Wish I could Paint God’s Glory

Have you had moments in your life where you were so inspired, you wished you had the skills to capture it? Like paint or write about it?

That’s how I feel when I read Matthew 3:16-17.

16 As soon as Jesus was baptized, he went up out of the water. At that moment heaven was opened, and he saw the Spirit of God descending like a dove and alighting on him. 17 And a voice from heaven said, “This is my Son, whom I love; with him I am well pleased.”

Just pause and read it over and over.

This image is unbelievably moving to visualize. I like to fantasize what it would have been like to live when Jesus was on earth. This moment is at the top. I feel like I am not even worthy to read these most glorious words.

What scriptures do this to you?

  1. I share this sentiment. Sometimes I wish I could sing worship songs beautifully and sometimes have the skill to draw or paint. It usually comes when I am out in nature and enjoying the beauty of the Lord’s creation. All heaven and earth are full of His glory 🙌🏽

  2. “What scriptures do this to you?” Almost any about Noah! But especially Genesis 8, and most particularly, verses 19-20: “Every beast, every creeping thing, and every bird, everything that moves on the earth, went out by families from the ark. Then Noah built an altar to the Lord and took some of every clean animal and some of every clean bird and offered burnt offerings on the altar.”
    A “fun” song that was written many years ago is Noah Found Grac in the Eyes of the LORD,” but all the youtube videos of it do a pretty poor job.😟 It’s better performed at about 1/2 speed and less showmanship.


    1. I just listened to Statler Brothers and that IS A FUN SONG ! 🎵 Thank you for sharing CA! Visualizing all the animals leaving the ARK is right up my alley since I love animals. Thank you God for giving mankind another chance.
