In honor of Pop Legend Roy Lichtenstein this style lends itself to the simplicity of the image in this form. The image is a reflection when I natural world crashes with our spiritual world .In those times of grief the Lord has left us with this promise. Blessed are they that mourn: for they shall be comforted. Matthew5:4 Amen.
High and Lifted UpIn the year that king Uzziah died I saw also the Lord sitting upon a throne, high and lifted up, and his train filled the temple. Above it stood the seraphims: each one had six wings; with twain he covered his face, and with twain he covered his feet, and with twain he did fly. And one cried unto another, and said, Holy, holy, holy, is the LORD of hosts: the whole earth is full of his glory. And the posts of the door moved at the voice of him that cried, and the house was filled with smoke. Then said I, Woe is me! for I am undone; because I am a man of unclean lips, and I dwell in the midst of a people of unclean lips: for mine eyes have seen the King, the LORD of hosts. Then flew one of the seraphims unto me, having a live coal in his hand, which he had taken with the tongs from off the altar: And he laid it upon my mouth, and said, Lo, this hath touched thy lips; and thine iniquity is taken away, and thy sin purged. Also I heard the voice of the Lord, saying, Whom shall I send, and who will go for us? Then said I, Here am I; send me. Isaiah 6:1-8
Nosaka comes to me from the strength of the young tennis champion Naomi Osaka. I praise you, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made. Wonderful are your works ; my soul knows it very well. Psalm 139:14 In these trying times we need to be reminded of the challenges we face in our mental health . Be encouraged to address and confront them instead of saving face and going off the deep end to please others. Remember it is our uniqueness which presents our greatness unto the glory (goodness) of God. Amen
Beauty of HolinessIn these trying times we need to be reminded of the Beauty Of Holiness offered unto the Lord as he moves us from glory to glory and from faith to faith. Give unto the Lord the glory due unto his name: bring an offering, and come before Him: Worship the Lord in the beauty of holiness I Chronicles 16:29e
Enter InBut the wisdom that is from above is first pure, then peaceable, gentle, [and] easy to be intreated, full of mercy and good fruits, without partiality, and without hypocrisy. And the fruit of righteousness is sown in peace of them that make peace. James 3:17-18 God Bless. While in my morning meditation I asked God to encourage me with a word so that I can go into this day aligned with him. This scripture in James Chapter 3 filled me with great joy.
Our Daily BreadSecond in my series of images denoting the power which resonates as we become knowledgeable of the image of God through His son Jesus the Christ. As Jesus presents the example of the "Lords Prayer" it compels us to meditate daily on the request made before heaven and it's power to free us from the attempts of the evil one and spirit which removes us from the glory of God9
Living Water RainFor the Lamb at the center of the thr one will be their shepherd; he will lead them to springs of living water. And God will wipe away every tear from their eyes. Revelation 7:17
This image represents the power of the living water as it is ministered through prayer. It is our prayer life that will produce the result favorable through the precious Lamb who sits on the throne. Amen
Big BoyThis image is created in memory of a blues legend Arthur"Big Boy" Crudup my namesake who is a distant relative to my father, Reading his bio it is incredible how three of his songs turn out as three of Elvis Pressley"s big hits.
RevelationFor do I now persuade men, or God? or do I seek to please men? for if I yet pleased men, I should not be the servant of Christ. But I certify you, brethren, that the gospel which was preached of me is not after man. For I neither received it of man, neither was I taught [it], but by the revelation of Jesus Christ Galatians 1:10
MournBlessed are those who mourn, for they will be comforted. ..........Matthew 5:4 Everyday we all mourn the many challenges presented to us on a daily basis. Mourning doesn't always mean the dead. You can mourn the circumstance of your life which come in many forms. Relationships usually account for many moments of mourning for instance break ups, divorces,domestic violence, employment incidences and most of all the unexpected momements when those individuals who were apart of you life and no longer here.
Sweet SavourFor we are unto God a sweet savour of Christ, in them that are saved, and in them that perish: 2:16 To the one we are the savour of death unto death; and to the other the savour of life unto life. And who is sufficient for these things? 2:17 For we are not as many, which corrupt the word of God: but as of sincerity, but as of God, in the sight of God speak we in Christ.
I'am Not Your NegroInspired by James Baldwin's unfinished manuscript, Remember This House, a collection of notes and letters written by Baldwin in the mid-1970s. The documentary I Am Not Your Negro includes some of Baldwin's thoughts on the lives and deaths of his close friends and civil rights leaders Medgar Evers (assassinated in 1963), Malcolm X (assassinated in 1965), and Martin Luther King Jr. (assassinated in 1968)
MomIn reference to the wonderful mother’s day here in the New York area. I was compelled to render this wonderful image of a mother and son. Although my mother has passed into glory the image of a loving mother can minister to the best and the worst of us. As a momma’s boy it is pleasure to reflect upon such an image. Enjoy
Thank YouThis image serves as a reminder of the posture and glory when we give thanks to God. Our gratiude expresses an overwhelming desire to bless God with the image He created ,deposited and invested in is since the beginning of time. I believe that encountering this posture is a true expression of faith which is manifested daily in our lives. Therefore, since we are receiving a kingdom that cannot be shaken, let us be thankful, and so worship God acceptably with reverence and awe, Hebrews 12:28
Brotherly LoveBorn into a world that places an emphasis on self (narcisism) the perception of our existence is filtered and blocked by motives that are self defeating. Our Lord places an emphasis on loving your neighbor like a brother. The apostle Paul writes in Romans 12:10 "Be kindly affectioned one to another with brotherly love; in honour preferring one another; ".
ImageAnd the Lord said, Simon, Simon, behold, Satan hath desired [to have] you, that he may sift [you] as wheat: But I have prayed for thee, that thy faith fail not: and when thou art converted, strengthen thy brethren. Luke 22:31,32 Good Morning! Today is a day the Lord has made. Let us rejoice and be glad in it. I was blessed this morning with the peace of God concerning the time that we are in. The blessing reached me through the word of God out of Luke Chapter 22 starting in verse 31 through verse 32. It paints an image that while Jesus was dealing with Simon(Peter) that the desire of the enemy(devil) was to sift him as as wheat.
Living Water VHusbands, love your wives, just as Christ loved the church and gave himself up for her to make her holy, cleansing her by the washing with water through the word, Ephesians 5:25, 26 Number 5 in the Living Water Series the image provides me with an insight to the scripture in Ephesians Chapter 5.
DamnIn his second term in office there are some similarities to President Obama and his predecessor President Lincoln. In physical appearance both are lean , tall left handed and intelligent. Just like Lincoln he is damned if you do damned if you don't. I believe the presidency takes many years off the life of the President. If you ever look at a picture of Lincoln you kinda see a pic of President Obama. Notice how there faces are drawn in.
Living Water 111Blessed are those who mourn, for they will be comforted Matthew 5:4 Third in the Living Water series of images it presents the posture needed when going through our most challenging moments. In the fifth chapter of Matthew our Lord illustrates to us one of the many blessings recieved whenever we encounter this action.

This image is a rendering of a young man whose life was prematurely cut short through substance abuse. Although substance abuse is a symptom of what's really going on.It is sad to see such talent put to rest.
And the LORD said, My spirit shall not always strive with man, for that he also [is] flesh: yet his days shall be an hundred and twenty years.
120 Years of life is God's promise. Amen.
Jesus ChristSoon to return to Jerusalem to claim the Kingdom of Heaven here on Earth. The zero's are indicative of the fact that there is no time set. It can happen at any time. My advise prepare youself for His coming.
