Sharing my work...{Finding Sanctuary - Part 14}

Mustard seed, blue-bird feathers, 3 little egg-like stones in a nest (representing the Trinity)...
(Texture Tuesday folks, the rest of this post is about an healing through art series, so you can read on or stop - just thought I would let you know!)

  Remember - Today is your day to spend an hour with God - share in the comments if you are so led!
As promised, here is a look at my own notes from the mind-map exercises.  Today I am simply sharing the "listing of the color connections"...
damaging - other's emotions (like what happened to me as a child)
need a new "go to"
fear resulting in:  a) acting out of own strength; b) acting unfaithful; c) a poor witness to my family
my "go to"
acting out of own strength*
learned behavior
there is no fear in love
fear of punishment
fear of unknown
make a plan
*need to find the line: a) discernment vs. fear; b) fear of God vs. carnal fear
Embrace Imperfection 
James verse (man's anger doesn't achieve God's righteousness)
Healthy, yet healing
feels immature
rooted - in childhood
there is no fear in love
fear of punishment
righteous vs. unrighteous   
No Color:
How can resolving this glorify God and help bring healing to others?
no peace
being childish or being childlike  
After writing all this down, I did have more insight.  Here is what I wrote:
a)  I can see a juxtapositioning as I record these: 1) mature vs. immature; 2) righteous vs. unrighteous; 3) fear of god vs. carnal fear.
b) Also the idea of roots
c) I am thinking of what Peter says about Sarah - how she didn't act in fear (look up that passage).
d) Rooted - what am I rooted in; what do I need to be rooted in?...I believe I am rooted in the Word, yet here is an area that is not quite yet (I began to get an image in my mind - a vision - of what my personal root system looks like)...scriptures about roots: Ephesians 3 passage; Psalm 1 rooted and growing; bitter roots (Ephesians 4 verse); rooted and built up (Col. 2:7)...I am beginning to see why I have pinned so many images of trees and sketch all different styles of them!!!  I looked up more passages about "roots" - Hosea 14:5 (wow!); Proverbs 12:12; Jeremiah 12:2; Isaiah 27:6; Isaiah 37:31; Romans 11:16; Romans 11:18; Romans 15:1-14 (You are so good to me Lord...); Matthew 13:3-9; (Rev. 22:16)...
So, there is a taste of the process for me...oh, this whole idea of roots has a big mixed media piece rolling inside of me!!!  Will it be done by Easter?  Perhaps, but this piece will truly be part of His working it out in me...so I do not know...
