Love never fails

Artist Kelly J

We are called to LOVE ... I believe this is the highest level we can achieve. To love sounds easy. But to Love all the time is not so easy. We have to learn to get to this level of LOVE. Here is a song I love about this lesson by Don Potter with the lyrics.

Why things happen to us at times

Artist Kelly J 

Lately I have noticed that sometimes I cannot speak, I am not sure why yet, but I am sure there is a reason. No matter what I seem to be going thru, it's Yeshua's way of sculpting and molding me into where He wants me to be. So, during this stage of my life. I rest and abide and one day, I will look and back and say, oh now I know why that had to happen. Have you ever gone thru something similar?

Guard your Heart

Artist Kelly J 

My drawing says Psalms, but is suppose to say Proverbs ... oops!

Get Wisdom at Any Cost
Listen, my sons, to a father’s instruction;
    pay attention and gain understanding.
I give you sound learning,
    so do not forsake my teaching.
For I too was a son to my father,
    still tender, and cherished by my mother.
Then he taught me, and he said to me,
    “Take hold of my words with all your heart;
    keep my commands, and you will live.
Get wisdom, get understanding;
    do not forget my words or turn away from them.
Do not forsake wisdom, and she will protect you;
    love her, and she will watch over you.
The beginning of wisdom is this: Get wisdom.
    Though it cost all you have, get understanding.
Cherish her, and she will exalt you;
    embrace her, and she will honor you.
She will give you a garland to grace your head
    and present you with a glorious crown.”
Listen, my son, accept what I say,
    and the years of your life will be many.
I instruct you in the way of wisdom
    and lead you along straight paths.
When you walk, your steps will not be hampered;
    when you run, you will not stumble.
Hold on to instruction, do not let it go;
    guard it well, for it is your life.
Do not set foot on the path of the wicked
    or walk in the way of evildoers.
Avoid it, do not travel on it;
    turn from it and go on your way.
For they cannot rest until they do evil;
    they are robbed of sleep till they make someone stumble.
They eat the bread of wickedness
    and drink the wine of violence.
The path of the righteous is like the morning sun,
    shining ever brighter till the full light of day.
But the way of the wicked is like deep darkness;
    they do not know what makes them stumble.
My son, pay attention to what I say;
    turn your ear to my words.
 Do not let them out of your sight,
    keep them within your heart;
for they are life to those who find them
    and health to one’s whole body.
Above all else, guard your heart,
    for everything you do flows from it.
Keep your mouth free of perversity;
    keep corrupt talk far from your lips.
Let your eyes look straight ahead;
    fix your gaze directly before you.
Give careful thought to the paths for your feet
    and be steadfast in all your ways.
Do not turn to the right or the left;
    keep your foot from evil.

Miracles are awesome

Artist Kelly J 

Another miracle that happened to me, I was out in Tampa Bay and wanted to take my dog out to the sand. But from where I was to the sandy spot was barnacles in-between. So, I picked up my dog to carry him across, and as I was walking a barnacle moved beneath my feet and I could feel myself going down. I threw my dog as far as I could, so he would land in the water and not be hurt. But, unfortunately for me, I landed where the back of my thigh got cut opened on a barnacle. It was pretty bad. I said a prayer and the pain stopped immediately. I asked for healing, so I did not have to go to the emergency room and I received my healing. It was not immediate, but I felt lead to know what to do and it healed without a scar in about a week or two. I never had pain. I was so thankful for my healing. And especially that my dog did not get hurt.

Doubting is not good

Artist Kelly J 

Doubt is never good when relating to Yeshua. It's like the time Simon Peter who was an Apostle stepped out of the boat and was walking on water, then took his eyes off of Jesus and focused on the waves and started to sink. Doubt takes away the miracle and the blessing. 

I had just gotten a new electric stove, the kind where the surface is smooth and all one color. When i was done cooking, I went to wash the top and forgot the burner was still hot and my baby finger touched the surface and got burnt. I immediately grabbed it tight to stop the pain and asked Yeshua to heal me. In an instant the pain was gone and right before my eyes the blister disappeared. I did not doubt my healing and was so grateful.

