EVERY FACE TELLS HIS STORY, EVERY FACE SHOWS ME HIS GLORY


It was far from home, in Avalon of Orlando, Florida, that I found myself deep within a sea of stranger’s faces. Absorbedly, I lingered intently taking in the uniqueness of those who had held close the joys and sorrows of life. In each I found a canvas distinctively new and original baring an expression of His story. Formed of myriad colors, mysterious shadows and captivating highlights, each creation told of its Creator.

Upon a young mother’s face, I saw the expression of God's devotion for those He longs to call His own. Upon the countenance of a Father with his son riding a head above his own, I felt the great joy of the Heavenly Father spending time with His children. In a man’s longing gaze toward his wife, I experienced the Grooms desire to enter into a deeper relationship with those He loves. Within the eyes that looked out from beneath a dark and furrowed brow, I was reminded of His saving grace, His mercy and His hope. And contained in the freshness of a tiny baby’s face, I read of the new life that can only be found in Him.

As it was, it continues to be upon the many faces I encounter that He shows me His Glory. As I decide which ones to paint upon my canvas, may it be an expression to the world how magnificent a God I serve.

“…the whole earth is full of his glory” -Isaiah 6:3

Ilove this painting! You CAN really read people by there expression on their face. It really is amazing how God created each feature and it must be a great feeling to be able to paint that portrait and feel the same excitement and joy that they show!

Wow
Thanks for visiting my blog.
I was taken aback when you said...
"Purhaps you could educate me on what I am looking at in this post. I am finding "dicomfort" at not being educated enough to find discomfort in this image."
But after i have visited your blog, then i knew what the picture really was...
My blog views the whole scenario and event's that i encountered in the environment that is "alien" to me, thus i termed it as "Discomfort Zone"
Now i am about 200km upriver at a locality which is very much isolated from the rest of the world....with a population of about 10 000.Where i come from we have
a population of about half a million.
I feel discomfort because i am deprived of many things that i have taken for granted.
Thanks again.....and do hope you'll revisited "The Buwau98 Chronicles"

A wonderful work of art that helps me discern what is deep within your heart. ‘Out of the blue’, love manifest and Out of the Gray grace disseminate. Your writing is so full of images and those pictures, so full of poetry;glorious.

I just read something the other day about seeing people in the eternal state instead of their earthly state. That has been challenging.

Jim Baxter said...

Each individual human being possesses a unique, highly
developed, and sensitive perception of variety. Thus
aware, man is endowed with a natural capability for enact-
ing internal mental and external physical selectivity.
Quantitative and qualitative choice-making thus lends
itself as the superior basis of an active intelligence.

Human is earth's Choicemaker. His title describes
his definitive and typifying characteristic. Recall
that his other features are but vehicles of experi-
ence intent on the development of perceptive
awareness and the following acts of decision and
choice. Note that the products of man cannot define
him for they are the fruit of the discerning choice-
making process and include the cognition of self,
the utility of experience, the development of value-
measuring systems and language, and the accultur-
ation of civilization.

The arts and the sciences of man, as with his habits,
customs, and traditions, are the creative harvest of
his perceptive and selective powers. Creativity, the
creative process, is a choice-making process. His
articles, constructs, and commodities, however
marvelous to behold, deserve neither awe nor idol-
atry, for man, not his contrivance, is earth's own
highest expression of the creative process.

Human is earth's Choicemaker. The sublime and
significant act of choosing is, itself, the Archimedean
fulcrum upon which man levers and redirects the
forces of cause and effect to an elected level of qual-
ity and diversity. Further, it orients him toward a
natural environmental opportunity, freedom, and
bestows earth's title, The Choicemaker, on his
singular and plural brow.

See: Joel 3:14 Psalm 25:12 kjv
