His heart

My sketchbook contains many heart pictures from the last few weeks. Every couple of days, the Lord gives me a new pic with things growing out of His heart, or as in this painting, the Lord releasing from His heart.

Some of the hearts are surrounded with a robe – a representation, I believe, of His authority, righteousness, holiness and purity.

The calla lilies can be a symbol of beauty and innocence and also of the resurrection of Jesus as they bear resemblance to a trumpet, representing victory. Thought to be the flower of the Archangel Gabriel, and his announcing trumpet. Calla lilies are in a family of their own, neither callas, nor lilies. Just like us! In this world, but not of this world.  That was pretty fun to discover after I painted the calla lilies.*

The Lord is eager to release His water, His nourishment, His thoughts through His Spirit, and indeed His love. His eyes roam the earth for those willing to receive, who make room for His love and are hungry for more. Those in a receiving pose, so to speak.

Putting all of this together, let’s position ourselves to receive all He is pouring from His heart! Jesus!

“God is love, and whoever abides in love abides in God, and God abides in him.” 1 John 4:16
“Love the Lord your God with all your heart…” Luke 10:27
“…perfect love casts out fear.” 1 John 4:18
“Beloved, let us love one another, for love is from God…” 1 John 4:7
“For your love is better than wine…” Song of Solomon 1:2
“Come, let us take our fill of love till morning; let us delight ourselves with love.” Proverbs 7:18
“So now faith, hope, and love abide, these three; but the greatest of these is love.” 1 Corinthians 13:13

Go in the love of Jesus today!
