One day, I finally decided to kneel in sincere prayer, asking God if I could just find some way to really connect to Isaiah’s words. My prayer was answered within the week, when a verse popped in my head, and I looked it up to see it in context. To my total amazement, I was faced with the exact answer to a difficult decision I was facing (more details in the Motherhood painting above).
Even though the answer was out of context for Isaiah, and I didn’t need to know an ounce of history to receive the help I needed, it changed my life forever.
These six paintings represent the additional major changes that resulted in my life when I finally learned to study Isaiah with my heart instead of my head alone. The stories are personal, but the principles are universal, and I invite you to consider the ways they speak to you.
I’m here to tell you that if I can connect with Isaiah, anyone can connect with Isaiah! My goal is not only that you feel something you haven’t felt before, but that you will gain the courage to study him for yourself, with your own heart. You don’t need expert middle men, or 500-page commentaries … you just need you, your story, the Spirit, and Isaiah.
Lest you think I am advocating that we never use our heads when we study, rest assured that I absolutely love academic deep dives, too…but only when the academic questions come from my own heart (check out my Beauty painting above to see what I mean).
