Ever since I was a little girl... I wanted to sing.
Not just sing but give others goosebumps kinda sing.
I took private lessons and even joined the church choir.
Nope... not even with lessons and putting myself out there did I become goose bump worthy.
I wondered why God gave that gift to so many but left me out.
As I grew older,,, I sang softer and softer.
I stepped back from the choir and hushed my voice.
For years I prayed.. Lord just give me a sweet voice and I can sing my heart out for you!
It never happened.
While I was working on some orders, I felt the urge just to paint...
No lines or limits... just paint.
So I started listening to one of my favorite songs
And I painted.. and bless my heart.. I sang.
I must have hit replay 10 times before my pictures was complete.
It just felt good to paint and allow the music to seep into my soul.
no rules or regulations...Grace met me there.
I hung the piece on the wall and even shared it on Instagram.
Words.. No words.
I fell asleep thinking about that canvas.
And. That's. When . It. Hit. Me
God did answer my prayers.
I was just too blind to see it.
I found MY voice.
It's in painting!!
I may not be able to sing like a canary, but His words flow through my paint brush.
This morning I could not get out of bed fast enough..
I had to finish this piece..
All of these years, I was searching..
And all of these years...
The words were just right there..
Waiting on me to find them...
I will lift my voice
To worship You my King
And I will find my strength
In the shadow of Your wings...
Are you searching for your voice?
I received a few emails asking to see the painting when finished and if I would sell it?
Although no two will be just alike, I would love to offer these to those wanting one.
It measures 34"x 34" painted on birch and distressed just a bit.
