Quote from: DianeL on August 10, 2009, 06:23:05 PMHave any of you ever tried this? I've seen it on-line as well as a woman from our mother church painted one for a member, it was amazing! Anyhow, I paint a little and thought perhaps one day I'd give it a try. Well, I was at a bargain store a couple of weeks ago and there was a water colour paint set on sale - really discounted, so I thought I'll buy it. I had a couple of old canvases from way back, I used to do oil paintings (just dabbling but won a prize at a fall fair a few years ago), so I painted them white to use them again. I wasn't certain how this was done so I just asked God what He thought about my church and city, this beautiful picture of a huge well with fire gushing out of it covering my church and city, my city's nickname is Corn-well. He also gave me a scripture for it out of Isaiah. Then, I asked Him about what He thought about my pastor, another beautiful picture came out. I said to God, this is for my pastor, I need a scripture, so He gave me one out of 1 Samuel. I took a deep breath, emailed the executive assistant at church and said I had a gift for my pastor. I went on Thursday just a little nervous. Needless to say, they received my paintings and we talked alot, my pastor was going to do a series on Holy Spirit and revival and he actually had tears in his eyes along with his assistant when I gave him his painting. It was amazing and a wonderful moment I was glad to be a part of. My pastor asked me next time we have a worship/healing service on a Saturday nite, he wants to set me up with my paints there and paint. I'm a little nervous on that but I've been practicing my painting at home. I felt God said, don't try to paint, let Me paint through you. You know, it's true, when I've tried (while practicing), it doesn't come out right.

I don't have a way yet to post them here. If I email them to you, would you post them, please?
