a painting from a few years ago

October 1, 2009

I made this painting in 2005, the spring just before I left for Mexico City. It was a gift to my sister for her birthday, and it hangs on her wall today:

While painting these, I listened to “You Said” by Shane and Shane over and over. It was a great time to pray over my upcoming mission trip. Little did I know that I would one day move to the UK! Notice how the flag is featured in the center of the painting.

Flags have been very significant to me in this process. Anytime I have had doubts about whether God was calling me or not, I’ve seen a Scottish flag on a car in front of me. When I am hanging out with other people, I like to point Scottish or British flags out to people, so they know I’m not making this up!

Psalm 2:8: “Ask of me, and I will make the nations your inheritance, the ends of the earth your possession.” Oh Lord, I ask for the nations!
