We are spending an hour as a staff to stop and pray. We are praying for direction, vision, provision and clarity as we move forward. Day 6, this is what was revealed to me:
I see a paintbrush held by a painter. It is zoomed in so much that you can only see what is currently being painted. For most of the time, it doesn’t make any sense. As the viewer you are trying to figure out what is being painted. And then you see the painter make what appears to be a mistake. It is a smudge and the painter takes some time with this smudge. He puts the paintbrush down and spends time intentional time in this spot. Then He moves on, and continues to paint each continuous stroke. It is so smooth and with no effort at all….to the point where the viewer stops trying to figuring it out and sits in the wonder of it all. It is so beautiful and breathtaking to see it unfold.
Then you begin to see more, you can see how each stroke was woven together into this beautiful masterpiece. Then the smudge that happened was not an accident at all. It added depth and beauty. It told the story in a deeper way and allowed the light to shine even brighter.
There was no border. It was not complete. In fact the painter begins to add to the painting and it becomes larger. The masterpiece is growing before my eyes and it is amazing.
Then a second, very different masterpiece was shown. The painter lays them next to each other and begins a new work that is being formed into an even more magnificent creation. He marries the two together. You cannot see a line or a division between the two creations. When you look at the new creation, you do not see a fault or a division between the two. It is united as one and it is seen as one.
Yet, it is still not finished. More and more is added and details are added, making things are more defined. There are layers and layers of painting that takes place on the masterpiece. And though each layer is beautiful, together they are breathless.
I still do not know the meaning of this yet, I’m still praying for clarity.
Please join us in our 40 days of prayer for SHE.
