For Glory and Beauty

In His Marvelous Light” by Meghan Williams, Dyed4you Art

{introduction} God desires for us to treat ourselves with dignity. He believes we are worth taking care of and wants us to reflect the same attitude towards ourselves. For me, this came in the form of clothing, but for each of us, it is different. What is important is that our heart is to cherish and treat with care God’s creation, which in this instance is ourselves. With that introduction, this is the vision and download God imparted to me.

Barren No More

I am awakened by the sound of the wind. How I got to the wilderness I don’t know, but I am keenly aware of the ground beneath me. It’s dry and cracked with no life at all. I lift my eyes to look around and all I see is dry, barren, cracked ground. The wind sends the dust from the ground to and fro. I shield my eyes from the bright sun and the dust of this harsh landscape.  Continue reading “Barren No More”

Spring of Hope

“Sun of Righteousness” by Meghan Williams, Dyed4you Art

John 4:13-14 (NKJV) Jesus answered and said to her, “Whoever drinks of this water will thirst again, but whoever drinks of the water that I shall give him will never thirst. But the water that I shall give him will become in him a fountain of water springing up into everlasting life.”

There is a saying that goes, “Hope springs eternal.” As someone who battled the darkness of depression for over ten years, I once struggled to believe that such a thing was true. Anyone who has faced depression knows that hopelessness is a key component in that battle. Wounds of the past can cast such shadows on our path, that it can be hard to imagine and hope for better experiences in life. Continue reading “Spring of Hope”

Worth the Price

Isaiah 53:5 (VOICE) But he was hurt because of us; he suffered so. Our wrongdoing wounded and crushed him. He endured the breaking that made us whole. The injuries he suffered became our healing.

By design, I operate in the gift of mercy. However, I admit that the person I find it hardest to have mercy on is myself. Other than God, I alone know the depth of my sin. I know my record. I cringe when I see that the thoughts of my heart do not align with the heart of God. Unfortunately, harboring unforgiveness and contempt towards myself is a practiced behavior. Continue reading “Worth the Price”

Reign of the Eternal

 

“Forever Bloom” – by Meghan Williams, Dyed4you Art

1 John 4:13 (VOICE) How can we be sure that He truly lives in us and that we truly live in Him? By one fact: He has given us His Spirit.

In a vision, I saw the Father shaking a sunflower over His child. Water droplets fell from the sunflower and upon the childlike rain. I sensed that the essence of the sunflower was transferred into the water. Therefore, it was clear that the essence of the sunflower would saturate the child that the Father was sprinkling. Continue reading “Reign of the Eternal”

Cultivate Good Fruit

1 Corinthians 13:1 (TPT) If I were to speak with eloquence in earth’s many languages, and in the heavenly tongues of angels, yet I didn’t express myself with love, my words would be reduced to the hollow sound of nothing more than a clanging cymbal.

Beloved, to reflect My voice you must also reflect My character. One cannot speak of humility and have that word be well-received if one is steeped in pride. So be mindful to cultivate the fruit of My Spirit. 

It is more important that you accurately reflect My character than that you repeat My words. When the fruit of your character is sour, your words will taste sour too. So cultivate good fruit and flow from that place.  Continue reading “Cultivate Good Fruit”