Yanawana Tribe that changed my life

Artist Kelly J 

Since I am sharing pieces of my testimony, this is a good time to say a prayer for His will be done for the Amazon Rain forest Fires that are raging there. I had the most amazing opportunity to meet a medicine man form the Yawanawa Tribe. I was working for a company at the time, who worked very close with the people of the Amazon. They taught how to live with so much respect, for the life that resides there, for the people, the animals, the plant life, the waters and Tree's and everything that was there. We were shown how to make medicine that would heal because of the respect for the life of the plants. Nothing is ever taken without permission, nothing is ever used unless you know certain aspects about it. Nothing was wasted or thrown away. 


This is me with 2 of the amazing men I met who lived in the Amazon. The owner of the company I worked for told us how long it took to get to their very remote village. A small plane down into a mowed out airstrip, then onto a canoe traveling for days, then on foot to the village. It was not easy to find them. But, I am ever so grateful for the opportunity to be there for such a time as this. It changed my whole perspective of life. I am beyond thankful for the time I got to spend with them.

seeing the good in others

Artist Kelly J

I have a social networking group that is secular and has been pretty good for the most part with one another. But the other day someone posted something political and wow, did I see a total change in the group and the people. The different beliefs raged war upon one another. I sat back and just read there reactions and was appalled by the venom that came out of their mouths. Why is it so hard for mankind to get along, even when they do not see eye to eye. One minute they can love and the next minute they can hate. It makes me sad, when people spew such hateful words at one another. Life can, be so good if we learn to not judge and just live, seeing the good in others.

on Fire for more of Him

Artist Kelly J

The last 2 post have lead to this post. After I got the magazine and bought the book, and after I sw the hand of God. I was driving to work one morning listening to a Christian Talk Radio program, The man asked if anyone had a miracle to share, to call in. I never called in before but felt lead to do so, to my surprise I was on the air. I shared the experience of seeing God's hand help my boyfriend to safety. And the radio announcer said to me "Isn't it amazing how God opens His scroll and reveals Himself to us" wow, that rocked my world. I was getting closer to my Maker each day. I was on fire for more.

Beyond Words

Artist Kelly J 

I met God when I was 10 years of age, I had a personal one on one experience with Him and heard His audible voice speak to me. When I was in my early 20's my friend Claire and I were having a conversation about God and she told me that I needed to be born again. Not really knowing what that meant at the time, she planted the seed, that God started to water. I started searching and seeking for more. On my last post, I shared about seeing the hand of God. But some events lead up to that moment. 

In the mail, I received a catalog to Benders Christian Supply. And on the cover was a book by Ron DiCianni called beyond words www.tapestryproductions.com/product/in-the-beginning-artwork-by-ron-dicianni ... I had never heard of that store, but I looked it up and it was right in my own neighborhood. That store was my teacher for awhile as I was searching and seeking.

The invisible becomes visible

Artist Kelly J

Back in the early 1990's my boyfriend and myself were riding bicycles down a road. My boyfriend was looking for an old friends house, as a car was approaching him, coming pretty fast down the road. I tried to call out to him, to move so he did not get hit, but no sound was coming out of my mouth. All of a sudden, I saw the hand of God come down from above and cup my boyfriend and gently guide him to the side of the road. Then he proceeded to share with me how he did not see that car. And how his bike was steering sideways. And then I said to him, your not going to believe this but I saw the hand of God, it looked like a cloud come down and carry you to safety. wow, I saw the invisible become visible.

Grateful that we have each other

Artist Kelly J 

My testimony is filled with daily occurrences of Hope, Joy, Love and Peace. I have been blessed overall in life. I have awesome parents who have always loved me and supported me. I have siblings who will always be close and my family. And I have an amazing husband, I live in paradise so to speak.  My husband and I have chatted, and even if we had to go back to having nothing. We would be okay. Because we have God and we have each other. We could live in a tent and find things to keep us happy. I am grateful for that. And grateful that we have each other.

An eye Opener

Artist Kelly J

I drew this several years ago, for a momma who wanted it on a cup and saucer. This month I am posting some oldies in my Artist Folder. My Art started in 2005 when I lost my older sister to cancer. She was the artist in the family. She made some beautiful pieces over the years. When she passed on, I prayed for talent like she had. I started drawing for a ministry that I was a prayer partner with. And God started to reveal things to me, that I could not know about the people, who came in for counseling. It was an eye opening time for me in my life. And I thank God every day for trusting me enough to let me be in that ministry for the time that I was. I learned so much.

