Mar.25th “Wanting To Know”

“Cezanne’s Apples”

"It’s said of Paul Cezanne that he studied apples endlessly. He wanted to truly know his subject matter spending much of his preliminary time engaging himself into every aspect of apples. Even when he painted, he would think over the colors, shapes, sizes, shading, reflection to the point that often his subject would actually rot before he would finish his work.

Do we spend time truly wanting to know someone? Is today’s society so self oriented that we’ve totally forgotten to put others before our wants and our needs? Are we so caught up in the world or our own myopic view that we would rather throw people and relationships away rather than find peace, solutions, or God’s answers? Do we think that Christ’s call on our lives has changed? Are we looking more at our self satisfaction rather than doing His will.

We’re a sick society that has ushered God out of our culture and we don’t even see the price we are just starting to pay for our disobedience and selfishness. Will we get back more than we bargained for? The wrath cometh and it won’t just pass by!"

“Lord, help us to see the wonders of Your hand each and every day
Help us to seek You first; forgive us for what we do and what we say
Keep us from the world and believing all the lies that we are told
Help us to see the fallacies and falsehood; help us to be more bold
Stay close and guide us, help us be in the very center of Your will
Ever reading Your Word, following Your commands, and Spirit filled!”

“Painters often are misunderstood and maligned, but true recognition does not come from the world. Have a great week!”

"Find my paintings, or may my paint-tings find you!"
