I can hear the rushing of Eagle Falls as I sit on a rock overlooking Emerald Bay at Lake Tahoe. Many shades of blue, green, and gray surround me. Thankful for my strength to climb to this place, my heart is full. Early in the morning Jesus called me to come and meet Him here. The vision of God’s beautiful creation comforts and soothes my soul. I pull my journal from my backpack, ready to record the word He has called me to hear.
Why do these tears appear wetting my eyes? I see a heart formed in the clouds and hear an angel whispering, “For you.”
I write the words I hear in my heart,
My everlasting love for you can shelter you, can bring you a peace like today in the busiest intersection of life, in transitions, and in turmoil. Between heaven and earth is My Holy Spirit in you, powerful and gentle, strong with peace, courage that is pure without anything to prove. Who He is, you are becoming. His power is working in you, my beloved, my dear.
The voices of people may come and go, but my voice stands firm and ever present whispering and at times shouting into your heart.
My presence abides in you. Be engaged in my love.
Is there anything you need to fear if I stand guard over your heart?
I am distracted by a loud humming that sounds like an airplane overhead, but there is no plane in sight.
Just like the blaring sound overhead you hear that can distract you, an airplane overhead is loud, so can circumstances in life cause you to wonder… but that sound, that distracting noise cannot change where you now sit… you are in a pleasant place, a peaceful place, resting in my presence. You wonder, when will the noise stop. Refocus. Set your mind on where you are seated in heavenly places, on the side of a mountain. The noise cannot move you, cannot shake you, cannot touch you.
Lord, it is loud. Maybe it’s not just an airplane… it goes on and on and on.
Is it changing where you are seated, does it change your view? Look. Now it’s gone.
It did not change my position or my circumstance… but I am glad that noise is gone.
This is how troubles can affect you. They create noise, but you haven’t moved, nor have I.
I stood with you.
Look around you. What do you see?
I see that I’m seated next to the edge of a rock; just a few feet from danger – it’s fifty feet to the next level.
Are you safe?
Yes. I like it here. There’s adventure and safety with You, Lord. The noise eventually stopped.
The troubles will eventually cease… there will be longer periods of rest compared to noise.
All of us, then, reflect the glory of the Lord with uncovered faces; and that same glory, coming from the Lord, who is the Spirit, transforms us into his likeness in an ever greater degree of glory (2 Corinthians 3:18 GNT).
For he raised us from the dead along with Christ, and we are seated with him in the heavenly realms – all because we are one with Christ Jesus (Ephesians 2:6 NLT).

Moses was tending his father-in-law’s sheep and goats on Mount Sinai when he saw a supernatural sight, a bush that burned but was not consumed by the flames. He turned aside to get a closer look and heard the voice of God calling his name.
Moses was a man destined for greatness. He was saved by an Egyptian princess and raised in the pharaoh’s household. But, when he saw the injustice his people suffered, he killed an Egyptian and fled for his life. He lived quietly as a shepherd for many years in a distant land. One day the great I AM called his name from the flames in the midst of a burning bush. God called Moses into a destiny far greater than any pharaoh ever achieved. He led a nation of slaves into freedom.
Underneath this painting is picture of a burning bush I painted seven years ago. That picture had red, orange, and yellow flames. I felt Holy Spirit inviting me to paint over it, to create a new picture. I followed the lead of Holy Spirit and used only red, orange, and yellow. But, this time I drew blossoms. I added iridescent gold paint that made the colors shimmer with light. Finally I added a touch of blue. I loved this new picture so much more than the old one. I looked at it and asked the Lord for a title. Did I hear “Burning Bush?” The “Burning Bush” restored?
I painted this picture on New Year’s Day, 2015. I wondered about the significance of this picture in relationship to the first day of the new year. I posted this picture on Prophetic Arts for Jesus, a group on Facebook, and asked for feedback. After reading their response, and prayerfully considering the meaning of this picture, I concluded my painting is indeed called, “Burning Bush.” It speaks about the coming year, 2015.
The burning bush is a miracle, a supernatural occurrence through which God spoke to Moses, a man who didn’t feel adequate or capable in two ways. He lacked power and a voice. God gave him a staff that had miraculous power. He told him that He would help him speak and even tell him what to say. And when that still wasn’t enough, God gave him a companion, his brother Aaron to help him. God promised to help both of them to speak. He indeed provided.
The call was to rescue a people locked into slavery, a people who were crying out to God from the heavy burdens of the oppression of bondage.
So, Moses went in faith to Egypt to rescue the Hebrews with the promise of power and a voice. He led God’s people into freedom.
Here is a type of shadow of things to come, things that have arrived, and are coming forth.
Today the burning bush is the miracle of the resurrection of Jesus. God has provided the power of Holy Spirit who gives his believers a voice. The power and voice are one in Holy Spirit.
I have seen a vision of the resurrected Jesus and felt his love for the lost. Jesus was in the dirt for the love of mankind. Jesus is in the miracle of the resurrection calling out, “Go and rescue my people who are crying out from the oppression of slavery to sin. Bring them into the promised land, into freedom from sin!”
All who have ears, let them hear.
Jesus will have a glorious harvest of souls this year.

