I went to a church in Orlando in late January called Sanando La Tierra Internacional. They are a Spanish speaking church and are seriously anointed. On this Saturday night I came to visit and do some worship painting. The Holy Spirit showed up in a powerful way. Here's a couple pictures of the service and of the painting I did.
I also had the opportunity to worship God before I got on stage to paint which was really nice. Worshiping Him always helps put us in the right mind set to get into His presence. :)

The flower buds are us before we know Christ when God is planting seeds in our lives to direct our steps and point us towards Him. Then we bloom when we meet Jesus and fully give our lives over to Him. Then as we press forward in our walk with God, we get lit on fire for Him and soar like meteors out into the world which is a dark place and we are transformed into stars, bright lights shining in the darkness. Jenn saw the lights almost as birds flying too. There is a whole in the wall where, Guy tells me, that when they first bought the place, he was trying to patch up for a paintable surface but couldn't because of all the sand within the walls. As we was doing this, he felt so discouraged and he thought how this place is such a "whole in the wall"; it's so far away and out in the middle of the city where there's not a lot of church going people, kind of in a run down part of town. Fast forward back to me painting, he's watching me and God totally uses my painting to minister to him because I'm taking this whole in the wall and i put a bright light in it and paint around the edges and the inside of the whole, making it beautiful.
That is what I want my art to do. Glorify God and minister to people for the glory of His kingdom; to help all the earth look towards Him. :D
Next I went to Cranes Roust where a couple of my friends hold Worship In The Park. They are playing songs and I'm eating a sandwich from Chick fil A. I'm looking out into the water and the sky and listening to the birds and the fish splashing and I see a turtle swimming near the dock I'm standing on. I'm just overcome with all of creation and how beautiful it is and fun to hear all the birds in the sky and the fish in the sea. God speaks to me and tells me, "I made all this for you to enjoy". All of creation was made for us. So naturally I have to paint the turtle. lol I wasnt really sure why the turtle and not a bird or fish but it just had to be the turtle. Little did I know, Christina, playing the drums, walks over, sees my painting and exclaims, "Oh I LOVE turtles!" haha (I think to myself, THAT'S why!...and also...this is your painting. lol) I gave it to her and she, honoring me, hung it on a wall in her house. :D I'm so blessed! I love Jesus!
These were the skies that were overhead when we were worshiping. :D
Hung with my girls, Tanya and Reida after serving single mothers at Orlando Resque Mission Center. As we prayed together I saw this and its what God sees us as, these bright lights in the darkness. Also it has a couple meanings, the Holy Spirit hovers over the darkness, over the waters. It also is pointing to our triune God, the trinity and how "where two or more are gathered, there I AM". You are solidified when you have felloship just as you won't fall over if you are standing in between two people; as opposed to if you're by yourself, you may fall to the right or to the left.

p.s. (I didnt know this when I painted it..) but recently God showed me that the red part in the painting represents the people of Santiago and how He is coming to bring them into His kingdom. :)
