Sunday's Art Reflection - Hands

Hello Friends,

I hope you are enjoying this journey of looking back at some of my first attempts at art. Today's art reflection was done in 2008 at a home group meeting.

I was thinking back to 1995 when I was reading Deuteronomy. Chapter 13, verse 17 stood out for me. Sometimes the Lord will speak a personal message through a verse that is out of context. That is no way to study the bible and the 'message' should be tested against other scripture.

The verse is: "Nothing of that unclean thing shall stick to thy hand."

At the time I was training in personal prayer ministry. Some well-meaning Christians were telling me things like, "Be careful when you pray for someone. The demons might jump off that person onto you." I didn't think that lined up with scripture; certainly not with the way Jesus did ministry; but it bothered me nonetheless as these people were mature Christians and seemed quite knowledgeable.

The verse in Deuteronomy was the assurance I needed from the Lord that kept me from giving in to fear.
Thank you for visiting my blog. I am so glad you came here. Here is God's message to you today:

You are beautiful and you are loved.

Blessing hugs,
