“amazing grace”

“𝕒𝕞𝕒𝕫𝕚𝕟𝕘 𝕘𝕣𝕒𝕔𝕖” painted by the toes of Rosie Jon (with Community Bible Study Westport/Fairfield CT Children’s Ministry) | 36” x 24” Alcohol inks, acrylic inks and mixed media

My painting journey began with a simple prayer,

“Dear God, what do you think or feel about me?”

And the moment I picked up the paintbrush with my toes, I heard the voice of truth in my heart and soul say,

“You are my paintbrush!”

Since then, by knowing who I truly am in the eyes of Our God, I have been able to use my gift of painting to share His love and His heart with others.

At the centre of our story is God’s heart and at the end of our story is the crown of victory that He has for us. Our faith journey begins with us knowing who we are in Him; and understanding that it is His amazing grace that saves us — which sets us on a path that has been planned for us in advance. He has created us as His masterpiece to do the miracle work He has planned through our lives, by following His Way. Through trust and obedience, that is how we get to receive the gift of freedom, forgiveness, faith, love, grace and curiosity.
