|Beautiful Fall 6"X6" Acrylic on canvas|
The beauty of dying leaves (up north) create this beautiful array of hues! Through the process, I began to think of our choice to die to our reliance upon ourselves- to take care of our own problems, sorrows and/or deficiencies, and instead simply allow ourselves to fall into God's grace. That is beautiful and that will in turn create a life that would otherwise not surge on its own: true life- filled with grace, joy, power, and freedom.
For to be carnally minded is death; but to be spiritually minded is life and peace. Romans 8:6
I found there to be a subtle but significant metaphor between the changing of seasons from Fall-Winter, and ultimately Spring to the death to our self-reliance, and in turn true reliance on God.
Be blessed! Be inspired!
