A motive in the human heart is like deep water, and a person who has understanding draws it out. Proverbs 20:5
I did this piece of artwork a while back when I was having a frustrating “Art Night”. I didn’t really think that much about it at the time. It wasn’t until I got a package in the mail a few days ago that I realized what I was feeling when I made it. God had directed a friend of mine to make this picture into a dress and send it to me, along with a message that pierced my heart.
It was encouraging on many levels. One of the neatest things about it was that God showed me how he can use very unusual things to touch somebody’s life. I mean, a prophetic dress? Who has heard of that? Yet this is one of the most meaningful things anyone has ever given me.
I’ve discredited a lot of creative ideas that I’ve had because I thought they seemed too weird. “No body else does things like that!” But I am slowly learning to be okay with the way God made me and to operate in the gifts He’s given me without always trying to figure it out…
Great post! I found your blog from Spoonflower – I am trying to branch out and create some stuff there (my screenname is palmettohandmade). Maybe we can swap some fabric and purchase each other’s designs when Spoonflower is out of beta! :)
I am also a follower of Christ. I love you blog and how God-centered it is! Merry Christmas!
Thank you! Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to you too! That will be really great when Spoonflower is able to put all the designs up for purchase. I’m following your design work there. You’ve got some really cute ones!
