Tempest web
Tempest – 8×10 oil on canvas

I’m very intrigued by clouds lately. Such drama displayed in the sky. Ever changing and moving – yet constant in its existence.

This recent painting was sparked by photos of tornadoes. Such powerful untamed forces. I think of the great power and majesty of God. Nothing can stop Him yet He is so gentle to give us freedom and choice.

Do we want to stay in the storm, fighting on our own or let Him take the lead?

God is a safe place to hide, ready to help when we need him. We stand fearless at the cliff-edge of doom, courageous in seastorm and earthquake, Before the rush and roar of oceans, the tremors that shift mountains.
Jacob-wrestling God fights for us, God-of-Angel-Armies protects us.

River fountains splash joy, cooling God’s city, this sacred haunt of the Most High. God lives here, the streets are safe, God at your service from crack of dawn. Godless nations rant and rave, kings and kingdoms threaten, but Earth does anything he says. Jacob-wrestling God fights for us, God-of-Angel-Armies protects us.

Attention, all! See the marvels of GodHe plants flowers and trees all over the earth, bans war from pole to pole, breaks all the weapons across his knee. “Step out of the traffic! Take a long, loving look at me, your High God, above politics, above everything.” Jacob-wrestling God fights for us, God-of-Angel-Armies protects us. 

Psalm 46 – The Message
