When Faith hits the ground

I never liked Fabric paint. Looked down my nose on it for many years. I was arrogant. I maybe even thought that someone with a Masters degree in Fine Arts should paint with real paint.

I was wrong.

A lady asked me to make some special curtains for her. It had to be on transparent material, so she could still see the garden through it, but it also needed to give some privacy. The curtains were meant for a bathroom. A not so easy task. Most commissions inspired by Heaven are.

They stretch me, they humble me, and they are great teachers. All arrogance fly out through the window. My dependence on divine Grace becomes absolute, and my trust has to grow to a place where I know, that I know, that I know, that if He thinks I can do it…I can do it. With a lot of help from my friends, and the angels around me. I do believe there are some special ones assigned just to me for such a time as this…☺

Growing through Grace

Looking back I realise that those wonderful assignments have been significant places for growth, because it is impossible to do it on my own. I have to have faith, I have to believe by walking it out in the physical (you have to start somewhere, and get your hands dirty).

But I am never alone.

Like the time a few weeks back when I started making concrete bowls using plastic. Yeah, really.

I prayed and prayed, I thought and thought, and played the process out In my mind over and over. I started watching videos on Youtube about how to make concrete bowls. After many, many hours I knew a lot more, but not enough to know how to actually do it.

I had to start. So I bought the plastic bowls. I did it! But I hadn’t started yet, but I had the plastic bowls. By divine intervention I saw that I could build the shapes upside down , but had missed the detail of placing the plastic bowls upside down over the sand. A friend helped with the confirmation of how I could do it…he added the part of the bowls over the sand, upside down, and then working on top of it. Ok, so I had the confirmation, and the plastic bowls…I just needed to do it now! A wonderful process, it keeps my feet on the ground, my eyes fixed on the One who I know can do all, and my head out of the clouds! Nothing going on there …its all fluff!

The moment when Faith hit the ground…running

There was a moment when all the concrete just started running off the bowls. It looked totally impossible, even ludicrous to be doing it like this. But I know that He showed me it could work, so in faith (and some fear and trembling), I carried on. Within the next hour it was as if Heaven collided with earth. The bowls started taking shape, and started setting. The same friend (thank you!) came to help with the shape and the sides, so I learned how to work with concrete and to plaster it into a specific shape.

Wow! Concrete is an amazing product!

I learned the most valuable lesson. That if He believes I can do it, I can do it. It doesn’t matter what it is, as long as I know that He is with me, I know that His Spirit will teach me, and show me how.

Another friend who walks this path alongside me asked me the other day if I could now do some concrete pot holders. I surprised myself with my answer.

“If the Lord gives me the project, no matter what it is, I can do it.

That is a whole new level of Faith in me.

And the vehicle for building that into me was to make some concrete bowls that could be used as a fountain. Now I just need to figure out how to do some Mosaics on it, that can last through any type of weather.

I take another step. The angels are waiting for me. Heaven is smiling at me.

Let me get going. Goodbye for now.
