A COMMENTARY FROM THE HEART

It is always His will for me to seek His will.  – Charles F. Stanley

A pentimento (plural pentimenti) is an alteration in a painting, evidenced by traces of previous work, showing that the artist has changed his or her mind as to the composition during the process of painting. The word is Italian for repentance, from the verb pentirsi, meaning to repent.  ❤

Seek his will in all you do, and he will show you which path to take.  – Proverbs 3:6

Our lives are a canvas, and we paint each and every day.  We read our Bibles, pray, and paint.  The colors and textures vary, but there are times when we have to stop, repent, and let God start painting over everything on our canvas with brand new, bright, vibrant colors. ❤

Have you sought God’s will for your life?  When we allow God to be the Artist, it changes how your painting will look.  ❤

I’m absolutely hooked on making memes – designs – for my groups and pages on facebook and for this blog.  While that certainly does not take the same kind of talent as painting, some of the concepts can be applied.  Pentimento is common in my designing.  If I want to pop in a different photograph or if I need to correct a mistake (oh, surely that never happens – HA!), I just open the current work in my program and select the elements I want to use – then cover up the old elements with new ones – then voila’ – I have a brand new design.  ❤

Such is life – we make changes along the way – we tweak things here and there…  things such as losing weight to improve health, or changing hair color for whatever reason; however, as we seek God’s will for our lives, there are times when we have to do more than tweak.  We have to allow God to make significant changes.  God’s brush covers everything we need covered with His precious blood.  That’s the ultimate pentimento.  ❤
