own greed. There will be a time when there will be no boarders or boundaries, no fences or walls. It will be like the Garden was so to speak. We will all live in harmony and peace with one another. Those days will be so awesome. Many things need to take place before that time. So, take this time upon this earth to make yourself ready.

Isaiah 11:6-9
 "The wolf also shall dwell with the lamb,
The leopard shall lie down with the young goat,
The calf and the young lion and the fatling together;
And a little child shall lead them.
The cow and the bear shall graze;
Their young ones shall lie down together;
And the lion shall eat straw like the ox.
The nursing child shall play by the cobra's hole,
And the weaned child shall put his hand in the viper's den.
They shall not hurt nor destroy in all My holy mountain,
For the earth shall be full of the knowledge of the LORD
As the waters cover the sea.

Learning to Listen and Obey God's Voice

Artist Kelly J

This drawing came to me, as I was thinking about when God taught me how to listen for his voice, and then to obey. One day my husband and I were suppose to go on a motorcycle ride with some friends. But, I got that unction in my Spirit, not to go. I was not sure why, but, I was seasoned enough in my walk to know, to listen. Later in the day, we drove to town and to make a very long story short. We picked up a man named Brian and his 3 dogs and drove them to their location, which would have taken them about a month and a half walking. It took us 10 hours driving them round trip, from 2 pm till midnight. But what an amazing experience to know we helped someone who would have had a very hard time in the Mountains and in all kinds of weather extremes, to have gotten to his location. They had already been on the road for over a month. Gods grace, got them there thru us, who listened and obeyed his will upon our lives.

Life is so Precious

Artist Kelly J 

God, our Father who is in heaven, places us within our Momma's womb for such a time as this. We are all meant to be born. We all have value and worth. This drawing shows forseps coming into the womb to get the baby, and the baby is saying "Please Momma, NO! this baby no matter what is a life. All life has value and should be born. Ecclesiastes 11:5 ~ As you do not know the path of the wind, or how the body is formed in a mother’s womb, so you cannot understand the work of God, the Maker of all things.

A Passion for Life

Artist Kelly J

Today, I got a call from a friend who is struggling. Her momma is 92 years of age and has always taken care of herself, cooked meals, fed her Horse, gone to town with friends, etc. The daughter is struggling to have to take care of her momma and had to make the choice to have her go into a nursing facility, due to things that were happening like she forgot to shut off the oven, or would forget and would regress in time to when her momma was still here. It's being stuck between a rock and a hard place, because she had to be the one to take away her momma's freedom, and now her momma dislikes her and the daughter only wants the best for her momma.

This picture depicts the momma and her passion for life, but now is controlled by a nursing place, meds that need to be taken, and because she also has sugar and loves treats, that is taken away also.

Personally, I would want to live my life free, free to make my own choices until the day God takes me back. I do not know what i would do if I were faced with the same choice for one of my parents.

What would you do?

Dads day is everyday

Artist Kelly J

Dad's heart is king-size and strong.
With his heart he built our lives and is a Husband, Father, Grandpa and Friend to many.
Dad's heart gives generously, serves humbly, and loves my mom unselfishly, completely and unendingly.
Dad held me when I was small, steadied me when I stumbled, and guided me in the right direction.
When I needed help, I could always count on my Dad.
Dad corrected me, disciplined me, shielded me, rescued me and protected me.
Dad's heart is strong and steady and filled with love.
I thank God for my dad who is always kind, always loving, always strong and still here at the age of 87.
I love my dad and know he loves me.
What more could I ask for in a dad.
Thank you dad for loving me, and being all that you are.
Your Daughter
Kelly J.

God who is in the midst of it all

Artist Kelly J 

My mother in law fell and broke her hip. I drew this photo before we knew anything.  We live out in the boonies so to speak, and the response of the Rescue Squad and the Ambulance workers was remarkable. The Hospital Doctors and Staff were incredible. And the love she was given from all whom came to visit and stayed with her during this time, was beautiful. To each smiling face that greeted us and cared for her, to the ones we know who came and stayed, we say thank you.

Happy Day

Artist Kelly J 

Thursdays are my free day, a day all to myself to do anything I want. I spent today Spring Cleaning. It feels so good when everything is clean. And then I spent time with my doggies, they are the best. And I had a great dinner with my husband and then relaxed as a family in the evening. Today was a happy day spending time with the ones I love.

Gathering their chicks under their wings

Artist Kelly J

Today I said a prayer as I always do, when I see such things as this. A trucker with a load of Birds going to slaughter, which always breaks my heart, but my prayers bring me comfort in knowing I have asked for the person driving to have a change of heart and to drive them to a sanctuary verses slaughter.

We are fearfully and wonderfully made

Artist Kelly J

This drawing was inspired by my day, I kept thinking about the labels that we give to people and life whether it be good or bad. Who decided to label someone anyway? Our Father in heaven tells us we are all fearfully and wonderfully made. I have always disliked labeling things. I pray that people learn to Love as God does and learn what is acceptable to Him, verses what the world is trying to tell us.

Storing up Treasures in Heaven

Artist Kelly J 

Whenever I drive by a Turtle on the road, i stop to help it across. The other day I saw a little Turtle and when I got out to help it, I saw that someone had hit it because the shell was cracked and it was gone. I felt so bad that it never had time to grow and live.  About 15 minutes later I was given a vision of God's hand holding the Turtle and letting him down upon my Treasure in heaven. I saw the little Turtle alive and walk off of God's hand and onto where I am storing up my treasures in heaven.

Do you store up anything as your Treasures in heaven? Read Matthew 6:19-21

Present Suffering and Future Glory

Artist Kelly J

I consider that our present sufferings are not worth comparing with the glory that will be revealed in us. For the creation waits in eager expectation for the children of the Most High to be revealed. For the creation was subjected to frustration, not by its own choice, but by the will of the one who subjected it in hope. Romans 8:18-20

ask the Animals they will teach you

Artist Kelly J

“But ask the animals, and they will teach you,
    or the birds in the sky, and they will tell you;
or speak to the earth, and it will teach you,
    or let the fish in the sea inform you.
Which of all these does not know that the hand of our Creator has done this?
 In his hand is the life of every creature and the breath of all mankind.

We are Family

Artist Kelly J

I was listening to a sermon, and a little girl maybe 3 years of age shared a story. She said she saw ducks who were angels and the little ducks followed the momma duck and she said to them, "we are family" and the pastor said we are all family. All of God's creation is one big family.
