Oil on Canvas

"I pray that the eyes of your heart may be enlightened so that you may know what is the hope of His calling, what are the riches of the glory of His inheritance in the saints, and what is the surpassing greatness of His power toward us who believe."
Ephesians 1:18-19

The beginning of faith is to believe. I look at the fragility of a butterfly and then ponder the strength it took to break free and the knowledge that it comes through with such complexity, splendor and wholeness. I cannot help but believe our Father aches for us to believe in Him, always - in all ways; deeply, honestly, passionately, so that we can break free from any and all bondage that tries to keep us crawling and inching as the caterpillar does. I also believe it is His desire for us to forgive and keep forgiving so that we all can be free to rise above and flutter our beauty in the Higher Community of His Love. Hallelujah, Shalom and Amen in Christ.
