In His arms...

Today is what I call a numb day. Kind of in a daze, not really interested in whats going on around me, and really I've been caught up in my own guilt for recent events and trying so hard to keep my focus on the Lord.

This afternoon I laid down to nap and this picture, no...a feeling, came to my mind. So I got up, put some tunes on, laid back down onto the bed and drew. Afterwards I stared at it and truly imagined being in His arms, being comforted by Him, and told that He loves me. It didn't necessarily change my mood, but it helped remind me of His presence here with me and in me.

Oh Sara, this is very moving. I'll tell ya something, I often wake up in the middle of the night and a vision of a new piece comes in my mind. I had one just last night and another one just a few nights ago. Sometimes I have so many and I have to get up and go sketch them in my art journals. This is a anointing that was placed on me a few years ago. It sounds to me this is what is happing to you.

This is a beautiful piece. I haven't been getting your feed on lj for a while so I'm behind on your journal. But I wanted to send a big **hug** to you because it sounds like you are going through a rough time right now.

Thank you so much, all of you, for such beautiful comments and prayers!

Mere, Yeah I moved it, seemed the right thing to do...easier url. :P Sorry for changing it on ya. I have VERY little exp. with rss feeds so I can't help. :( Love the avatar!

Holly, I'm trying to link literally everything I draw now to the Spirit. I hope I keep getting the urges to sketch like this. It was very comforting to place what I felt into an image. I've also gotten back into writing in my journal to God. That has helped SO much I think since I am very much in a "quiet" space right now. I am very much looking forward to what He has planned. :)

Dawn that would be cool to hang out again. :D (((hugs))) Send me those photos when you get the chance!

Rachel and April, thank you, it means so much to have your words!