Edgar's Mission

Artist Kelly J

I have always had a love for animals, these little lambs are part of Edgar's Mission. They are my favorite Farm Sanctuary. I would love to be like Pam Ahern who founded Edgar's Mission. It all started with a Pig, and now she rescues so many that are in dire need. She inspires me to be a better person daily towards all life.

Kindness

Artist Kelly J 

If we take care of ourselves, keeping a sound mind, healthy body, clean environment, no stress, we tend to be more at peace, having more faith, love and hope which helps us to be Kinder towards others. I personally strive every day to be a better person. To live with Kindness in my heart.

A life worth living

Artist Kelly J

LIFE is life. Look around you, there is life happening everywhere. Our Creator gives life to us. Death will be the last enemy to go under His footstool. We are called to live a life worth living.

my Relationship with God

Artist Kelly J 

I met God up close and personal in my own backyard, when I was all by myself, asking Him if He would save a Praying Mantis.  I heard His audible voice speak to me, as I made a promise to Him. I was 10 years old. After that moment in time, I was forever changed, I just did not know it at that time in the summer of 1972. 

The gap in between 1972 and 1995, I was living and experiencing Life, I don't remember anything specific about God. Just that looking back now, I was able to learn to be me.

In 1995 when I was 33 years of age, God really started getting my attention. I wanted to experience Him, like I did when I was 10. I wanted a closer relationship with Him. So, I started searching and seeking for more. And little by little He taught me, and lead me to learn about who He is. I learned everything that I needed to from Him, and today, I am still learning, only today I am 57 years of age and have walked with Him a long time. I could not imagine living life without Him by my side 24/7/365.

Every year for the past 24 years, I got closer to Him, knew more about Him and now let Him lead and guide my life. For I would not want it any other way.

A pair of Shoes that changed a life

Artist Kelly J

my testimony again ... I was shopping one day for a top that I needed and as I was shopping, I kept getting the unction to go to the shoe department. Not needing shoes, I listened and went to the shoe dept. It was there that a conversation was brought up with a woman who was looking for sandals. 

To make a long story short, she found a beautiful Dark Peach Toned dress and needed some sandals to go with it. I felt God nudging me as He led me to a pair of sandals that were the perfect color and guess what, they were also the perfect size. I brought them over to her and told her that they were on sale. She tried them on, perfect in every way. She loved them, but was hesitant to get them. 

God nudged me again, tell her you'll buy them for her, from me. So, I told her that I felt led to buy them for her, that God spoke to me and told me to. She smiled and said, that she was asked to be a greeter in her church but, knew she did not have anything nice to wear, and she said thank you!

The sandals were marked $19.99 and when we got to the register to check out. They rang up at $1.07, We all were surprised, even the cashier said there were no sales going on and even if there were nothing rings up at one dollar. $1.00 ... the woman and myself just smiled knowing that somehow God intervened and made it all happen that day. He loves to surprise us like that, at the least likely times and the least likely ways.

Seek the Truth and you will be free indeed

Artist Kelly J 

When we here something that sets us free, we are free indeed and know the truth. I am always searching for truths. I like to know when something began. I always question when things came to be. It's very surprising sometimes, to know something today, but go back to when it was first discovered. Our History for example has a beginning. Many of the stories over time have changed from the truths of what really happened in the time frame that it happened.

Take the time to discover hidden meanings in everything. 

Know that our Creator is our Father, and He is so good to those who want to take the time to get to know Him and fellowship with Him. His road is beautiful and perfect. He already sent His son to pay the price for all of us to live in the Victory that He gave to us. 

Y'shua came for the lost, once you know, you can choose to live in His freedom, His peace, His Victory. A gift for those who really know the truth.

