The Spirit of the Lord is upon me...

Was watching Bill Johnson's teaching on youtube and pray-reading Isaiah 61 last night and this morning, and then received the Spirit of Prophecy bulletin by Bill & Marsha Burns in my email today. Chills I tell ya, chills. I've been getting Isaiah 61 prayed over me by different people for the past two or three weeks. Significant much?! Finally understood this: Don't be praying for what God has already given you! Declare His truths, thank Him for them and be set free!

Rise up with renewed hope and faith that nothing is impossible with Me, says the Lord.  Release your concerns and distress to Me.  I cannot deal with that which you do not give to Me.  Trust Me for strength where you have been weak and peace where there has been turmoil.  Do not be afraid; I am with you to bring you through every dilemma and cause you to be strong. 

Isaiah 61:1-3  1 "The Spirit of the Lord GOD is upon Me, Because the LORD has anointed Me to preach good tidings to the poor; He has sent Me to heal the brokenhearted, to proclaim liberty to the captives, and the opening of the prison to those who are bound; to proclaim the acceptable year of the LORD, and the day of vengeance of our God; to comfort all who mourn, to console those who mourn in Zion, to give them beauty for ashes, the oil of joy for mourning, the garment of praise for the spirit of heaviness; that they may be called trees of righteousness, the planting of the LORD, that He may be glorified."

I S A I A H   6 1

The Year of the Lord’s Favor

The Spirit of the Sovereign Lord is on me,
    because the Lord has anointed me
    to proclaim good news to the poor.
He has sent me to bind up the brokenhearted,
    to proclaim freedom for the captives
    and release from darkness for the prisoners,
to proclaim the year of the Lord’s favor
    and the day of vengeance of our God,
to comfort all who mourn,
    and provide for those who grieve in Zion—
to bestow on them a crown of beauty
    instead of ashes,
the oil of joy
    instead of mourning,
and a garment of praise
    instead of a spirit of despair.
They will be called oaks of righteousness,
    a planting of the Lord
    for the display of his splendor.

They will rebuild the ancient ruins
    and restore the places long devastated;
they will renew the ruined cities
    that have been devastated for generations.
Strangers will shepherd your flocks;
    foreigners will work your fields and vineyards.
And you will be called priests of the Lord,
    you will be named ministers of our God.
You will feed on the wealth of nations,
    and in their riches you will boast.

Instead of your shame
    you will receive a double portion,
and instead of disgrace
    you will rejoice in your inheritance.
And so you will inherit a double portion in your land,
    and everlasting joy will be yours.

“For I, the Lord, love justice;
    I hate robbery and wrongdoing.
In my faithfulness I will reward my people
    and make an everlasting covenant with them.
Their descendants will be known among the nations
    and their offspring among the peoples.
All who see them will acknowledge
    that they are a people the Lord has blessed.”

I delight greatly in the Lord;
    my soul rejoices in my God.
For he has clothed me with garments of salvation
    and arrayed me in a robe of his righteousness,
as a bridegroom adorns his head like a priest,
    and as a bride adorns herself with her jewels.
For as the soil makes the sprout come up
    and a garden causes seeds to grow,
so the Sovereign Lord will make righteousness
    and praise spring up before all nations.

Tree on tree action

Every year we have a color/theme debate and in the end, the red-white-green-&-gold combo wins out. It's just so cheery! My genius father who generally doesn't give a flip about decorating, inexplicably went out and bought a mini gold metal Christmas tree - that's meant to be a stand-alone table piece - to top the tree (a tree on a tree lol) and we were all, 
"Nuh uh, that's never gonna work." But of course it did and it's perfect. Love. Men are such surprising creatures!

in progress

Mountains of Myrrh
this one's driving me a little crazy. It's my first real attempt on canvas so am being extra persnickety about it and experimenting bit by bit. Wasn't sure where I was heading but Holy Spirit gave me directions last night so I'm just gonna give in and go wild! 

Ponyhorse is almost there

Planning a series called 'Mountains of Myrhh' and it's all swirling around in my head but there's no time! Need more time! Length of days! Maybe I can get some real painting done after the holiday baking season calms down..
