heart-condition

Here is a piece of art that I drew in 2006 when I moved out to Albuquerque, NM. I wanted to share it with you because this is a visual history time line (from right to left) of my “walk” with JESUS CHRIST. So that’s me sitting down praying; to the right, is the dark worldly forest that I broke out of that year. Above me is the hand of Jesus soaking me with His pure redeeming blood. I asked Jesus into my life when I was 4, but I didn’t understand the fullness of His love and grace until I was about 20. So I became His true friend in 2006, and He used what He had already placed in my heart, the Holy Spirit, to set me free in a lot of areas. Where the Spirit of the Lord is there is FREEDOM and POWER. The big blue cloud, that says GOD, is His covering over me, He’s always been there for me. The Lightning bolts represent His beauty and splendor; while I was in Albuquerque I also understood what it meant to fear Him, because He is so magnificent! So the Holy Spirit is the candle; the open window in the heart represents my time away from where I had previously settled around stale air. When the window of new opportunity was opened it let in a fresh “Breath of Life” that re ignited, “this little light of mine”. The fullness of His presence, represented by the light blue cloud thing, came into my life and fully baptized me in the Spirit one night in our living room. The rainbow with music chords flowing out of the heart is the “new sound” and “promise” being released from me for others to see everyday. Notice the empty cocoon hanging off of the music note? That represents the death of the old me; and the new life, the green butterfly, is me after putting to death my old ways in the Rio Grande. I came up out of the cold river water being a brand new man in Christ. The stump is where I continue to lay my junk down and allow my God to remove any thing in my heart that is not of Him.

What are some of the things that you may need to lay down to get your heart right with God?