Never quench His Spirit

Artist Kelly J

Another part of my testimony. The best way to live, is to never quench the Spirit of our Creator upon your life. You never know what He may have in store for you. This is an entire day shortened into a snippet of a story. My husband and I were suppose to go Motorcycle riding with a group of friends. But, God had other plans. I felt that strong unction not to go. And I am seasoned enough in my walk to listen. That afternoon we drove to town and when we got there I saw a man walking with a backpack and 3 dogs. He stopped for a break and we pulled over to see if he needed anything and ask him if we could help at all. Long story shortened. It took him a month and 1/2 to get about 800 miles. And he still had quite a ways to go to get to his destination. We decided to take him a little ways to help him out, but God had different plans and we took him and his 3 dogs the whole way which was about 250 miles. His name was Brian and God blessed us that day. It felt so good to help someone in need out. It would have taken him about another month at his pace because we live in the Mountains and the roads can be very treacherous for walking. I am so thankful that I never quenched Gods spirit that day.

Don't rush into anything

Artist Kelly J 

Another part of my testimony. When I was in my 20's many of my friends were getting married and having families. But, I was a late bloomer. I was to young at heart for that. But, I thought something was wrong with me at the time, because everyone else was ready. My mom with her wisdom shared this thought with me, that helped me to see my life from a different perspective. She said to me "Kelly, think of a little girl who is trying to catch a Butterfly with a net, she tries and tries and just cannot catch the Butterfly. Discouraged she takes a break and sits down, and low and behold, there is that Butterfly who lands upon her shoulder." 

We should not have to be like everyone else. We are all on different Journeys in life. I lived my life backwards so to speak. I lived enjoying everything while I was young and could do lots of things. I did not feel ready for a serious relationship till I was about 29 years of age. And I did not get married until I was 48. Today, I am 57 and thankful, I did not rush things, because Life has been really good to me.

a Fathers Arms

Artist Kelly J

Another part of my testimony, my earthly dad always was our protector. He always had his arms around his family. His example taught me a lot about my Heavenly Father.  He was the kind of dad who never brought work home, when he was with us, he was our dad. I am blessed and thankful he is still in my life and still so young at heart at 87 years of age. I love you dad!

Learning to Love

Artist Kelly J 

Another part of my testimony is learning to LOVE without conditions or expectations. To try and learn from others, verses judging them. To be silent verses being sucked into gossip. That is a hard thing to do in this world. We are called to Love as our Father in heaven loves. Every day I strive to get better at this.

No Boundaries in Heaven

Artist Kelly J

One day I was walking down the street, talking with God, as I always do, and was in that "awe" type of moment, where His Spirit is so strong, He feels close enough to kiss my cheek. Life feels so beautiful and perfect in those moments, I wish I could just stay there forever. It is in those moments, there are no boarders or boundaries, that separate us, and the world feels perfect. I love those moments.

Safety and Protection

Artist Kelly J

A piece of my testimony ... a client of mine shared this story with me one time about God's safety and protection. Her niece was walking thru Central Park one evening, and as a man was walking towards her, she had a very uneasy feeling, and immediately prayed for God's protection. He passed her by and she never thought anything about it again. Until a couple days later she was making dinner and noticed on the news, a sketch of the man's face, who made her feel uneasy. The news asked for help and she called the police to share her story. They asked if she could come in and pick him out in a line up, she agreed.

Making a long story shorter, she was called to court, When she was on the stand, they asked the man why he did not choose her as a victim, the evening he decided to rape another. His answer stunned my friends niece. He said, because she was walking with 2 huge body guards by her side. When they asked the niece why she never told them that, she paused for a moment to think, and realized that her prayers brought God's promise to her for safety and protection.

wow, I never went anywhere or did anything again without praying ... and my life has been blessed because of prayers. God is sooooo good!!!!

Thankful 4 Life

Artist Kelly J

I have learned to be thankful for life. Thankful !!! Think of that word and it's meaning. What are you thankful for?  I am thankful everyday, that I am always surrounded by beauty and color. I am thankful for the sounds that I hear in nature, and the whispering of the Tree's. I am thankful that I never lost my innocence and that my parents are still alive. I am thankful for my husband, who really loves me, for me. I am thankful for the life I was given. I am thankful for so much ...

Rest with God

Artist Kelly J 

I will be sharing pieces of my testimony for this months drawings. This drawing says "Rest with God" I have learned that we need rest, if we are to rejuvenate, renew and repair our mind, body and spirit. Rest is our natural healer. When we rest, we must quiet everything. We are content in the moment, letting go of everything and just resting.

A Great Quote