The Lord gave me this prophetic picture for the year 2013.
This year will be awesome for Christians. New exciting ministries will be
birthed, launched, and set into motion in HIS LOVE!
This picture flies! Winged creatures represent the presence of God.
For those Believers who have been searching
earnestly for more of His presence and peace, this is the year when the
adventure with Jesus takes wings and flies. Be ready to receive a new anointing
from heaven to bring excitement and peace into your life and into the lives of
any who long to receive MORE of HIM! The Lord is releasing a new thing into our
hearts! This is not a time to withdraw or just decide to stand back and watch.
It is a time to press into Him with more courage and boldness than ever before.
He is waiting for a signal from you to ignite His fire and release His
anointing for new things, more freedom, more joy, more of Him in everyday life.
The body of Christ will be the place where fun happens. Jesus will be taking
many of His children on new adventures with Him! Lives will be changed! Hearts
will be ignited with a fresh love for Jesus and brethren!
Fresh fervent love for Jesus is just a will away.
Let your will be His will.
Come, Lord Jesus, come!

I woke up sad last week. I spent some time with Jesus, writing in my journal as usual. I received a word from Him that the end of the day would be better than the start. I took a walk around the Marina, and then I took a hike and photographed some wild horses… love being around them… but still, I felt so sad. So, I ate dinner. Immediately I had indigestion and pain. This was not unusual lately. My stomach did not receive food well for months. There’s nothing like pain to facilitate crying out to God for help. Clearly, I understood that I needed to do art. So I wiped my tears and applied ribbons of color on paper by faith. What would this picture become? I had no idea, but it felt so good to do art while worship music played in the background. I started drawing in one direction, then turned the paper another way. My concentration was intense. I knew the picture was nearly finished, yet still, I didn’t know what shape all the colors were forming. Finally, I completed the bottom right purple shape. I saw it formed a long heart. Then, I looked at the whole picture and exclaimed, “It’s a heart!” I laughed out loud! Jesus loves me! All my sadness and pain instantly disappeared as Holy Spirit filled me up with the realization of God’s amazing love. It took just a little more color on the top left to complete the heart.
I look at this picture and smile at how clever Jesus is to call me to make a heart by faith! He told me, yet again, that He loves me! Yes, the end of the day was so much better. Joy is so much better than saddness. Thank you Jesus for your everlasting, forever, amazing love.
He loves me. He loves you, too. Our heavenly Father doesn’t prefer one of His children over another. His love is more than enough for us all!
I see seeds of faith planted in this heart overflowing with joy and freedom. What do you see?

Love and faithfulness will meet;
righteousness and peace will embrace.
Human loyalty will reach up from the earth
and God’s righteousness will look down from heaven (GNT).
The wonderful meeting these words foretold was fulfilled in Christ. He faithfully loved and obeyed our heavenly Father through the agony of sacrifice all the way to the cross. Jesus rose from the dead to receive glory, honor, and power. Jesus is the author of Christian faith. To those who will believe, He gives truth, freedom from sin, and a new blessed life.
The horse on the left is a stallion and the one on the right is a mare. The stallion represents Jesus and the mare is His bride, the church. One of her eyes is hidden by her hair because her vision is beyond the natural world.
Jesus calls us to love God and one another. Love cannot survive without faithfulness. Let us be faithful to God and one another. He will be faithful to us.
When we partner with Jesus in the power of Holy Spirit, we will be transformed and enabled to do His will. Yes, this is possible with God. I testify that this is true. He is faithful and loving and true to me. He will do the same for you. Jesus is bigger and stronger and full of more joy than you can hold in! You may have to shout outloud for the joy that feels like an explosion inside of you. It happens to me. It can happen to you.
May you know the love of God that is so deep and wide and long and high that you shout for joy! Maybe even dance a little.

God is Love is my prophetic painting that features vibrant rainbow colors to form 3 shapes that swirl in motion to create an explosion of love. When I painted this picture, the room was alive with God’s presence as worship music played in the background. I felt challenged to illustrate 3 shapes that were intricately connected yet visibly very different and unique. Yesterday, when I looked at this painting at an angle, I saw a wave of God’s glory captured in action. This painting illustrates a bit of the heavenly realm that can be felt in worship. His powerful presence stirs in me a shout of joy!
I intentionally join with Christ to create prophetic art and move into heavenly realms.
Following is a word I received from Jesus about prophetic art…
It is a way to bring heaven to earth…
to plant seeds of faith through vision…
It shows my face to the world. Just as music touches the soul, art reaches into the soul and stirs my love and mercy.
Prophetic art is done in union with me, and my blessings shine forth from it. It speaks to the heart, where I dwell. In prophetic art, I connect with the artist who produces a good work, a good deed in art. What is a good deed but a demonstration of my love? My art is a demonstration of my love, an expression of mercy and grace.
Let me stir my answer in your art.
Let me stir passion in you.
Let worship come from deep places in your heart. To praise God’s glory is to spark life into you. To use art to express worship is to share worship.
Sing into art and watch it stir up living water.
In our union with Christ Jesus he raised us up with him to rule with him in the heavenly world (Ephesians 2:6 GNT).
We join with Christ to create prophetic art and move into heavenly realms.
